Here is a diagram of the 10' wall section of the bar. I will have to redo the electrical and rough-in for the wet bar which will require some dry-wall work. I'm also going to have to snake a coax from my utility room to this wall for the in-bar TV.

Looking ahead I'm going to be adding some games. This is a limited edition "Marble Links Golf" game that I acquired. I'm also looking at getting a multicade stand up arcade game.

After a great deal of deliberation I've decided to modify the inexpensive low-end in-stock unfinished cabinets at Lowe's. They will be primed and painted black. The panel is an insert of 5 mm bead board paneling also from Lowe's.

I've spent the last four days working on the bar and thought I would share some pictures. I've installed all cabinets, re-routed the plumbing, wired all the electrical, built the bar framing, and will soon be installing the countertops and the bar top. For the bartop I'm using laminate flooring with a crack sealer but installing it in a way that will allow me to change it out if it gets damaged. The bar will be two-toned with all cabinets painted black and some of the bar front a deep red mahogany to match the laminate bar top. Note: The close-up of the bartop is just to illustrate how the bar rail and laminate flooring will be installed - these pieces are not currently attached. The wall cabinets will have mirrored backs and are backlit with rope lights.
