Not sure how to design bar and what materials to use...walls are exposed brick and beadboard. Floors are dyed concrete.....like urban rustic decor

Hi, just logged on and caught this as the first discussion... I'm currently doing a studio space in steampunk/industrial style, which may be similar to what you are asking about. Using reclaimed pipe as legs for bowling alley tables, Kil-arc vapor proof light fixtures, Toledo stools for the conference table (an old high school shop table with butcher block top and lockers below). Lots of sandblasted metal and reclaimed wood, re-purposed furnishings, galvanized metal, salvage doors and windows, exposed timber trusses. Check eBay and Etsy for industrial style or steampunk and you'll find a lot of products to fill in the space. I like the idea of using sheet steel screwed to your 2X4 bar height wall and then cover the screw heads with the really big domed upholstery tacks. Kind of have to let the imagination run wild on this stuff....

The demolition photos are in my project portfolio here on Houzz. Walls are almost up and the big Glu Lam beams are going in next week. The ginormous refrigerator door we salvaged is in place to close off unwanted areas...just had to buy a 36" wrench to adjust the door....

It's kind of a Victorian futuristic thing.

Love Ironwood's ideas for the bar. If you're looking for decor for the room Joss and Main is having a sale called city loft.
