What Houzz contributors are saying:

John Hill added this to 5 Modern Pavilions and Pool Houses
The exposed bar includes the pool and a patio, both covered by a trellis, which serves as an armature for lighting and plants. The enclosed bar runs parallel and is seen in the distance.
Rachel Grace added this to Make Outdoor Magic With String Lighting
Strung over a pool, lights provide double the twinkle through reflection.
