I want a bar! Let’s just start it off with that. . . And H agrees – so I guess I could say “we want a bar”! Lately I’ve been looking around for vintage serving trolleys to use as the bar – think I have found one ready for a pick up not far from where I live. So now we are writing a list of things we need to get. . . To make our bar the coolest bar alive – mostly we just want to be able to make the drink of our dreams at the right moment. For me the right moment would be the second I come home after a 5 day shift – or when I’ve got some unexpected but not unwanted guests… At the top of our list of “bar-to-get” is a vintage serving cart/trolley or a cool table that would do the same job, some cool barware (I am a sucker for Dorothy Thorpe barware – if only I could find some around my area), the best ice bucket ever – tons of great spirits (especially Bombay Sapphire – gin me up) and some non alcoholic items as well. . .
Here are some examples of what we want the bar to look like:

Now my plan is to get home this weekend, put my list of “look-for-it” items in my bag and head out for a bar hunt! I know the easy bit will be hunting for the spirits – but the most fun bit will be the vintage hunting. . . Just crossing my fingers I’ll find the perfect serving trolley – I’ve found several great ones online – but they are not shipped to my remote country – oh the horror!
Wish me luck!
