liquor cabinet/dry bar?
What did you guys do, looking for something modern to store my goods and/or use as a dry bar instead of just having things on kitchen counters or in kitchen cabinets.

i don't have anything fancy. i have a wine fridge that fits about 30 bottles. then on the back side of my pantry, i have a cabinet where i keep all the glasses, bar ware and bottles. there's a raised counter extending out from my kitchen next to it and bar stools for you to sit at.

yeah, I have a pass-through from the kitchen to the living room too but I have low shelves there where people would be sitting, haha.

we're trying to sort all that stuff out in our new digs as well... including figgering on a place to put our wine fridge.
i'll let you know what we come up with, and i'll take pics.

I did quite a bit of searching antique stores till I found a nice bar cabinet from the Art Deco period. The top raises as I pull down the front shelf. It's mirrored inside and holds a nice selection of bottles, glasses & accesories. Below the top section are 2 lockable doors which open to more bottle storage.
Mine is simular to this Google Image Result for http://www.valuejockey.com/images/productImages/you1_md.jpg

cool, this kind of bar/liquor cabinet is what I'm looking for but the hardware is not my thing but I like the clean lines.
I need dark colors, black or close to black though.

heh, your original post made me think of these:
Wine Furniture, Wine Rack Furniture & Wet Bar Furniture | Pottery Barn
they're more traditional than modern and they're pricey. i always see them in the catalog though when i'm looking at/for other stuff.
here's one at crate and barrel:
Parker Spirits Cabinet | Crate&Barrel
too bad west elm doesn't have anything (that isn't s***), they tend to have some good modern pieces.

Yeah, I see the traditional ones a lot, I want something more modern/contemporary. You know, cleaner lines. heh. I looked at West Elm, I think the have 1 bar offered online.

There was a pretty awesome dry bar at my local modern furniture boutique but it was $1850, lol...before the economy went to crap it was a consideration but not anymore. :(

I hate shopping in general!!! I haven't checked the place out lately but the company that made the dry bar is no longer producing furniture. I don't know if they have any left over stock at the place.
It matched a 3 section console and coffee table from the same line so it would match well. I didn't buy any of them. lol
