Default HOME BAR CONCEPT - pour your own or tend bar

I am planning a home bar and am planning designs and concepts. I have a theme and am set on building a kegorator out of a full sized fridge and investing in a push button liquor dispensing system for around $800. Then I began to think that if I were intertaining I don't want to be stuck behind the bar. Does anyone have a concept on a pour your own drink bar. The closest I can think of is 50's style home bars that reset into the wall (no bar back). Then again maybe this is just a bad idea.

Really you could have a "standard" bar and just tell them to go behind and mix a drink. There is always 1 person in a crowd that likes being a makeshift bartender. the Push button liquor dispenser sounds sweet!

And welcome to the insane asylum.... I mean forum....

Push button liquor dispenser seems a little gay. If folks are gonna self-serve, they can pour it from the bottle just as well as push a button.

THANKS BLAKE THIS IS EVERYTHING I DREAMED. The auto liquor dispensor is $400 for 5 bottles - I wanted a lot more than 10 bottles but I also wanted push button get drink - I'm saving for one of these.

we take turns, a certain person has to do it every time. or if they lose a bet or something.

We all chip in and tip a few bucks each so people don't mind doing it. but after everyone starts to get trashed we usually just get our own, because by the end of the night we are all over the place.
