MY FAVORITE PLACES TO HAVE A DRINK ARE 2 AND 8; AND RUNNING IN A CLOSE SECOND PLACE ARE 7 AND 19.
#8 is for me. I’ve always dreamed of an Irish Pub in my basement, plus I don’t want my wine bottles exposed to the light.
One of the deluxe treats included in many mansions is a “wine cellar & tasting room.” completely faced in stone, usually with vaulted or domed ceilings, the cellar fitted with custom crafted wooden racks and cubbies for bottles, and the tasting room, sporting a wrought iron chandelier with flickering bulbs, is often large enough to be an alternate dining room. These crypt-like grottos ooze with romantic medieval charm.
The first thing I thought when seeing this post was, “cheap bastards-trying to make their bar stool seating do double duty.” Then I examined the pictures and concluded all was not lost. Some of these mix disparate atmospheres – ancient with modern, and they suck; some are just big glassed-in coolers that look more like retail displays than residential luxuries. But a few manage to pull it off without murdering the atmosphere in either one – Photo 13 is a winner, 8 and10 are runners-up.
#1 is the bomb!
