I was looking for a cabinet to store all of our bar needs and cane across this one on another site. Overstock had it for much less of a price than any other website. I was able to call and ask questions on this and the representative could answer most of them. I was trying to time the delivery as the item said 30 days but the representative determined it was much less of a time period. The item actually gets shipped to a second delivery company and they contact you with several delivery times. The delivery was top notch. I had it within 2 weeks but could have had it in 10 days f I was available. They came into see where the item was going and made sure there was room to get to the spot and enough clearance on chandeliers etc. Then they unpacked it completely outside prior to placing the bar exactly where I wanted it inside. I was able to inspect the item prior to them leaving and never felt rushed. They took all styrofoam with them and cardboard so it was an easy clean up. The cabinet comes fully installed except for two pieces of glass. One is the clear glass shelf and the second is super heavy piece of black glass and goes on top of the lower counter to protect the wood and make for easy clean up. The cabibet is very heavy and excellent quality. Very nice cabinet especially for the price. I ended up going with the black instead of the dark brown because I have expresso furniture accents in the room it was going and I was afraid the brown would be to light in color. I'm glad I chose the black. I'm able to store all my liquor bottles however the big handle ones do not fit in the door as prior reviewers indicated. This is normal with any bar as most are designed to mimic a speed rack behind a restaurant bar and those only fit the 750ml bottles. Regardless we placed the larger ones on top of the glass on the counter portion. The unit does need to be plugged in and will take both plugs to make it operate properly. However there is a whole other set of plugs within the unit for blenders, etc. This is a real display piece and is quite large. Make sure you have plenty of room for it as the doors are able to open fully and remain open during a party or entertaining. I also suggest that you have the felt pads to place on the bottom while the delivery guys have the unit tipped on the dolly (if it's going on a hard surface) because the unit is super heavy and not easy to do afterwards. I love this bar and love the price I paid on overstock. Their customer service is excellent!!
The instructions to put this together were the worst instructions I've ever seen. Some of the pieces were not even labeled. I almost threw it down the stairs because I was so frustrated. Also, it is almost black in color, not that nice, rich brown you see in the picture. They need to take pictures with more honest lighting for a better representation. Other than that, we like it. It seems sturdy and it functions as we need it to.
doors, and therefore both the door handles, are slightly uneven. Doesn’t appear to be something that one can fix just by tightening the door hinges. Otherwise looks just as the photo
We love he look and function as we wanted something with a enclosed cabinet for our glass wear to keep the dust off things. We have it in our kitchen near our door to the deck, which we go through many times a day. I assume that the vibration from people walking past it, causes he glasses to move around. Atleast once a day I was having to rearrange items so they wouldn't clank around when walking past. I ended up cutting some black rubber rug nonskid to line the shelves with so glasses would stop moving around! Its much better now and probably wouldn't be a problem if it was not in a high traffic area. It took my husband about 30 min to assemble. Where the magnetic piece goes, did not have pre drilled marks like everywhere else but luckily we were able to measure and get it in the right spot the first time, might be difficult if you're not handy. Overall, it serves the purpose well, just needed some adjustments for our placement of it.
