I did a lot of research, and looked at similar items on many different sites before finally buying this one. Actually, I had originally purchased a more expensive product from a different company because I thought I liked the color of wood better. When it arrived it was damaged, and the quality was shoddy compared to what I expected for the price. I ended up with this one, and am so glad I did. I recently developed a bit of mixology hobby, and my hobby was overflowing my countertop. This cabinet has plenty of space to hold my vast collectedtion of liquors, bitters, and glasses, in a fashionable/attractive package. Having teenagers in the house, I like the option of being able lock it all safely away, too. You should know that this is a large/cumbersome item. I paid extra for white glove delivery, and am so glad that I did. There is no way that I could have ever gotten this in my house and in place. Two big guys had a heck of a time. Also, unless it's a straight shot to where you want it, make sure they wait to unpack it until it's in the room you want (and you may want to put felt gliders on the bottom to help move around in the future. I did and it helped tremendously. I had them on hand, and as the guys inboxed it, we slapped them on). The people that delivered my defective item unboxed it outside my house. Had it not been damaged, it definitely would have been getting it inside, as it was a similar size to this one- huge and unwieldy, and in need of some force to lug around. If you're contemplating this purchase, I would recommend it. The only reason I didn't give it five stars is that one of the doors is hung slightly off. It took me awhile to notice, and it's fixable, but that causes that door to slowly swing closed, instead of staying open, so it's not currently perfect.
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!!
This is a beautiful cabinet and it holds a lot! It seems very well made, of quality craftsmanship, and good materials. The cabinet itself is 5 stars. The Overstock customer service experience was 3 stars which was only salvaged at all by the Amazing Daisy (customer service manager) who by herself is a 5 star gal. The delivery experience is 1 star. SIZE: This cabinet is HUGE and yet not so huge. It really does hold a LOT but the cabinet was shorter than I expected. 74" seems tall but that includes the 6" of crown moulding at the top. The interior height is only 68". The cabinet is very VERY heavy!!!!! I had felt feet ready to be put under the corners as soon as it was unpacked. So glad I did because otherwise it would have killed the floor. In addition to the corners there are "feet" that unscrew. These are to the inside of the corners, not on the corners. Be sure to felt those as well! (You use these to tilt the cabinet back, which will help the doors stay open) Because we didn't know about them, I now have little circle imprints on the wood floor. They are small but something to consider. STORAGE: There are 7 rows of hanging glass storage and each row will hold 3 white wine glasses. My white wine glasses are 3.25" wide and 2.5" wide and I could only get 3 of either size on each row. It also held 4 champagne glasses but 3 Red wine glasses was a stretch. I found the best way to optimize storage was to not use one of the hanging racks which allowed me to have 2 rows of glasses on the shelf between the hanging glasses. There is also a good amount of space on each side of the hanging storage for shelf items. We didn't want/need the wine racks in the bottom and needed more storage for big/tall items. We found that they easily slide out of the tracks by pressing the "hinge", much like most any cabinet drawers. (I did not remove the track attached to the cabinet) We now have storage for those big 1.75L bottles that are too fat to fit in the doors. LOCK: Yes it does have a lock. My key was taped to the glass shelves that go into the cabinet. Those glass shelves are housed on top of the cabinet. So be careful when you unpack it! Note - some reviewers have mentioned the key was in the packing slip so be sure to take your packing slip off the box before they take it away. PRICE: You can regularly find this cabinet for $1900 and $2500. It was around $1500 on Black Friday which is a steal. It is a nice cabinet but I wouldn't pay more than $2K for it. If you can find it (or have a coupon) for less, then IMO it's a good value. DOORS: The piano hinges seem to bear the weight of all the heavy glasses & bottles well. The doors are a little off but I've found that they will "catch" if I close the left one first. If I close the right one first, they don't latch. It's a little annoying but not worth sending it back and is barely noticeable. DELIVERY: Was a comedy of errors... Delivery takes 1-4 weeks and we were at the outside of that timeline. During the 4 weeks I had rcvd email confirmation of order, tracking info etc. When I checked my account on the 4th week there was no longer any tracking info. I called Overstock to see what was going on and they said I'd rcv a call from the carrier the same day. I never receive a call... 2 days later I got an email that they couldn't reach me! This after having already contacted Overstock, made sure my contact info was correct, delivery info was right and that there was no info to suggest they had ever tried to contact me or make a delivery attempt. To top it off, this email said that if I did not call the freight company immediately I would be on the hook for a $1500.00 charge to deliver the cabinet back to Overstock. Yes - they wanted me to pay One Thousand Five Hundred Dollars for return delivery because something in their process failed! Of course I called because I really wanted this cabinet but I had to make 3 calls to 3 different places because the freight company was totally disorganized. Anyway, they delivered it 2 days later but that in and of itself was an anxiety inducing experience. One guy was pretty cool, the other guy just manhandled the cabinet (I still can't believe he didn't break it) ripped the packaging apart (to the point where I found styrofoam and staples had been thrown 20' away), had no care for my home and made a big mess for me to clean up. Needless to say I hope I never have to go through that again... I will say though that is was packaged so well that they didn't break it :)
Gave 3 stars due to my experience putting it together and issues I encountered with the doors. Took a few hours to put together. Right side panel had small marks but are not visible where it is placed so no huge deal. There were two holes in the metal foot that were made too small so I was unable to screw the nails to in, luckily all other screws fit tightly so it wasn't a huge deal that they were left out but nonetheless unacceptable from a build perspective. Also there appears to be a flaw with the left hinge where the door does not completely catch onto the magnet so I am able to close the door but unable to push in the door to open. Again I'm able to still open the door with a very slight pull but again unacceptable flaw. The hassle of packing returning and paying to ship back would have been way worse that the end result which was not bad at all. All in all the cabinet is sturdy and very nice looking. Looks as it does in the picture. Got an okay deal on price but would had felt better if I had paid about $100 less given my experience.
