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 very nice cabinet. I gave 4 stars only because it is a bit off and wobbles but that could have been how we put it together. It is real wood, not particle board... it does have a strong odor from the stain but I imagine that will go away in time.
This is very nice looking and I think it will be quite functional--and the Overstock price was almost $100 lower than the net best for the same item. For the price, it's excellent. The "but" applies mostly to assembly. The system of cams and camscrews thathold all the pieces together is not adequately set up. For the two,pieces to interlock, the peg must be in the wood at a n exact height. The instructions do,not state this. It would seem logical to include a line on each peg to indicate how far into the wood it must go. Furthermore, not all holes were cpmpletely straight, so the pegs tilted slightly making it difficult to do a peg and hole assembly when necessary. We knew it would be a long and arduous task, but better instructions and assembly aids would have made it more straight forward and avoided double work--put the board on, try the cams, unscrew the two that are good, lift the board, raise or lower the camshaft that didn't catch, put the board back in place, try again, repeat until it catches, re-do the two that were okay from the start. This did not happen only once! One more disappointment is that the beautiful oak top had four or five slivers chipped off along the bottom edge. I just used a wood stain to fill them in and they look fine, but there shouldn't have been damages in the first place. I'm sure I could have complained, but we just wanted to get it put together and finished. Why four stars with all the complaints? Again--I really is quite nice for the price! Just be prepared!
