When I started the Top Five Lists last month, I promised that I would feature some private home bars that are pretty amazing. Today, dear readers, is that day. These are the bars that I wish I had in my own house- the ones I want to come home to after a long day at the office. Sadly, the generic freestanding bar in the corner of my living room is going to have to do for now. Without further ado, the Top 5 Movie Bars (Private):
1) The Clutterbuck Home, The Party
This is pretty much the ultimate in home bars. Mid-century modern styling, a fire pit, a bar that disappears with the flip of a switch to make room for a dance floor, enough vodka to make a beautiful starlet fall for a homely waiter, and a parrot in the corner. Howdy Par-ten-er.
2) Jackie Treehorn’s house- The Big Lebowski
Porn stars, White Russians, an Epcot Spaceship Earth ceiling, and furniture made out of concrete. All the ingredients for a good time.
3) Jorgenson Residence- A Summer Place
A Frank Lloyd Wright-designed house, on the beach, with a fully loaded cocktail bar. I’ve just described my personal version of heaven.
4) Mrs. Robinson’s house- The Graduate
Classy and seductive, just like Mrs. Robinson herself.
5) Greenville club, Django Unchained
This skirts the line at private because it appears to be some sort of 1800’s speakeasy in a Victorian house, but certainly the guest list is limited. I’m not a fan of the, ahem, “entertainment”, but the bartender looks mighty competent. Is that a coconut tiki drink I spy in Leonardo DiCaprio’s hand??
