The Bourbon Theater custom circular bar. This one was a challenge but definitely worth it. We also redid the facade of the bar.
This bar came to Frosty in a dream…one of his friends told him he wanted the coolest Husker Bar around. One night Frosty had a dream of a glowing Husker N with lights that had a waving effect. He drew up the plans, got the go ahead, and created one of the coolest Husker Bars in the state. With stainless steal and a glass overlay of a painted football field, the bar had everything his friend wanted and more. The best part about the whole bar was the way ‘Frostys’ Glow’ made the whole thing come to life. To this day, it is still one of the most eye catching ‘light’ projects he has created.
This bar was built in modular units for ease of transport if ever needed. Each section contained its own leveling feet, interior mounting brackets for the under-counter lighting, and structural steel shelf supports for storage areas for extra liquor. The one thing I can’t tell you is how we got the lights to come out as we did. This info is top secret.
The logo for the Thunderbird, the thunderbird head – was hand replicated by Adam Heart of Denver. He tattooed the bar and I took a grinder to it. The intricacies of texturing stainless steel still amaze me. As you can see, we textured the entire bar top with various levels of feather marking to go with the flame and thunderbird theme.
Along with the invisible snowman, TMCO designed these laser-cut logos and name plates for us as well.The Stainless Steel countertop and the skin sections were fabricated and powder-coated by TMCO. We designed the frame, welded it and prepped it for TMCO to powder-coat.
