Mullet home bars, Deco-style

 

Get the flash player here: http://www.adobe.com/flashplayer

Last week I was in Houston and happened upon this antique store on Westheimer Rd. It majors in Art Deco and minors in home bars. Cool home bars. The kind that fold in upon themselves like Transformers and hide their liquid stores and shakers and glassware from prying eyes. What you got in there? Who needs to know? It's just ordinary, innocent furniture. Prohibition? Never heard of it.

These are the ultimate mullet bars: Business up front. Party in the back.

Someday I will buy one. Last Sunday was not that day.

Added bonus: The store is just a few blocks from Anvil Bar & Refuge.

Pride and Joy Antiques, 1727 Westheimer Rd., Houston. (713) 522-8435.
