Just what we needed! This is perfect for the DIY type. We saved a ton of money by ordering a custom bar from this seller. Very professional. Quick responses. We even had the option to have it stained before it shipped to us. Love the ebony color we chose. Put together in two and half hours with two people. I was worried that the wood might not be heavy enough, thinking it would fall apart. But once it was put together it seems very sturdy. I highly recommend this product and shop! Thank you!!
My experience was extremely excellent. I was cautious after reading some of the reviews but gave it a shot. I'm glad I did. The form for requesting the type bar I wanted was easy. The quote came right in. Payment plans worked out perfectly. I was looking for delivery in about 8 weeks. After the 8th week and no bar I got nervous. But a simple email to John will ease your mind, just email him late at night, you'll get a response. It took 10 weeks but the bar was absolutely amazing. His shop is only 30 minutes from my home so I decided to pick it up. His shop was booming with bars being made and bars ready to ship all over the country. I was truly amazed. I met John and some of his workers and they were polite and busy. Everything I ordered was in 2 well packed large boxes, well almost. The beer tap I ordered was missed but John shipped it direct to me in just a few days. I couldn't believe the whole bar was in 2 boxes. I thought it be a mess to put together but instructions were easy to follow and everything was taped and marked like putting a very easy puzzle together. It took me about a half hour and was done and ready to go. I would certainly recommend and if I ever need another or new bar, I know Johns Bars will be where I go. Thanks so much John H.! My suggestion to any folks that have any worries, just relax. You'll get your bar and be very satisfied. These guys are working like crazy and seem to be extremely busy with orders. I've seen them in action first hand.
Where do I start with this!..... First of all I’ve had so many questions and John was able to give me a fast answer! John is did such a good job with this and our bar. Where can you find a bar online that gives you the real bar experience. You google home bars. It comes up with a bunch of pre-made ones that don’t interest me. They’re so expensive and they don’t fit your needs or liking. (if you had any) Our bar is one of the best things we’ve done to the house. The bar was simple to put together! Also during shipping nothing was damaged. Nothing! It arrived perfectly! The LED counter top is one of favorites. There’s the perfect amount of storage on shelves and space to do all things you need to do like Bartending. I really can’t thank john enough with his patience with working with me. It was so simple to do as well! Just submit your order and be patient and you’ll get it!!!! If I really thought about it... there’s nothing negative I can think of.
If your in the market for a new bar that will fit the space you need.. go with Johns bars!
By the way I didn’t mention shipping. Shipping was so fast!
Hands down John and his team did an awesome job building our bar. I wanted to get my husband a custom bar down for Father’s Day. I spoke with John on Mother’s Day and asked him if it could be done. He told me absolutely and we received it 3 days before Father’s Day. John communicated with me and answered all my questions through the process. He was patient and he assured me everything would be completed on time. John labeled everything so putting it together was easy and took an hour. The staining/finishing cage out perfect. The price wasn’t bad at all for this bar. John helped me make this a perfect Father’s Day. I most definitely recommend John and his team!!!!!!
So I just got my bar in today and I had a motorcycle ride scheduled so I asked my daughters to just open the boxes. Three hours later I got back and they had put the whole thing together! That should tell you how easy it is to install. Although the instructions looked a little non detailed, my teenagers figured it out so I feel like anybody could.
As far as how long it took to arrive. I got it in about 12 weeks instead of the promised 8, but it’s during a GLOBAL PANDEMIC and a national shutdown, so I think people are being a little harsh with their expectations. I’ve been waiting on a Kobe Bryant Jersey for two months for God’s sake.
As far as quality, the foot rest could be a little nicer, but either way I’m installing actual thick plumbing pipe to the ground. As for the wood there’s a few chips but ultimately for the price I’m extremely happy. I know people are giving these guys a hard time for not getting it faster, but then they also get mad because they’re not responding to every message. It’s a lose lose it seems. I’d recommend this company again because I did a lot of looking around and these guys are the cheapest around with good quality. If you wanna nice bar to drink with buddies at home for a good price this is it.
The glass i had cut by a local glass company. It was $150 only because the Plexiglas was white, i still utilized it for the back area as you see. I love it man. The look people give when I open that garage is pure amazement. These guys got a good product. Work with em.
We love our bar! Toby Keith would be singing about our bar if he’d ever been here! John’s work is exemplary. The quality of the construction and the ease with which it went together were both marvelous. We wanted a bar, but not just an ordinary basement bar. We wanted an actual bar and what John created is the focal point for our BAR! Our friends and family are amazed when they see it for the first time. The bar is not just beautiful from the front, but also affords storage in the back. There are shelves and cabinets for organizing glassware, supplies, and just about anything you’d need. Overall, John made our bar-dream come true. We were able to finish it exactly as we wanted and to truly make it our own.
My review of Johns custom bar that he built for me?? 5 stars hands down. If I could give it 10 stars, I would! I had about 100 questions for John before I decided to pull the trigger on the investment because I was skeptical about buying this online. He was very patient with me, and answered all my questions. For the money I invested, I cannot believe how awesome the finish product was! Everyone that comes over to watch the games rave over this bar. I highly recommend you call John and go over all your options if you are looking for a custom bar. Thanks again for the great product John!!
Got the bar delivered yesterday and installed today! We are very pleased! The color is perfect and the assembly was quite easy. I left a review and picture on your Facebook page. Let me know if there's other reviews or photos you'd like for me to send. I like the offer that you have with the gift cards. That's smart business! Thanks again for your patience with us as we work through this purchase. We're very happy!
At first I was upset that I had to set it up but it was actually really easy and only took me a little over a hour. It is a beautiful item and I’m almost done customizing it. I really bugged the hell out of John but he didn’t care and returned every message in a timely manner. I’m super in love with my bar and will definitely referred everyone to them. I’m actually thinking about getting bar stools made now lol. Pics are coming!
John was amazing to work with! I was very skeptical about purchasing something of this magnitude online without having someone come take a look at the space I was working with. John had me take pictures and measurements and assured me that the bar would fit. He was responsive to all of my questions and followed up promptly. The bar arrived in 3 boxes and was easy to assemble with the instructions given. I am a 5’1, 43 year old female and I assembled the entire bar myself, surprising my husband when he arrived home! We stained it ourselves and installed the light kit. We love it!! If you are looking for a nice quality bar, John is your guy.
Perfect perfect perfect!!! Packed well, built well, easily went together. Great instructions! I love it!
Great! Loved how fast it shipped!
I loved how easy it was put together! I did it myself and end result is what I needed for an affordable price! Thanks John!
John was great and the bar is amazing. Slight issue with the bar top, but John delayed his vacation to quickly correct it within the hour. The directions were easy to follow, everything was predrilled and labeled. I'm very happy with the purchase. Thanks John!
Exactly what I wanted and easy to assemble! My only issue was that I was given a time frame of 4-6 weeks for delivery and it didn't arrive until a day shy of 8 weeks. Customer Service was quick to get back to me when I asked a couple times about delivery. Great item!
Went together easy enough and looks great. Staining and sealing look good too. John was super responsive to all inquiries and kept me informed of what was going on during build and shipping.
Perfect center piece for my bar room. Exactly as we discussed. Delivery and assembly was quick and seamless. Couldn't be happier. Highly recommended!
Very easy to put together. Looks just like the picture once assembled.
Five stars, seller was proactive in clarifying my order and was received within expected timeline. Thank you!
We love our home bar. Super easy to put together, excellent instructions, and easy to install predrilled holes with instructions. We paid extra to have it stained and it was soo worth it.Very happy!
We absolutely love our bar. It was super east to put together and it completes my husband's man cave. We couldn't be more pleased!
We are still putting the bar together. It arrived in two boxes. Maker clearly marked areas with tape and labeled screws to help us out. It's looking great so far! Plan on sharing picture when completed with stain. Thank you! We love it!
We love it! It's perfect!
Bar was received yesterday. Great instructions, took 2 hours from start to finish. A+++++ updated. Even happier once stain and poly added
I love my new bar, I was able to assemble it with the enclosed instructions, I applied the recommend brand of stain (2 coats) and 2 coats of polyurethane. Every question that I had leading up to my purchase was answered and the customer service after the purchase was great. The product was packaged very well in multiple boxes and light enough that 2 women could carry them. I would recommend this company to anyone. Very nice addition to my entertainment area.
Bar came out great. Excellent job staining and construction was easy. Thanks again for a great addition to the home.
Great experience working with John, responsive and great customer service! I put the bar together myself, instructions were easy to follow. Would definitely buy from him again.
Bar looks great, just as shown in pictures
I am extremely pleased with the bar I purchased and working with John was a pleasure. You won't go wrong buying here.
Very easy to put together with the simple instructions! looks great in my bar room.... I don't recommend using Polyshades to stain. It did not turn out looking very nice so I am in the middle of stripping the bar top and using regular wood stain. Over all I'm looking forward to having good times with this bar
Just what we needed! This is perfect for the DIY type. We saved a ton of money by ordering a custom bar from this seller. Very professional. Quick responses. We even had the option to have it stained before it shipped to us. Love the ebony color we chose. Put together in two and half hours with two people. I was worried that the wood might not be heavy enough, thinking it would fall apart. But once it was put together it seems very sturdy. One of the pieces is a bit warped, so there is a gap on one side. But you really can't see it unless you look for it closely. Overall any imperfections are easily overlooked because of the price of the product and the time we saved by not having to cut out, and measure, and stain the pieces ourselves. I highly recommend this product and shop! Thank you!!
Easy to put together with the diagram that was given, after I put it together it looks just like the picture. I would recommend it to friends. And it was delivered in a timely manner.
We love our new bar!! John worked with us to create a custom size that would fit out space, suggested a stain that worked with our color scheme and kept us up to date on the progress. Bar was fairly easy to put together, and feels very sturdy. We've received a ton of compliments on it!
Great guy to work with
Turned out wonderful! Easy to assemble and exactly what we needed. Thank you!
Easy to put together. Instructions got confusing but the seller quickly corrected for me. I love love love it
This bar is great and John was wonderful to work with. Not difficult to assemble, all parts were there and in good shape. I added my own foot rail and painted/stained myself. Could not be happier with the end result.
Seller was great to work with, very accommodating and responsive whenever we had questions/concerns. Boxes came quickly and was very easy to put together. Looks great in our bar room. Wouldn't hesitate to order from him again.
Very well crafted, everything I expected it to be...definitely recommend buying
The bar was simple to put together and looks good.
Just finished putting it together, it only took 2 hours tops and that's with a crazy toddler interrupting us every 5 min. Seller was great and we received it very quickly. Can't wait to finish it to complete our bar themed room! Edited: to add a picture of the (almost finished product). We are loving it! And btw... We have ZERO experience staining/painting etc. We received the bar as shown on the seller's original sample pictures. Its been a fun project!
