The design of the drinking room of the pub reminded me less of a tavern than of a personal lounge, like you'd have at home, with chairs against all the walls, no tables, etc. But the best part were the walls: all four walls of the drinking room had 2 or 3 levels of shelves, loaded with 70cl bottles of Scotch whisky. They said that the pub had 650+ bottles, though I don't know if all of them were on the walls.

Now we got bottles of gin, vodka, rum, tequila and a host of mixing soda and weird mixes like cranberry juice, apple, green nectar, etc. for her cocktails. Their is also a measuring cup complete with a computerized recipe on one end with a small lcd display of ingredients. Not to mention that on one side of the kitchen is her collection of wine bottles which she expects me to keep full.

And how much have you invested in the liquor? Isn't a $400 cabinet a small investment in its safe-keeping/display/provenance?

I've pretended to not hear the comments thus far, but the time is coming when I have to do something. I'm thinking of setting up a bar when I move in a few weeks time in another room. Should be an interesting experience in any case.
