I saw a news piece on the growing popularity of home based garage bars in NJ. Turning your garage into a free, invitation only bar. No LIC, apparently some town guidelines.
Garage bands we are all familiar with, techies developing the virtual future, indiv. artists studios…, are garage bars the next community gathering place?
Sorry – couldn’t help it:
All of 'em had nicely stocked back bars. Prompts me to wonder, “who’s paying?”
I was wondering the same thing. It’s common in a lot of places to open up a private club so you don’t need a license. You have to become a member, which usually isn’t difficult and may involve some nominal fee. But the club charges for the drinks. This could be some kind of variation on this idea where the members all kick in for the booze. Otherwise I don’t get it.
If it were invitation only you control it but a tip jar would be placed at the door. Only noise level would ruin it.
You could bring the tunes!
Regulars could keep their own bottles in a designated place or locker?
LOL, like they used to do in the dry states.
I could see hobbists getting into casual mixology, ice cube preps and glassware collections. Shrubs, herbal mixes, etc.
The more I think on it the better it sounds.
