    Classy, pretty, functional- but with a few gripes

    I was originally eye-balling the C&B steamer bar cabinet, but at more than double this price, I couldn't justify the extra cost since they look practically the same on the inside. The big difference is the front fascia and size. A good friend has the C&B cabinet; granted it is a tad larger, but I still don't think that justifies the cost. Also, the C&B cabinet has the "squares" design on the front of it, which is nice, but still does not justify the cost. Plus- the design of this cabinet's front fascia is just as classy, only in a different style. Here are my opinions and notes from start (ordering & delivery) to finish (setup & filling with items) with a few tips thrown in: ORDERING - Easy to order. From my research, there is technically only one cabinet body style, while the legs are what is different in each of the different product names. DELIVERY - Fast shipping to my house. I ordered on Saturday and received on a Wednesday. The boxes (3) were left on my door step and I did not have to sign for it. Two of the boxes were heavy! The third box contained only the feet, so it wasn't as bad. One of the other boxes was very heavy, and I had to get a neighbor to help me carry it up 1 flight of stairs. Mind you, I am typically able to carry heavy items by myself, but this box was too heavy and also awkwardly large to carry alone. The other heavy box was just a tad bit lighter and smaller enough for me to carry by myself. UNPACKING - There were lots of pieces, from structure to trim and also hardware. You will only need a Phillips head screwdriver and the supplied Allen wrench for installation (and maybe a drill, but that will be addressed in the Installation section). All of the pieces were there, but there were no extra hardware, so work carefully to not lose or break anything. Also, most of the pieces were carefully and correctly labeled, but some of the pieces were not labeled at all. However, it was fairly simple to tell which ones were being addressed from the diagrams. TIP: Make sure you find screwdriver bits/heads that fit the screws and cam nuts correctly; otherwise, you might frustrate yourself with stripped bits, screws, cam nuts, and cam bolts. ANOTHER TIP: This thing is heavy before assembly, and is heavier after assembly. It might seem obvious, but make sure you perform he installation close to the location where you plan on keeping it. Otherwise, the move to the final location afterwards might be a pain. INSTALLATION - Took me about 4 – 4.5 hours by myself, including unpacking, sorting and organizing the pieces, and cleaning up the packaging material (which was a lot). I have put together various dressers, tables, TV stands, and other furniture from the likes of Ikea, Target, Amazon, etc., so I knew what I was getting into. This was really no different than any of that. The installation was pretty straightforward, and the guide had a diagram. If I had to rate it, it would be an easiness level of 7, with 10 being easiest. The only issue I had was that one of the pieces of the cabinet did not have predrilled holes on one side. I had to drill three holes on my own to fit the cam bolts. This was my only gripe with the installation. TIP: When screwing in the cam bolts, don’t over-tighten them too deep. If you do, then when you try to fit the adjacent piece with the actual cam nut, the nut won’t turn properly and you can easily break/strip it with too much pressure. If it doesn’t seem like it fits or is turning, do not force. Take a step back and reassess. ANOTHER TIP: The installation guide instructs you to basically put together all of the secondary pieces on to the main (structural) pieces first and screw in all cam bolts and screws beforehand. This is fine, but towards the end, when I got to fitting the top piece with the wineglass-rack pieces (Parts B & C, I think) on, I was not able to tighten the pieces together because the wineglass-rack pieces were in the way. So basically, I recommend not screwing in parts Bs & Cs into the cabinet top, until after you put the top onto the cabinet body (which I closer to the end) and secure the cam bolts with the nuts. ONE MORE INTSTALLATION TIP: When assembling the door parts, make sure you pay close attention to the alignment and position of the front of the door onto the door frame. Since the holes for the handle are pre-drilled, there is only one direction that the front of the door should go on the door frame. If you miss that detail (like I did), you’ll just have to unscrew the cam nuts and flip the door front around. Not a show-stopper, but one of the oh-darn-I’m-so-close moments). SETUP AND FILLING WITH ITEMS – This wine cabinet has a lot of usable space. The only gripe is that the wineglass-racks were not able to fit glasses with larger bases. Also, one of the door had a weak magnet and does not stay shut. However, we keep the cabinet open so it’s not an issue. OVERALL, this is a nice piece that will definitely add class and style to your room. It does not look cheap and definitely does not feel cheap. It is heavy and solid. I would give it a 5/5 stars, but the fact that I had to drill a few of my own holes was a bummer.

    Beautiful Bar - Poorly Delivered

    This bar is absolutely gorgeous and for the price, it is definitely the best bang for your buck. However, I was very disappointed in the delivery of this product. For starters, three large boxes arrived and several pieces were chipped and dented. What's more, the instructions did not come in the box!! The assembly is extremely difficult and I had to pay a handyman to put it together (after waiting on the instructions to arrive by email). But after covering up some of the dings with a black sharpie, the bar does look great. Just allow yourself some time and patience prior to the bar's arrival.

    Everything the AD says

    Bought for my husband for Christmas. I was worried about spending so much money for a piece of furniture that I had not seen in person. I had nothing to worry about. It's beautiful, strong and functional. The only reason I didn't give it a 5 stars is because it would be PERFECT if the "wings" to expand the top stayed open while the cabinet was closed. But it's a MINOR issue. My husband and his friends loved it..

    You get what you pay for ....

    I paid extra for express shipping, only recieved one box on time, the rest came the next day. Having said that, they did reimburse me the shipping charges. One of the wine glass holders was torn apart. When the doors are completely stocked they become very heavy causing two issues, first, the magnetic connection becomes too stressed to keep it closed and second, the stress on the hinges causes sagging of the doors. It is definitely cheaper than most other cabinets, just know that you get what you pay for.

    Good, but can be great easily

    This product is everything we were looking for to fit in the area we had. We are very pleased! It would be even better if it came with or had an option to purchase a quality pad to go on top for extra protection when hosting; we had to purchase separately. Also, as stated by another reviewer who I thought was a cook (I've been proven wrong), the wine glass holders do not hold any of our standard wine glass bases. The holders a little to narrow, and we have Reidel glasses. However, I'm not sure anything would be able to fit under them if they were hanging, but it'd still be nice to hand the glasses instead of having them on the surface. In all, we are very pleased with how it looks and how functional it was when hosting with it for the first time. Great surface area and doesn't take up much space even when it is folded out. Would recommend to someone else, but warn them of issues beforehand. **Special Note** Another review said the magnet is bad, but you do not want too strong of a hold on the doors, for when you open them you don't want to have to rip it open with glasses and/or bottles in the door. A family member has a very expensive one with "good" magnets and it felt like you were breaking everything in the door when you opened it. Love the magnet!

    Nice Bar

    I purchased this bar to add to my entertainment room and it was the perfect piece to finish off the room. It matched the wood color of the pub set and billard table so I was extremely happy with that. It took 2 people to assemble and it took hours but it was well worth it in the end. The bar is simply elegant!

    Just what we wanted!

    Very nice, high quality cabinet. Lots of storage, large when you open it for parties and small well scaled cabinet when closed. A very nice addition to our home.

    great quality

    We are very satisfied with our new bar cabinet. It is everything we wanted. The price is right for the quality of this product.

    Some assembly required

    They should have advertised massive assembly required. Other than that we're very happy with it.

    huge storage

    Holds lots and lots, but magnets on the door weak.
