Construct the Bar With Simple Supplies
Using 2 by 4 pieces of wood and plywood, to construct a wooden façade with a front and 2 sides. Next, cover that front with a top that goes across the front and each of the sides. Next, cut the bamboo poles to fit, placing the around the front and both sides on the top of the bar and also along the bottom on the sides and the front facing the area of the bar designed for guest seating. Then, cover the front and sides again, but this time with bamboo reeds. Finally, run a bamboo pole which will be used as a footrest along the bottom.
Build A Canopy Sprinkled In Decor
Take four of the thick bamboo poles and place in the ground feet away from each corner. Then, using heavy rope that is coarse attach cross member bamboo poles, securing them with screws if need before covering them with the coarse rope. Finally, tightly stretch fish netting across the poles for an authentic vibe. Decorating the netting with décor such as sea shells and starfish is a fun touch. Add multiple leis as decoration and for guests to wear later
Attach Roof Coverage
Salvage tree fronds fallen from palms if you can locate any for substantially less than the cost of thatching to use as roof coverage. Palm fronds add a touch of authenticity as well as providing a romantic atmosphere.
Light It Up
String outdoor lights along the sides and front of the roof, window down each side of the poles from the canopy. Insert citronella scented Tiki torches a safe distance from the bar. These torches will provide extra lighting while and keep bugs away, too. Strategically place covered, scented around the bar to showcase the string lights.
Complete The Theme
Wicker patio furniture provides themed seating away from the bar. Wicker chairs can be placed around the outer bar area and wicker bar stools around the bar itself. Add a warm glow to guest tables with lit votive candles in a tropical scent. Add the final touch to the bar with potted palm trees or potted bamboo at each bar corner.
