Inspiration Point: Salvaged Treasure at The Playwright Irish Pub

I promised we'd head back to The Playwright Irish Pub with a better camera. This is evidently the 5th pub opened by three Irish brothers, and it boasts authentic salvage from derelict churches as well as some new structures, like the mahogany bar, that were handmade in Ireland and shipped here to South Florida. I started asking the bartender questions after spotting this mortise and
tenon joint beam.
 
I gave Thom the camera, so he's our photographer today.

This I suspect is reproduction, but I'd love to have it as a headboard, wouldn't you?

How to hide your powder rooms.

The stage is very impressive, crowned with an antique pipe organ.

LOVE the ceiling medallion!
How's this for a DJ booth? The hostess stand was similar.
Oh, the places I could use a piece like this...

...and then back into the beautiful tropical sun to head home to my garden! If you're ever vacationing down here, do NOT miss this place. It's like a stroll through a museum, cold ale in hand.

You're so taking us there when we come down in June!!! It looks like it should be home to The Boondock Saints!

Oh btw, Ms Inspiration..... *smirks* Yesterday I was inspired by you and brought home Root Tone... I actually tried my hand at rooting my narrow leaf Japanese Maple as well as my fuscia Crabapple.

I'll let you know in a couple weeks how they are :-) By then your jaw should have stopped dropping LOL

Thanks, Sunny :-)
