It's been said that the Hearth is the heart of a home - I like to think that ones bar is the heart of the home. I cast a strong vote in favor of cocktail-culture! In fact, one day I hope to live in a home with a dedicated bourbon room, and when the ladies come to lunch, we'll reconvene in said bourbon room for a game of stakes are high bingo, post lunch on the terrace. I say this in good humor of course - as always - however, I do love the idea of a well stocked and fashionably clad bar. It's how our grandparents welcomed guests into there homes, it's just plain classy. And, isn't everything always better when it's dripping with class?
