Man Caves: Creating a Masculine Retreat

Top on the wish list for many men is a place to work on hobbies, watch TV, and just hang out with friends; a personalized man cave. Whether the space is carved out of a garage, crafted from an unused spare room, or culled from the basement, the man cave is an unabashedly masculine retreat. 

This game lover's man cave was created out of an unused basement. A beautiful bar hides tons of storage for party trays and drinks, as well as a fridge, and a snack ready microwave. A sink, drinks taps, and display for the owner's team glasses collection complete the service area. 

Whether you love cars from afar or you are a real life grease monkey, this garage bar area is a winner and features lots of storage, a keg tap and a communal area for hanging out with the guys.

Man cave doesn't have to mean man/boy cave. Whether you are a James Bond or Gordon Gekko, this super sleek man cave appeals to the sophisticated player. This space features a full bar, large prep area, tons of storage and a chic, yet masculine feel.
