Time Required: A weekend

Inspired by the swim-up bars at Caribbean resorts, Andrew and Kevin set out to construct one of their own at their lakeside cottage property, highlighted by underwater seating, a floating pool table and a gleaming bartop made entirely out of nickels.

Project Steps

Step 1

To make the Ultimate Swim-Up Bar, we started with a platform that can be submerged into the lake. We installed a tubular frame to support a custom bar-top for mixing and serving up drinks, and added a side table to hold a barbeque and food prep station. A side rack for fishing rods and a water-friendly pool table made for great extras. Finally, the Ultimate Swim-Up Bar was topped off with our very own sign, welcoming friends and family to the Barnickel Bar and Grill.
