It all started from listening to The KLF's "Last Train to Trancentral" in the year 1991 soon to be followed by "Rhythm is a Dancer" by Snap!. These two master pieces of techno music hit me hard like a hammer and very soon it was about a time to get hold of my first ghetto blaster. It was a cheap Korean Daewoo, which had a serious built-in subwoofer to play the pounding beats of the 90's.
Towards the end of the 90's I found myself behind our student organization's bar desk playing music with a real DJ mixer, chatting with joyful people who wanted me to play their favorite disco beats and fill the dance floor. I wanted to have good time with my friends and entertain them. I almost wanted to become a real DJ.
It never happened. It was more a hobby to me. However, the joy I get from playing music, chatting with friends over a bar desk and serving drinks never disappeared. Instead, my desire to occasionally do it only got stronger over time. At the same time I had lost track of the latest dance floor fillers. I couldn't use the DJ mixer anymore except fading songs. I didn't have any spare time. No bars would hire me to throw a DJ gig. I had no choice.
I had to build A Bar.
What is A Bar?
It's a place to meet and hang out with good friends. Stemming from the 90's, but futuristic at the same time. It's a place where all important decisions and future plans are made. It's a place where all victories and achievements of life are duly celebrated. It's a place to relax, enjoy a good pint, glass of wine or drink, and listen to good beats. It's a place to play pool, darts or poker, and watch sports. But primarily and foremost to meet old and new friends.
It may or may not be open. You never know.
