Car lover? Imagine functional and 100% unique bars and furniture made from old cars. Made from salvaged and restored Exotic Cars, Muscle Cars, and Classic Cars. The possibilities are endless; it is a must-have for the ultimate Man Cave or Car Collector (We can even complete this amazing Man Cave accessory with a matching Husky Tool Chest retrofitted with two Sub Zero refrigerator drawers for your champagne or beer!)
Aside from cars and tool chests- our line also covers all other aspects of your Man Cave. No cave is complete without your Cave Paintings! Give us a list and pictures of your interests and we will work with you to bring it to life on your walls, ceilings, and floors using concrete and graffiti!
For the wine lover, the main highlight of a Man Cave should be an incredible wine cellar. Proper wine storage is a priority, you must have the right balance of humidity and temperature. As wine enthusiasts ourselves we understand this; which is why we specialize in wine cellars.
For the Cigar Lover, we can work a humidor into your wine cellar as a centerpiece or discretely disguised as a case of fine wine. If your cigar collection is as large as your wine collection a sister cellar devoted to your cigars may be in order- complete with smoke eaters, a beautiful table, a small bar to house and showcase your scotch and brandy, and top it off with a customized ice maker to fit your whiskey needs.
For a more classic Man Cave; traditional design and elegance are a must. Fireplaces, bars, TVs, mirrors, bookcases, gun cabinets, sword display, and billiard tables are essentials. Want a big screen for your bar but you don’t want to compromise that beautiful mirror? Why not have a hidden TV behind the mirror to catch up on the news with a night cap and keep that classic mirror when entertaining guests!

5 Tips to Create an Awesome Man Cave
1. Make your bar unique, eye-popping and memorable.
This tip is a Peter Salerno specialty. Don’t believe us? Take a look at this 1959 Corvette that Peter transformed into the most amazing bar in the world:
All it takes is a little creativity and a personal touch. Take something you’re passionate about and use it as the basis for your very own custom-built bar. (And if you need some assistance, Peter Salerno and his team will be glad to help you design the bar of your dreams!)
2. Make sure you have plenty of comfortable seating.
Your man cave should be a place to hang out, crash and relax. Make sure there’s plenty of space and seating for you and your buddies to lounge around without feeling cramped or uncomfortable.
You don’t have to spend a fortune on recliners and sectional sofas – just make sure that there’s at least one more seat than the amount of guests you expect (just in case someone brings a friend). Oh, and as far as your own seat? Make sure you designate a chair of your own – every master of a man cave should have his favorite place to sit!
3. Make the decor personal to you.
When you think of a prototypical man cave, a few things instantly come to mind: animal heads mounted on the wall, tacky bearskin rugs, and so on. Don’t go the conventional, “over done” route – make your man cave your very own!
A great idea is to personalize the decor in your man cave with items, art and designs that showcase who you are and what your life is all about. For example, Peter Salerno designed one of his man caves with a professional graffiti artist, who “tagged” the walls with an awesome city skyline as well as the initials and names of his family, friends and loved ones.
4. Offer more entertainment options than just TV.
At some point, guests to your man cave will want to do something other than sit around and watch TV. At this point, you need other forms of entertainment to keep them occupied. Peter Salerno and his team suggest a form of physical activity: pool table, air hockey, old-school pinball machine, etc.
Keeping your guests spread out around your man cave also ensures that everyone mingles, no one feels cramped, and there’s plenty of room for everyone to feel comfortable, relaxed and never bored.
5. Add the element of surprise.
What if a bookcase in your man cave hides a hidden door to your garage, a cigar room/humidor or the rest of your house? How about having your TV hidden behind a large mirror? Or perhaps you could have secret shelving units for your liquor, games, or other man cave “treasures”?
These are just a few ideas to take your man cave to the next level. The element of surprise will not only entertain your guests, but take the “Wow” factor of your man cave through the roof. Imagine giving your friends the man cave experience of their lives, and then springing one last secret on them – how great is that?
These are just a few ideas to make your Super Bowl man cave “super” indeed. If you want even more great ideas regarding custom man cave, wine cellar, cigar room or game room construction and design, then you’re definitely going to want to contact Peter Salerno and create your very own Man Cave Classic!
