Chris @socktails_co has kindly invited me to post some pictures of our #homebar for the #homebarawards January contest “Show us your bar”
So over the course of January I’ll shamelessly be posting random pics of our bar
It was built in the 70s by my Dad, Uncle and I had a helping hand with my plastic hammer. It’s survived 3 house moves and also has side extensions which we didn’t have room to put up in this house. We had lots of branded optics but Mrs MixMann decided to give it overall a few months ago so those are packed away - that’s a long story! .
Some of you may know that my brother became severely disabled at the age of 1 through misdiagnosed meningitis so the padded black side panels were actually for him to avoid him hurting himself if he had a fit. He’s now the main customer and has his own seat and corner. At 6pm on the dot he will switch on the lights (not easy to find) and be waiting for his tipple, yet he has no concept of time!
So this bar has been a big part of our lives and a source of so many memories and stories!

According to my research, our brain releases dopamine - the "feel good" neurochemical involved when we experience pleasure and reward. The same chemical releases when an individual listens to music.
