So there is a local restaurant/bar opening up and they have a roadhouse inspired look. I am meeting Saturday with the owner to discuss possibly building all the furniture for the whole place (definitely will need help). Sounds great except I have no clue what that’s supposed to mean. We don’t have many “roadhouses” here. Maybe rough looking tables, whiskey barrel pedestals? Anyone else have an idea of what you would consider roadhouse furniture?

Maybe watch the Patrick Swayze film “Roadhouse.”

It takes place in a roadhouse.

I think the Roadhouse movie was before my time. I’ve tried sitting through it. Not my cup of tea/ pint of beer in this case. I googled roadhouse. Tons of news on Texas roadhouse lol. I think I have an idea, just waiting for the meeting. Was just wondering if anyone else had anything different. I think of a cedar bar with corrugated steel and then rough lumber seats and tables. Lots of outdoor seating for the bike rallies and poker runs.

It’s likely when the owner describes the furnishings he wants as “roadhouse” he’s not expecting to spend much money. Don’t bother breaking out any sandpaper and don’t worry about drips in the finish.

Texas Roadhouse and Logan’s Roadhouse Restaurants come to mind. I have eaten at both numerous times. Also Toby Keith’s “I Love This Bar and Grill”. Google them for ideas.

I believe you may be right, but if I’m getting signed up for this much work and time away from the family then I’m definitely getting paid. I have enough business to keep me busy right now. Don’t need to sell myself short. Plus, it’s a short deadline from what I understand. I’ll be charging an expediting fee.
