In one of my fantasy other-lives...

...I would open a bar playing only ambient music. Maybe I still will... and this would be on permanent rotation:




Mezzanine by Massive Attack is one of the best albums eVAR. Elizabeth Fraser's ethereal sweetness is a delight of which I never could tire.

So, my ideal ambient bar would be in a converted old church, preferably with stained glass and a massive humidor. It would specialize in brandy and cigars. You may smoke a pipe or a cigar, but never a cigarette indoors, unless it is a Sobranie. (snobbery much? Why yes, make mine a double!)

My bar is called "Holy Smokes"

What's not to like? I'm searching for the perfect former church, and then: look out.

You should check out Supreme Beings of Leisure - I should think they'd be right up your alley.

There's a nice churchy looking former church with vicarage for sale here..... Ive often thought what a nifty bar it would make as I drove by

When you are ready let me know as I'm your man for a touch of neo gothic.

I would wear my fanciest shoes and frequent your bar on Tuesdays and Thursdays.

You would have loved our coffee house.

All ancient native pine paneling inside, the main hall was 120 feet by 40 feet with a 28 foot peaked ceiling and a full-height fireplace/chimney at one end, a stage at the other.

I'll have to find pictures for you.
