During my research of building a bar I was fortunate to come in contact with Chris Lenahan from Excellent Bars. I viewed all his youtube videos and said to myself wow this guy really knows his stuff! So I decided to contact Chris for some assistance. Chris is the best! He reviewed my prints and put together a drawing that I was able to give to the architect. Chris promptly addressed all my problems and concerns. His extensive knowledge of the bar industry gave me a great education on construction and efficiency. He went above and beyond!! I really appreciate what you did for me Chris, keep up the good work. You sincerely are a gentleman.Best of luck to you and your family and thanks again!!

I would like to thank you for the fantastic book which covered almost 60% of my ideas and plans, the other 40% was an eye opener with great details and well researched market. I read your book straight away after downloading up to 165 pages and it has put a smile on my face for some reason
I was wondering if you would have time to provide input on the layout of the bar equipment behind the bar, I have no problem paying for your expert advice. I saw you in Las Vegas at a seminar as was very impressed with your knowledge in the industry.Andy McAnallyMac's Sports Grill
