If you've ever seen a bar floor at the end of the night it's amazing the rubbish that's been deposited, as are the things you see.... Shocked

Having worked in a Bar as a doorman, I can see your point. In Canada with the no smoking in place for years now, with a polished concrete floor, and the type of Bar VooDoo is, the floor is not as messy as a more common Bar's floors might be. I'll give your critique some thought and maybe 'age' the floors a little, though VooDoo has been recently renovated, so is still pretty pristine.

Not so much the Bar top, which I managed to spill some resin on and now needs to be replaced as it was just paper. I made some drinks with the resin and it hadn't cured despite being over 24 hours. (Sigh)

Where I'm from, it's not the bar floor that is messy.

It's the men's room, where drunks had a problem with their "aim."

I've had to stand in odd positions to keep my feet out of the "puddle"
around the toilet. affraid

I like the raised appearance of the posters on the wall, as though they are set out from the bricks by an inch. That “floating” look is very contemporary and modern, fitting with the style of the Voodoo Lounge.

Oh I too had a setback with resin drinks. 
I attempted to fill some previously clear 1/6 plastic glasses with a little coloured resin to simulate drink only to have it react very badly with the glasses and turn into a total disaster!

Mine turned out looking really good, just don't seem to be curing as fast as I expected. Seemed simple enough, mix 1-1 add a little dye and Bob's your Uncle, draft beer. Some resins do create heat to cure and can simple melt plastics. This one was supposed to be a cold cure type, but not sure it was worth doing. They do look good though.

Yours look a damned sight better than mine did!
The resin first turned my glasses completely opaque then tended to melt them altogether.
Unqualified disaster!

I see what you did, there! You filled some of the glasses at an angle, so they look right when held at a "drinking" position! Excellent eye for detail!

I suspect you used the type of Resin that creates a lot of heat as it cures. Fatal on plastics. I did a quick test and went for it, mixing one glassful at a time. I'm not sure I'd bother with it again. Actually binned the remaining resin and dyes.

Yeah Dave, and it was one of those that slipped and fell over causing the Bar damage. Though CCTV footage shows my doorman, Colm moved the bus pan of ice and beer it was leaning on....

That's my GF's 'mini me' she's studying her MD, going to be a psychiatrist. I did up the figure for her so she can take it with her when she starts residency. ;-)
