Saloon Decor for the Man Cave or Home Bar

Use a Wild West Saloon Theme in Decorating

Entertain in style with an old-west saloon in your home. You’ll feel just like Clint Eastwood or Wyatt Earp as you lean your elbow on the vintage looking bar while sipping your drink.

This makes the perfect theme for a man cave, a home bar or for a poker room. It’s great for the rec room or a finished basement.

What should you put in your saloon themed room? Get lots of ideas below for wall decor, lighting, poker tables and more. I’ve included some videos showing vintage saloons too.

Elk 18 Antler Chandelier – for a Real Western Look

Rustic Elk 18 Antler ChandelierLearn More

You just don’t see something like this except out west. Even if you live on the east coast, this transports you to the Wild, Wild West as soon as you see it.

Add it to your room for that rustic elegance that will make your room special. Elk shed their antlers each year, so no animals were injured to make this lighting piece.

Actually this one is reproduction antlers, but it sure looks realistic to me.

I find these elk antler chandeliers amazing. They really bring in that old west look or the rustic lodge feel.

 

My Dad Would Have Loved a Saloon in His House

What a great way to entertain your buddies without having to go out in all weather to a bar. With a room decorated in old west saloon style, everyone will want to hang out at your house.

Who wouldn’t want to belly up to the bar and swig down a cool beer on a hot day with a stunning look like this.

You might want to have your pals bring a carton of beer over now and then so it’s not dipping into your budget all the time.

Here’s a photo of my dad visiting a western style saloon. Photo taken by my sister

Saloon-Sized Glass Beer Mugs

Remember the scene in the old western movies when the bartender slid a full glass of beer down the bar to some gunslinger or to a thirsty cowpoke?

When you decorate with a saloon theme, you need to remember even the small details. Here’s exactly the right glasses for you to serve beer in.

I like them for my root beer floats too.

Marble Top Bar That Won’t Overwhelm a Room

Coaster Marble Top Bar inLearn More

For an average poker room or family room, this is a good size. It leaves space for other activities in the room. If you have a really big space, like a whole basement, you might want something larger.

You could put a pair of these together if you want a longer bar for a bigger impact. Think about the number of people you want to “belly up to the bar” at any given time.

This has a classy look and the detailing like you would see in the early days.

Buffalo Head for the Wall – of your saloon or poker room

Sometimes this one goes out of stock on Amazon. Click on the picture to see similar buffalo wall sculptures.

You could also opt for a deer head or an elk.

You can also check eBay for these too. Unusual stuff shows up on eBay, so you might find the real deal here… a vintage buffalo head or taxidermy mount. Good luck on your bidding.

I can’t get over how realistic this looks. It is cast from resin and hand-painted.

Decorate the Walls with Wanted Posters

I also found an online site where you can put your photo and wording on a wanted poster form. You can save the resulting photo to your computer. I’m not sure how large you could print it to get the effect of an old west wanted poster for your wall.
