I like how they did the bar at a different level with upper cabinets on the floor.
Love the open shelf below the closed cabinets. Best of both worlds. From Claire & Jeffrey's Kitchen: The Big Reveal

I love how they mounted a lower shelf to have a table-height bar, and then used a mish-mosh of vintage chairs.
