We have worked with the Drafthouse several times over the years, and each project is a new challenge.  When the Drafthouse approached us to work on their new Mueller location, we leapt at the opportunity, and the results have been fantastic.  The Barrel O’ Fun is the entrance to the Mueller location’s cocktail lounge, and at night, becomes a performance venue.  The lights on the top of the barrel can be modified to say “Bar O’ Fun” adding to the playful Night Circus theme the Drafthouse was going for with this location.  Additional elements include a reproduction lamp of the spaceship from ‘Close Encounters of the Third Kind’, and a fully outfitted bar interior, complete with Teacup booths, wacky mirrors, and handpainted Sideshow Posters.
