Description

The concept and design

The Hemingway Field Bar is named after Ernest Hemingway, American novelist and journalist who loved to Safari in Africa and was fond of a glass or two after a hot day’s hunting or fishing. We decided to build a drinks cabinet in honour of this great character who captured so much of the essence of Africa in his writing.

It is designed in the tradition of British Army campaign furniture to be a portable, mobile bar, quick to set up on Safari for sundowners at days end or as a beautiful piece to adorn your home / lodge and impress those guests! Interior divisions provide secure storage for crystal glasses and decanters, while the fold down front is an excellent mixing tray! Solid brass corner blocks and straps protect this fine piece from knocks and bashes. The beautifully styled legs fold together when the drinks cabinet is moved. This also facilitates transport and delivery.

The construction and material.

The cabinet of this campaign field bar is constructed with beautiful dovetail joints. While being very attractive, they also add great strength to the whole piece. The front door and lid are built with panel in frame construction – ideal when using solid hardwood to prevent warping with changes in humidity.

We have a few African hardwoods that are suitable for the construction of this field bar. Zambezi teak has a beautiful colour and grain, and is very hard. African Bloodwood is lighter in weight and has a more varied colour and grain, from honey brown, to golden yellow and chocolate brown. African mahogany is a traditional timber used in campaign furniture and has a more uniform dark brown colour.

Uses

The Field Bar has been used in many environments. As a whiskey display cabinet for a selection of whiskeys from a collection. In private upmarket homes to replace a pub in the living area. In the best Safari lodges to serve guest’s drinks.

The Mini Field bar is a smaller version more suited to carrying in Safari vehicles. We can fit it with very strong leather handles and corner blocks connected with steel rivets. It comes with a canvas carry bag. It is very popular as a drinks cabinet in guests rooms.

Another very useful addition to the Field Bar is The African Touch Wash Stand, useful not only as a convenient wash stand in your bush camp, but also as an ice bucket to cool your favourite bubbly while romancing in the wilds!
