Find a Neon Sign for Your Bar Area

If you want to give your home bar area a touch of class, look into neon bar signs. They aren't as expensive as you might think.

When I was younger, you used to see blinking neon signs on every bar. They had a lot of character and cast odd lighting effects onto the sidewalk outside the bar. When decorating your home bar or man cave, use neon to add a unique look that a plain, flat sign just can't duplicate.

There are new ones and vintage ones to choose from. Tracking these signs down can be a pain, so I've rounded up from a variety of sources a sampling of neon bar signs for your viewing pleasure. Enjoy!

You have to think about which one is "really you." If you have a wife, you might need to take her reaction into consideration. Hopefully the decor in your special bar area, poker room or man cave can suit your taste specifically.

If the whole point is to impress your poker buddies, then go all out.

LED gives much of the appearance of neon.

These usually plug into the wall and can be turned on and off with a chain or cord. The LED lights can flash and give the effect of motion. You can hang them in a window or on the wall.

These are usually quite affordable, compared to handcrafted neon created with heated glass tubing bent into designs.

      Neon signs sure can be fun. Those vintage ones are getting to be worth a few dollars these days too.
