Decorating with Neon Bar Signs
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!
