Cave 1: Underground Pub

This cave features exposed brick, a fully stocked kitchen and large bar with wire insert cabinetry and brick walls. The cozy seating area includes a modern fire feature below the large TV, perfect for watching the big game. This basement also featured fully equipped gym.

Cave 2: Stylish Entertainment

Talk about entertainment! This cave features a home gym, infrared sauna, golf simulator and a plethora of other games and electronics to keep boys busy for days!

Just when you think it’s all fun and games, you’ll find a custom gentlemen’s closet complete with a colorful tie collection, lighted cabinets to highlight suits and jackets, and cedar lines cubbies for sweaters.

Cave 3: Barn Hangout

This custom built barn has enough to keep you entertained for a night, or even a weekend! The sitting area features a natural burning fireplace and large leather couches with additional bar seating behind each couch. The barn also features a full kitchen and plenty of entertainment with a shufflebaord table and billiards table. Two large glass garage doors lead out to a patio, perfect for smoking meats and cigars.

Cave 4: Dinner and a Show

To create the perfect man cave, one must be able to eat, drink and watch all in one space. Mission accomplished. This space features a wrap-around bar with plush leather bar stools, a large sectional couch to stretch out, and 3 screens to watch the big game from every angle. The large projection screen, surround sound and soft up lighting make an ideal viewing experience. 

Cave 5: BBN Approved

For all of those die-hard  UK fans out there, here’s some inspiration that will really “blue” you away! This space was made for Cats fans, who can enjoy the game from the comfortable stools at the fully stocked bar or the leather sectional in the seating area. The wine refrigerator and bar area both feature custom blue lighting to support of the Cats.

Cave 6: Rustic Hideaway

This man cave featuring dark and earthy tones and wood accents is  perfect for the outdoorsy man. The seating area is complete with modern accent chairs that pair well with the home owner’s antique pieces and taxidermy collection. The exposed brick gives the room a rustic aesthetic, while the rug makes the atmosphere feel warm. This cave is the perfect spot to pour a glass of bourbon.

Cave 7: Minimalistic Retreat

This contemporary space looks simple, but offers all of the man cave essentials. Unlike other underground caves, this space offers plenty of natural light. Featuring a pool table, card table and gym, there are endless entertainment options. The kitchen and bar area make the perfect spot to watch the big game!
