Raising the bar

One wonders as to the height of your average Canadian barman, with the height of the bar feature at the new Shoeless Joe’s Sports Grill in Ontario. Perhaps they’re all semi-professional basketball players; they’ll need to be if they’re going to be able to reach the Canadian Club on the top shelf. And the bar’s as high profile as a Harlem Globetrotter too. Part of Aristech’s Studio Collection, the alluringly-named Tempest 8710, a polyester resin material, was specified not just for its translucence but the fact it is heat, stain, mould and pollutant resistant. Looks like, even backlit, it can take a slam dunk too.
