The Last Bastion of Masculinity – The Man Cave is a perfect post work escapade for the working male. Being able to identify what your Man Cave needs separates the men from the boys. Already have a little space to call your own? Don’t get left behind by your bros. Up your game by giving your private room a once over with these awesome recommendations.
1. A WELL STOCKED BAR
Rule number 1; no Man Cave should ever be without proper inventory of beverages. A Man Cave without a well stocked bar is an empty one, because let’s face it your buds aren’t coming over for your charming personality. Keep your fridge filled with ice cold brews and your bar ready for service. Failure to do so is a serious party foul.
2. A KICK-A** FLAT SCREEN
Unless you are still working with a wood box and a pair of rabbit ears, your Man Cave needs a new kick-a** TV Flat screen HD televisions are more affordable than ever, so find the biggest one for your Man Cave needs.
Everybody hates that guy who invites people over to watch the game, but streams the game from his phone instead. Don’t be that guy.
3. POOL TABLE AND DARTBOARDS
The holy grail of every Man Cave – a pool table or dartboard completes any room. Make sure you’ve got enough room to fit your table, and set aside some space for the dartboard. On a tight budget? No problem. Hunt down a gently used set through local classifieds like Craigslist or Gumtree.

4. SOLID SOUND SYSTEM
We don’t doubt your taste in music, but it would mean the square root of jack all if you are playing them with your iPhone speaker. Even if you’re operating on a budget, minimally opt for a 5.1 surround system with a solid bass. Your entertainment amplified.
5. A FULL SIZED RETRO ARCADE MACHINE
Win the full admiration and respect of your bros… simply by having an awesome retro arcade machine right smack in your cave. Little explanation to why this is high on our list but just imagine blasting your way through 10 levels of Metal Slug with your best bud in arms.
