Before reading this, keep in mind that as of right now I have not watched the newest Doctor Who special so no spoilers please.

Brainstormed with Katrina for what I can do for project four for one of my senior project classes. I really like the restaurant she's doing and while I'm not about to rip her off, the idea of doing something in the same vein came up. So here it is: a Doctor Who themed bar. The entrance will be a normal looking wall with the TARDIS parked up next to it--but THE TARDIS IS THE ENTRANCE OMG! IT'S BIGGER ON THE INSIDE! Right now I'm partial to the New Who TARDIS interior more than Old School but I want to reconcile the different aesthetics so they kind of mesh together in one geeky cornucopia of awesome.

The center console with navigation controls will be the main bar--it will be larger than the actual consul, obviously, and there will no green tube thing because people need to stand there. I'm thinking there will be about three sections of the console/bar, each one representing different periods of the console in Who history. The wait staff will be dressed as various companions. A friend suggested having a floor show at one point in the evening where the Doctors come out and dance/sing/play instruments.

Pretty much I want to have fun and create a wonderfully nerdy bar that can bring old and new Who fans together in love and drunken debauchery.

What I'd need to do for this project includes:
-Create a logo (and apply it to sign-age, business cards, advertising)
-Menu design
-Interior design
-Exterior design
-Uniform design
-Special glass design (if applicable
-Sign age (bathroom, exit, employees only, etc)

That's all I can think of right now. Anyway, thoughts? People who are into Old School Who, I need your suggestions the most. I'm horribly uneducated in Old Who.

Keep in mind this is a fictional bar.

it would be so awesome to have the main bar be the control console...with the green bubbling tube right in the center as a pillar. soooo cooooool

and I lOVE the idea of the unassuming blue box next to a plain brick wall...ahahah amazing amazing

you should also design the bar's signature house cocktail!

and there should be motion activated life-sized daleks in the lounge area of the bathrooms to surprise you when you open the door! ahhh, i could go on forever!

Bathrooms are going to be for bipeds and non-humanoids or something.

Also, I love the console green tube thing but then there won't be room for bartenders.

make the shelving for the bottles in a tube and have the green tube go on top.

like, have the whole tabley thing up about 10 ft higher.

Hmmm...these are all really intriguing ideas! I'll be sketching away after the next senior project class. Need to research Old Who so I can get the decor right.

imagine the table console as a 'roof' for the actual bar, and have a table encircling the console.

I'll have to come back to this with suggestions as my mind is a little overwhelmed right now, but I just wanted to say THIS IS THE GREATEST IDEA EVER. Too bad it's fictional.

Maybe your menu could offer jelly baby shots.
