Best Celebrity Game Room Ideas

 Over the years, “man cave” is what most people called a spare room in their home. Nowadays, man caves are hugely popular  and are accessorized with comfy couches, giant TVs, sports memorabilia, dart boards, and maybe even a bar. With gas possibly hitting $5 a gallon this summer and the cost of living going through the roof, having a man cave provides the go-to spot for the big game, or simply as a place to relax with all the amenities of a sports pub, without the sports-pub crowd.  Here are some of the best Celebrity man caves to help inspire your dream game room.

When it comes to man caves, Blue Collar Comedy star Dan Whitney, aka “Larry the Cable Guy,” is the master. In building his custom, 3-building compound, he made sure there was a space dedicated to all the stereotypical enjoyments a guy could possibly want in one place. His manly oasis (pictured above) includes a poker table, pool table, bar, flat-screen TV, video machine, bar signs, and turf-like carpet as the finishing touch.

Channeling the atmosphere of a classic sports bar, this man cave has tall bar tables and chairs, a pool table, dark hardwood floors, and — in a nod to the massive scoreboards found in many sports arenas — there is a drop-down bank of four TVs mounted from the ceiling, which offers a 360-degree view of the game (pictured above).  Home to a current NBA superstar and featured on MTV’s Cribs, this home has 7 bedrooms, 10 bathrooms, 2 theater rooms, arcade/dance club, bowling alley, pool, fitness room, library, elevator, 6-car garage, and a 55-ft tall atrium.

Noted as “one of the most significant hunting and equestrian estates,” While not currently owned by a Celebrity, Tudor Farms consists of 6,250 acres and an 11-bedroom, 10.5-bathroom lodge-style home.  This game room could require even the ultimate huntsman to take a break from the outdoors and, luckily, Tudor Farms’ residents don’t have to go far. Among the 14,000 sq ft of living space is a cabin-like man cave with log columns, corner-mounted TV, pool table and bar (pictured above).

Hollywood superstar Nicholas Cage is another of the glitterati who likes to close the doors and lock himself away in his games room. His illustrious house out in Beverley Hills boasts an expensive pool table, and it sort of carries on a tradition because Cage’s house used to be owned by crooner Dean Martin who also had a good eye for the game. Pool, it bridges generations and class alike.

The Orson Welles Luxury View Estate was originally owned by one of Hollywood's golden boys, Orson Welles. Sitting just atop Sunset Blvd, this 3,000 sq ft. luxury 4 bedroom estate features a luxury pool with jacuzzi and a dry sauna, overlooking the stunning views of Hollywood and beyond below. This estate, originally built in 1928, and recently remodeled in several different sections, sits on top of its own roughly 15,000 square foot private knoll.

“We never in our lives would have intended to own a (vacation) house this big, but it was such a deal,” Clark Howard said on recent Sunday in the north Georgia home.  The nationally syndicated radio host known for helping consumers “save more, spend less and avoid rip-offs” has had extensive work done on the house, which is 65 miles from the Howards' Atlanta home.  The fully finished basement features a pool table, keeping with the comfortable and kid-friendly setting that the Howard home provides.

NBA superstar Amar’e Stoudamire's custom home in Florida is the ultimate "man cave".  The home has the kind of smart taste fit for a fashionable 28-year old: Expansive foyer entry, private office, a movie theater, game room with wet bar, plus an additional wet bar. Best of all, in addition to the sumptuous indoor kitchen, there’s a second kitchen to make poolside munching happen in a snap.  There are marble floors throughout, custom coffered ceilings and built-ins, and a huge vacation retreat-style outdoor pool with connecting hot tub that’s surrounded by palm trees, a huge pool deck, and covered outdoor eating space.

Just from experience as a pool ensuthiast myself I would not recommend buying him a pool stick. The reason is everyone has their own preference on what stick they like and use. You can buy some good sticks under $ 100, but I don’t recommending buying him a stick just because it has cool designs (this will have to be something he picks out). I would recommend buying a: -Wall pool stick holder. -Set of balls that has the logo of his favorite team. -Nice pool case that he can take back if he doesn’t like it. Recommended 2 shaft 2-4 butts. -Pool gloves, pool clock, a ticket to see a pro-pool tournament. There are some that don’t cost much at all. -Trick Shot DVD’s Whatever you do don’t buy him the cheapest pool stick and pool case that comes together in a package. It might be cheap and look like your getting a good deal, but it is cheap, and he most likely want even ever use have the stuff that is included.
