Today, Merriam-Webster’s Collegiate Dictionary officially recognizes ‘man cave’ as a 21st Century word.

Webster defines a man cave as “a room or space (as in a basement) designed according to the taste of the man of the house to be used as his personal area for hobbies and leisure activities.”

Check out some of our favorite dude-tastic man caves.

This man cave is ready to entertain with a home theater and pool table just a few steps from the wine cellar and bar.

Get ideas for designing the perfect weekend escape; whether it’s a media room for watching football games or a lavish home theater for enjoying favorite flicks.

Whatever his interests, after today, the English language gives new validation to guys who’ve been wanting to convert that extra room or basement into a man cave.

      Be happy to be alive, healthy and that you have a place to lay your head! The grass isn't always greener on the other side of the fence. Spend more time doing and not dreaming and you may achieve your goal. Your attitude determines your altitude!!

    That is a great man cave. My husband just turned our garage into a man cave. It has been so hot this summer and the air conditioner in the garage doesn't really work all that well so he hasn't been spending a lot of time in there. I just bought him a mobile air conditioner as a surprise. Now hopefully he will spend more time in there so I can get my living room back!
