Inexpensive but nice countertop for basement?

I am putting a 2'6" x 6'6" peninsula in my finished basement as a way to divide the space (between family/TV room and playroom) and to provide a place that's not the couch to have snacks, etc... It can also double as a "bar" for the adults as it will have a good view of the TV for Sunday football. I thought about trying to find a granite remnant but from what I've seen they're still way too expensive. I'd like something around $8-10 a square foot. Any suggestions?

Get a old solid wood door, and put some legs on it, or if wanting a actual bar, make it so that you can roll it out of the way, when not in use. It really depends on what you want it to do. For a table, a old door works. For a bar, may be cheaper to build a nice one that fits in, with the ability to roll away, or push up against the wall when not in use.
