My air return vent is underneath a little bar area that I created in our bonus room. I want to put some fabric underneath the bar to make that area look a little nicer. The fabric would be long on the left front of the bar and shorter over the small black refrigerator on the right underneath the bar. The area is 4' wide x 24" deep. Would this greatly hinder the air return vent if I "skirt" underneath the bar?

Any fabric will hinder the air flow but it's better than building a solid door in front of it. I wouldn't worry about it too much. Worse case scenario, you pull the fabric to the side a little.

I agree with danielleb. you should be ok.
You could also leave a 2 or 3 inch gap between the cloth and the floor which would also help with the airflow.
Thanks
