A freight container can be effectively converted into a mobile bar for festivals, exhibitions and events. Conversions like these have been used for years to serve food and drinks up and down the country, some even touring Europe.
The original steel outer structure offers security and rigidity whilst still being adaptable. Usually one or both sides have openings cut into them as serving hatches. Fixed or hinged canopies can also be fitted to keep customers out of the weather. Exterior roller shutters, signage, lighting and vinyl decals can transform the visual effect with some clients opting to make use of the roof area too.
Inside there are many options to choose from. Some clients prefer to have a very basic spec with just bar tops and lighting whilst others have drinks pumps, dispensers, refrigerators, air conditioning and non-slip flooring. With longer units such as a 40ft container there is always the option to have a separate partitioned area with its own door to be used as a store room or perhaps a lounge area.
Another benefit of using a cargo container as a mobile bar is that it can be easily transported from site to site. Crane mounted self unloading trailers can lift the unit off at site and redeliver back to a depot for storage ready for the next event.
