Bars from Shipping Containers
Another ingenious use for used shipping containers is a bar. Commercial space can be very expensive and when it comes to bars, there is also the issue of trying to get the licensing needed in the area that you are operating in. A recycled shipping container offers all that is needed to create a small bar with several stools that can be placed on the outside of it for customers.
Different sizes and shapes
Shipping containers come in many different sizes, so all you need to do is decide which size works best for what you want and need. These container bars do not require a complete and proper foundation so you just need to worry about having it placed where you will be doing business. You will need to have electrical and plumbing connected to the bar.
The bar constructed in a shipping container is a standalone unit that can either be your property or as a business in a location within a city. A beach would also be another great location. The standalone bar is ready to be used once it is delivered if you can find a company that will complete the build for you. Once the bar is built and delivered, you simply open it up and get started. If you needed an excuse to party at any time of the day or night, you will not have to worry about that anymore with your shipping container bar. This unit is sure to get the party started when you step inside and turn on the lights.
Shipping Container Bar Configurations
There are many great configurations for these standalone bars. The most common one is to use the end of the shipping container as an entrance and then cut a large hole in the side of the container. The hole can be closed off with the piece that was cut out by making it into a piece that rolls into place and locks. The exterior of the bar is the area where stools are placed, and these can be simple or very customized. You simply need to decide on what your design elements will be. The best part of these shipping container bars is that they are extremely affordable so if you have always dreamed of having your own bar, this is your opportunity.
As a private bar, you can transform your backyard into a cool watering hole that people will come from far and wide to visit. The bar top can be crafted from any number of materials, but the butcher block style is one of the most sought after. The main bar area can be opened with hydraulic arms that lift the metal opening. Some companies offer these pre-fabbed while some people prefer to craft their own ideas into the building. One important consideration is to have the openings cut out before the unit is delivered. Not everyone has a torch that they can use to remove these large metal pieces, so having the unit customized by the company you purchase from is definitely a good idea.
Place them anywhere
The great thing about these shipping container bars is that they can be placed anywhere. Want a bar by your pool? At your cabin in the bush? At the lake? No problem, these highly portable units can be easily placed in any location you prefer. You just need the hook ups for the electrical and plumbing and once that is completed, you are good to go. Bars have always been popular but bringing them out of the dark basement is something that people have been wanting to do for a very long time. The finishing touch on the outside of the bar is a name and some lights. If you have not seen one of these shipping container bars, they really are a site to behold. The unit itself contains all the storage and workspace that you will need to create and share your favourite drinks with friends and family.
Some people even set these bars up as a business that can be placed in locations that people will frequent them in busy locations. Near busy beaches, at shopping centers, and in temporary locations such as sporting events or concerts. The possibilities are endless and are only limited by your imagination.
