HERE’S A SHIPPING CONTAINER BAR WE PREPARED EARLIER
The Hunter and the Hare Bar used to be a humble shipping container. A touch of genius, a dash of insulation and a little bit of modification saw it converted into a very nifty, incredibly secure completely transportable bar with kitchen sink, bench, servery window, fold down deck, hoseable floor and a waste outlet. There are heaps more ways you could accessorise, including hydraulic decks, remote controlled awnings and more.
Take a look at our range of other special conversion projects here, and you’ll get a great idea of the exciting an innovative things you can do to create your perfect shipping container bar.
SHIPPING CONTAINERS SYDNEY – BARS
Converting steel shipping containers into bars has rapidly become a fast and exciting means for entrepreneurs to launch great new businesses without the need for massive investment. This fast-growing trend is sweeping the world’s cities like wildfire with Sydney very much in the vanguard. Here at Shipping Containers Sydney we are experts in the field of container modifications, creating not only bars but cafés, diners, shops and many other commercial enterprises.
Pop-up bars are all the rage and the portable nature of our robust shipping containers make them ideal for this purpose. Imagine the potential for operating one at a big surf contest over at Manly or Bondi. You’d soon have queues of thirsty spectators forming as you pour out those chilled schooners!
CUSTOMISATION LIMITED ONLY BY YOUR IMAGINATION
Shipping Containers Sydney’s standard and insulated steel containers come in 20 or 40-foot lengths, but if your plans demand more space we can easily add extra units in the configuration of your choice. We’ve even seen container bars with stairs leading to rooftop beer gardens! We recommend you opt for an insulated model, which helps the unit to maintain an even temperature and combats condensation.
Your new bar will be a far cry from a utilitarian grey box with a serving hatch – we can paint both the interior and exterior in vibrant colours for you, and there’s always the option of PVC or timber cladding to soften those hard industrial edges. It all depends on your location and the look you’re trying to achieve. We can also add signage, surround the container with decking for tables and chairs and install ramps. Naturally, we are happy to install all the power you need to run your refrigeration, lighting rig and that all-important sound-system, using either portable generators or an available mains supply.
YOUR BAR WILL BE THE LIVELY HUB OF ANY EVENT
Sydneysiders are legendary for their celebration of the outdoor lifestyle and what Australian occasion is complete without a bar? Planning permission is often not required for us to deliver and install one at an event of your choice, although you should always check with the local authority before committing. If you purchase a shipping container bar, think of the earning potential during summer alone – pop festivals, outdoor concerts, sports events, regattas, festivals and markets are all potential big earners for smart bar owners.
MAKE YOUR SHIPPING CONTAINER BAR THE ULTIMATE ADVERTISING BANNER
You may have an unrelated business in the city but see a pop-up bar as the perfect marketing tool, perhaps giving away free drinks, snacks and promotional t-shirts to eager festival goers. You could install large banners, flags and parasols emblazoned with your company logo. With music blasting out and a promotional team, you can’t fail to attract curios passers-by and potential new customers.
At the end of the day you simply pack everything up, unhook the power, load your shipping container bar onto a truck and head back to base or the next destination. Of course Shipping Containers Sydney can be on hand to help deal with the logistics if necessary. Alternatively, we can design and build your container with steel shutters and doors, so that it will remain safe and secure overnight.
OUTSTANDING BUILD QUALITY GUARANTEED
With correct maintenance and a regular repainting schedule, our shipping containers will last for years. Designed to handle all that the world’s oceans can throw at them and still come back for more, Sydney’s occasional inclement weather won’t be a problem. Corrugated Corten steel (also known as weathering steel) is the shipping industry standard and was originally developed to eliminate the need for painting, by forming a stable rust-like appearance after a long period of exposure to the elements while at sea. If you add lock boxes and steel shutters, you have a container that is pretty much impregnable to the casual burglar.
