Why a Shipping Container Bar is Right for You

Shipping container bars are the ‘in thing’  right now. The word is spreading that the low costs paired with the freedom they bring combine beautifully with the hospitality industry. 

The freedom to create your bar in your image is the biggest draw. You can outfit your business however you like it. From tiki bars to ice bars, no matter the theme, our design team can deliver, and then some.

The possibilities are endless. No bother!


When opening a new business, you are forced to adhere to multiple factors. You might not be able to do whatever you want due to restrictions in your rental agreement, or local council rules may force you to change your plans. 

Shipping container bars have no such problems. Your space doesn’t inhibit you, because you’re in control. Need more space? Sounds like you need another container, no bother! Landlord not playing ball? Shipping container bars have no landlords and no planning permission, no bother! Council wants you to alter your vision? You can much more easily adhere to, and compromise with councils when your business can freely move to a new area that better suits you and them. No bother.

Intelligent solutions for inconvenient problems

Space Saving

The beauty of a good bar is that they don’t have to be big to be successful. Anywhere can be a bar from grand halls to garden sheds, wherever there’s space a successful bar can sprout. 

So no matter how you present your shipping container bar, be it using the container as the bar and having outdoor seating, using the container for seating, or a mix of both, you can be sure that our design team can perfectly complement the space.

Take your business with you


Opening a bar of your own can be a risky business opportunity. Many in the UK go under every year as more and more people prefer staying in over going out on a weekend, so how can you boost your custom while retaining your core business? 

Unlike an establishment in a traditional property, a shipping container bar can go where the customers are, not the other way around. From weddings and festivals, to corporate events and race meets. Wherever the punters are you can take your business. 

This freedom and ability to move your business make it an excellent opportunity to dip your toe into one of the biggest industries in the UK.
