Portable Bars

With over 20 years based in the Events Industry, we are at the forefront of providing Portable Bars and Shipping Containers Bars to the Events and Hospitality Industry.  Our Answer to the Container Bar, except much more polished and functional.

All of our Custom Portable Bars come with full Reg126 Certification that is required at all events across Australia.  Whilst each Portable Bar is different,  they all come with Servery Windows, Full Electrical Fitout, Commercial Grade flooring and Front Serving Counters.

Our Portable Bars take the worry out of organising several contractors for the one job.  Event Studios Australia can arrange the Design, Signage, Hire, Delivery, Install and all of the Certification.

Portable Bards for Hire

We offer both Portable Bar Hire and Portable Bars for Sale. The main difference with our Bars and other Shipping Container Modifications is we offer the customer the full Branding Package. Most Shipping Container Bars in the Industry will just offer the Bar that needs to have a Façade built around it.

Whilst we can organise all of the Signage, Façade work within the Bars infrastructure so once it turns up onsite the Bar is ready to go rather than days onsite building around the Shipping Container bar with Branding.

Portable Bars FAQ

What are the Advantages of a Commercial Portable Bar

Our Portable Bars versatility and Transportability sets it apart from other Bar Structures like Marquees and Tents.  Many of our Customers will book us in for one event in Melbourne and will use our Transport and Logistics team to move the same Bar across different events across Australia, still fitted with the same signage and Branding ready to activate across several events without having to re-hire the bar at other venues.

Do the Portable Bars come with Fridges.

We generally don’t provide Fridges with our bars as they are usually delivered and installed separately once the Portable bars are delivered and installed.  To avoid damage to the Fridges and the bars inside its best they do not come delivered with the bars.  There are many Fridge Rental companies around that cater for these.   We can help with Keg Systems, and a bar usually have space on the front counters to slot in the keg systems but there are many keg hire businesses that will happily install their systems into our Bars.

How does the Signage on the container bars work.

We either use Tension Canvas Banner signage or Self Adhesive Vinyl (SAV).   Once you have placed your order, we just give you the dimensions of each surface area.  Once you come back to us with your artwork, we will do the rest with suppling and installing your branding.

What other Options are available with the Portable Bars?

We also have Top Deck Bars,  where you can fit up to 14 people on the roof of the Bar!   We installed AS compliant Stairs and Landing onsite, with the top deck fitted with Balustrades and lined with Astroturf to create the ultimate event focal point.
