Converting our standard shipping containers into bars is one of Shipping Containers Adelaide’s most exciting services, offering you the chance to launch your new business at a fraction of the cost of building or renting a static bar.

Custom-made shipping container bars work really well as pop-ups at surf tournaments, music festivals, markets, car boot sales or any outside event where large crowds are expected to gather. They can also be installed on a long-term basis in an area of your choice, provided you obtain the necessary permission from the local authority and there is access for out trucks.

Portable Shipping Containers Make Great Permanent Businesses

Bars are the lifeblood of any city with Adelaide being no exception. There is always room for a dynamic new business, and a converted shipping container to a high standard by Shipping Containers Adelaide is a quick and easy way for you to get yours up and running. Spend time creating the right vibe and your new venture could soon become the lively hub of the neighbourhood. We can work with you to provide all the features and design flourishes you’d expect in a brick-built structure.

Adelaide has some terrific potential locations for your new bar, the CBD being one of the most attractive. Unlike most capital cities, it’s actually possible to live in the centre of town without breaking the bank, meaning there’s a real community feel. You might also find a plot of land in a hip, inner suburb like Kent Town or Norwood. Further out you’ll find Port Adelaide is enjoying a real makeover, while Croydon is now attracting creatives and students as families migrate to new suburbs. And if you find business starting to tale off you can simply load your shipping container onto a truck and move to greener pastures.

Shipping Container Bars as Promotional Tools

Think of your custom-built shipping container bar as a glorified advertising hoarding, decked out in your company logo, banners flying in your corporate colours and cool music pumping out. You could establish an inescapable presence at one of Adelaide’s ‘Mad March’ events, where four of Adelaide’s busiest festivals collide, including WOMADelaide and Clipsal500 – Australia’s biggest motorsport event.  We can install lighting, glass sides, refrigeration, shelving, stainless steel food prep tables, serving hatches and even air-conditioning, provided there’s a sufficient power source. People will find it hard to believe that this was once a humble shipping container!  We recommend that you opt for an insulated unit because steel containers tend to behave like ovens in summer and freezers in winter. They are available in a choice of 10ft shipping containers, 20ft shipping containers or 40-foot lengths and can even be joined and stacked to provide a huge space.

Tough Steel Construction to Protect Your Business

Because they have shipping container DNA, the superstructure of all our shipping container bar conversions is designed to cope with the harshest and most challenging conditions at sea. Which means they’re exceptional at coping with the hot, dry Adelaide summers. And the surprisingly bitter winter days that sneak up on you, and whistle down Grote Street and Hindley street when you least expect it!

Our Container Bars are built from marine grade Corten steel which is the industry standard and, once fitted with lock boxes and heavy duty steel shutters, will remain nigh-on-impregnable to most burglars. This means you can leave your bar overnight, even at remote sites, without worrying that your stock and fittings will be pilfered. And with proper maintenance, your shipping container bar will last for decades.


Modifying a Shipping Container is Easy

There are many additions or modifications you can make to your container, and our accessories list gives you a good idea of the most requested modification items. Whirlybirds, air vents, servery windows, shelving, power-points and data points, work benches, bathrooms, fluorescent lights, paintwork and more are all available. Your modifications can be as small (lockbox, shelves, flooring etc) or as extensive (entire residential fit out, including bathroom, kitchen, and laundry) as you want. If you have a grander idea in mind – an envy-inducing, customer-attracting trade show exhibit, for instance, or a movable feast of food festival booths, then we can also help. Shipping Containers Adelaide have one of the largest shipping container modifications facilities in Australia and a talented team of modification experts, so your shipping container can be customised to your specific needs with ease.
