Shipping container to quirky bar

Over the past few years one of the latest trends to hit the pub world has been the pop-up bar, with thousands of operators using these pop-up bars to test the market before committing to long leases or expensive freeholds! Shipping containers for bars have become extremely popular amongst organisations and why not – they are cool, inexpensive, fun and quirky! What’s not to love?!

But it’s not just those in the pub trade that are building bars inside shipping containers. No. Championship Team, Blackburn Rovers Football Club also have their very own shipping containers for bars and we helped supply their latest one to be used in their fan zone for the remainder of this year’s football season.

Designed by, the container bar named ‘Blues Bar’ had its debut on January 2nd 2017 during the Blackburn Rovers vs Newcastle United game. The bar was a massive hit with the Geordies, getting a mention on fan forums and even on Sky News! Not only does the container bar look awesome but it is also a fully functioning bar at 40ft long with 5 serving hatches; a 24 square foot gazebo and enough room for staff to move around and serve all those thirsty fans!

A great project to work on for the team at Kellyseye and something we are extremely proud of! Cheers to the shipping container being used much more over the coming season!

Why they love it!

“The container bar that Kellyseye designed and supplied was a brilliant idea and has been well received from everyone who has used it so far this year! It’s a fantastic concept and I can’t fault the service from Jack and the rest of the team at Kellyseye. We’re looking forward to using the bar more and more throughout this season!”
