Shipping container bars have quickly gained popularity in Australia due to their unique design, low cost, and portability. With the rise of the food and beverage industry in Australia, container bars (much like container cafes) have become an essential part in music festivals, weekend markets, hospitality functions, retail developments, sporting events and outdoor corporate events.

Tiger Shipping Containers excels in modifying shipping containers to give you cost-effective and practical solutions tailored to your business needs. And when it comes to innovative business ideas, our award-winning shipping container bars will really make you stand out from the crowd!


One of the biggest benefits of choosing to add a shipping container bar is that you can start business very quickly after we deliver it to your chosen location. We can do a total internal fit-out to give you everything you need to open, and the nature of this bar makes it easy to move from location to location should you need to.

Container Bar Weight

The weight of a shipping container bar varies depending on its size and the materials used in its construction. Generally, a container bar weighs between 1,500 kg and 4,500 kgs. But again, it very much depends on the size of your container and what design features you incorporate.

Your Container Bar is a One-of-a-Kind Design

As much as the drinks and service are important at a bar, what often makes one bar unique from another is the atmosphere and the location. And this is where a shipping container bar comes into its own. As you can literally place it anywhere!
The use of shipping containers as bars started with the trend of upcycling and repurposing old containers for various purposes. Their sturdy steel frames, durability and portability made them a popular choice with business owners looking to enter the market without breaking the bank or having to pay exorbitant rent.

secure and durable container bars with australia-wide delivery

All of our container bars at Tiger Shipping Containers feature a steel structure with a wooden floor for superior durability. You can choose to have us fit your container bar’s doors with a lock and the windows can have heavy-duty shutters made from steel that shut securely when you’re not using them. Also, shipping containers must withstand extreme conditions, so ours are made out of marine-grade steel that will survive the harshest environment. So, you can rest easy and know that your shipping container bar is secure, safe, and locked up when it’s not in use.
