We do already have a range of island bars but this is our first full circular bar counter, I feel that a circular bar needs to be this size as a minimum to achieve the correct image and also provide correct workspace for the bar staff. Our in house designer worked very hard putting the wire frame design together before the work on the build started. Credit goes to our IT designer and the assembly team at Mobile Bar Hire”.

Pop Up Shops and Bars

Housing minister Mark Prisk has urged to use pop up shops and bars to help revitalise the struggling high street. The government have set up their own pop up store at the Department for Communities and Local Government – designed by John Lewis; it has been leased out since it opened on December 18th. It is leased to six small online retailers every few weeks to help refill vacant shops by store closures and retailers collapsing. Prisk believes this will revitalise high streets, but only if landlords move away from conventional blue chip chains. One company that is backing the idea is Mobile Bar Hire – they believe that the use of pop up shops and bars will bring people back to the high street that has been on such a downturn in recent years. Pop up bars could be looked at as a social meeting point for certain parts of town centres and shopping malls. With the thought of pop up shops possibly being sole traders or start up businesses, hiring of shop counters is part of the service offered by market leaders – Mobile Bar Hire. What are your thoughts on the idea of Pop Up shops and possibly pop up bars? Let our news editors know of your thoughts, contact us....
