OAB Loves… Bars!

Apart from the obvious, here’s why we love these outdoor event bar concepts

Experiential concepts from GL events

Anyone who visited the Showman’s Show this year couldn’t fail to be impressed with GL events’ English country pub interior in one of their impressive structures. Proving that their expertise lies in more than event infrastructure that looks good from the outside, the in-house creative team got busy with wood panelling, gilt framed pictures and mirror, barrel tables and Chesterfield-style furniture.

The installation proves the company’s creative flair when it comes to the interiors of its temporary structures, and the service it can offer event designers. The pub concept is expected to be adopted throughout 2018 among GL events’ many sporting events clients, from golf to horse racing. It will also feature in breakout and hospitality areas among the company’s exhibition and large convention clients.

Pop Up PubsWE LOVE…
Instant pubs from Pop Up Pubs

Well, just look at it! Perfect in our opinion for weddings, corporate events, festivals, sporting events, and private parties, the Pop Up Pub is built around a core of three shipping containers and arrives on the back of two lorries. All you need is 10x20m of stable ground for unloading and siting, and it will be up in just two hours!

Totally customisable (add your own name etc.), it has some ingenious uses of space, including an alfresco area / viewing platform for 50 guests, an enclosed seating area for buffets or cocktails, a cosy bar and a walk through space with optional walk through doors for use with marquees or hidden areas.

Portable FloormakerWE LOVE…
The Barlok portable bar unit from Portable Floormaker

Barlok is a modular, RGB LED portable bar unit that needs no screws or tools to assemble. It uses a locking mechanism and can be configured in a straight line or with corner sections to make an octagon for a fab focal point.

It is packed with features – our favourite being the LED, DMX controllable bar frontage. Apart from its visual quality, it has great practicality and is full of ‘behind the bar’ extras including ice shelves and speed rails.

Quick and easy to move, it can be stored within purpose-built flight cases. This unit is spot on as a bar for events and weddings, and even as a DJ booth.
