Container Bar, to be built in Austin, Tx, will be constructed from 10 used 40 foot high cube shipping containers stacked on top of each other and arranged around a courtyard.
The interiors will be new, but the exteriors will retain their industrial look. Each container will include bathrooms, air conditioning and LED lighting, and is big enough to hold 24 bar stools.
With construction starting in October 2012, Container Bar is scheduled to open in January.
The idea came into fruition two years ago after the owner bought the first 6 shipping containers on eBay and converted them by adding insulation, windows, doors, electrical, plumbing etc.
In addition to a full-service bar, the courtyard will feature a stage for live music and a large screen for movie screenings.
