Leave it to Austin, Texas, that mecca of all things “cool” to bring us this amazing bar primarily constructed out of shipping containers!

What do you get when you stack seven shipping containers together? Well, in the hands of Austin-based restaurateur Bridget Dunlap, you get one unbelievably cool watering hole and gathering space.

Three years in the planning, the Container Bar joins Lustre Pearl, Clive Bar and Bar 96 in a growing list of Dunlap’s accomplishments located on Austin’s bustling Rainey Street.

Designed by North Arrow Studio and Hendley Knowles Design Studio, this unique structure features seven total containers stacked atop each other, two stories in height and arranged to create a courtyard space with a bar in the middle, and an upper deck are with outdoor seating.
