Portable Bars FAQ

1. How soon can we get the bar to you?

Our commitment is to deliver your portable bar promptly. Before Covid, our standard portable bars typically reached our clients within four weeks, depending on shop workload. For a 100% custom portable bar, the process usually takes about 6 weeks from the time the contract is signed and designs are approved. Due to recent shipping changes, we've had to adjust our delivery expectations slightly. Regardless of these changes, you can trust that we will always keep you informed about your order's status.


In summary, expect 4 weeks for a pre-designed portable bar and 6 weeks for a custom-designed one.

2. Can we run water lines to the Portable Bar

Yes, within reason, this would need to be discussed with our design team, please give us a call to see what is possible. 

3. Can the bar tops be done in stone?

Yes, we are able to manufacture them here, or provide your local stone mason with a template to complete the bar. 

4. Can I use my POS with my Portable Bar?

Yes, you are able to use your POS system with our bar. We are happy to provide an electrical box and chase for either your electrician or a licensed team member to install as we are not UL approved.
