MediaCityUK asked us for a brand new pop-up bar named the Dock Bar, situated on the vast Piazza area outside the big screen and flanked by the metrolink tram stop, BBC sport, Cbeebies and The Studios. Due to the site not having much in the way of bars for social drinking, Peel and MediaCityUK wanted a summer bar out on the Piazza for Wimbledon, the Euro’s, The Olympics and the F1, in line with the BBC’s Summer of Sport.
WhiteCircle were chosen to build this brilliant pop-up structure out of our shipping container product WhiteCrate. Our container conversion will be made up of two 20ft containers and will host a covered outdoor seating area for those sunny (and not so sunny) days.
The bar has been in since the beginning of the summer, and has done phenomenally well, with the fantastic Fluid Bars doing a great job with the everyday running of the bar hosting some of the best cocktail bartenders in the north making great themed concoctions in line with each sporting event shown on the big screen.
The award winning WhiteCrate is a unique, eye-catching, versatile, affordable, rapid- deployment structure. Designed and engineered to be operated easily and safely by the bar staff, the unit can be closed up and left at night with the assurance stock is fully secure. One, or a number of units can be deployed in to any environment and we can accommodate both bespoke commissions or rental projects.
