This job was for a bar owner who had been asked to do the catering and provide the bar for a wedding in a marquee.
The brief being that it must be transportable, easy to store, have capacity for all the barrels and coolers and glasses and be big enough for two staff to run it. Originally, he had in mind a ‘mini pub’ with oak panels and corbels but went with this idea of being more modern, sleeker and easier to clean (cheaper too). Its a pine frame construction sheeted with moisture resistant MDF, painted with Becker Acroma white waterborne satin and then overlacquered with a clear gloss, which gave a really deep shine to it. The top is cherry mdf with a solid lipping, coated with a floor varnish. Low voltage LED spotlights were used instead of Halogen for the lights in case a small child might be tempted to touch the lens and get a burn. This job can be configured in a couple of ways as well to suit the venue.
