Thanks to Paul Crowe from Publicis Toronto for this follow up to the earlier post about Pop up bars and Restaurants:

"When I read the section from Tuesday on the "Pop-up restaurants/bars" I thought of this bar in Melbourne Australia called Section 8. It is a bar created out of old shipping containers. This sort of design could easily lend itself to the pop-up bar scenario."

"Section 8 Container Bar: All Melbournians know the harder the bar is to find the better it is. Section 8 proves no exception to this rule, rising from a former car park in a nondescript Chinatown alley. Two shipping containers make up the bar, bathroom, and store room; the sky doubles as a roof; and wood packing crates and shipping palettes serve as furniture. The bar has quickly become the place to go for a few beverages before heading for a spot of karaoke or hitting one of the many dumpling restaurants in the surrounding streets. For those who party really hard, Section 8 serves “slow food” breakfast sandwiches in the morning hours.

The harder the bar is to find the better. If anyone has any other examples please send them in.
