Project Overview

"And now for something completely different..."

When the owners at Set the Bar came to us with the idea of converting a horse trailer to a mobile bar, we were intrigued! While not exactly a vintage trailer, Airstream, or really anything in the wheelhouse we are accustomed to, it was a fun idea. So, we decided to step out of our comfort zone and work with our clients to create something truly special, and that's exactly what we did!

After first ensuring a solid foundation with the frame, adding the vending door, and making the necessary adjustments to enclose the trailer, we sent it off for paint and rolled up our sleeves to get to work! 

All new flooring, electrical, and plumbing came first with the tightest grouping of mechanicals we have ever managed to pull off! Next came the new black aluminum interior walls and custom barback with copper railings and accents, planed cedar planks, and under-mount lighting! Finally, we built out the rest of the trailer with custom cabinets, commercial-grade finishes, and all the necessary fixtures for beverage vending service.

Our clients could not have been more pleased, and we very much enjoyed getting to play with something new - we wish them every success with their Thirsty Mule!
