Tiny Tavern on Wheels

We’ve all heard of tiny houses, but what about a tiny tavern? Check out this one – on wheels – designed by Tongue & Groove.

Outside, you’ll notice wooden siding and a shed roof. Much like a food truck, this tavern comes with a service window. Unlike most of them, it also has six collapsible bar stools for patrons to sit at. This example isn’t yet complete, but the finished product will include an awning, three beer taps, a fold down beer pong table, cornhole, washers, kan jam and more.

Please enjoy, learn more, and re-share below. Thank you!

    Wow… damned uncomfortable looking seats! Wouldn’t get much drinking happening trying to balance on that… oh wait… it isn’t finished? Better to wait until it is then methinks. That way we can make reasoned comments. Well, methinks anyway.

    what about a toilet facility ? A watering hole needs a facility of some description… ;-)

    I agree with all three of you!

    John raises the questionability of getting an alcohol-serving permit. About the only way I’d see this happening is if the “bar truck” is being built by an entity (likely a brewer) which already has permits, probably for use as a booth at venues like Oktoberfests or fairs. If that’s the case, having a specially-designed THOW rather than serving out of a 10’x10′ “pop-up” allows the brewery to enhance its brand as well as have better facilities for events it’s doing anyway.

    Sander raises an equally good point regarding “facilities”. In addition to toilet(s) and hand-washing for the customers, health regulations require them for employees (hand-washing even more than toilets!). If, as I hope, this is being built for use by a brewery, the venues where they’re showing their goods would have the restroom facilities… But they should still have something for their employees.

    This brings me to the most irrefutable point: Eric’s. Why not WAIT until the Tiny BierGarten On Wheels is FINISHED before posting an article? (As for the seats, you can BARELY see, in the photo, that there’s a circular wooden seat-piece under the butt of the seated guy, though there are none on the other seat-supports in the row.)

    It’s great to include “under construction” photos and descriptions in an article showing the finished Tiny-whatever; this allows DiYers to benefit from others’ ideas… However, this should be just PART of a FULL article showing the finished project, and, better yet, showing it “in use”.

    Me thinks this thing would best be suited for weddings, private parties on private land, etc. I don’t believe you need a liquor license for those kind of things. However, with that said, I’m sure this guy knows that already and has gotten what he needs to operate in the public places, probably with restrictions.

    Honestly. Some folks only see as far as the opposite rim of the beer mug. Imagine one of these all kitted out as as an Olde Style Public House as a party rental. Yes, the amortization might take some time, but then it depends on the market. Weddings, anniversaries, stag parties, fraternity bashes, birthday blowouts… I’d wager you could rent this for $500 t0 $1000 per weekend/occasion and in the right demographic area, you’d do well. A good size catering company would want one. Add shade sails, some bar height tables, string lights and a little musical ambiance and you’ve got another profit center.

    I’ll bet some localities offer temporary liquor licenses for special events as well.

    This seems like a no-brainer.

    Just FYI to all of the people making comments about licensing and permits. All Carnivals and Fairs and most events have a Beer location, Margarita Stands, etc. This is a fantastic idea, and also for parties get togethers all types of events. It is not hard nor is it expensive to get license. All restaurants that have a beer license can get an off location license for events. IF he is set up with food it would be a no brainer. As far as a restroom if your at a big event restrooms are available to the public, and if its a private event DAWH there has to be a rest room there. Very creative love your idea. Check it out
