The Airstream Bar

The Bar

Step up to the bar and you’ll be greeted by a seductive 7 ft wooden bar made from re-claimed oak planks recovered from an early 1900’s railway boxcar. Inside is a custom-built stainless steel worktop and sink with running water, professional grade ice well, liquor rail, hand-crafted hardwood shelving and a ridiculous amount of built-in cooler space. This custom built bar is the perfect blend of vintage styling, rustic charm and the practical functionality needed to deliver a professional drinks service.

“We absolutely loved working with Flyingcloud Bars!! My favorite part about our wedding was the unique style we brought to our guest by serving cocktails from the Air Stream and allowing guest to serve themselves from the beer bar. As a wedding planner I work with a variety of vendors and Zach was amazing to work with. He was flexible with set-up and communication was outstanding. If you are looking to bring a unique experience to your guest for any event this is the way to go! Thank you so much for being awesome”.

“The bar has a great look and cool vibes. It really elevated the party. Zack and Nick were a pleasure to work with- very professional and helped work with our budget. I would HIGHLY recommend them for any wedding event.”

Monica

“I would hire them again in a heartbeat for my next event and definitely recommend them to anyone planning any event. Thank you guys for making our day even more special!”

A Labor of Love

We found our vintage Airstream in a barn in central North Carolina. After it was gutted and given a face lift, we cut a 7 ft wide hatch for the bar opening. We then went to work fitting out the interior as a fully functional event bar. We quickly learned that there isn’t a “how to” guide for converting an Airstream into a bar. With lots of help from friends and family, countless hours on google and youtube, some pretty clever solutions (we think) and 2 months of blood (yes, real blood), sweat and tears, we ended up with a bar that we absolutely love.

An American Icon

Airstream trailers have been a constant presence in American travel history for over 80 years. Since 1936 their distinct oblong shape and iconic shiny aluminum finish have been showing up around the globe for a range of uses….as the quarantine trailer for the crewmen of Apollo 11, transporting US Air Force officials and the trailer of choice for 1000’s of “Airstreamers” who share a community spirit based on their common love of the trailer. The story continues with our beautiful ’59 Airstream Pacer.
