What is the Best of Times Bar?

Quite simply, it's a Bar - in a Bag! It is commercial-grade, portable and customizable, and actually affordable. The bar and all of its components break down into a deluxe wheeled travel case for instant convenience. And the fabric wraps can be removed and quickly replaced with any of the other Best of Times fabric wraps. So you can change the look in minutes to easily accommodate any new design, logo change, new promotion or feature an entirely new product line. All with the same universal hardware. Buy a set once and use it over, and over and over again.

Is it meant for indoors or outdoors?

The great thing about the Best of Times Bar is that it can be used inside or outside. When the weather is good, it is the ultimate camping, tailgating, beach day "take-with-you" party on the go. At home it's the ultimate entertainment centerpiece for your backyard,  sun porch or pool-side. Your portable bar can also be brought inside to provide the bar experience for special events or as an everyday piece of furniture. Many of our happy owners have perfected their man cave, play rooms, basements and garages with their Best of Times Bar. It becomes the center of attention wherever and whenever it is used - and can basically go anywhere you want!

What is the bar made of and how durable is it?

The frame of the Best of Times Bar is commercial-grade white powder-coated steel that is durable, but light-weight to enhance portability. The three levels of shelving are commercial-grade blow-mold plastic that is not only strong, but stain-resistant and easy to clean. Every full bar package also includes an insulated food-grade cooler insert with a lid that zips shut that can store up to 24 cans plus ice and a black deluxe wheeled travel case so that all of these components can break down to easily be stored and/or transported.  


What are the dimensions?

The Best of Times Bar is designed to be big enough to fit at least four people comfortably on the stools at the bar, but also to fit within the width of one parking spot for tailgating/farmers markets or a 10x10 trade show booth.

When assembled the bar makes an L-shape that is 63 inches across the front of the bar and stands 43 inches tall. When broken down the components fit in a bag that is approximately 4 feet long, 20 inches high and 20 inches wide.

I don't see the exact design that I want. Do you custom print?  Yes!

Yes! If you can think it. We can print it. Simply email us your company logo, artwork files and design instructions to We'd love to put together a free full-color 3D rendering for you!

Can I use two bars to make one large one?  Yes!

Yes! Many happy clients place two units side-by-side to create one larger bar set-up, no problem!  Click here for more details.

Please note: If you are standing behind the bar (like the bartender) the return on the L-shaped bar is on the left. We do not offer the return on the right-hand side. However, there are several set-up options to still use two bars side-by-side.

Can you tell me more about the Umbrella?

The Best of Times Umbrella is a square market umbrella that stands 8 feet tall and is 6 feet wide on each side. The frame is also made of commercial-grade white powder-coated steel and the pole is a standard 1.5 inches in diameter. It is a 3-piece frame that easily breaks down and can even be stored in the same deluxe wheeled travel bag as the rest of the bar components. The fabric umbrella cover is quick to assemble. Simply center it over the top of the umbrella frame and then extend each of the four arms out into corner pockets for a tight fit. The umbrella has flaps at the top for increased wind-resistance and has a 35 mph wind rating. You also have the option of a Palapa (faux grass) umbrella cover. It is completely interchangeable with the fabric umbrella cover too, so both can be used with the same frame. However, most of our customers have said that they prefer to leave it on the frame after the initial set-up for easier storage.

Can you tell me more about the Stools?

The Best of Times Stools are made of commercial-grade white powder-coated steel and have neutral tan color padded seat cushions for extra comfort. Each stool is the standard 30 inches bar height when unfolded, but can quickly collapse for easy storage. Fabric seat covers are included with every stool set that quickly slip over each seat for a snug fit, but can be easily removed and replaced with a different seat cover/wrap design, if desired. The stools are portable yet extremely durable - each having a 400 lb. weight capacity! 

Best of Times Stools that are purchased direct from our website include a black stool carry case that has an adjustable shoulder strap and can store up to four bar stools. If you purchased your stools elsewhere, the stool bag is available as an add-on option. The stools can be purchased individually, but typically are sold as a set of four.
