Singha Beer have proudly brought the authentic taste of Thailand to East London, #SinghaStreet was trending and beers were flowing out of this refurbished, previously used, 20ft side opening shipping container.

Singha Beer, the original beer of Thailand, has launched a good number of Singha Street Bars this year and Budget Shipping Containers were proud to be supplying the container for their latest pop-up bar at Hackney Wick, London. Working with Wholehearted Ltd, a fantastic Creative Production Agency trailing a blaze as one of London’s most exciting new agencies, this was always going to be a one of a kind shipping container!

The Thai beer brand has set up the Singha Street Bar, running for 10 weeks, at Night Tales, a food and drink experience taking place in Hackney, London.

Visitors can head to the glittering deck with a vantage point, enjoy street food paired with a Singha Beer, or enjoy some snacks beneath a pagoda before heading to the dance floor.

The Singha Street Bar is open at Night Tales on Fridays from 5pm -11.30pm and on Saturdays from 2pm until 11.30pm. Night Tales opened its doors on 24th June and runs until the end of August.

A side opening shipping container ticked all of those boxes and, with our hiab delivery service as well, we got the container exactly where it was needed – albeit after a bit of too-ing and fro-ing and studying many photos and maps of the site with David Beverly (the chap in charge of Wholehearted’s operations)

These side opening shipping containers are becoming a more popular option and ‘starting block’ if you like for conversions into self contained mobile exhibition stands, cafes, bars, snack stands and even small retail outlets.
