Whether you’re a flair bartender, event or mobile bartender, portable bars are an excellent way for you to conveniently move around the city or country showcasing your talents and skills and earning money while you do it.

Alternatively, these bars are employed by hotels to use in the catering rooms, banquet halls or lobbies, by home bar enthusiasts who like to entertain friends and by fraternities and sororities who throw regular parties.

There really are no limitations to what you can use these home bars for – in addition to birthday parties, weddings and other special occasions, they can be used outside of the bar industry as well.

Due to portability, these quick set up bars are ideal for trade shows and markets where they are used to display and sell anything from jewelry to clothing.

Below we have listed an array of different home and portable bars along with pictures and features. Some of the mobile bars listed below come with free shipping – click the image or the link in the description for more information.  All the bars listed below are sold by our vendor partner BarProducts dot com.


Fully Portable Bars

We’ll start off with some of the completely portable bars – the ones that break down to fit into an over-sized suitcase that you can fit in virtually any car.

Introducing the iMIX portable bar (pictured on left), which has been gaining in popularity, especially for flair bartending competitions.barconic portable bar
As far as portable bars go, whether you’re into flair, event bartending or just something you can bring out when guests come over to the house, this one has it all. And best of all, setup takes all but a couple of minutes. The bar breaks down to fit into a portable suitcase with wheels and a handy pop-up handle so that you can wheel it to events or in and out of storage.

[UPDATE] The iMIX portable bar is no longer available.  Instead, check out the BarConic portable bar (pictured on right) or the Flairco Portable Bar (pictured below) as a replacement.

A step above the old iMIX bar, is the Flairco Portable Bar which has more of an open look to it. Still small and portable, it breaks down to fit snugly inside a suitcase just like its cousin, the iMIX bar. If you’re currently a bartender or you’ve been thinking about bartending, this is an excellent bar to practice from and to take on the road to bartend private events. If you’re into flair, you can’t go wrong with this bar – one of the more portable bars of the bunch, it can be set up in under 5 minutes.

There’s big money in bartending private functions and this bar breaks down into a convenient, rollable suitcase that you can take anywhere. Click on the image to get more info.

Portable Folding Bars

Smart Bar Portable LED Folding BarSmartBar Portable Bar – When setup, these folding bars looks similar to the bars above. Some of the main differences, however, are durability and the ease of setting them up. The bars above fit into an oversized suitcase that can be transported in the trunk of almost any car. This folding bar, by contrast, does just that – it folds flat.

NOTE: The image on the left was an older model which has been replaced by the folding bar you see on the right, called Smart Bar Portable Bar in a Box.

Because it folds flat, its more durable as it has more solid, single sized pieces. So, if you’re looking for something that you can transport in almost any vehicle, take a look at the suitcase bars above. If you’re looking for something to roll out of storage at your house, bar, restaurant or catering event (or if you have a truck or van for transport), than you’ll want to look into this one as a better option. It can be set up and broken down in under a minute and if you’re looking for branding, you can attach a logo, picture or slogan to the acrylic panels or you can get the LED light version you see in the image here.

The SmartBar featured here is 3 feet wide.  For a larger version, see the SmartBar 5LX below.  Full measurements and additional photos, click on the image.

portable bar pro

I’m sure you realize that what you gain in portability, you’ll lose somewhat in durability. Portable bars range from ones that you can fold flat to ones that you can pack in a suitcase, to ones that you can simply roll out of the way into a storage area. Well, this pro bartender portable bar is the latter – one that comes fully assembled and simply rolls out of the way when not needed. And because it comes fully assembled and is not meant to be broken down, its extremely durable.

This bar, called the ‘Pro Bartender’ portable bar, is perfect for banquet rooms, lobbies of hotels, beside the pool or out on the terrace for a dining event. What its not perfect for, is to fold up and carry with you to your next event. However, because it doesn’t break down, its extra sturdy and comes with more storage space than the other bars listed.

Features for this one include an easy to clean molded countertop, a large 56″ serving area, a molded in bar mat and built in removable cutting board as well as sliding storage drawers to house mixers, sodas or glass trays.
