JAY KNOWLES
This model shows architect Jay Knowles’ concept for a Rainey Street bar project called Container Bar. It will feature 10 metal shipping containers, each 40 feet long and 10 feet high, around a courtyard with a stage. The owner of three nearby bars, Bridget Dunlap, is behind the project.

Coming soon: Austin’s first bar built from recycled metal shipping containers.

Container Bar, located on Rainey Street on downtown’s southeastern edge, has quickley grown into a hot spot.  Many condos like the Milago and Legacy on the street, residents have nightlife and restaurants within walking distance. 

Container Bar will feature 10 containers — each 40 feet long and 10 feet high — stacked on top of each other and arranged around a courtyard.

The interiors will be new, but the exteriors will retain their industrial look.

Austin architect Jay Knowles designed Container Bar, which will feature stacked containers at its 30-foot entrance. Each four-ton container will include bathrooms, air conditioning and LED lighting, and is big enough to hold 24 bar stools.

With construction starting next month, Container Bar is scheduled to open in January.
