Open for Business: The Yard Bar

Despite bars and restaurants offering both indoor and outdoor seating again, many people are still not ready to go out. That’s where the Yard Bar comes in. They take cocktails to-go to a whole new level.

The Yard Bar is like a transformer. A trailer that’s more than meets the eye, opening up to a full bar with high top tables, TVs, and a sound system.

Owner Kevin Shufelt was first inspired after seeing elaborate tailgating setups at college football games. That was long before anyone was worried about a pandemic. Things were good, but he’s expecting them to get even better. 

They actually have two of these mobile bars. The first was built in 2017. The 2020 model, which was completed in January, is a little bigger and more elaborate. With either, you can just rent the bar and stock it and mix drinks yourself or get the full package complete with booze and bartender.
