Your very own portable bar!

Justincase portable barLike to have  a drink or two when you travel?   Then check out  this amazing portable bar from designer Rene Chavanne. It can be assembled in just 3 minutes, without the need for any tools. This sturdy unit is brought to us by Justincase Portable Bar Systems  and looks to be the perfect companion for Cook’s Barbecue Kitchen which I documented last month.

  1. Portable!?! Maybe for someone bigger then me, but carrying 60 lbs. (27kg) wouldn’t be that easy for me through the airport. But it does sound pretty good for those car trips …

    I also like the different options they are offering. Any idea about pricing?

  2. Hi Courtney and welcome to A Luxury Travel Blog.

    Well… portable in the sense that it can travel with you is what I meant! For sure, it wouldn’t be too easy to carry around (even if it does have handles of a sort) but, as you point out, it could be loaded on and off a vehicle with reasonable ease.

    With regards price, I don’t know yet… but will post here as soon as I know.



  3. Thanks! I’ve added you to my RSS feed.

    I thought I saw something on their webpage that each item was customized between 2.500 Euro and 4.500 but I wasn’t sure how flexible that became …

  4. I’ve sent them an email and will report back as soon as I’ve heard anything.

    Glad to hear you’ve added the RSS feed. Just out of interest, are you following the feed for the entire blog or just specific categories?

  5. For the whole thing – since I am on the web all day anyway. I have a few of the luxury travel blogs like The Informed Traveler, Hotel Chatter, Gridskipper, or Vagablond on a Google personalized homepage of RSS feeds. This way I can see when anyone has updated with an article. Very helpful.

    Thanks again.

  6. Hi again, Courtney… may I ask what your role is at Five Star Alliance? And how many of you are there?

    Sorry to be so inquisitive – I guess I must be too nosey for my own good!

  7. At Five Star Alliance I am currently the Manager of Revenue and Hotel Relations. I also do all of the e-mail marketing and site content. Including The Informed Traveler Newsletter and Editorial Advisory Board on the Blog. At this point – you name it – I’ve either done it, do it or probably will do it in the future.

    Our head office is in Alexandria, Virginia and we have a few people there – as well as some other support offices in Virginia, New Jersey and internationally. We launched the company and our site in May 2005 and have continued to grow since.

    How about you?

  8. I am Managing Director of The Dedicated Partnership Ltd. (that site is sadly neglected due to other commitments but will get updated one day!) which is a relatively small business based in Kendal, on the edge of the English Lake District National Park. I don’t know if it’s an area you are familiar with, but it’s very beautiful here… one of the most picturesque parts of the UK, so I’m very lucky!

    The company consists of just three of us at present, plus around 40-50 freelancers who do varying amounts of work. We have been trading since 1993 (trading name has altered slightly over the years) and are responsible for a number of travel-related websites, for clients primarily in the UK. Over the years we’ve also developed a number of in-house projects which have proved extremely successful (eg. the suite of sites at UKseries and Aardvark Travel (have a look at the forums there!) and so our business has been shifting in that direction in more recent years.

    This blog obviously relates to my work in part, but it’s also a hobby too. I like to work hard and play hard, and that means going to nice places when I take time out!


  9. JustinCase have been back in touch, by the way. The price varies depending on which configuration and branding you choose. The price starts with 2,350 EUR net for a single bar. There’s a variety of options that can (significantly) push that sum up.
