Former Rewind Festival GM launches bar structures company

The former general manager of Rewind Festival, Paul Carey, has launched BarGo, a bar structures company.

BarGo creates modular themed bars from three shipping containers, which can be transformed from one theme to another with relative ease. Carey has combined forces with S2 Events, which specialise in creating themed structures. The creative design agency Fluro is also involved in the project, creating specific designs to fit a range of different themes.

Carey commented: “It feels like the time is right to launch BarGo, as there is a demand out there for innovative and creative designs, which can bring events to life. There is a definite gap in the market for BarGo to bring some new and exciting structures to UK events this summer.

“Having run Rewind Festival I’ve garnered a real insight into what works for festivalgoers and events and what doesn’t. The concept of a modular self contained bar that can be easily dropped into any event in the UK and can also be transformed from one look to another is completely new and is an event organiser’s dream. The bar is literally dropped on site, plugged in and off you go.”

Carey is initially launching the company with a basic “urban looking” bar that can be built upon and turned in to Stubbs McGhee’s, which is a Texan-themed bar. The structure can also be “smartened up” to create a VIP bar, and takes just a few hours to change theme.
