Fort Wayne’s First Container Bar is Coming to Town

FORT WAYNE, Ind. (June 13, 2016) – On Monday at 9 a.m., Mosaic Building Solutions and Wine Down Tastings and Tapas will be closing two lanes on Jefferson Blvd. to install Fort Wayne’s first container facility on the wine bar’s outdoor deck.

The $85,000 project will include a 320 ft2 outdoor bar that will be the area’s first custom made structure from a steel shipping container. The box will provide an indoor kitchen and bartending space, with seating for up to 30 along the outside counter.  

“When Wine Down came to us with this idea, we were thrilled to tackle a design that is not only a new concept for downtown, but also for the Fort Wayne area,” says President of Mosaic Building Solutions, Jake Fetters. “This will give our client the ability to service their outdoor customers with a different and exciting environment that will be one of a kind in the city.”

Not only will this be unique outdoor space, but the project is also a part of a green initiative. With a surplus of shipping containers due to import/export disparities, this new trend aims to repurpose containers into maintainable and functional spaces for businesses by installing openings, electrical, gas, water and specialized painting.

Located on the corner of Jefferson Blvd. and Harrison St., Wine Down Tastings and Tapas plans to open the new space on July 1, 2016.
