How do I care for my Backyard Bar?
Always close up the bar leaner and door, as the internal linings are untreated and do not like rain. The exterior can be cared for the same way you care for your home – washed each year to remove build-up of salt deposits, bird droppings, mould, and other contaminants that can interact with the surface coating. Repainting should be scheduled every 7-10 years.

"With the re-vamp of our outdoor area at McCashin's Taproom we wanted a way to serve our customers without the long walk to the bar inside. The Backyard Bar fits the purpose perfectly! It was very easy to assemble and has power for a fridge to store ice & cold drinks. It's great for us as we can close it up at the end of the night, lock it and walk away! Thanks Kyle and the team at Backyard Bars. "

"The Backyard Bar. Wow what a great idea. When I talked to Kyle about getting one made in my backyard, he couldn’t be more helpful and giving with ideas to make it work. Cool designs to pick from as well. The delivery process was easy as and the fun part was putting it all together with a few mates. The finished product is great, and I’ve had an awesome time “opening the bar” and inviting friends 'round for a few. Looks great in my backyard and I couldn’t be happier. You certainly won’t be disappointed with the service and what you get. Go for it and enjoy yourself like I am."
