Went on a Thursday, dance floor was in full swing! Lots of room to hang out and the bar itself is a big container so it’s pretty cool.

Really cool design. The Saturday we were there had a really good DJ playing tracks from 90's to today. Was an easy going crowd and easy to order at the bar. Pretty cool.

This is a unique drinking hole built entirely of shipping containers. Bartenders are friendly and skilled, and the cocktail menu is awesome. Misting fans keep the patio cool even on a hot summer evening.

We made a lot of stops to hear live music and the best was by far at the Container Bar. Worth a stop!!

Its a cool bar built out of containers with live music playing...but outside of that, its a bar. Its mostly outdoors, so a rainy night will not be fun. The staff were very cool/friendly and had great recommendations.

Typical club setting, but the entertainment factor is the DJ with incredibly high energy levels who dances as much as the music he plays.

When we visited it was around 7pm-ish. There was not a cover, but, also, the band had not started playing yet. It may depend on the time you go and if there is a band playing.
