Since starting this tailgating blog back in 2007, we have tested, tried and demonstrated a lot of tailgating gear and written a lot of tailgating product reviews. Some good and some bad. But because we are a blog, a great product we discovered two years ago may be lost in the tons of posts we have published after discovering it. Maybe you are a new reader and haven’t had the time to pour through every single post we have done in the past three years. So in order to help out the tailgaters that might not have read about some of these cool tailgating products, we will be doing a weekly feature on products we reviewed a while ago. We call it Featured Gear Friday and this week’s product is: The Mobile Tiki Bar
We’ve heard the complaints loud and clear that your tailgate party sucks. Quit your bitchin’ and get some cool tailgating ideas to spruce it up a little bit. You need that little something to give it that extra clout to let everyone know in the tailgating parking lot you know how to freaking tailgate, damn it! Nothing screams tailgate party than to have your own personal bar set up next to your parking stall. And nothing attracts the tailgating girls more than gooey rum blender drinks served from behind a tiki bar. Now you can have your own Mobile Tiki Bar that folds up and fits into the trunk of a Hyundai. Don’t believe us? Prepare to be blown away.
The concept is to have a Mobile Tiki Bar that is portable enough to fit in the smallest of passenger cars, yet when set up, it is so sturdy, you would never know it was portable. When fully assembled the bar top is 59 1/2″ long and 22 1/2″ deep and the counter height is 39″ tall. The total height from the ground to the top of the roof is 86″.
…one person can set up the entire Mobile Tiki Bar in about 10 minutes…
When packed away, this Mobile Tiki Bar fits into a large duffel bag (included with purchase) that measures 40″ long by 25″ high and 25″ wide. The total unit weighs about 60 pounds and one person can set up the entire Mobile Tiki Bar in about 10 minutes. Of course, the process will be faster if you have another set of hands to help but is not necessary. The photo at above right shows the Mobile Tiki Bar packed in the trunk of a Hyundai Elantra. Even when packed into a compact passenger car there is still room for three adults, coolers, chairs and a grill. If it can fit into a Hyundai it will definitely fit into your SUV or the back of your pick up truck.
What’s that you say? Apparently just one Mobile Tiki Bar might not be sufficient? You can purchase two Mobile Tiki Bars and create an L shape or buy three and create a horseshoe shaped tiki bar. You would have to be kidding yourself to think that if you had this set up in the parking lot you would not be the talk of the tailgating world. The only downside to getting one of these is you would have to bring extra rum and mixers because you are sure to get a few young ladies stopping by to check out your tailgate party. (Yeah, like more girls at your tailgate party would be a bad thing.) For all you Parrothead tailgaters out there, this is a must have the next time the Jimmy Buffett concert rolls into town.
If you are considering adding the Mobile Tiki Bar to your tailgating supply, you definitely need to invest in a portable blender for all those drinks you will making. You can’t have a tiki bar set up while tailgating and just serve beer in a can. Picking up a Drill Blender will definitely complete your tailgate party set up. You guessed it. You can now mix up a mean batch of margaritas using your cordless drill for the power. They cost less than $30 and can get your own Drill Blender by visiting our online Tailgating Gear store.
If you have made it this far you probably don’t need any more convincing that this is one tailgating item that will definitely turn heads. The Mobile Tiki Bar costs $650.00 plus actual shipping costs (Usually about $150) and ships from the Orlando, Florida area. You may waive the shipping costs by choosing to pick up your new Mobile Tiki Bar personally if you will be in the Orlando area.
