From Temporary Animal Cafes to Emoji Pop-Up Bars

 - Aug 18, 2015
Pop-up bars combine two wonderful concepts -- experiential retail spaces and alcoholic experimentation. The pop-up concepts in this collection serve a wide range of purposes. In some cases, they're a chance for a brand to bring a new product or marketing campaign to its consumers in a truly memorable way. They can also serve to reconnect a brand with its audience by reminding them of what they love about a certain product.

Pimm's has used pop-up bars to reconnect with its target demographic -- its Heathrow Croquet pop-up and Wimbledon Tea Pot Bar are just two branded examples. Pop-up bars can also offer a niche bar experience that wouldn't lend itself to a permanent venue. For example, the Owl Bar Animal Cafe targets bird lovers with a beverage obsession.

Finally, pop-up bars offer an experiential drinking adventure that can only be created by the temporary nature of the pop-up. The traveling bar would have nowhere near the same excitement if it didn't appear in a different place each time. Pop-up bars may be temporary but the memories and impressions they create are long-lasting.
