Recently I had the fortune to enjoy a few days of vacation on a beautiful island in Malaysia. Good weather, tranquility, beaches and cocktails… maybe the perfect ingredients to discover numerous bars made with wooden pallets. The low resources and inventive of the islanders certainly have contributed to build all these businesses with pallets. Next I show you some pictures of these bars.
This was the one I liked the most, virtually all of the bar was made of pallets, all the structures such as the bars, the entrance and the fence that surrounds the bar; except the furniture and the ceilings that were made of palm leaves.
This one had the grace that was just an U-shaped bar on the street, so all the customers that were seated in the bar could have a conversation between them. The bar and some stools were made of pallets, of course it was a gathering place for retirees and expatriates where they had cheerful conversations.
The Wood’s is a music bar where all the walls are made of pallets, the walls are not completely closed so you can see the exterior from the inside of the bar and vice versa.
This beach-bar was right on the seafront, just a few pallets have been enough to build it, do we need something else to enjoy a beer? I think not…
And this was a Restaurant-Bar somewhat more elegant than the rest and also located right on the seafront, many of its furnishings were made of wooden pallets and painted in white, pallets don’t understand categories…
A pub with a very large bar that opened until late in the morning…
But you could not only find bars made of pallets, looking down the main street I also found a couple of stores that were furnished with pallets. The photo above was from a very nice clothes shop, but the one I liked the most was the one of the following photos, a Skaters shop precisely called “THEPALLETS_STORE”. The shop was great and all the furniture was made with so much idea, They made even clothes hangers with metal tubing!
I hope you have enjoyed these ideas and that they can be helpful on your next pallets business, I’m sure they can spare you some money and that you can invest it in other more interesting stuff!
