Music City BBQ Festival – Bar Building Contest Entry

A few weeks ago we were contacted by some folks about a Bar Building Competition over at the Music City Festival & BBQ Championship that’s set to kick-off this weekend, August 24th & 25th. Never one to turn down a challenge to go head-to-head with other designers in a friendly display of creativity, we decided to submit a design concept and participate in the selection process.

Our entry, a tongue-in-cheek play on 2nd Look, pertains to something very familiar to visitors of lower Broadway: the dueling piano bar. Designed to be a modular bar that  has the ability to fold town into a compact size suitable for towing on a flatbed trailer ( for travelling to other BBQ Competitions, for easier storage when not in use, advertising, etc.), which we dubbed “The Dual-ing Piano Bar”. When open for business, bar hoppers and bystanders are treated to live entertainment, ample room for congregation,  an efficient work space for 1-2 employees, all built using sustainable materials.

While our playful, yet practical piano bar concept won’t be built during this weekend’s event,  we were selected as one of five finalists… an accomplishment that we are very proud of. Anyways, we wanted to share our design with everyone, and wish the two finalists competing this weekend good luck! To the organizers of the bar build, and everyone that we had the pleasure of meeting during the evaluation process, a sincere ‘thank you’ for the opportunity. We’ll be back next year!

What do you think of our idea? Will you be headed to the Music City Festival & BBQ Championship this weekend in downtown Nashville? Sound off in the comments!
