Meissl – even where you wouldn’t expect it.


The industrial area without nearby gastronomy on the outskirts of the city. The seminar house in a secluded coastal location. The special self-service event location in the mountains. What all these places have in common? They are not exactly the center of the world. But that doesn't mean they can't be equipped like one!

At Meissl Open-Air Solutions, we're always looking for new ideas and concepts. We love to think outside the box. And especially lately, one particular question has been on our mind:

What could self-service umbrellabar solutions for remote locations look like? And: What functions and features would these have to bring to the table?

Just think of an industrial area on the outskirts of a city or in a remote rural area. The next restaurant is far away and difficult to reach for the employees during their short lunch break.

Let's take it even further: a seminar house somewhere in the middle of nowhere. Only you and your team are on site and while everything is taken care of inside the house, you would like to enjoy a cool drink under the parasol outside, especially in nice weather.

Our solution: an umbrellabar. Equipped with an integrated vending machine and seating in case one, for case two, for example, with an attached kitchen container. It not only creates an affordable option for catering to employees and guests while guaranteeing a real highlight effect. It can also be rented out if required. Further clear advantages are obvious: One does not need much staff, just two people are already enough to operate an umbrellabar. The solution with integrated vending machines even works without any human intervention. Finally, the fixed costs are low because the entire system can simply be shut down whenever it is not in use. A win-win situation for both sides.

Two of many imaginable possibilities to use a Meissl solution "in a different way". We are just thinking out loud - feel free to think along...
