Join the revolution of the outdoor bar

Concepts that make hospitality areas more efficient are in demand with the ever-increasing need for green solutions. With its long-standing photovoltaic expertise and steel construction know-how, HBT is constantly developing new, intelligent outdoor bar and kiosk solutions that increase awareness of hospitality’s green initiatives, optimize efficiency and improve guest experience. It’s in how HBT electrify, manufacture and design mobile unites that they’re setting the benchmark for tomorrow’s outdoor bars and kiosks – today.

Guests today expect and need solutions that make their consumptions simpler, more relaxing and affordable. Hotels and resorts, on the other hand, face the challenge of reducing the costs, noise and CO2 emissions of operation. The challenge today is to take all these requirements and blend them seamlessly into a single harmonious entity, and in doing so actively contribute towards protecting the environment. So, it is not surprising that outdoor bars which offer a perfect symbiosis of a revolutionary kiosk, an ecofriendly solar power station and a mobile unit are very popular.


HBT’s new kiosk generation CUBOX meets all these requirements and is a true green-tech solution for sustainable companies. It is the very first kiosk which merges design, efficiency and climate protection and is available for beaches, private gardens, VIP areas and events. And with the high-quality equipment, many of the common uses such as bar, food stall, info-point, pop-up store can be implemented.

And this is how this future technology works: the heart piece is a sophisticated solar system consisting of integrated solar cells on the roof and the lateral flaps, supplemented with high-performance batteries for energy storage. This combination ensures continuous power supply even in unfavorable weather conditions. Another state-of-the-art feature: The batteries can be fully charged in less than three hours only with the power of the sun. As soon as the four flaps are opened, the kiosk is ready to serve the first guests. In addition to its environmentally friendly solar power station, the CUBOX is a mobile unit that enables full local flexibility.


Putting powerful technologies in a box that would be small and mobile enough to be set up anywhere came with a couple of serious challenges. This led to even greater and more creative solutions.

The extraordinary shape of the CUBOX creates room and prestige. It is an expression of your individuality and your business. That’s why the CUBOX is designed in such a way as to mirror your very own style: Customize the CUBOX just the way you like – from functional to luxurious. This is unmistakable elegance. Use the CUBOX anywhere you want and make your own unique business ideas a reality. This is freedom that no other kiosk offers.

Nowadays, when designing state-of-the-art kiosks, not only architectural quality requirements have to be taken into account, but also their impact on the environment and the climate. The aim is to place kiosks in an architecturally and environmentally balanced relationship, as it is possible with CUBOX. Furthermore, the CUBOX not only provides for maximum cost- effectiveness, but also meets the strict requirements you set for your prime locations. It’s a matter of quality, the environment, reliability, and performance. And, of course, of fascination, inspiration, and exclusivity. This is what we understand by sustainable lifestyle.


Dubai’s beaches have always been all about luxury, the Emirate expects top performance and even in the nation’s largest city, sustainability including power production using sources of renewable energy is the order of the day. The fact that CUBOX is installed on the beach of Dubai’s Fairmont luxury hotel shows that the Austrian firm’s innovation reflects the spirit of the time and meets all requirements, both in terms of appearance and performance. On the one hand, the futuristic kiosk scores points with its modern design and on the other, the CUBOX’s technical solutions guarantee trouble-free bar operation including green energy around the clock. “The outdoor bar is so successful that many parties who have seen it have already expressed their interest in purchasing a CUBOX,” HBT’s Managing Director Heinz Bartelmuss tells us.


With its extraordinary design, the CUBOX is a real eye-catcher and acts as your "green business card". Whether private garden, seafront or beach - the CUBOX is an innovative kiosk for almost all applications. We are obliged to contribute to sustainability and our commitment can be seen in our management principles, our daily operations and our products. Our aim is to reduce environmental impact at every level, and to encourage our partners, customers and staff to do the same.


Long gone are the days when reusing towels and automatic lights rendered a hotel eco-friendly. The standards are, sensibly, a lot higher now, as hotels continue to commit to sustainable practices. In 2016 16 New York hotels have signed a commitment to lower their greenhouse gas emissions by 30 per cent in the next decade. The CUBOX is your step in the right direction.
