Whether you are undergoing renovation, your current space has been damaged or you have a short term need, our temporary buildings are perfect for use as restaurants, canteens, cafes, and bars. Arena have extensive experience in building temporary canteens, restaurants, cafés, and bars for the events industry as well as for commercial businesses and education establishments. Choose from a huge range of available structures, interior design, furniture, flooring, and layout to give you the aesthetic that you are looking for.

The most cost-effective structure would be an Allu Hall tent used effectively to house a temporary restaurant at many events such as Cheltenham, Aintree, Newmarket, and D-Day 75 . If you want something that looks more permanent, go for the Manhattan used recently at Wimbledon Championships or the Multi-Storey which we use every year for the Natural History Museums Ice Rink Café and Bar – this is a stunning structure and makes for a great bar or restaurant space, available with or without a viewing gallery.

We can incorporate catering areas, VIP areas, reception zones, washrooms, cosy corners, bars, and even dance floors. We also supply climate control systems, furniture, catering equipment, and cutlery, crockery, and glassware through our sister company www.welldressedtables.com.

Whatever your vision, contact us and we can make it a reality.

Covid-19 Restaurant Extensions

We can help you create more space to allow for the social distancing of your customers and protect your revenue.

For many, creating the additional space required with existing space will be a challenge.

Arena can quickly expand your footprint and canteen, restaurant and bar capacity allowing patrons to keep their distance from one another whilst enjoying the atmosphere and each other’s company safely.





Heritage Sites, Museums & Country Homes

There are many thousands of period properties in the UK.

Often, the gift shops and cafes need renovation so temporary space is required to continue business as usual during the renovation.

We have provided many temporary structures for cafes, shops, and admission spaces, working hard to deliver a seamless aesthetic in keeping with the main property.
