Bar Car was created by Greg Medow, a graduate of the Cornell School of Hotel Administration who has helped launch and support several innovative Bay Area restaurant and bar ventures including Hobson’s Choice, Indigo Restaurant and Crimson Lounge, Cyrus, Foreign Cinema, Mission Bowling Club, Pizzeria Delfina (Palo Alto and Burlingame) and Flanahan’s. His career has been guided by his strong passion for finding ways to surprise and delight people through good food and entertainment.
Drawn to the iconic Airstream trailers, Greg appreciates that they represent a time when life seemed simpler and less stressful. Inspired by this concept, Greg created Bar Car as a way to ease the stress and pressure of throwing a good party. Bar Car is available for private parties and events and can be customized to meet your needs.
AN IDEA TAKES SHAPE & TRAVELS WEST
A complete ‘frame-off’ fabrication of a 1965 Airstream Caravel began in 2012 in a small town outside of New York City. The project took six solid months and survived a number of trials and tribulations throughout the construction process.
Following the completion, Greg and a few friends celebrated the newly minted Bar Car across the country with a few small parties and intimate gatherings. The excitement was building throughout the cross-country journey to the Bay Area.
