There is no doubt that mobility has enhanced our everyday lives. From the first hunter-gatherers to über-connected modern individuals on the go (and in the smart home), forging new trails has always been about expanding the human experience. Despite the need and desire for humans to make connections, sometimes the process is best helped along with a little social lubrication.

The Fortaleza Folding Outdoor Bar And Stools ($599.95) brings the party to wherever you want it to be. Consisting of a bar top and two shelves, the portable bar folds up for easy storage or mobility. The 40-inch tall bar measures 48 inches across and has a 17-inch depth. Included are two matching bar stools. Constructed from eucalyptus, the wooden bar incorporates nylon mesh screens in the front and along the sides for visual appeal while aiding in portability.

As with all experiences, one way to draw a crowd is to add food and beverage. However, with only two barstools included in the portable bar, getting a seat isn't going to be easy (additional stools are sold separately). For those lucky enough to join the party, the shelving allows ample room to fully stock the bar -- making it so that once the party starts nobody will even have to make a run to the liquor store.
