Mobile Bars Are the Latest Wedding Trend You Need Get On Board With
Let’s take a moment to collectively agree that every memorable wedding needs a brilliant cocktail station. Looking for inspo for your outdoor bar? The latest mobile bar trend is here to switch your signature drinks into high gear with its adorable, retro-inspired look and go-anywhere ability.
A mobile bar is exactly what it sounds like: A stocked bar — bartender usually included — that brings the party wherever you are. You can opt for a vintage-inspired camper to match your whimsy bohemian wedding decor or a three-wheeled mini truck stocked withbubbly and beer, like the one from Cozy Caravan Club. Either way, it’s sure to make a good impression on your guests.
But there’s no need to limit yourselves to just drinks. If you fancy desserts, a few of these caravans like Sweet Lulu’s come with sweet treats too! Rental rates vary by market, but a mobile bar’s typical price runs between $1,000 to $2,000 depending on the number of bartenders and whether you choose to go with signature cocktails, open bar, draft beer and/or wine. And keep in mind that rates will rarely include the cost of alcohol, so you’ll want to add that to your budget while you’re at it. Just remember to check with your venue for any liquor or business licenses needed since most of these drinks-on-wheels are not licensed to sell alcohol.
The caravans and larger mobile bars are perfect fits for open outdoor or warehouse spaces like vineyards, breweries, parks, and private land. But if you’re in need of something smaller, you can always opt for one of the smaller prosecco and craft beer vans or craft cocktail trucks that can fit into interior spaces like offices, hotels, banquet halls, and rooftops.
