Don't be put off by the polished and charming appearances that look like they take hours to set up and perfect, all of these bars can quickly set up anywhere and crack on with serving your thirsty guests the good stuff!
With the events market booming and wedding season in full swing, there’s no better time to share our run down of the 10 hottest mobile bars to look out for this year. We’ve looked at all the key ingredients of a great mobile bar to hire, including: styling, originality, the story behind the bar, reviews, specialities and, of course, the quality of the drinks and service – after all, these beauties are built for a purpose!
1) Prosecco Pronto
Originating from Venice and wanting to bring a slice of Italy home – this cute little outfit epitomises the recent rise of the Prosecco van in the UK. Prosecco Pronto’s authentic Italian 3-wheeled Piaggio is the real deal and it certainly looks the part. The quality of the restoration and build is beautiful; your guests won’t be able to resist a snap alongside it! A family run business, Prosecco Pronto chooses to ‘supply the finest 100% glera frizzante, from Venezia to you with love’.
2) Flair ‘n’ Funk

With an impressive collection of ‘champion cocktail flairers’ serving a vast drinks menu, this outfit is designed to bring that energetic spark to any event.

3) Bubble Bros
Next in our collection of Mobile Bars, you’ll find The Bubble Bros. Dubbed ‘The world’s first motorbike and sidecar bar’ we think this duo has nailed creating something both genuinely original and deftly functional. This unique little bar is the creation of friends Ben and Joe, who, after hearing a thirsty festival goer complain about the lack of cold prosecco decided to leave behind their hectic London ad-agency lives in pursuit of delivering perfectly-chilled bubbly to events across the country. And, if you fancy a craft cocktail instead, make sure you check out their converted 1970s fire engine, The Spritz Blitz!
