If you’re planning an event, a drinks bar is an absolute must. No matter the occasion, you want to make sure that your guests have access to refreshments – even if you’re only providing alcohol-free options.

While many venues have their own built-in options, if you’re planning a marquee event or hosting in a location which doesn’t have the necessary set up, hiring a mobile bar is the perfect solution to make sure your event has everything you need to keep your guests recharged.

In this article, we’re taking a look at everything you need to know about hiring a mobile drinks bar for your party.

What is a mobile drinks bar?

A mobile drinks bar is essentially a portable bar that can be set up anywhere. It typically consists of a countertop, shelves and storage, with space for a fridge to keep drinks cool during warmer months. Mobile drinks bars are becoming increasingly popular for events and parties. They offer a unique way to serve drinks to guests, and can be tailored to fit any occasion, with a range of unique designs and styles to choose from.

What are the benefits of using a mobile drinks bar?

Mobile bars can be a great solution for any event where there are no fixed bars available. You can benefit from:

Customisable options

Your bar can be customised to fit in with your specific theme or colour scheme, including LED lit centrepiece bars or rustic, wooden bars.

Modular capabilities

Different styles of bars can be mixed together to create a unique and quirky design for your event, as well as more bar space for larger events.


Mobile bars are typically quite reasonable to rent out and can be especially useful for anyone planning a DIY wedding.

Increased convenience

Mobile bars are much more convenient than traditional bars, as they can be set up anywhere and moved around easily. This makes them ideal for events such as weddings, parties, and corporate events.

How much space do I need for a mobile bar?

How much space you need will depend on the size of your event and the number of guests attending, however most bars can fit snugly into the corner of a marquee or event space. Larger bars can also be used as a centrepiece for your party and most providers will be able to give you a range of options to suit your requirements.
