Vintage is in! These days, companies and consumers alike are straddling the popular quirky vintage vibe with a modern, sleek aesthetic. For those finding themselves in this predicament when it comes to planning events, a food & beverage service on wheels may be the perfect solution.

With an event of almost any kind, food and drinks play an integral role. So much so that many mobile food stations become the central gathering point at any event they service. For the Bubble Brothers Prosecco Van and Get Cozy Vintage Mobile Bars, their authentic and memorable experiences have brought people together to interact with one other, all over food and drinks on wheels.

The mobile design, function, and service is perfect for an event as small as a few dozen to festivals of thousands. The Bubble Brothers have been utilizing a 2002 Piaggio Ape Prosecco van since they brought their UK-based business to New York in early 2019, while Get Cozy has acquired an array of one-of-a-kind vintage vehicles, from 1950s caravan campers to Piaggio Ape mini trucks, since their founding in 2015. On the outside, each vehicle is beautifully designed to perfectly balance feelings of class and coziness. Inside, Bubble Brothers has sparkling wine and spritz cocktails on tap, all served by a personable bartender. Get Cozy designs the vehicle’s inner contents based on the client’s wishes and nature of the event, but in the past have provided everything from alcoholic drinks, coffee, and kombucha to cotton candy and s’mores.

For planners looking to incorporate a mobile bar into their event, if you can dream it, these mobile bars can make it happen.

With the events industry at a near standstill, Jess Doren realized this may have been the moment she’d been waiting for. Having produced large-scale events for big brands like Apple and Buzzfeed, she’d had little time in the past to develop events of her own, but this past summer, she and a team of fellow event pros set out to gather a community craving connection.

 

Unprecedented times call for strategic measures. With so many planners wondering how best to plan for the event-specific challenges posed by COVID- 19, industry leaders and top associations have stepped up to offer a road map with trainings on everything from cleaning protocols to new contract clauses.
