Boozy Vans

Boozy Vans


Posted 2023-01-01 by Carly Ogbornefollow
In 2023, the term 'booze bus' takes on a whole new meaning.

We don't pretend to have all the answers here at Weekend Notes, but there is one question that we can answer - why schlep all the way out to a bar when you can make the bar schlep to you?

The following boozy vans will give you the bar experience in the comfort of your own home.

True Spirit Bus

The True Spirit Bus is a 1974 Atlantean double-decker bus that was re-purposed as a travelling bar by the craftsman of the Brisbane Gin Distillery. The quirky mobile bar offers contains a downstairs section with booth seats, an upstairs platform with a pop-up roof, and a self-contained bar.

The True Spirit Bus slings gin every Sunday at the Riverside Markets in the City Botanic Gardens. Gin aficionados and newbies alike are encouraged to explore the spirit, with free tastings, sample paddles, and cocktails available.

The True Spirit bus is available for event hire and can be taken to any location. For more information, or to make a booking, email [email protected].

Lobster Social

Simple yet luxurious appears to be the brief from Lobster Social, who serve a single menu item from a sleek silver caravan.

Their core menu contains a lobster roll with fennel slaw and cumquat served on a caramelised brioche bun and a side serving of parmesan truffle fries. The drinks menu is also carefully curated - there's champagne, of course, as well as lager, lemon squash, and your choice of still or sparkling water.

Lobster Social is available to hire along the east coast of Australia. Enquiries can be made by calling 1300 LOBSTER or emailing [email protected].

Margarita Margarita

Meet Stanley, a vintage 1972 Commer Highwayman Van and mobile margarita bar.

Margarita Margarita - the bar so nice they named it twice - is an event hire company that serves up margaritas made from fresh fruit quality ingredients. Their private event package is all exclusive and provides an unlimited number of margaritas for the duration of the booking.

Stanley is available for events in South East Queensland and Northern New South Wales. You can make an enquiry through their website .

Caravan Bar

Is the term 'BYO bar' an oxymoron? While the previous entries on this list have focused on a particular type of alcohol - gin, champagne, margaritas - Caravan Bar doesn't actually provide any. Instead, they provide a chic caravan bar and service staff while you, the party host, provide the booze.

The company that runs Caravan Bar can also provide additional extras to your function, such as giant lawn games, sweet treats, and espresso.

To make a booking, call 07 3901 5733 or email [email protected].
