The Traveling Spirit is a mobile bartending company. We launched with our remodeled 1959 cardinal caravan camper turned bar in 2018 and have expanded to now offer Bubble Bars! We provide full service bartending for any occasion such as weddings, birthday parties, corporate events, holiday parties and baby showers.
The Bubble Bar is a tap bar that's great for any occasion-- baby showers, engagement parties, corporate happy hours, poolside parties! The possibilities are endless. We can offer Beer, Prosecco, Rosé, and cocktails on tap. We can also offer any of our normal bartending packages from our bubble bars! We offer the bubble bar in natural wood or white with a variety of umbrella options!
Nope, due to Texas liquor laws we cannot carry a liquor license but that's okay! Once you decide on a finalized menu our team will supply you with an itemized shopping list for alcohol. The best part? You can purchase it at any store you want, saving you a ton of dough!
Well, on top of our beautiful vintage caravan or bubble bars, we can also provide everything needed for your perfect event bar! Depending on what package you choose our services include; your choice of drink ware, straws, napkins, ice, coolers, garnishes, homemade syrups, fresh squeezed juices, friendly experienced bartenders and personalized menu signage!
No. Unfortunately, as we do not have a liquor license, we cannot collect money in exchange for alcoholic beverages. Reach out if you are a nonprofit as we're happy to walk you through your options!
We are centrally located in Houston, TX but we love to travel! Travel within 30 miles of HTX is included in our packages. After that we charge $2/mile for each additional mile.
While we don't offer hot coffee or tea service we do have some great coffee cocktails on our cocktail menu! Is your event alcohol free? Let us create signature MOCKTAILS for your special occasion! These are a great option for dry brunch events, baby showers and school functions!
We require a 33% nonrefundable deposit to book your event. The final payment isn't due until 1-2 weeks before your event date and once that payment is made-- it cannot be refunded. While we do not refund payment-- they are fully transferable if postponed no later than 72 hrs before you event date.
Unfortunately, due to our advanced booking model, we cannot accommodate cancellations due to rain. In the event of rain, we are happy to work with your tent vendor to find the appropriate size tent for our mobile bar.
The camper dimensions are 12 ft long x 7 ft wide x 9 ft tall.
Our bar requires a flat ground and clear access for setup, service and breakdown. A space of about 10 feet wide x 14 feet long x 10 feet high plus more space for your guests to gather is needed during the event. We also require one standard outlets within 150ft of the camper but don’t fret if your event is located somewhere without electricity, we can add a generator to your package.
The earlier the better! Because "Betsy" our camper bar is one-of-a-kind, she books out Saturdays usually 6 months in advanced. Just remember March-May and September-December is the busy wedding/holiday seasons so those weekends book up first! Always reach out just incase we have an open weekend or cancellation!
We carry liquor liability and general liability insurance to cover our services. All bartenders are TABC certified and hold their food handlers permits. We do not carry a liquor license since we do not sell alcohol.
