WHAT IS THE TRAVELING SPIRIT?

The traveling spirit is a mobile bar made from a remodeled 1959 cardinal caravan camper. We provide full service bartending for any occasion such as weddings, birthday parties, corporate events, holiday parties and baby showers. We also rent our camper out for “DRY” events where no bartending services are required such as dessert bars, photo shoots or pop-up shops.

WHAT IS THE BUBBLE BAR?

The Bubble Bar is a single draft tap system bar that's great for any occasion-- baby showers, engagement parties, corporate happy hours, poolside parties!  The possibilities are endless.  We hook up a keg of Prosecco, bring a bubble bar attendant, Tossware flutes, mixers and garnishes and pour away!

DO YOU SUPPLY THE ALCOHOL?

The state of Texas does not allow a liquor license without a“brick and mortar “establishment. So, unfortunately, we cannot provide the booze. We can however work very closely with you to custom create your perfect drink menu and then ensure that you are only buying the type and amount of alcohol needed for each individual event. From there you can either choose your own vendor or, alternatively, we can call the order into our preferred vendor. Either way, you’re only paying retail for all alcohol with no additional markup. We work hard to keep the process as easy and as seamless as possible!

WHAT DO YOU PROVIDE…?

Well, on top of our beautiful vintage caravan, we can also provide everything needed for your perfect bar. Depending on what package you choose our services include; your choice of plasticware or glassware, straws, ice, garnishes, homemade syrups, fresh squeezed juices, mixers, friendly experienced bartenders and personalized menu signage. We also work with a vintage rental company and florist/ balloon artist to create custom décor for your special occasion.

CAN YOU HOST A CASH BAR?

No. Unfortunately, as we do not have a liquor license, we cannot collect money in exchange for alcoholic beverages.

WHERE ARE YOU LOCATED AND WILL YOU TRAVEL?

We are centrally located in Houston, TX but we love to travel! Travel within 30 miles of Houston, TX carries no additional charge. Outside of this area a travel fee will be added to quotes.

CAN YOU SERVE COFFEE/TEA/MOCKTAILS?

Yes! We love coffee, tea, and mocktails too! We serve locally sourced coffee and tea, delicious hot chocolate, and use fresh and seasonal ingredients for our mocktails. We would love to follow up your cocktail hour with a coffee hour! Don’t drink cocktails? Let us create signature MOCKTAILS for your special occasion! These are a great option for dry brunch events, baby showers and coffee/dessert functions. Ask about our coffee/tea/mocktail packages when you book!

WHAT IS YOUR PAYMENT AND REFUND POLICY?

We require a $500 non-refundable deposit and a signed contract for all camper bar events and a $150 non-refundable deposit for all bubble bar events.  The remainder of the balance will be one month from event date.   

DO YOU HAVE A RAIN DATE POLICY?

Unfortunately, due to our advanced booking model, we cannot accommodate rain dates. In the event of rain, we are happy to work with your tent vendor to find the appropriate size tent for our mobile bar.

WHAT ARE THE TECHNICAL REQUIREMENTS FOR THE BAR?

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.

HOW FAR IN ADVANCE DO WE NEED TO BOOK?

The earlier the better!  Larger events and weddings are usually booked around a year in advance.  Just remember March-May and September-December is the busy wedding/holiday seasons so those weekends book up first!

ARE YOU INSURED AND PERMITTED?

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 have a liquor license since we do not sell alcohol.
