POP UP BARS
VENUES WE LOVE
Gathering Events is a boutique caravan bar and pop up bars service with a passion for creating memorable and larger than life experiences! We are based in Brisbane and service Sunshine Coast through to Byron Bay. Our #1 priority creating old fashioned good-times, with a fun and fresh twist.
Behind the scenes we are a husband and wife team, accompanied by our crew of super talented and fun bar tender professionals.
We travel far and wide to celebrations of all types to offer a complete pop-up bar service, from Brisbane to the Gold Coast, Sunshine Coast, Noosa, Byron Bay and Toowoomba.
[Jenny] After 10 years of working in event roles through Brisbane and overseas, I really wanted to create and work for a business that I whole-heatedly believed in, that created real and memorable moments. It is so exciting working for yourself, when you can wake up and make high impact decisions instantly, without going through the paperwork and meetings.
[Adam] I have really varied background, being a carpenter turned accountant, having recently graduating from an accounting degree in 2014. In the past 6 months I have moved into the business full time, and now I can combine both of my passions.
Back in 2013, Adam and I secretly organised our own ‘surprise wedding’. After undergoing stealth planning for 8 months, we realised that all of the ‘out-of-the-box’ places we wanted to celebrate didn’t have the infrastructure or facilities to host 100 guests.
After some intense venue searching, we hired a little art gallery in Brisbane which was great. For the bar however, we ended up setting up a trestle table with Ikea glassware and hiring a friend of a friend to serve the wine.
From here, it really got us thinking, and after lots of day dreaming and sketching, we came up with our caravan bar concept. We wanted to create a beautiful, yet practical bar experience that could pop up anywhere, at anytime. We now get so excited when we get hired to service and activate the most unlikely of spaces such as car parks, warehouses, rural fields and parks. Now, we can help couples like us set up a bar with experienced bar tenders, crystal glassware, and all the equipment they could dream of – now more running to Dan Murphies for extra ice or forgetting bottle openers.
We welcome all contact, collaborations and love coffee, so we hope to meet you soon!
