Festival-Style Mobile Bar

Hugely exciting but tiny in stature, a little Piaggio Ape mobile bar is joining an Italian-style hospitality business that has great food and good times at its heart

An iconic Italian Piaggio Ape is the latest addition to Bowbearers Pizza and Mobile Bar business. They recently took delivery of the little three-wheeler and named the mobile bar ‘The Mini Buck’, which is set to take partying and private entertaining to a whole new level.

The people behind Bowbearers are brother and sister duo Roland Parker and Eleanor Thorpe, who says: “Our little Piaggio attracts lots of attention. It’s such good fun and really puts a smile on your face! We absolutely love it and hope to share the joy with everyone else too.”

Loving everything Italian, Roland and Eleanor run their hospitality business from the family home on the historic Browsholme Hall estate, which holds weddings along with corporate and private events in the beautiful, stone-built Tithe Barn.

Their pizzas, cooked in a traditional wood-fired oven at the Tithe Barn, have become legendary so complementing this with an Italian mobile drinks bar was a natural next-step.

The Bowbearers Mini Buck can be hired for any event either for weddings at Browsholme or for a private party, a function or event at a venue of your choice.

If you fancy a summer celebration in your garden? No problem! As long as you are located within 40 miles, you can get the party started with this mini-bar, which will definitely be the star of the show – it’s a guaranteed crowd pleaser!

There are various hire options to choose from, as Eleanor explains: “You can stock the bar yourself and we provide the staff to serve, or we can stock the bar with bottles, kegs, fizz and wine from our boutique vineyard supplier in Italy, which really fits well with what we are doing.

“You can also mix and match – there are a few packages to choose from including a hospitality package and a pay-as-you-go option. But, if you want something different, we’re really flexible – just let us know and we’ll see what we can do.”

The Mini Buck, which can be decorated in bunting and lighting, can be transported to your venue of choice on the back of a trailer and disembarked to park in a suitable space – there is a minimum space-size required to stretch its doors and for people to circulate. Ideally, power will be available plus if it’s a private function and a licence is needed, Bowbearers will help with that too – just make sure you book the Mini Buck in plenty of time!
