THE PERFECT POP-UP BAR

WEDDINGS
FESTIVALS
PRIVATE FUNCTIONS
CORPORATE EVENTS
Based in Brighton, the Bugbar is the perfect addition to any wedding, festival, private party or corporate event. We provide a fully licensed bar with expertly mixed cocktails, beers and wine, or non-alcoholic options including smoothies or coffee – all served by our experienced and super friendly staff.

There are 4 hire options to suit your needs:

  • Complimentary bar: we supply the drinks to you at a discounted rate or you supply the stock, and our staff mix and serve the drinks to your guests.
  • Bar tab: you put a set amount behind the bar, and when that amount is reached, your guests pay for further drinks.
  • Pay bar: guests pay for all their own drinks; we set a bar target, and when it’s reached, you only pay a basic set up price (prices start from £125).
  • Dry hire: we supply just the Bugbar itself and you provide the stock and staff.

All our drinks are priced below what you would expect to pay in a bar. We prefer to operate within a 100 mile radius of Brighton; there is no delivery charge for the first 30 miles, after which it is calculated at 50p per mile.

MEET THE FAMILY

The Bugbars draw on the classic VW camper van, but because they’re replica lightweight trailers, they’re perfectly clean, safe and purpose built for every event, inside or out.

The Bugbar adventure began with one Bug back in 2012, but the family has grown over the years and now includes 5 classic Bugbars and one unique Discobug DJ booth.

Although they’re based on the same design, each Bug has its own special character and colour scheme – you can choose your favourite (subject to availability) or we can recommend one to suit your event.
