VW camper van DJ discoWe have always had a soft spot for our Discobug, just because it’s so unbelievably cool. So we were thrilled to be asked to DJ at the London Para-Athletic Championships in July! We knew we needed to up our game for such a high profile public event… so we decided a little makeover was on the cards…


The Discobug VW camper DJ booth has so many funky features: disco balls, LED lighting, state-of-the-art sound system. It’s also painted brilliant white with glitter sparkles for an extra glow. I know, right, isn’t fab!

IMG_6674But for the Para Athletic Championships, we decided to pimp the Discobug to take it to another level – with the official championships logo wrapped around the van. Looks great doesn’t it! You can brand the Discobug for your corporate event too. As the colour scheme is monochrome, its easy to brand – any logo works. Just supply the artwork and we’ll do the rest. If you’re interested in hiring the Discobug for your event, branded or in its cool original colour, just click here…. BRING IT ON!

“We have used the Bugbar for three years in a row for our company’s summer camping parties. Not only do they provide us with the most delicious cocktails but their teams are always great fun to have along….nothing is ever to much for Justin and his team. Each year is a roaring success and I look forward to using them again for Summer 2018.” (Sam, Knickerbocker TV)

20031885_1536013909806255_1532625751816534105_nIn July, our Duke Bugbar travelled to Oxfordshire to party with the Knickerbocker TV crew! This corporate event was held at Moulsford Preparatory School, which provided a beautiful backdrop to the party throughout the day and into the evening. Versatile and easy to place anywhere and everywhere, the Duke pitched up at the top of the hill, allowing us to admire the grounds; even the River Thames. Elderflower Fizz was the clear favourite cocktail, as everyone kept coming back for more. It may have been a corporate event, but the vibe was so relaxed and the guests so friendly, it felt like we were at a family party!

The food provided was delicious – from the caterers extraordinaire, Cordi Hospitality Events – and as the evening began, “The Human Jukebox” provided the music – a fantastic brass band playing modern pop tunes. What with the great food, great music and Bugbar cocktails, the crowd were soon in the mood!

Not only did we provide the drinks, but we provided the disco too. Our state-of-the-art sound system and DJ equipment kept the party going into the evening. Take a look at the cool set up in the pic:

The Duke made its way up to Maidstone for a night at the pictures for the Alfresco Cinema! It was a beautiful sunny afternoon and the Bugbar cocktails got everyone in the mood for the main event: Dirty Dancing.

Fans of the 80s classic movie filled up the area with their blankets and deck chairs, and a queue had formed for our cocktails before we had even finished setting up.

The ever-popular Elderflower Fizz was the most popular, with many coming back for more as the sun went down and the movie started. Sun, Patrick Swayze and ice cold cocktails – perfect.

Thank you Alfresco Cinema! We had the time of our lives…

Bugbar head honcho Justin has introduced two new team members to the Bugbar team – Grace Keppel and Tess Horner. Both interns are studying at the University of Sussex and are very keen to get involved and learn social media marketing. Their internship is designed to help the Bugbar generate more online ‘noise’, grow their online presence and build a bigger social following – and that’s exactly what they’ve done already!


Welcome Grace and Tess – let’s work hard, play hard and make some Bugbar memories!
