Barkeep! UNO MAS!
Mobile bars have been around for quite a while. The likes of Liquid Chefs in the UK set the stage for affordable house parties for those with relatively limited budgets to make a night to remember. Now Barmobile, a Mumbai based Bartending Service offers the same in the nightlife capital of India. House parties are gathering repute and becoming increasingly common due to professional bartenders serving all sorts of drinks and cocktails one could ask for without the hassle of waiting outside the velvet rope or extravagant prices which makes one consider sobriety. ?Barmobile was started by me in 2012 May. I identified this portable bar which is our USP as we are the only ones in India to have that product. It is a full fledged mobile bar that sets out of a suit case with an inbuilt sink, bottle rack and a bar counter. So indeed, a full-fledged bar on wheels. We started rendering this service wherein we would send the portable bar with mixologists/ bartenders with an entire range of glassware and other peripherals such as stirrers, tissues, coasters and bar kits making it an end-to-end bartending solution.? replies the man behind it all when asked about his unique service. ?We do a lot of house parties which also include celebrity parties,? Gaurish adds proudly. All aspects of the party are customisable and he also ensures that the bartenders are well groomed & dress according to theme. The customers can choose the drinks and they should provide alcohol, mixers, garnishes, soft drinks & juices, all of which will be advised by the service during the pre-event consultation. Guarish is no stranger to the hospitality industry. He is the man behind Mumbai?s first wine bar-The Den. With a wine certification course from the Cape Wine Academy in Johannesburg and a Master of Mixology course from the New York Bartending School (USBG) one can rest knowing that their event will be major hit in their circle with his expertise. ?Most popular drinks demanded these days are Mojitos, Cosmopolitans and Sangrias and Shots. However we provide and suggest some out of the box concoctions which is our novelty factor.? He says. Barmobile is to spread its services to Pune, Nasik & Goa soon. Gaurish further plans to have mock tail bars and kiosks at malls and cinemas. Their clients include Red Chillies Entertainment, Jack and Jones, Vero Moda, Budweiser, Range Rover, Guess, Ashwin Gidwani Productions, Marccain and many more reputed organisations. What the future holds for Barmobile one can only imagine but they have certainly made themselves indispensable.
