The Wandering Well is currently booking our charming pop up mobile bar or vintage horse trailer bar, along with our passionate servers, and all the fixings to create delicious craft cocktails and unforgettable memories for weddings and other private events.

Our philosophy:

~ fresh ingredients ~ seasonally inspired ~ handcrafted ~ locally sourced ~ memorable ~ 

We love showcasing our enthusiasm for sharing life's notable moments with family and friends by creating and serving our seasonal, fresh, handcrafted cocktails for all types of celebrations!  We like to think of ourselves as "cocktail caterers" rather than traditional bartenders and we are truly passionate about our craft.  Our team is dedicated to helping you create unique memories at your special event, regardless of its size, style, or type. Our goal is to "wow" you and your guests with our style, product, service, and vision so that your event is even more memorable than it would be without our presence.

 The process:

In order to achieve our goal, we start by working closely with you to understand what type of experience you would like to offer your guests at your private event.  We build our cocktails around the seasons so that we can offer the freshest ingredients, but otherwise, the sky is the limit!  If your event has a theme (i.e. Cinco de Mayo) or you are partial to a certain type of alcohol, just let us know and we will help you select a cocktail menu that fits the bill.  If craft cocktails aren't your thing, but you just love our vintage horse trailer bar or wooden bar and can't live without it at your event, we are happy to serve "mocktails", beer, wine, and/or champagne instead.

Having fun in the test kitchen with some persimmons that were given to us by a local grower. We made a puree from them and added tequila, and lime for a seasonally inspired and delicious margarita. The fresh thyme garnish added a bit of extra delight for the senses!

Once you've booked us for your event, the fun really begins; the beverage selection!  Do you have visions of a Bloody Mary bar? Are your guests partial to tequila? How about a variety of fresh fruit mojitos?  Are you a fan of sparkling drinks (hello, prosecco/mimosa bar!). 

Please keep in mind that once the all important drink selections have been firmed up, you will still need to purchase the alcohol yourself since we don't have a liquor license (we do carry general liability and liquor liablity insurance).  Don't worry, our team will provide you with all the necessary information that you will need in order to obtain the proper amounts, types, and brands of alcohol for your event.  

Our friendly and certified servers will then combine your choices with a variety of seasonal syrups and/or cordials, bitters, tonics, ginger beer, fresh squeezed juices, herbs, garnishes, etc. to provide a spectacular craft cocktail experience for you and your guests from either our vintage horse trailer bar or our custom wood bar.

The day of the event:

Our team will arrive at your location in plenty of time to set up either our pop up mobile bar, or our horse trailer bar, or possibly even both depending on the size of the event!  We will also bring along anything else that was chosen from our available service options (i.e., personalized drink menu display, separate beer/wine serving area, etc.) and be ready to go at the agreed upon start time.  From the time that we arrive to the time that we leave, we will be completely dedicated to ensuring that you and your guests are having an amazing experience.  Afterwards, we will pack everything up, leaving behind only the memories of our time together.
