Car Showroom Events

We've been incredibly lucky to work with some of the world's biggest car manufacturers, providing them with a slick and polished bar service to fit in with their brand. Below are some of our favourites:


1. Ford Mustang European Launch, 2015


The ultimate muscle car, an American institution, the car every teenager, adult, and senior wanted ever since it's creation in 1964.

It took until 2015 for the car to have it's official European launch, and we were lucky to be invited along to mix up some great drinks for VIP guests and the Press, hosted within two impressive domes, close to the Bavarian Forest in southern Germany.



Our bar was backed with an impressive neon, flanked by a stripped down V8 engine, multiple Mustang cars from different eras, memorabilia, and even a Mustang pool table!



2. Lamborghini Pangbourne Showroom Re-opening, 2019


Ever since I was a kid, and first seeing a Lamborghini Murciélago in Brighton, I've loved these cars. It's impossible to think luxury supercar and not list off the incredible models that Lamborghini have produced; the Countach, Diablo, Huracan, Aventador, the list is truly endless! I have even driven a few myself...

So when the team at Lamborghini Pangbourne got in touch, I jumped at the opportunity to get up close and personal with both the cars and the company.



We installed one of our 5m Portabars complete with the Lamborghini Bull logo, all glassware, drinks, ice and staffing for the event.



As with the cars, the drinks had to ooze both class and the Italian flag. Guests arrived to a Prosecco reception, with bottles of Peroni and San Pellegrino on offer, alongside a cocktail menu of Aperol Spritz, Espresso Martini, and Negroni.



3. Lincoln Audi 'Green' Event, 2016


Following an eight-month redevelopment programme, the showroom at Lincoln Audi has been transformed into an enlarged energy efficient dealership. Energy usage is carefully monitored with the latest building management control systems, and solar panels cover virtually the entire roof, with surplus energy being pumped back into the national grid. All of this is certainly something worth celebrating!


Calls were made, cocktails were decided upon, musicians were booked and we made our way across the country to get involved.


We put in place an octagonal bar, complete with wrap-around Audi branding, a team of awesome bartenders, plus all the drinks for 300 guests.




4. Aston Martin, Valhalla launch 2022


The ultimate in British luxury car brand, Aston Martin has a history as rich as it's leather interiors; for over 100 years, this brand has produced nothing short of amazing grand touring cars, with cars such as the V8 Vantage and the DB5 being chosen for the James Bond franchise since 1964 (I even own a Lego version of the model used in Goldfinger).



The Valhalla is their latest hybrid supercar, utilising an AMG 4 litre twin turbo V8 and a pair of electric motors to offer over 1000hp, providing a swift 0-60 in 2.5 seconds. We were invited to the Bristol launch, labelled as 'Valhalla by Candlelight', and as such we had the opportunity to create cocktails to match.



Being British, we looked towards Hereford and at the Chase distillery for their delicious aged marmalade vodka, mixing this with orange bitters, fresh lime, and English ginger beer, finished with a heat-branded zest of orange peel. We also offered a rum punch, finished with a flamed ball of overproof rum to replicate the fire spit of a supercar exhaust.

5. Lamborghini Manchester, Showroom launch 2022


Once we've looked after one showroom launch for Lamborghini, it doesn't take long for us to be invited to another one! This time we ventured north to Stockport, to prepare a drinks menu and service for 200 customers and fans of the brand.



Our bartenders agreed that the star of the show was certainly the Countach LPI-800, a mid-engine hybrid-electric, using the legacy of it's predecessor, the original Countach released fifty years prior.




Our bar team installed a custom branded mobile bar unit, and served an Italian menu of Malfy G&Ts, Aperol Spritz's, and Espresso Martinis, complete with branded garnishes.
