Hi there! Welcome to Gathering Events...
Press play! Watch our video and get to know us!
We are Jen & Adam, the owners and husband and wife team behind Gathering Events. Gathering Events is a mobile boutique bar and coffee service, creating memorable events - with their crew of super talented (and charming) bartenders and baristas.
Behind the scenes, we love road trips, working together, our two airedale terriers (Boswell & Chloe), renovating our home and meeting so many clients that become life-long friends.
Our #1 priority has always been creating old fashioned good-times, with a fun and fresh twist.
Based in Brisbane, we travel far and wide, offering our complete mobile bar service for events of all types and styles, including Ipswich, Gold Coast, Sunshine Coast, Noosa, Byron Bay and Toowoomba.
We are often asked about how our business started?
Jen: "In 2013, Adam and I secretly organised our own ‘surprise wedding’. After undergoing stealth planning for 8 months, we realised that all of the ‘out-of-the-box’ venues and spaced we wanted to celebrate didn’t have the infrastructure or facilities to host a bar or guests (one of our most important features.
Adam: "After intense venue searching, we hired a beautiful little art gallery in Brisbane. For the bar however, we ended up setting up a trestle table, buying cheap glassware and hired friends of friend to serve. Suffice to say - we realised there must be a much better way."
Jen: With over 10 years of working in event roles through Brisbane and internationally, I really wanted to create and breath a brand I whole-heatedly believed in, that created real experiences."
Adam: I really have a varied background, being a carpenter turned accountant, I was able to build all of our bars. I am stoked to be able to combine all of my passions into the business"
From here, it really got us thinking, and after lots of day dreaming and sketching, we came up with our bar concept. We wanted to create a beautiful, yet practical bar experience that could pop up anywhere, at anytime.
We now get so excited when we get hired to service and activate the most unlikely of spaces such as car parks, warehouses, rural fields and parks.
Now, we can help couples and clients set up a bar with experienced bar tenders, beautiful glassware, and all the equipment they could dream of – no more running to Dan Murphy's for extra ice or forgetting bottle openers - and NO MORE trestle tables.
