Boutique Caravan Bar service creating unique experiences – perfect for weddings, birthdays, events and promotional activities. We are based in Wanaka but love to wander further afield, so we would love to hear from you no matter where your event is being held - that’s the beauty of being a mobile bar!


The Workroom Caravan is Central Otago’s first ever mobile BYO Caravan Bar. Our beautifully converted, sleek and stylish Caravan bar is perfect for weddings, birthdays, corporate gigs, stag do’s, hens parties, high teas and more...

If you are planning an event and want to add something a little special to the mix, then The Workroom Caravan Bar is just the thing. You simply dream up the location and your beverages of choice and we will arrive fully equipped ready to serve your guests and help you make your event a memorable one.

The Workroom Caravan Bar can come complete with glasses, buckets, bar tenders, and more (please let us know if you require us to provide these), so we are ready to keep your guests refreshed and ready to party at your wedding or event. We are BYO so you choose and supply the beverages you would like served and we will do the rest.

If you have an idea or vision for your event that isn’t mentioned here... just put it to us. We can make it happen, send us an email or give us a bell.
