Company History

This incredibly chic, three-wheeled Italian Piaggio Ape (pronounced "ah-peh" - Italian for bee) is ready to pour your guests perfectly chilled brews and bubbles, complete with a romantic Vespa vibe.

The bars can pull up to any wedding (or engagement party, bridal shower, bachelorette, anniversary, graduation, BBQ, corporate event—any party, really) and dispense perfectly chilled, ready-to-drink glasses of Prosecco, rosé, beer, white wine, kegged cocktails (as well as non-alcoholic options such as sparkling water, lemonade, etc.) from the available taps. Choose from an extensive list of beverage offerings (or supply your own). The compact size of the vehicles allows chilled glasses of Prosecco and beer to be served in a variety of locations. So, no matter your venue, there’s a spot for The Roving Bar.

The Roving Bar was originally founded in 2018 in New Jersey by Matt and Jen Woolston. Matt and Jen are two incredible people and have created such a lovely and fun business that I really wanted to be apart of. I had confronted Matt and Jen in late 2020 and they had mentioned to me how they always wanted a bar on Long Island since it is such a hotspot for weddings and events. Matt and Jen saw my passion and vision for this business and wanted me to join their crew and expand to Long Island. The Roving Bar Long Island was established in 2021 and looks to continue the success story and love for the industry just as Matt and Jen continue to do.

The Roving Bar is the perfect addition to any event if you want to add a little bit of class! We recently had it set up prior to our wedding ceremony and then during cocktail hour and our guests went crazy! We were able to order prosecco straight from them ( which was delicious) and then purchased to Local Beers to add a little bit of personal touch. If you want to WOW your guests, i highly recommend the roving bar at your net event.

Roving bar was awesome!! We had the Aster, and it was such a unique and fun way to welcome guests to our reception after driving over from the church. Everyone loved the bar, and wanted to take pictures with it! The attendant was very professional, they showed up early and took care of everything we needed. Would definitely recommend!

We had the Roving Bar at my house after my shower and it was such a hit! We had such a great experience and it was such a highlight of our day! We had it set up in our driveway and it was a perfect way for everyone to socialize and hang out. I HIGHLY recommend it! There is a humidor for cigars and you can get kegs of beer, wine, or Prosecco! We did beer and it was amazing!

The experience was above and beyond my expectations! All of my guests absolutely loved it and continually mentioned how cool & unique it was to have the mobile bartending truck. Eric was friendly, reliable and made sure everyone always had a full glass. Can’t wait to hire him again for our next event!
