Let this wedding professional know you found them on Boston magazine’s Find It Boston.

About

Hive has pioneered the Mobile Bar Service industry since 2012. We first converted our 32' Airstream into a mobile bar/lounge where guests can enjoy a high quality custom bar that is delivered to their setting. Over the years we have converted a second airstream which is 25' long as well as a 1964 Chevy Truck into a high end Cocktail Tap truck. Our goal is to offer the highest quality service and attention to detail for our guests, customizing a one of a kind experience for them. Not only through our cocktail bar program but their entire event. Hive also offer complete Clamping tents for outdoor stays. If you choose not to Glamp then our 10'x12' canvas tents can be converted to many different venues, such as lounges, bars, photo booths, or whatever you can imagine.

Hive is a complete full bar service, specializing in designing unique bar menus, and cocktails for your Event. We offer our one of a kind mobile Airstream Bar trailers or Cocktail Tap Truck.

What's your background, education and training?

I have had a career in the hospitality industry since a kid. I also have had a passion for art and travel which brought me into the wine industry which spanned over 15 plus years. I educate and share the passion for wine and cocktails. I also work as a carpenter which helped when my Friend Graham and I converted our airstream trailers into mobile bars, which is now the business of Hive.

What is your typical process for working with a new client?

First get to know their interest and what they are trying to achieve. I try to sit and discuss the goals they have for their events, as well as their ultimate vision. Then we start to customize a look and style to their beverage service, from colors, styles and taste for them and their guests. We try our very best to give each client a one of a kind unique experience, that is not copied. Everyone wants to be one of a kind, and that is what we strive for. So not only do we design a beverage program for their event, but go as far as they need designing their event from start to finish if they need.

What advice would you give a client looking to find a provider in your specialty?

Find someone you can trust and has experience. Someone looking out for your needs from quality, service, and attention to detail. In addition someone insured and licensed to work supplying alcohol to your guests.

What inspired your passion for your profession?

My true passion is wine. I love the diversity of it all. So many styles and options. I love the emotion in wine as well, how you can remember a glass of wine depending on you mood or setting. It is a living breathing beverage. From there I love the craft of cocktail programs and how creative they can be. A part from that I have always loved art and designing things and always wanted to work on my own business since I was a kid, So from there I thought of a mobile bar in 2010 and a friend of mine and I built Hive. It had all the aspects I wanted, a bar, travel, design, and my own business idea I could offer to the population.

What services are you most excited to offer?

Most excited to offer the diversity of services, I love the idea we can offer a complete event to our clients from our bars to our tents a complete outdoor or indoor experience.

What is the best reaction you’ve ever received from a client?

There are so many. I absolutely love when a client comes in and sees their event or name on the back bar chalk board. We customize it to every client and event, giving them a special piece of artwork to remember and take photos of. I remember a bride breaking down in tears when she saw her name and customized art behind the bar.

What makes your business stand apart?

I truly feel we stand apart not only from the one of a kind design and uniqueness of or vehicles, but the attention to detail and level of quality we offer our clients.

What should customers know about your pricing?

We are a premium bar service because of the vehicles and customization we offer. It may not suit everyones budget, but we will give you the best quality service around. No question

How many years have you been in business?

Hive has been in the business going on 8 years, but I have been in the hospitality, beverage business for 20 + years

What do clients have to say about you?

Hive Events is one of the best concepts to come along, especially in relation to events here at the Larz Anderson Auto Museum.
Their Airstream Bar and Lounge is such a fabulous addition to any event. We have been fortunate to have them here for several weddings and corporate and private events, whether on our Lawn for a large tented event or just outside our Main Entrance. Clients love them! And we do, too!
Their custom cocktails are fabulously creative and their staff is so professional and wonderful to work with.
Anyone who is looking for something extra special to add to their event can’t go wrong with Hive.

n 2015, my husband and I were researching unique bar services that had a high level of both creativity and customer service for our Halloween wedding and found the amazing Hive Events. We described to the Hive team our style and tastes in drinks and they put together fabulous short list of options that were amazingly unique and personalized to us as a couple and as individuals. The night of our reception their air stream and team was spot on in handling the drinks, our rowdy family, and adding to the holiday atmosphere in fun costumes and smiles on their faces. 

After the wedding, we started our own furniture rental business and have collaborated with Hive Events on several occasions. Whether it's their fun tents, creative drinks, or swanky airstream - they are sure to impress for your next event!

"Hive Events has become a fixture of the Coolidge Corner Arts Festival for the past 5 years. Beyond their unique style and offerings they are equally wonderful to work with. Hosting a one day open air Wine and Beer Garden on public property requires great coordination with organizers and the licensing authorities. At every step Hive as made the process smooth and professional.
I wouldn't hesitate to recommend them to any organization or private party looking to offer visitors and guests a wonderful and unique experience. - Lea Cohen, organizer, Coolidge Corner Arts Festival
