Vendor Spotlight: Borrowed Bar

Vendor Spotlight: Borrowed Bar

Today’s vendor spotlight is on Borrowed Bar in Madison! Borrowed Bar is owned by Adam and Marla Bergh, a husband and wife team that fired up their business in the Summer of 2017 with a soft launch at an anniversary party for Revel – Madison’s hip new DIY craft bar destination downtown. Borrowed Bar plans to officially launch by end of Fall 2017 with a website and social presence coupled with promotions and contest for rentals. Just in time for brides to book for their 2018 weddings and all the Holiday and New Year parties being planned!

Borrowed Bar rents pre-made and custom tap walls for events. The tap walls allow for a self serve bar where you can provide anything from champagne, wine, beer, coffee, kombucha, soda, and more – all on draft, from a keg! Borrowed Bar staff provides the customized tap wall rental plus the tapworks and gas to move the beverage from its keg behind the wall, to your glass! Owner Marla states that “having beverages on tap at your party is an amazing option and the fun customizations you can apply to your wall are endless. The tap wall is a centerpiece and definitely takes your event to the next level.”

Check out some of of these CBE parties that Borrowed Bar has done as well as a few other parties they have served! This Packer tap wall was perfect for our game day event and cheering on our favorite team (GO PACK GO!) while enjoying some delicious drinks. We also loved how our Old Fashioned tap wall turned out for our Camp Wed retreat featuring calligraphy by Saffron Avenue and was a huge success with our guests!

Cocktail Trailers

The most impressive way to serve cocktails! This new, hip option is a sure way to add a little extra jazz to your wedding to make it stand out from the rest. Imagine serving his and hers signature drinks out of something this snazzy! With rental companies popping up in hot spot locations, these trailers are becoming easier to come by. Even better—if you or a friend owns a trailer it could become a fun DIY project. If you aren’t a DIY-er no problem! Barmadillo in Madison is one of our favorite beverage options for any event!

These adorable trucks and trailers are a great way to add style to your outdoor reception. Whether you’re going for a retro vibe, or rustic charm, you can find these trailers in all shapes and sizes. Try adding a custom sign to the outside to add a personal touch, or string the perfect set of lights to create an ambiance that will keep your friends and family dancing all night!

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Grand Exits: The Recessional (part 1 of 2)

This wedding tradition is a fun way to involve your friends and family in the ceremony! Tossing rice after a wedding ceremony dates back to Roman times. Rice symbolized both fertility and prosperity, and tossing it at couples implied best wishes and good luck—for newborns, good harvests, and everything in between! Here are a few fun alternatives to the rice toss that you can incorporate into your wedding day!
