Tell us a little bit about your stunning mobile bar, Young Vintage.
The General as we call him is a 1926 Chevrolet Delivery Truck, which we have lovingly restored and converted into a travelling bar. He has four gold beer taps, which can be hooked up to beer, cider, wine , soft drink, cocktails or what ever beverage you wish. ! We do also have a 4 nip dispenser which can have any spirits requested. The General him self is 90 yrs old and still runs like a charm, if you ask nicely we may even let you honk his claxton horn which really gets the party started. Aaaarrrrroooogggah!
What beverages do you have available?
We have some amazing suppliers who can source pretty much anything you wish! All you have to do is tell us what delicious beverages you will be wanting on your special day and our suppliers will be in contact with you. We will take care of the rest so you are relaxed and stress free … drink in hand on the big day!
What areas do you service?
We will travel anywhere from the Sunshine Coast to Byron Bay. But we will consider going further just ask!
What days is Young Vintage available for Weddings and events?
We are happy to say 24/7 365 days a year!
Do you have staff on hand throughout the entire event to serve guests?
We do have staff on site the whole event. We do trust you, however we need to keep topping up the ice in the cooling system and changing kegs because heaven forbid you would run out of dancing juice! We do set up The General as a self-serviced bar, so YES you can pour your own beer, which everyone loves! However we do offer to two RSA certified bar staff to man the bar for you.

- 4 Nip dispensers
- Ice cold cooling system (all ice is supplied by us)

How far in advance do couple need to look at booking Young Vintage?
We recommend you book at least 3-4 months before your event, as we wouldn’t want you to miss out. The earlier the better!
Do you have a favourite wedding story?
I know a beautiful couple who recently found out they were expecting their first bundle of joy. They had been hiding the secret for weeks, the bride even having “pretend vodka lime and soda” at her hens night. On there wedding day in the Grooms vowels he broke into tears telling all of his friends and family the exciting news of their new little addition to the family. There wasn’t a dry eye in the place and it made there magical day that much more special.
What do you think are the upcoming trends for 2016/2017 weddings?
I’m predicting the new trend of the Groomsmen having mismatched clothing. Plad pants and bow ties just like the old days …sooo dapper!
