Our Story

The Problem

It all started one day, when a group of friends got together for a tailgate party before an event. While making cocktails for our fellow party goers, we quickly realized that the corrugated surface of our truck tailgate was not the optimum surface to be making drinks on. Cups were tipping, bottles were sliding and precious ounces of ice cold beer were being sacrificed on the hot surface of the tailgate. We thought to ourselves, “wouldn’t it be nice if we had a clean, flat, non-slip surface we could prepare multiple drinks at a time on and at the same time, eliminate mess on our tailgate?”

The Solution

A few drinks later... Why not make a compact, portable, modular bar system that can be easily packed and transported to any type of social gathering or showcased within any household. Included within the bar system, would be all the necessities of a traveling mixologist: 

  • Removable custom bar mat
  • 4 compartment stainless cocktail garnish tray
  • Bar caddy organizer
  • 100 cocktail napkins
  • 50 cocktail umbrellas
  • 50 cocktail picks
  • Wine/bottle opener
  • Challenge coin (great as a napkin weight)
  • Stainless cocktail stirrer

...and even an optional ice bin, ice scoop and cutting board.

This is how the BumperBar was born!
