Harbour & Coupe

Harbour& Coupe are made up of Sam and Charlotte, a brother and sister duo with a collection of beautiful bars, and incredible cocktails.

When Sam and Charlotte first started their company, their dream was to provide cocktails from an old, converted Piano Bar. They thought this was unique, special, and offered people something different for their wedding or event.

Move forward to present day, and their dream has extended beyond what they thought possible, and they now offer a collection of handcrafted bars, all with an exclusive concept and inviting story. ​

Sam and Charlotte are a lovely, welcoming pair, who consider themselves to be "yes people," and always do their best to make their customers notion come to life, no matter how wild their idea might be!​

Read on to find out more about these lovely two, via an in-depth q and a with Charlotte. Over to you Charlotte:

Hello to you both, we absolutely love the concept behind your brand (and cocktails!) For those that don’t know who you are, tell us a little about you and what you do:
We're a mobile bar service based in Yorkshire. We're 100% "yes" people, no matter how wild the idea or the event, we will do everything we can to make it work. From hen parties to birthday brunches and elegant weddings - we can do it all.

Fabulous, sounds wonderful! In a nutshell, tell us why a couple should choose to have a mobile bar hire?
With a mobile bar you often get a wider choice of drinks and products compared to a bar at a venue. We can work with venues to do a simple cocktail/G&T/Spritz bar offer, or if your venue doesn't have a bar at all we can host the whole bar for you!

How do you stay unique and what makes you stand out from all the other cocktail bar companies?
We go above and beyond for our guests. Whether it's personalised cocktail toppers, bar menus to match your decor and invites or switching up our garnishes - we want our bar and drinks to be as cohesive as possible with your theme.

It’s cocktail hour in our heads (and it’s only 12!) Please tell our lovely couples, what your signature cocktail is?
We absolutely love the Passion of Seville - it's made with Libations Rum (made in Yorkshire!) and is always a total crowd pleaser.

What drink is most asked for at weddings?
A Pornstar Martini for sure! They're still super popular and are delicious at a summer wedding.

Do you do every type of drink?
If our guests request something that isn't on our menu, we can make it work for sure!

Excellent! Which is the most popular bar?
Our most popular bar is The Kensington, which is undergoing a little makeover to make it even more versatile and give us more room for service.
Keep an eye out on our social media for a little sneak peek over the coming weeks! (@harbourandcoupe)

How many guests do you cater for?
How many guests do you have?! The more the merrier but we also love an intimate wedding!

How long do you stay at the event?
Some suppliers have a set finish time, but not us! We keep the party going for as long as you're all still dancing an enjoying yourselves! We do require some time to close after the event so please bear that in mind when booking us for a venue as they sometimes have restrictions.

How does payment work?
We have a huge range of payment plans. You can either pay for the full bar yourselves, part pay and have your guests pay for their own drinks or buy one of our cocktail packages and then your guests can solve the rest. We will discuss this at your free consultation call so be sure to have an idea of what you'd like to do!

Why do you love what you do?
Seeing people’s faces when they have the first sip of a drink at an event or wedding makes us so happy. Reading the feedback from our couples and how we made the night and kept the party going, is the reason we do what we do!

Please offer 3 tips for couples getting married (these can be anything)
· Don't leave booking your bar until the last minute. Most suppliers are still catching up after Covid-19 postponements and may be fully booked for the date you require!
· Don't be afraid to implement some drinking rules for your bar and guests. For example, no shots until 9pm, Espresso Martini hour etc. This will help you manage your budget and not have the bar drank dry by 11pm!
· Have fun! Personalised cocktail toppers are a great addition to your drinks. Sneak off and grab a few photos with your fave cocktails. Drink the Prosecco from the bottle. Just do whatever makes you laugh!

And for fun, a bit about you Charlotte…

Coffee or tea? Milk in first or last?
Coffee, always! Leave the milk, just give us all the caffeine please!

What's something that recently made you smile?
Getting a sneak peek into one of our couples Pinterest boards. Wow!!
