In 2015, Dartford, Kent saw its very own slice of Bavaria come to Amar Hall through Dartford Oktoberfest. The night saw over 80 guests fill the venue to enjoy Bavarian bratwurst, steins of German beer and live Oompah music.

So much was the popularity of Dartford Oktoberfest 2016 that the organisrs, Amar Hall, are putting on another show for 2016! Located in the same venue, each aspect of the event has been ramped up – from more styles of beer to a larger Oompah band and more bratwurst!

The beer on offer will be of traditional German fair at Dartford Oktoberfest 2016. Lowenbrau and Becks will be the two lagers on offer with the former being one of the special few breweries serving up their beers at the full scale Munich festival! For those whose favourite tipple is not lager, Erdinger Weissbier will also be on the pumps. A refreshing wheat beer style, the flavours of banana, clove and bubblegum will keep you going back for more!

The Bavarian bash will be providing live Oompah music for the second year in a row. The event will not play host to a larger band with 5 members playing a range of traditional German songs as well as English songs with a Bavarian twist. A range of German instruments will be played throughout the evening.

Similarly to last year’s event, Dartford Oktoberfest 2016 will have two ticket types – entry and all inclusive. The former will allow you entry into the event where a full cash bar is available. The latter will provide you entry, a bratwurst and unlimited steins of the German beers on tap! Additional bratwurst and a full cash bar will be available for purchase.

GQ celebrated the Men of the Year Awards 2016 at Tate Modern London on Tuesday night. The event, which chooses one winner from a range of categories including Best Sportsman and Breakthrough Artist, was attended by the elites of the UK and international limelight.

The stars were treated to a lavish display of entertainment and food throughout the evening and were served fresh Patron Tequila cocktails. Bexley based business Mobile Bar Hire were contacted to provide a branded Patron bar for the cocktails to be served from. The counter, which was a centre point throughout the GQ event, was set to one end of the Tate Modern venue.

The star studded event was attended by celebs such as Tinie Tempah, Ellie Golding, Ricky Gervais and Calvin Harris. The bar provided by Mobile Bar Hire was visited by the likes of Olympic gymnast Louis Smith and International Marketing Director for Patron Tequila.

This isn’t the first time the portable bar specialists have rubbed shoulders with elites; in the past Mobile Bar Hire have provided bars for events attended by the Prime Minister, UEFA, The One Show and Alan Carr just to name a few.
