Bartending Service

Traveling Tapster, is a mobile cocktail bar that travels to you. I have over 20 years of bar, restaurant, and hospitality experience. We specialize in cocktail catering for weddings, corporate events, yard/neighborhood parties and more. I have been passionate about combining flavors for as long as I can remember, which ultimately led me to a career in the creative world of mixology.

Uniquely Original

I have been bartending for as long as I can remember. Starting out in a small town bar and grill being the cook, server, and bartender, to managing one of the top bars in town, even managing an event venue bar while currently being a Managing Partner of Emil's Hideaway in Cedar Rapids, Iowa. I've spent several years thrilling clients with fresh, original libations, and great conversation. Since working in the industry, I've mastered the basics in order to learn how and where I could best innovate and include my creative flair.

Traveling Tapster, a mobile cocktail bar, came to life while being home during quarantine 2020. I could see how local food trucks were thriving in neighborhoods and wondered why couldn't mobile bars? I missed my customers so much and figured that this was the perfect way to reconnect. So my husband and I teamed up to create Traveling Tapster. 

When coming up with new drinks and cocktails, I always keeps flavor profiles in mind and focus on maintaining their balance. Nevertheless, my curiosity and fun spirit help make sure that this mobile bartending service is always coming up with new experiences.
