The Wandering Whale is a mobile bar that brings beverages and bartending services to weddings in and around Sarasota, Florida. Owner and bartender Jill has a background in interior design and more than 15 years of experience working in the restaurant industry. She combined that experience with her entrepreneurial spirit in order to bring this boutique bar to life. Her mobile bar offers an elegant experience as well as craft cocktails to couples throughout the southern region of the Tampa Bay Area.
What started as one refurbished 1978 horse trailer has since expanded to become a fleet of bars that can be rented with or without a bartender. The Classic and Coastal Botanical Bars make for adorable counter options, while the Bar Boat lends a nautical flair to receptions. The original white horse trailer, decorated with locally sourced flowers, has been fully restored to a chic and sophisticated bar. All four bars come fully equipped with cups, napkins, ice, and coolers. Couples can also procure Jill’s bartending services separately if they already have a bar. Perfect for outdoor receptions and cocktail hours, the Wandering Whale offers an unforgettable night of excellent service and delicious drinks along the shimmering Florida coast.
