Uber Eats is extending the summer session with the ultimate at home minibar – squeezing the trappings of a tiny neighbourhood pub into a six wheeled former military vehicle that Aussies can order to their driveway.

The Bar in a Car, designed to look like a travelling tavern, will have a globally renowned bartender riding along for a mixology masterclass. Serving up the final summer sundowner drinks in style.

Stefano Catino, whose Maybe Sammy venue was listed in the Top 50 Bars in the World list, will be hosting a VIP cocktail experience in the Bar in a Car. After the class, customers will also be able to take away and enjoy the unique cocktail kits at home. 

With many Aussies returning to work after the summer holidays, the christening of the car comes fresh on the heels of research undertaken by Uber Eats and Censuswide, that reveals more than half of Aussie’s surveyed would prefer to have a drink at home with family than take part in after work beverages with their teammates.

“On Uber you can go anywhere or get anything – including amazing experiences to share with your family and friends. The Bar in the Car is the perfect way to extend summer at home for one last hurrah before you have to head back to the grind,” said Stefano Catino.

The summer sundowner is alive and well, with 3 in 5 Aussies surveyed admitting they host friends once or more a month and 1 in 9 preferring to socialise with friends at home rather than go to after work drinks.

“Remote work has yielded plenty of advantages but with more than 1 in 6 of Aussies being more likely to work from home on Friday, the end of week knockoff drink has lost some of its sparkle. With Uber Eats featuring thousands of drink options across NSW, VIC and QLD for the end of week tipple, this six wheeled watering hole is a great reminder that Uber Eats is able to bring the bar to you and your neighbours if you are WFH – or delaying your return to the office – with just a few clicks,” said General Manager, Retail Uber Eats ANZ, Lucas Groeneveld.
