In the case of a recent office-warming party at First American Title Insurance, office chairs were rolled out into the hall of the downtown highrise to make way for a 42-inch bar setup just a few steps from the reception desk.

Bartender/businessman Eddie Crane of Revel Traveling Bar says his mobile bar service is designed to provide a level of hospitality that suits the ambiance.

“We tend to pass on big events, because we want it tailored to you,” Crane says. “We work to make it as familial and as hospitable as the bar you love to go to.”

Look for Revel Traveling Bar at Chow Town’s Food Truck Friday events at The Kansas City Star building on Grand Boulevard on First Fridays in May, June, September and October.
