Make a Statement at Your Event with Susie Q

A Mobile Bar and Shop with Style

Looking to add fun, style and elegance to a wedding or other event in Northern Michigan? Partner with Life and Whim to provide guests with a unique and unforgettable Michigan mobile bar experience. Our Michigan mobile bar, Susie Q, is the perfect accessory for a great party.

Susie Q is a vintage 1968 Williams Craft 16-foot camper that we completely restored and transformed into a beautiful, fun and completely unique mobile bar service and entertaining space. Working together with event planners and businesses (particularly vineyards and breweries in the region), we provide impeccable service so that event hosts can focus on entertaining their guests. Together we throw an amazing party in style! From weddings, to corporate events, to backyard BBQ's, we’re passionate about providing great service, attention to detail, fun atmosphere, and most importantly a great party enjoyed by all in beautiful Northern Michigan.

Rent Susie Q for Your Next Event

We rent Susie Q to northern Michigan event planners and businesses, such as vineyards and breweries, who want a unique mobile bar to serve their guests. We provide the space and our customers provide the bartending service.

What areas do you cover?

Our home is Traverse City, but we’re willing to bring the party 60 miles in any direction.

Where can Susie Q party?

Susie is approximately 16ft long x 9ft tall x 8ft wide so the venue must be able to accommodate her size. The space must be easily accessible and have flat ground to park her on. We prefer venues with an electric source (30 amp), although we can provide a generator if needed for an additional fee. If permits are required, the client or client’s catering company must obtain them.

Is Susie Q just a bar?

From time to time we use Susie as a mobile pop-up shop for events we host, and she is also available on a limited basis as a unique setting for photo shoots.

How much does Susie Q cost?

Because we’ve found that everyone’s party preferences differ, we provide custom pricing for every event based on the customer’s specifications. Typically, the minimum cost is $750 to rent Susie Q for up to 5 hours.
