Coffee, Beverage & Wine Events
Eurobar began in 1996 to bring high-quality,
European/Italian-style espresso and cappuccino bars as a mobile catered option
for parties and events. Both
owners, Melissa Darisay and Brock Thorpe, had family-owned coffee houses and
also traveled around opening various coffee and juice bars establishments as
paid consultants. Melissa is a
Certified Event Manager and Brock is a Certified Master Service Technician.

What got you interested in the catering industry and what is

We love coffee so much that we wanted to bring it to the general public
as an elegant beverage option for catered events.
The most rewarding part of this job is the people we meet.
What’s special about catering for weddings? What is your favorite part about
catering for weddings?
You just know that
this is the “moment” and the Bride and Groom’s special day. Love the fact that the espresso bar
becomes a social center for guests.
How would you describe the Eurobar experience?
We’ve done weddings
where the Bride and Groom met at a coffee bar and the entire wedding is based
around our services, the authentic experience we bring and the high-quality
selection of gourmet espresso café drinks. There is no one else in San Diego that has the knowledge and
experience in the coffee and event industry business that Eurobar has.
