Q: Can I design a mobile bar package for my event?
A: Yes. The fact that we can offer a customisable mobile bar package provides you with the ultimate in flexibility. We can provide a paid bar service at your event or we can offer a bar service which works to the budget you set. We offer 3 different packages as a guideline; firstly, a fully “Paid Bar” – this is where your guests pay for their drinks themselves. Secondly, we offer a “Limited Client-Paid Free Bar” – this is where you as the client can say that your guests can enjoy a free bar up to a certain value, and after this limit has been reached then it reverts into a normal “Paid Bar”. And thirdly, we offer a “Client-Paid Free Bar” – this is where you as the client provides payment up front for a free bar facility for all your guests for the event, the approximate price of which can be estimated together with us pre-event.
Q: Do I need to apply for any licenses?
A: If your event requires a temporary event notice for the sale of alcohol, we are able to apply directly for this on your behalf. There is a small additional fee of <£X> for this.
Q: When will you set up and dismantle for the event?
A: This depends upon the bar you choose and the requirements. Some of our mobile bars such as the cocktail bars and LED bars need more set-up time than the others. Again, we will work with you not only to customise the bar package you need, but also the service you need, a part of which is agreeing the set-up and dismantle arrangements.

Q: How much notice do I need to give you to hire a mobile bar?
