Do I need to organise a license so that alcohol can be sold?
What do you require from us?
Nothing! Just complete your mobile bar booking form and return it to us and we will take care of the rest.. On the day we will just need a suitable sized space to house our bars and equipment and a power supply.
When will you set up/arrive to work/leave etc.?
Where feasible we will aim to set up our mobile bar a day or two before the actual event takes place. Where this isn’t feasible, due to the venue not being available or other such reasons we will set the bar up on the day – this will be confirmed with yourself upon booking. Depending on access the bar takes approximately two hours to set up, we will then aim to arrive a minimum of 60 minutes before the event begins for final touches.
Again, where feasible we will always aim to completely clear up and remove the entire bar, including all glassware, on the night after the event has finished. This again will take approximately two hours. If there are any timing restrictions to the venue please notify us upon booking so alternative arrangements can be made.
Am I allowed to bring my own alcohol?
If you have chosen our Cash Bar or Open Bar package, then unfortunately due to licensing reasons, we are unable to allow guests to provide their own alcohol. We will provide all of the alcohol necessary for the bar itself and we also offer very competitive prices on table wines and reception drinks which includes, providing full glassware, for the drinks to be chilled and put out on the tables and then all bottles to be cleared away with the bar at the end of the night, so you don’t need to worry about this at the end of your day!
How far in advance do we need to book?
As far in advance is preferable for us so we can plan our events accordingly. Temporary Event Notices have to be applied for at least 10 working days before the event, however these can take up to a few weeks to come through due to many different reasons, so we require confirmation at least a month in advance to enable us enough time to get the technical things sorted! If you require any specialty drinks that need to be sourced, please let us know when confirming your bar package (again at least a month in advance is preferable) to enable us enough time to source specific products.
