We don’t like to use the word package as we feel it suggests a ready-made service that fits all, but it is probably the most common description of the different types of mobile bar hire services available. All events are unique, and we believe the bars should be too!
We’ve explained the three most common options below.
The cash bar
The cash bar is the most popular mobile bar hire option we get asked for as it works at almost any event, including weddings and birthday parties. We take care of everything – Licensing, bar setup, all stock, staffing, clearing up and recycling. You tell us where, when, and how many, and we’ll sort the rest!
This option is usually free to yourself, subject to a pre-agreed minimum spend, as your guests will be paying for their drinks. All our bar prices are on par with social club pricing, which is much more affordable than either your local pub or most venue bars.
We have a vast range of stock, consisting of over 120 premium brand beverages (our current stock list is viewable here), meaning this option will ensure there is a drink suitable for every guest’s taste.
Subject to a good 3G mobile signal, our cash bars also accept all popular forms of card and contactless payments.
A pre-paid token system or a cash advance by the host to cover a certain amount of drinks is a popular addition and an excellent option for anyone organising an event on a tight budget.
The Dry Hire bar
With the dry hire option, we supply the bars, glassware and staff, and you provide the drinks you would like to serve. A dry hire bar is a good option for the host who doesn’t want their guests to pay for their drinks. The downside is that it is difficult to choose not only the correct beverages, but also the quantities, meaning the host could have a lot of stock after the event, or that guests have little choice of drinks on offer.
Equipment only hire
This one is relatively self-explanatory. You hire the equipment you need from us, and we’ll deliver it and set it up. If you have arranged staff and drinks, this is a good option. If we don’t have it ourselves, we’ll know where to source it!
Our own hire equipment includes:
Front bars – A range of units available from 5ft long to 40ft long.
Back bars – From 10ft long to 20ft long
Freezers – Perfect for storing ice or chilling bottle quickly
Draught dispense systems – From one product up to 7 products. If you need more, just let us know and we can source more!
Guinness surger units – The budget solution for the perfect pint of Guinness!
Keg & gas hire – Virtually any product you see on the bar of your favourite pub.
As we said at the beginning, we don’t like the word ‘package’ to describe the different option, so feel free to pick and choose what you need. Our service is as bespoke and unique as your event!
