Dear Awesome Party Planner,

SBS Award Winner
Winner of 2018 SBS Awards by BBC Dragon’s Den star Theo Paphitis

Is trying to organise the drinks for your party giving you a headache? The glass hire, where to get the drinks, keeping it all stored safely and how to stop all the ice from melting! The list is practically endless and just when you think you’ve got one thing sorted, up pops another. It’s just so frustrating!

Planning a special party or event is always stressful; there’s just so much to do! Imagine the hassle of having to clean, count and re-pack all that glassware once your party is finished. And what about breakages? You’ll have to pay for those too! And there’s the added risk that your supplies may get stolen before your event, especially if it’s outdoors. Why does it have to be so complicated?

Multi-award-winning catering
Multiple winners of some of the UK’s biggest industry awards

We know that when you’re planning your party, you don’t want to have to worry about the details, you just want things taken care of so you can have a fabulous time along with all your guests.

With an all-inclusive mobile bar like ours absolutely everything is taken care of. The rustic wooden bar itself, set-up, drinks, bar staff, ice for everyone, even fresh bar fruit to liven up everyone’s drinks! We do it all, including cleaning everything up afterwards.

Your guests will be served by our friendly, uniformed staff and we can provide whatever drinks you have specified, but please be aware that we can’t do anything too fancy so if you’re after proper cocktails then you’ll need to hire someone separately.

However, if you’re looking to keep your guests well watered with a cash bar then look no further. We’ll look after all your refreshment needs and you won’t have to worry about underage guests being served alcohol by accident, we operate a strict Challenge 21 policy.

If you like the sound of all that then you’ll want to keep reading, and here’s why…

  • Multiple winners of some of the UK’s biggest industry awards including The Wedding Industry Awards, English Wedding Awards, The British Pie Awards and more.

  • Winner of 2018 SBS Awards by BBC Dragon’s Den star Theo Paphitis

When you hire our mobile bar for your celebration, you’ll no longer have to worry about all those details, big or small, that have been on your mind.

We do all of the setting up, serving, and importantly, all of the tidying up afterwards. All you’ll need to do is decide on which drinks you’d like to have behind the bar and you can be sipping champagne with the rest of your guests.

Even licencing is taken care of for you as part of our service. Your guests will need to produce a valid ID if asked so that we can guarantee that no alcohol is served to any minors amongst your party goers.

Our Mobile Bar Isn’t For Everyone

Over 105 Testimonials
Over 125 awesome testimonials from delighted newly-wed couples

We’ve built a great reputation out of a small, dedicated team of knowledgeable experts who are committed to providing the very best service and experience for our customers. But we know that isn’t everyone’s cup of tea.

There are lots of bar hire options out there if you aren’t concerned about quality or great service and if that’s the case then unfortunately, we probably aren’t the right company for you.

Frequently Asked Questions

1) Do you cover my location?

We’ve catered in hundreds of different venues throughout Leicestershire, the surrounding areas and even further afield, so it’s highly likely that we’re able to cover your location and venue. But just to be sure, the best thing to do is check availability now to see if we’re free on your date.

2) What if my event is outdoors?

That’s no problem at all, we’re experts in outdoor events. And because our bar service is fully mobile it comes with everything included. We’ll let you know what our power requirements are for running the bar but we’ll take care of everything else.

3) What about licensing requirements?

Because we provide a mobile bar service we sort out all the licensing ourselves; there’s no need for you to worry about it at all. Our licence will enable us to sell and serve your drinks at your location in accordance with UK licensing law. However, if its a private residence you will be responsible for licensing unfortunately.

4) Are you available on my event date?

I certainly hope so. We’d love to help make your event a huge success. But the only way to find out is to check availability now and have one of my team confirm whether your date is still available. Don’t delay, I’d hate for you to miss out on the experience that so many have enjoyed.

5) I’ve been let down in the past. Can you guarantee that you'll be there on the day?

Absolutely. We’ve built a strong reputation on not only outstanding food and drink but on solid reliability and amazing customer service. We’d never dream of letting you down on your important day. We guarantee that you won’t have to worry about a thing and you’ll never have to chase us to find out what’s going on.
