Now that the holidays are over, it is time to start planning for a fun and exciting 2023!
Undoubtedly, the bar is one of the essential elements of any successful celebration. Your guests, ready to toast the occasion, look forward to the camaraderie of gathering around this focal point and, of course, cocktails that come with the addition of a bar to your event.
Mobile bars are becoming wildly popular in the event planning arena, so what should you look for when choosing the right mobile bar for your celebration?
Before you go all in on choosing a mobile bar, check with your event venue to see that it will be allowed. Most hotels and event spaces are happy to accommodate a mobile bar business, but it is worth your time to double-check. Additionally, you will need to ask the mobile bar company if they have any specific space size or access requirements, including electrical access. Finding a mobile bar capable of generating its own power makes it easier for all parties.
Mobile Bar Aesthetics
Your mobile bar should add, not detract, from the aesthetics of your event. So, find one that is visually comfortable and picturesque. Whether your event is indoor or outdoor, ask the mobile bar company for photos of their setup at previous events.
Some things to look for are recessed lighting, attractive barware storage, nice bar stools, and cleanliness. Some mobile bars even include high-top tables and stools to expand your mingling space.
The Cocktail Menu
A mobile bar can be a classy and surprisingly inexpensive addition to your event. Before hiring the company, ask what liquors and mixers are included in the event’s pricing. Some mobile bars will help you curate a menu, including a signature cocktail for your guests.
When you choose your mobile bar, ensure it includes a host that staffs it to serve drinks to your guests. While it might seem obvious, you will also want to ask the company if they provide all the bar equipment and keep the bar clean during the event. It is also wise to ask the company to see their licenses, including the one for the bartender at your event.
