Do I need to apply for an alcohol licence?

No. When you book Near and Far Mobile Bar we take care of all confusing licensing applications on your behalf. We take the stress out of the process for you so you can focus on getting prepared for your event! We also include the licence application fee in our booking fee.

Do you provide glassware?

Absolutely! We provide all the necessary glassware to serve the drinks from your selected menu for your event.

Do you offer dry-hire?

We do not provide bartenders or bars for dry-hire. All bars hosted by Near and Far Mobile Bar must exclusively have alcohol supplied by us unless there has been a prior agreement at the initial enquiry stage.

Do you charge an hourly rate?

We do not impose additional fees for extended hours. We will manage the bar service starting at your chosen commencement time and continue until your event concludes.

How does payment of the bar tab work?

We have a couple of options available depending on your event, budget and requirements:

• Cash Bar

Guests pay as they go for their drinks via cash or card.

• Part Paid Bar

The Host chooses a desired amount to put “behind the bar” for drinks. We serve the guests up to that amount at no cost. Once the threshold has been reached, we will then revert to a pay bar where your guests can pay for their drinks by cash or card. We can also provide you with drinks tokens for your guests to redeem against their drinks.

• Open Bar

The Host pays for the full bar tab for the full duration of the event at the end of the hire.

Do you offer beer on tap?

We have a fully mobile draught beer system available for all events. If you are particularly interested in having draught beer we always request this is stated at the point of booking.

Is it a full bar?

We offer bar types depending on what you would like. We can offer micro prosecco, cocktail, and gin bars as well as fully stocked full bars. Your party – your choice!

Can I choose what is served at my event?

Yes! We want you to have free reign to choose the best options for your guests from our extensive menu. You can choose from a selection of beers, ciders, wines, spirits, cocktails, mocktails and soft drinks ensuring there is something to suit everyone!
