FAQs

How much does it cost to hire our services?

All bars require a deposit of £150 to secure the booking. However, the service is free for all events when your party’s bar-spend exceeds £1000. There will be a £150 license/setup charge for any event where the total bar-spend does not exceed £1000.


How much do you charge for your drinks?

We do not overcharge for our drinks. Our pricing is in line with local pubs.


Is a license required for my event?

Any event that has a pay bar requires a Temporary Event Notice (license to sell alcohol). We will apply for the license for you as part of our comprehensive service.


What areas do you cover?

Absolute Bar Services covers the North Wales, Wirral, Cheshire and surrounding area.


Is your business insured?

Yes, we have both Employee and Public Liability Insurance.


Are there any limitations on where your bars can be set up?

Our bars can normally be set up anywhere. When required we will arrange a site visit to check on the suitability of the venue. Our bar designs are flexible for all locations and fully mobile.


Do you supply the glasses/disposable glasses?

Yes, as part of our service, unlike many mobile bar companies,  we supply all the glassware, free of charge. See our terms & conditions reference broken or missing glassware. We have a comprehensive selection of glasses and we pride ourselves on pouring all drinks into the correct type of glass. Disposable glasses can be supplied if required. We also supply a competitive service for table glassware.


How are the drinks kept cool?

All our bars come with bottle fridges and freezers. The draught beer is kept at the optimum temperature using the latest under counter or remote beer coolers. We always have plenty of ice, ensuring your drinks are suitably chilled.


How much advanced warning do I need to give to book a bar?

Usually we need to apply for an alcohol license to sell alcohol. The authorities require 10 clear working days (effectively 2 weeks) notice. During busy periods this can take time so ideally we require 28 days notice to arrange everything satisfactory. Please note that for us to provide quality bars, we restrict the bookings for each date and work on a first come, first served basis. Therefore, we recommend booking early.


What range of drinks can you supply?

We tailor the bar to your requirements. We provide a full bar service with an extensive range of draught and bottled beers, wines and soft drinks and only use premium spirits. Special requests can be catered for.


Can we supply our own welcome table and toasting drinks?

Yes, of course, but we ask you to take into consideration our bar prices are not inflated and we rely on your guests to use the bar to cover our overhead costs. Therefore we ask you to restrict the table wine to no more than 2 glasses per person. However, we will do our utmost to work with you. We do offer competitive drink packages. Please ask for details.

Under the 2003 Licensing Act, apart from the agreed table drinks, no guest is permitted to bring their own alcohol within the licensed premises.


Can you supply me with Cask Ale?

Cask Ales can be supplied and served. We have access to a large portfolio to suit your requirements. However, if we supply Cask Ale it is on the understanding that if any of the Ale remains unsold we reserve the right to charge for wastage.


Can you serve Cocktails?

Yes, our staff are experienced in preparing cocktails. We can tailor them to your requirements. The names of the cocktails can be personalised by you.


How do I book your services?

To avoid disappointment, it is important that you check our availability first. Then our contract form needs to be completed and sent to us with the setup fee. Once received, your booking will be confirmed by email.


Can my guests pay be Credit/Debit card?

Unfortunately, due to the terrain of the area that we work, receiving a mobile signal is very patchy. Therefore, we only accept credit/debit card payments if we can receive either Wi-Fi or a 4G signal. Therefore, it is probably better to advise your guests to bring cash.
