Bar Hire FAQ's

FAQs
WHAT DOES GIMLET BAR PROVIDE?

Unlike the many bar-hire companies out there, our price includes everything; alcohol, syrups, fruit displays & ice, beautiful zinc-topped bar, bartenders (beautifully turned out), stylish glassware and transport to your location.

We can also apply for Temporary Events Notice cover (if required).


HOW MUCH DOES IT COST?

We appreciate that each cocktail service is different. Each quote is tailored to suit a particular event, location or available budget. The cost of your cocktail service will likely depend on these factors:

Number of guests present
Number of drinks per guest
Service duration [typically 3 hours]
Type of service [lighter less alcoholic drinks vs strong cocktails]


HOW MANY DRINKS PER GUEST?

The general rule of thumb seems to be; two drinks in the first hour, one drink every hour thereafter. Should you wish to reduce or increase the number of drinks per guest, we can of course factor this into your quote.


HOW LONG IS THE COCKTAIL SERVICE?

The perfect cocktail service in our opinion is three hours long and this normally what we base our quote on. We can serve for longer if need be.


HOW does payment work?

After agreeing a budget and drinks menu with you, we raise a deposit invoice for you to pay in order to complete your booking. The deposit invoice is 50% of the total event cost. We ask that this is paid no less than 2-weeks prior to your event date.

Following the event we raise a second invoice for the remaining 50%.
