1. Choose first whether you need a bartender for your event

Having a mobile bartender at your event is a luxury service. Some key questions you should ask yourself to discover if you need to hire a mobile bartender near you are:

"Does my corporate event need a licensed and insured bartender to serve liquor?"- the majority of the time, the answer to this is yes. You need a licensed and insured bartender to serve alcohol on premises.

"Does my event venue require this as well?"- You can check with your venue and ask to see what their vendor requirements are.

"Do I want to be serving drinks at the event?" Many hosts who do parties at their home would rather spend time with their loved ones instead of making drinks. Others don't mind, but it is something you will want to ask yourself.

2. Match the aesthetic of the event with the right mobile bar company near you

You want to make sure you hire a mobile bartending company that aligns with the vision of the event. Some mobile bartending companies have cute bar set-ups, while others offer more simplistic bar setups. Make sure to check their socials and website to see if you can get an idea of their style.
