Sooner or later, you’ll find yourself looking for an available pop up cocktail bar. But the question is: how do you know which one’s the BEST?

In this article, we’ll give you an ultimate guide to hiring pop up cocktail bars for corporate events and/or office parties. Keep on reading to squeeze out the juicy details you need!

HIRE EXPERIENCED AND PROFESSIONAL BARTENDERS

First thing’s first! When hiring a pop up cocktail bar for your corporate event, it’s important to ensure that the bartenders are experienced and professional. They should at least have the knowledge and skills to produce high-quality and delicious drinks that meet the expectations of your guests. They must know how to mix ingredients, create new and innovative cocktails, and present them in an oozing, irresistible manner. 

Professional bartenders also maintain grace under pressure, which means they are skilled in handling large crowds and long lines.

DETERMINE THE PURPOSE AND THEME OF YOUR EVENT

The purpose and theme of your event will determine the style, tone, and atmosphere you want to create for your guests. That’s why when you hire a mobile bar, make sure that their signature drinks and cocktail packages align with your event and not the other way around. When this is achieved, it will create a cohesive and enjoyable experience for everyone.

CONSIDER YOUR GUESTS’ PREFERENCES

Pay attention to this detail, guys, ‘cause the quality of the drinks served by your mobile cocktail bar can either make or break your event.

Always remember to check your supplier’s available menu and list of cocktail packages. Consider whether they are flexible and willing to customize their services to meet your specific needs and preferences. Be meticulous if you must; ask questions and negotiate. 

MAKE SURE YOU GET WHAT YOU PAY FOR

Discuss pricing with the pop-up cocktail bar supplier and make sure you understand their rates and any additional fees. Also, request for a contract in writing that outlines their services, pricing, and any other terms and conditions.

Most importantly, hire a pop up cocktail bar supplier that is punctual. Nobody wants a late drink during parties.

DO A BIT OF RESEARCH ABOUT THE COCKTAIL BAR

Good reviews lead to good choices. Research the reputation of the pop-up cocktail bar and read what previous clients have to say about them. This will give you an idea of their level of professionalism, quality of service, and reliability.

It’s also best to check if the mobile cocktail bar has all the necessary licenses, permits, equipment, and supplies to serve alcohol at your event. If you still need more info, don’t hesitate to check their website and social media accounts.

So that’s it! Make your corporate/office events filled with fun and excitement by hiring a reliable pop-up cocktail bar like Shakers on Wheels.

Our team will be delighted to serve the best drinks for you.

I used SOW for a backyard birthday party and we were lucky to have Jordan himself on the night. He was very friendly, professional and easy to deal with throughout the whole experience. He also did an amazing job despite the heat! The bar set up was nice and the cocktails were so smooth and delicious and definitely a hit with everyone.

Jordan was quick to respond to our initial enquiry and more than happy to assist, finding the best options for our event. We had a fabulous night with Marty the van. Bartenders, Julian and Kayla were fantastic! Top marks to Julian for his driving skills, placing the van exactly where we envisioned it. Many of our guests were very impressed and asked how we found you. We were sure to pass on your details to them. Thanks for helping Here are some photos from the night. Jo & Pete

I worked with Jordan and Oliver for a Fragrances & Cocktails Masterclass on behalf of Libertine Parfumerie. We hosted this event at Myer, for our VIP customers. Oliver was perfect during the event, took care of 26 customers and made 6 different cocktails to match 6 fragrances. We planned the event with Jordan, who helped me a lot with the recipes for the cocktails and was very good at communicating. Thank you again for this successful event! I would recommend Shakers on Wheel to everyone :)
