Bartenders | Mixologists | Mobile bar hire | Cocktail workshops
I DON'T WANT COCKTAILS. CAN YOU STILL HELP?
Yes we can! We have a team of bartenders who will serve beers, wines, spirit mixers, soft drinks, make smoothies etc. but we can also take care of waiters and waitresses for your event. Prices for these staff members start from £25 p/h.
HOW MUCH ICE WILL I NEED AND WHY SO MUCH?
We will advise you on how much ice you will need once we know your menu and number of guests. Lots of clients are surprised by how much ice is needed - cocktails need lots of ice! It is crucial to cater for ice to chill glasses, put in shakers, add to drinks as well as taking into account the ice that melts! We recommend buying your ice from the supermarket or ordering it to be delivered by a specialist ice company. In some of our packages ice is included.
CAN I PAY BY DEBIT/CREDIT CARD?
Yes! We accept payment by all major debit and credit cards. Please call us on 077 0970 3180 to make a card payment over the phone.
We accept all Visa, Mastercard, Maestro and American Express debit and credit cards.
HOW FAR DO YOU TRAVEL?
We will travel anywhere in the UK, Ireland and even Mainland Europe. As our bartenders are based all over the UK and many have a car, we can normally get someone to your location. If you are not sure if we can come to you, please give us a call on 077 0970 3180 or Contact us
DO I NEED TO GET ANY SPECIALIST COCKTAIL MAKING KIT?
No, our bartenders will bring all of this with them. This is free of charge - every bartender will bring with them the equipment they need as part of the service. They will also supply something to store ice and fruit in while serving.
CAN I ASK MY BARTENDER TO STAY FOR EXTRA HOURS ON THE NIGHT?
If you would like the bartender to stay for extra time, just ask them on the night. This can be paid in cash directly to the bartender or you can you simply pay over the phone with any UK debit or credit card so you never have to worry about cash on the night. The hourly flat rate for this is £30 p/h.
WHAT ABOUT VAT?
No, we are not VAT registered and as such we don't have to charge any VAT to our customers. Therefore we can charge you a little less then our VAT registered competitors. You can be safe in the knowledge that we are amongst the best in the business by providing a more personalised and bespoke experience. No challenge is too great for us!
HOW MUCH WILL THE COCKTAIL SHOPPING LIST COST ME?
Something we get asked all the time! There is no easy straight up answer to this question however we suggest that a figure of around £1.50 per cocktail (inclusive of the ingredients and ice) is a fairly accurate cost. The cost of the cocktails can be affected by lots of things including what cocktails you choose (for example champagne will make it more expensive), where you shop, what brands you buy, special deals and what ingredients you may already have.
Don't forget that you will also think about the glassware you need. As a guide: The fewer cocktails you choose, the less the cost per cocktail will be. Ingredients includes alcohol, juices and mixers, fruit, purées and sundry items.
DO YOU HAVE INSURANCE? ARE YOU LICENSED?
All our bartenders are insured. Mr Bartender has full employers (up to £5 million) and public liability insurance (up to £10 million). We are also fully licensed for the sale of alcohol by the relevant Licensing Authority
CAN I HIRE JUST THE BARTENDER?
Yes of course! That is what we do. All our bartenders are available to hire on an hourly basis.
If you have further questions please call us on 077 0970 3180 or Email us
HOW MANY COCKTAILS SHOULD I CHOOSE?
You can choose an many as you would like, however we recommend you choose a maximum of five to seven cocktails. This way you do not have to buy a hugely extensive list of ingredients and things are more manageable for the bartender during your event.
SHOULD I TIP MY BARTENDER?
This is entirely up to you! Most clients do like to give the staff something at the end of the event but this is at your own discretion.
CAN YOU PROVIDE A COMPLETE BAR SERVICE?
Yes! Look no further then our Gold Package - we take care of absolutely everything and anything for you. All you need to do is tell us what drinks you would like at your event!
THERE ARE ONLY GOING TO BE A FEW OF US AT THE EVENT. IS THIS A PROBLEM?
Not at all. We do not have a minimum party size (or a maximum!)
WHAT DEPOSIT DO YOU NEED TO HOLD A BOOKING?
To confirm your booking we do require a 50% deposit - this way we can guarantee your event. And don't worry, this deposit is fully refundable/transferable up to 21 days prior to your event (we of course hope this is never needed).
The remaining balance is due no later then seven days before the event.
WHERE CAN I SEE A COPY OF YOUR COCKTAIL MENU?
Please text us on 077 0970 3180 with your email address or Contact us and we will send you a copy of our latest cocktail menu.
WHAT GLASSWARE DO I NEED TO GET?
The glasses you need will depend on what cocktails you choose. We will send you a Glassware Recommendation outlining what glasses you will require, what size they should be and how many we recommend you get. If you choose our Silver and Gold packages we will take care of all glassware free of charge!
