Do you carry a liquor license?

We do not, unfortunately ohio doesn't allow us to carry a liquor license making our bar a byob. all you have to do is supply the booze and we handle the rest!

aRE YOU INSURED?

yES! wE CARRY GENERAL LIABILITY AS WELL AS lIQUOR lIABILITY - THIS IS VERY IMPORTANT WHEN BOOKING A BARTENDER FOR YOUR EVENT! IF YOUR VENUE REQUIRES US TO LIST THEM ON OUR POLICY IT WILL COSTS AN ADDITIONAL $100. 

wHAT IF I NEED JUST A BARTENDER FOR MY EVENT?

wELL THEN YOU HAVE FOUND YOUR BARTENDERS! WE ARE CERTIFIED, INSURED AND DEFINITELY KNOW HOW TO MIX UP A GREAT TASTING COCKTAIL.

wHAT IS COVERED IN MY HOURLY RATE?

gREAT QUESTION! WE WILL BRING EVERYTHING NEEDED TO SERVE UP YOUR GUESTS when you decide which package suites your needs. all pakages INCLUDe: the ICE, BAR WARE, CUPS or glassware, STRAWS, SETTING UP, CLEAN UP, TRAVEL TIME, MENU PLANNING, BARTENDERS, ETC. ALL YOU HAVE TO DO IS PICK UP AND PURCHASE THE ALCOHOL. 

where do i store the alcohol?

wherever your little heart desires! just kidding - most venues have some fridge space if you want to get the party started and have some chilled beers on hand. if not, we get there early enough to ice it down! we do recommend however that you keep a case of each beer and bottle of wine chilled so its nice and cold come service time. kegs are a different story - these should be chilled before hand, we don't want no foamy beer now. juST LET US KNOW WHERE THE ALCOHOL WILL BE AND WE'LL GRAB IT WHEN WE GET THERE.

wHY IS MY booking fee NON-REFUNDABLE?

YOUR DEPOSIT SECURES YOUR DATE- IF YOU HAPPEN TO CANCEL YOUR EVENT, WE HAVE ALREADY SAVED THAT DATE FOR YOU AND MOST LIKELY HAVE ALREADY HAD TO TURN DOWN OTHER CUSTOMERS. NOT ONLY DOES IT SECURE YOUR DATE BUT WE HAVE BUILT IN THE COSTS OF INSURANCE AS WELL, SO YOU'RE COVERED COME TIME TO PARTY! and not only that..but we spend on average 20 + hours planning for your event! 

Do you only serve alcoholic drinks?

we can do whatever drinks your heart desires! having a kids birthday, we can do a variety of fun drinks, serve ice cream, snoW cones, whatever you can think of.

can you serve draft beer?

we sure do! (only greta AND pENELOPE) we can accommodate up to two different beers, just make sure they are sixth barrel kegs or Cornelius (or corny) kegs.

do you rent out greta or penelope?

we don't at this time, MAYBE IN THE FUTURE WE CAN WORK SOMETHING OUT!

why did you name your mobile Bars GReta, Penelope, AND marabelle?

ahh, good question. we actually really like the band greta van fleet (if you HAVEN'T heard of them, do yourself a favor and check them out). that's it, we just really like the band and thought it was the perfect name for her. as for penelope, my grandpa used to introduce my father as his ugly daughter - penelope. not that we think penelope is ugly, but the story is funny. Marabelle came from my papa's sisters name -  we think it's a pretty name.

How far do you travel?

well, that depends on how much you want to spend. we will travel up to 50 miles at no charge after 50 miles we charge per mile 

we booked you! now what?

here's a short timeline of how it works- first off, THANK YOU!! WE'LL BE SENDIING OVER AN INVOICE FOR THE BOOKING FEE, AFTER THAT YOUR DATE IS SECURE. THIS WILL BE FOLLOWED BY A CONTRACT. AFTER THAT WE USUALLY SEND THE FINAL INVOICE (WHICH CAN BE CHANGED BEFORE IT'S PAID) THEN, WE'LL START THE MENU PLANNING - THIS MAY BE at RANDOM times SINCE WE DO EVERYTHING OURSELVES and we're busy people -but IF YOU DONT HEAR FROM US FOR A WHILE - DON'T WORRY WE DIDN'T FORGET ABOUT YOU BUT GO AHEAD AND SEND US AND EMAIL AND WE'LL GET STARTED.
