Hiring an event bar from Southern Events can take the pressure and responsibility off the event organiser.
All our cash bar and all-inclusive packages include, a bar set up within a provided venue or inside either a 3m x 3m marquee attachment or outside bar depending on your preference. We provide all our own equipment, glasses and license for every event.
We have various packages to choose from for your event:
- Cash Bar - Guests pay per drink using cash.
- Tab Bar (Money behind bar) - You deposit an initial figure then guests receive pre-paid drinks until funds expire. You can then choose to top-up the fund or have your guests pay per drink.
- 5 Hour All-Inclusive Bar - Prices for an all-inclusive bar start from £30 per head. This will vary depsning on the range of drinks you would like available. After the 5 hours the bar then becomes a cash bar.
All of the above options can be mixed and matched to provide you with the ideal solution.
However, if you would like to provide the alcohol yourself then we are happy to rent you all the equipment including set up then collect it when you are finished, see our own alcohol section for more details.
So what drinks do we offer on our bars? We can provide all the regular items you would get in a normal pub, including a full range of spirits and mixers, along side the traditional ales and lager on tap. These are sold for similar if not lower than your local pub prices. We do have our standard stock however if there is something specific you are after, please let us know and we will endeavour to add this to your bar.
