Hiring a mobile bar should do the trick if you need that little extra for your event, wedding or party. What is a mobile bar, you ask? The name says it all; it’s a bar that can move around to bring the party everywhere you want to go. It’s perfect for remote locations in which events have been booked, garden parties, even indoors at homes to keep everyone from mobbing your kitchen islands

We’ve done events from strange locations in basements, or underground closed down stations, right through to the Fishmarkets of Venice. But 90% of our events, are simply in the homes, usually kitchens of the hosts that hire us. 

The kitchen Island for example is a perfect place, this is our most common place to be put, everyone can gather around it so easily & it just becomes the perfect central place to have your party with a hired cocktail maker, mixologist or Cocktail Bartender.

How to hire a cocktail maker

Very much like we listed above, to hire a cocktail maker. First you need to fill out the enquiry form on our site. Someone from the office will aim to call you within 2 working days, this isn’t set in stone, we may have insanely busy weeks & it may take a little longer. We talk with you about your event, answer any questions you may have then we leave you with the information emailed over after the call. 

We do get people who dont leave telephone contact information & “demand” that we only speak by email, im sorry, but we just outright clean delete these enquiries. They’ll never be responded to. It opens the door to complete inefficiency & weeks of emailing back & forth questions that could have been answered in minutes at the beginning. We are too busy for that & cant run a business this way. Unless a short 5 minute phone call can be factored into enquiring, we simply just discard the enquiry. 

Along with confirmation & cementing of the pricing you’ve just been told, we also send a cocktail menu, Then when & of course if you’re happy with us. 

All we ever need back as an email response, is the address of the event, then the cocktails chosen. We can finish absolutely everything off with only those 2 pieces of information. 


How to hire a cocktail barman

In the exact same way listed above. We only provide cocktail bartenders. This entire paragraph is just to answer a commonly written question on google. 

We of course dont offer specific genders, you get the best bartender for the event, be it male or female. We also only provide cocktail bartenders, but if they are used to make normal drinks, such as Gin & tonics, or to open beers. These things are fine, but know we do not offer any discounts for lesser workloads. We operate on a “By the hour basis” & the only 2 tiers in which we offer, are Cocktail Bartenders, or Flair Bartenders. 

Send an enquiry over, we can give you all the information you require, are on hand to answer any questions & then the information is left with you to take it or leave it. 

Is hiring a Mixologist the same thing?

Yes, A Mixologist is just another name Bartenders or Cocktail Makers go by. 

There are a few “industry” squabbles about what makes a Mixologist, or what makes a bartender, but ultimately, no matter what title they give themselves, their role is to make guests drinks. 

So yes, you can hire a Mixologist from us too, honestly, we’d send the same person. Only our Mixologists dont follow the typical stereotype of taking forever to make a drink, or that they will bore their guests with stories of prohibition, or what year their special batch of home made bitters was created. Our Mixologists, Bartenders & Cocktail Makers are there to make sure you get your cocktails in a timely fashion, be able to engage in conversation with your guests & make sure that you. as the host have a great time at your party. 

Should you book a flair bartender or a cocktail bartender for your party?

Mobile Bar Hire

Mobile bars to hire are perfect for Parties, we have hired out Mobile Bars for all kinds of Locations, from Clothes shops doing Promotions for new stock lines, or launches, to Kitchens or Hallways in homes. to Marquees in back gardens, to completely remote locations in the middle of woodlands on private grounds. 

Most commonly, our Mobile bars are hired & used in Hotels, the ballrooms, function rooms & event spaces in which they have. 

Our Mobile Bars for hire were designed by ourselves & fabricated to our exact specifications, to be the best possible bars on the market, purpose built for our own requirements. And then we made sure they were not for sale by any other company. Originally designed so that they could fit in the back of a standard car to be transported, turns out over the years, our design had a better feature from the fact that it condenses so small when packed up. Is that our Mobile bar, can get into the tightest spaces when loading in, including difficult staircases, tight hallways & extremely restricted doorways. This has helped us so much over the years with some of the strange locations we have been asked to build a mobile bar. But in addition, makes a far more attractive hire for clients, as they know getting the bar inside their kitchen, despite a tight hallway, would not be a problem. 

We begin by installing the Steel & Aluminium framework, this is the solid base for ALL our bars, this takes literally less than 5 minutes once loaded in. 

Then the fun part, we have a vast selection of different aesthetics for bar fronts & bar tops, to create a huge variety of looks on the Mobile bar for hire. 

To take a closer look at those fronts & tops that you can currently select. Please take a look at the Mobile Bar Page. Or send us an enquiry. 

Here’s what our partygoers had to say about Cocktail Hire!

“That was the best party I’ve ever gone to! Seriously! I remembered everything about that night and it was spectacular. Everybody had a good time, and our cocktails were so delicious! Can’t wait to go back and party with Cocktail Hire again soon.” – Donald Barns. 

“That was amazing! If you want to party, then get Cocktail Hire’s services right now. If you don’t, you’re seriously missing out on a lot of fun stuff you would otherwise have if you call them. 

Their bartenders do these crazy moves and tricks, and we all gasped in joy then started partying right after. Can’t wait to party again with these fun people shortly!” – Joel Winger.

“I had a few drinks, and this bartender made me a drink that was out of this world. The barmen, bartenders, and cocktail makers were all professional and made the party even more enjoyable as we went all night having some fun.

I honestly cannot wait to go back to hiring Cocktail Hire to give us another fabulous party to experience. That night with them is another beautiful memory I’ll be cherishing for the rest of my life.” – Sherly Orita. 

What other services do we offer?

Aside from hiring cocktail makers, and bartenders, along with Mobile Bars, we also teach  masterclasses for different party skill. This service is mostly found in either a Hen Party, or a Corporate office environment as a team fun & bonding event. But it has plenty of other applications aswell. 

How this works is simply , select 3 cocktails, a Cocktail bartender provides all the ingredients, we (usually via amazon) send glasses to your event ahead of time. Then we come along to teach you, your 3 chosen cocktails & have some fun with everyone. 

Our classes are designed around fun, we wont send an over educated, obsessed bartender thats going to drone on about what year a special batch of prohibition bitters was invented etc, we are more than aware you wont care about this. Our guys concentrate on the fun aspects & make sure everyone stays quite lively during our classes & have actual personality, its a fun activity, not a lecture.

Glassware Hire 

Glassware hire is an aspect of our services that can be hired, however it is very important to know, that Glassware hire is ONLY available alongside bar hire. 

We are a national company, with bartenders spread throughout the land. Glassware, alongside bars come from a centralised location & are priced accordingly to factor in these logistics, Glassware only, the delivery & pickup charge would be so vast, we cant justify offering this service as a standalone product.

We do offer a page of advice on where to source glassware hire from for your event, you can find this here. 

Or of course, if you’re hiring a mobile bar with us, this is a very simple add on, making your event even easier to organise.
