Creating the Perfect Fundraiser Bar Experience: Tips from a Professional Mobile Bartender

As an event planner or fundraiser, you know that a successful event can be a game-changer for your cause or organization. One key element of a successful fundraiser type event is the bar experience.

A well-executed bar and or non-alcoholic beverage service can not only add a touch of elegance to your event but can also generate significant fund generation for the charity or cause.

To help you create the perfect fundraiser or charity bar experience, we’ve gathered tips from professional beverage managers and bartenders who have years of experience in the industry.

  1. Hire a Professional Bartending Service Like Executive Beverage – A professional beverage manager and mobile bartenders from Executive Beverage will ensure that the bar is fully stocked, the drinks are well-made, and the guests are happy. They can also provide suggestions on popular drinks and can customize cocktails to fit the theme of your event.

  2. Choose the Right Bar Setup – Depending on the size of your event and the space available, there are different bar setups to choose from. A mobile bar can be a great option for outdoor events, while a stationary bar may be better suited for indoor events. Executive Beverage has a body of different options and configurations available for 25-10,000 guests. 

  3. Offer a Variety of Drinks – It’s important to have a variety of alcoholic and or non alcoholic drinks available to appeal to different tastes. This includes beer, wine, spirits, and non-alcoholic options such as mocktails or sodas. Executive Beverage has a wide range of fresh flavorful cocktails and mocktails that include Crunchy Hydration™ wellness seltzers and more!

  4. Create Signature Cocktails – Consider creating a signature cocktail for your event. This not only adds a unique touch but can also generate additional revenue or interest in the cause. Executive Beverage can create custom cocktails to wow your guests and drive awareness and fundraising.

  5. Don’t Forget About Glassware – The right glassware can enhance the overall bar experience. Consider renting glassware from Executive Beverage that fits your event’s theme or look and makes your guests feel classy and valued. 

  6. Have Volunteer Bartenders – If you have volunteers helping with the bar, it’s essential to ensure they are trained on how to properly serve drinks, handle any money or tickets, and deal with difficult situations. Executive Beverage volunteers its bartenders for many causes and you should check with your local beverage pros. 

  7. Follow Legal Requirements – It’s crucial to follow all legal requirements when serving alcohol at a fundraiser. This includes obtaining the necessary permits and licenses, checking IDs, and following all applicable laws and regulations. Executive Beverage can guide you the whole way through with retired 20 year VAABC special agents on the team. 

  8. Consider Donating Proceeds – To make your fundraiser bar experience even more meaningful, consider donating a portion of the proceeds to a related charity or cause.

  9. Provide Snacks or Food – Snacks such as chips, nuts, or pretzels can help balance out the alcohol and keep guests satisfied.

  10. Keep the Bar Area Clean and Organized – A clean and organized bar area not only looks professional but also helps to ensure that the bartenders can work efficiently. Your Executive Beverage mobile bar professionals understand the importance and can ensure a clean organized space at all times. 

By following these tips, you can create a memorable and successful fundraiser bar experience. And for a stress-free and professional bar service, consider hiring a mobile bartender and renting bar and glassware from a trusted provider like Executive Beverage.
