Frequently Asked Questions

Simply put, there is just something so deserving and A-list feeling about a professional being present to serve your guests. Afford them this simple luxury and pamper your guests.

The bar often serves as the main focal point and gathering site of any event. Therefore, regardless of your event type, may it be a company launch party or a wedding, our staged set-up provides a prominent landing-site for an extension of your branding and/or theme. Another fantastic, yet overlooked benefit of a physical mobile bar, is that it frequently serves as a neutral meeting ground for unaccompanied guests or guests who are slower to mingle with the crowd. Bartenders are proficient in introducing guests and creating a cohesive and equal atmosphere. Afterall, the ultimate goal of the host is to create an atmosphere in which all guests feel comfortable, respected, and welcomed.

The devil is in the details. The beauty of a mobile bar service is that it alleviates the host of the miniscule, often overlooked details that all add up to the big picture. By hiring a mobile bar service, you are hiring professionals who have a trained eye for spotting gaps in service. These gaps in service could include unaddressed dietary restrictions. Other gaps may present themselves in a gravely flawed estimate of how much liquor to purchase for the event. Aside from spotting gaps in service, mobile bar professionals will flood you with an astronomical inventory of inspiration, enthusiasm, and knowledge.

Just as our extensive cocktail menu and growing fleet would suggest, variety is the spice of life when it comes to The Hudson Sidecar Co. We happily service events ranging from the Big Day to engagement parties, bridal and baby showers and sprinkles, retirement parties, kids’ birthday bashes, graduation parties, brand launch parties, holiday parties, NYE kick-offs, Super Bowl Sundays, and any excuse to host a good time! Each of our rigs offer their own unique strengths for various event settings.

In compliance with NYS liquor laws, we may not provide the liquor. This includes any beer, wine, cider, liquor or liqueurs. What we do provide is unparalleled service from inquiry to breakdown, and an atmosphere reminiscent of your favorite, lush brick-and-mortar establishment. All alcohol must be provided by the venue or by our clients. Not to worry, you will be armed with a specialized shopping list based off of your event’s needs. For festivals and public gatherings, we may apply for NYSLA-issued permits for by-the-glass service.

Of course! While we had a ball curating our Libations List, we are happy to honor our clients’ unique interests and event needs. This includes customized cocktails, mocktails, sangrias, beer shandies, and mimosa mixers. Let’s work together and create magic!

Worry no more; we come bearing General and Liquor Liability insurance. A custom-tailored policy will be drawn up for your event’s needs.
