A sunny New York City day combined with a scenic waterfront location would make just about anyone smile - but a proper bar set-up is essential when working at an outdoor catered event. It's that feeling of really being prepared when the guests start to arrive that inspires confidence to start the event on the right foot.
Here are our Top 3 Tips for Proper Bar Set Up For Catered Events:
1) Place a small bucket or bus tub with water in it for yourself.
This way you can easily rinse things like mixing tins, wash rags, spoons, etc. Just make sure you change out the water regularly.
2) Keep a close eye on ice.
Generally if you are about half way out of ice, its time to fill up. Keep in mind that it can take a while to retrieve or receive the ice. That’s why it’s better to prepare way in advance.
3) Standardize the set up.
With a catered bar, you usually have more limited space and supplies. The last thing you want when you’re bar catering a busy event is to waste time looking for vodka when someone orders a martini.
Cheers to a festive spring and summer event season - filled with sunshine, smiles, and happy guests!
