What is Mobile Bartender Insurance?

Mobile bartender liability insurance is designed to protect mobile bartenders—also called freelance, traveling, private, personal, or event bartenders—from risks like damages or injury that can arise from serving or selling alcohol.

As a mobile bartender who serves alcohol at events, parties, or bars, you should carry insurance. Without it, you may be required to pay hundreds of thousands of dollars out of pocket to cover claims against your business, should an alcohol-related accident occur that you could be held liable for.

Our insurance for serving alcohol includes general and liquor liability, as well as other policy options, to provide you with comprehensive insurance that covers the common risks of running an alcohol-serving business.

Claim Examples You Could Face

  1. A patron was served three beers accompanied with three shots of whiskey by an untrained bartender over the course of three hours. He then stopped at an attached liquor store where he purchased a half-pint of whiskey. Upon leaving, the patron drove 500 feet before colliding head-on with a single-passenger vehicle. Both drivers were seriously injured. The case settled for $200,000 with expense costs paid of $19,400.
  2. A woman was served 11 alcoholic beverages by a bartender. After leaving the bar, she got into her vehicle and struck a 22-year-old student who died from her injuries. The student’s family sued and won a $900,000 settlement with an additional $63,000 in incurred expenses.

Questions About Mobile Bartending Service Insurance

Yes. As a business that sells or serves alcohol, you should have liquor liability insurance. Even if you’re not legally required to carry insurance, you could still be found liable to cover expenses that arise from accidents caused by your business or by individuals to whom you served alcohol.

Because it includes general liability coverage, mobile bartender insurance protects against third-party bodily injury, property damage, and advertising personal injury claims that arise from your business operations. With liquor liability coverage, it can also protect your business from claims that arise from accidents caused by individuals you serve alcohol to, especially visibly intoxicated persons and minors. You can also apply additional policy options like cyber liability insurance or assault and battery coverage to add extra coverage for claims according to your business needs.

The cost varies by state and the nature of your business (services offered, gross liquor sales, etc.). For plans including only general and liquor liability coverage, starting rates can be as low as $550 a year or $35.42 a month on average.
