FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS
Frequently asked questions
Does The Roaming Speakeasy have a Liquor License?
Yes, we have a Maine State Catering Liquor License and can buy the alcohol for your event if it is within the state of Maine. With this we can host Open Bar, Cash Bars and Split Service options. Starlite Caterings’ bar service can serve from one of our signature bars or at built in bars at amazing venues throughout the state.
What is The Roaming Speakeasy Co.?
Where are you located, and will you travel?
Do you provide bartending services without the Horsebox speakeasy?
Yes,absolutely. Our bartending team is available for all types of events even without the trailer, especially during the cold Maine winters! Our full service packages all include one of our signature bars, but there are many venues with awesome built in bars that we love to serve from.
Can we bring our own alcohol?
Yes. When you provide the alcohol, our speakeasy is available to rent for your event. This would be a dry hire only. The cost to rent one of our unique mobile bars on a Saturday in peak season is $875. You can than hire a TIPS trained and insured bartender from your caterer or have another bar service/ venue serve from our little bar. We love having our industry friends step behind the bar.
My venue has their own liquor license, does that mean we can't use you?
While we cannot serve alcohol from our liquor license, your venue can serve from our little bar when you rent it from us. You would need to first inquire with the venue, but in this case you could rent one of our signature bars and have the venue and its bar staff serve their alcohol from our little horsebox or prosecco cart.
What type of events do you serve?
What are the technical requirements for the bar?
Our horsebox bars are 11 feet long including the hitch, 7.5 wide and 8ft tall. We can fit just about anywhere outdoors and just need 8 ft clearance with a large overhead door to fit indoors. There are so many great spaces that we can pull our little bars inside.
How early should we book with you?
As soon as possible! We offer a select amount of full service dates during our busy season. Those dates are listed under our availabilty section on this site. They will book quickly, especially for certain dates. Thats why we bulit more than one mobile bar!
