How Our Mobile Bar Service Works

We work with the best caterers in Northern Michigan to deliver Susie Q to every event with professional bartenders and a unique bar setup. We work with some caterers who carry liquor liability insurance (which means they can serve alcohol at events) but do not have liquor licenses (which means hosts purchase alcohol themselves). This option can save our customers money, while still allowing them to provide a fun and memorable experience for their guests.

We also work with a caterer that does have a liquor license, and can handle all aspects of beverage service at an event - from procuring to serving drinks - for one flat fee. This is a great option for customers looking for a fully integrated, seamless experience. Plus, you only pay for what you drink, and don’t have to worry about either under-buying or over-buying the alcohol for your event.

Want the space, but not the service that goes with it? In appropriate circumstances, we rent out Susie Q to event planners customers who want to use the camper but provide their own bartending service.
