  • The one and only Buck N Bar converted horse float bar for the night,
  • Ice for drinks,
  • Plastic cups.

Not included:

What areas do you service?

Buck N Bar is based in Townsville and available for hire across northern Queensland. Whether you’re located north, south or west of Townsville, 1, 3 or 8 hours away, we’d love to discuss your mobile bar hire needs.

Do you provide glassware?

Unfortunately, we do not provide glassware to avoid charging breakage fees. We do however provide plastic cups.

Do I need to provide my own kegs?

Our mobile bar service is a dry bar, meaning that the cost doesn’t include any beverages. You can either source your own kegs to stock our bar, or, arrange for us to pick up what you need.

If you’d like to make your own mixes, we do have a limited number of empty kegs that we can gas and chill for you once you’ve provided your mixes. We will invoice you separately for any kegs we purchase on your behalf. 

How many kegs do I need?

Our bar can store up to six 50 litre kegs each connected to an individual tap for easy, self-serve access.

How many kegs you need will depend on how much you expect your guests to drink.

Can you keep my drinks nice and cold?

Yes we can!

If you have pre-arranged for Buck N Bar to bring your drinks to you, we will ensure your kegs are chilled. If you have sourced your own kegs, we do recommend chilling them if possible – this helps our iced cold room stay colder for longer.

How much time is required for set up & pack down?

We allow approximately 1 hour to set up our service and to pack down. This time is included with the cost of each hire.

Do you clean up?

When you hire Buck N Bar, you are hiring the bar – not wait staff and cleaning staff. Please ensure you have provided waste disposal facilities for your guests. 

Can I hire your bar overnight?

Given a lot of the events we service are in the afternoon, the cost of our bar hire includes overnighters. 

Do you need power access?

No. Our cold room keg storage system ensures that your drinks stay cool without the need for power access.

How big is the horse float bar?

Buck N Bar is a renovated standard horse float measuring approximately 3.8 metres in length by 2 metres wide. In terms of height, the bar needs about 2.3 metres of room to move. 

How do I pay for hire?

In order to secure your event booking, we require a 50% deposit, with the final amount due no later than two weeks prior to your scheduled event.

Payments can be made via direct bank transfer.

Do you have a cancellations policy?

If you need to cancel your booking, we require a minimum of two weeks notice before the scheduled event date. Cancellations must be submitted in writing via email.

If you submit your event cancellation request within the two week period before your scheduled event, your 50% deposit will not be refunded.

Cancellations outside of this timeframe will be honoured with a full refund. 

Do you have insurance?

Yes, Buck N Bar has public liability. However, depending on where you event is to be held, you may require other certificates – it is your responsibility to talk to the event venue to determine what certificates, if any, are required.

What if my event is in a park?

For events in a park or public space, it is your responsibility to to take care of any necessary bookings or required licenses/applications. We will need to ensure there is adequate access for our horse float.
