Hostology Investigates: Outsourcing your bar

31 May 2024

Do you manage your wedding and event bars in-house or outsource? And what can you expect from outsourcing? We spoke with Ross at The Watering Hole about all things outsourcing and how their bar service is upgrading the wedding venue experience across the UK, delivering a bespoke in-house drinks service tailored for wedding couples and full of advantages for venues.

First off, outsourcing your bar should also mean an enticing commission scheme, complemented by professionally trained event managers and bar teams who expertly handle each wedding, taking the pressure off your team. Ross points to how a good supplier like The Watering Hole can offer a seamless experience; managing everything from glassware provision to licensing, bespoke menus to custom-built bar installations that perfectly match a venue’s unique style. The Watering Hole manages the entire drinks service and all the drink-related communications as standard; from initial booking to the final toast on the wedding night, meaning minimal effort from a busy venue.

It’s also important to look to work with a supplier that shares your venue and your customer’s values, for example around sustainability. The Watering Hole is a carbon-neutral business, striving to achieve B Corp certification and committed to environmental responsibility.

With a diverse array of venues, many in the Hostology network, already reaping the benefits of their premium, hassle-free service, The Watering Hole is clearly doing a lot right! They would be happy to discuss how their practical and elegant solution can help your venue, including a commission scheme to provide an extra income stream throughout the wedding season.
