Frequently Asked Questions
Q: Do you provide the alcohol?
A: No. We (MMB) legally cannot provide alcohol with your booking under Montana liquor licensing laws. With your booking, MMB provides everything else you need for your bartending service.
Q: Where are you based out of and how far will you travel?
A: We are based out of our ranch in East Helena, MT. We service the immediate Helena area for a small delivery/setup fee. We will travel within a couple hour radius, however, give us a shout if you are further out than that. We have to charge $1.5/mile travel/delivery fee for any location greater than 20 miles away.
Q: Do you carry insurance? What kind of permits will I need for my event?
A: Yes, we carry general liability insurance. One thing we feel strong about is that you consider purchasing ‘event insurance’ for your event. This protects you and your location. We would ask that you add us to that policy for everyone’s protection. Typically, these short-term policies are relatively inexpensive. $300-400, as well as liquor liability insurance. We can provide copies of our insurance policies to your venue upon request.
For any permits that may be needed it is the clients responsibility to secure those. Generally, if your event is held on private property you will not need to secure any permits. If you have any questions, please email us!
Q: What are the dimensions of the trailer?
A: The Cross-Eyed Cowboy is approximately 8.5 feet wide, 9 feet tall, and 15 feet long.
The Wine Glass is 8 feet wide, 8 feet tall, and 11 feet long
Q: What deposit is required?
A: We require a 50% deposit upon booking. The remaining 50% balance is due one week prior to the event. Bookings canceled within 90 days of the event are not eligible for a refund of your deposit unless the MMB secures another event for your date. In the event of inclement weather we will do our best to accommodate if you wish to reschedule. The client is responsible for any outdoor tents if necessary. MMB does not provide any tents or other gear in the event of rain. If you decide to add on additional items to your package or reservation after you made a deposit, no worries, just contact us!
We accept cash, checks, or credit card payments via our online invoices with Square.
Q: Are the MMB’s Covid-19 compliant?
A: The Cross-eyed cowboy’s ear just won’t hold a face mask on, however, each bar will be cleaned and disinfected after each use. You may want to add hand sanitizer/wipes, and what-ever else makes you feel comfortable for you and your guests.
Q: How much will it cost for me to rent a bar?
A: If you request a quote here, we will contact you to let you know!
