As a wedding bartender, you keep the party going with your delicious drinks, serving the bride and groom and their guests on their big day.

You have the drinks, you have the glasses, you have all your supplies to keep the party going strong, but wait! You’re missing something: bartender insurance! The last thing you want to do is run your business without insurance.

What Is Bartender Liquor Liability Insurance?

Let’s start at the beginning. Bartender liquor liability insurance is designed to protect bartending businesses from claims that could cost hundreds of thousands of dollars. This type of insurance covers bartenders who bartend at events such as weddings and parties, not brick-and-mortar bars. 

With a base policy that includes general and liquor liability as well as tools and equipment coverage, bartenders can choose which FLIP coverage is best for their business. Bartenders have the option of liquor liability only (if they already have a FLIP general liability policy) or general liability plus liquor liability.

Bartender liquor liability includes general liability, liquor liability, and inland marine (also known as equipment coverage).

In addition to these coverages, bartenders can also include event liquor coverage only or event general liability plus liquor coverage, depending on the needs of your business:

  • Event liquor provides one to three days of coverage liquor liability.
  • Event general plus liquor coverage includes one to three days of coverage, which includes liquor liability, and general liability.
