You Asked, We Answered
WHAT DOES NJAC STAND FOR?
NJAC stands for Not Just Any Cocktail. This is because the company started as a high end cocktail bar, innovating and creating the most intriguing and exciting cocktails. The name caught on, and our clients demanded more, so we added another 70 or so products behind the bar, including draught beers, gins, wine, whiskey, rum and a wide range of mixers and became NJAC Event Bars.
HOW CAN YOU OFFER FREE BAR HIRE AND STAFF HIRE FOR EVENTS?
If you have 75 guests or more, then we are delighted to offer free bar hire and staff hire. We can afford to do this for a number of reasons; 1) We have complete confidence in our delicious products and amazing staff, 2) All of our bars have an achievable minimum spend which mitigates our risk and 3) We serve at so many events in the year, that we can afford not to charge for some of them.
WHAT IS A MINIMUM SPEND AND HOW DOES IT WORK?
This is an industry wide calculation, designed to ensure that a bar isn’t hired for free and then forgotten about. It is security for us to ensure we cover the cost of set up, perishables, staff etc. If the minimum spend isn't achieved then you are required to pay 50% of the shortfall. (Many bars ask for the full shortfall to be paid but that implies that are bar generates 100% profit, and we don't think that's fair!)
DO YOU HAVE A VEGAN MENU AND WHAT'S YOUR CARBON FOOTPRINT LIKE?
The answer is yes and tiny! We have worked very hard to ensure that all of our bar menus are entirely vegan friendly. We have learned a lot and made some simple changes, such as stocking foaming agents made from aquafaba, as oppose to egg whites.
We are also delighted to be using biodegradable straws and disposable cups, all made from plant starch (not paper!)
WHEN DO YOU SET UP AND PACK DOWN?
We aim to be flexible with our set up and pack down times, as we do understand that each venue has their own rules for access, before and after events. On most occasions we set up the day before and pack down on the night or the next day, we will have a consultation before your event and put a plan in place that suits you and your venue.
I CAN'T FIND MY FAVOURITE DRINKS ON YOUR MENU, CAN YOU ADD THEM?
We absolutely can! As long as we can get hold of the product(s) we can stock it for your event. The same goes for cocktails; we love to create and design drinks for clients and events. We really do mean create; we have themed our cocktails by colour, garnish, glass type and even included names and logos on cocktails!
