When you can’t go to a bar, let the bar come to you: The business bringing cocktails right to your doorstep

A mobile van containing different alcohols and cocktailsLiquor Lab Events and Consultancy have run mobile bar opportunities for 6 months, making them prepared for the new strategy.

Local Leeds events company have restrategized to work around Coronavirus.

Liquor Lab Events and Consultancy, a Leeds based business, are offering alcohol and cocktail kit delivery service for those in isolation.

On Friday last week, the government announced that all bars, pubs and restaurants must close in the fight against Coronavirus, with self-isolation and social distancing the most effective way of tackling its spread.

These new measures affected everyone across the country, including Liquor Lab who had to close their Doncaster bar and delay the opening of their upcoming Leeds bar.

While Boris Johnson promised 80% wages to those that would be affected by the closures, the local business decided to pack up and make it mobile.

They are delivering normal stock such as beers and wines, as well as their specialty cocktail kits, which include cocktail mixers and instructions.

Natalie Harrison-Wright, the sales and marketing manager for Liquor Lab, understood that their bar would have to close and they would need to restrategize based on other country’s actions.

She said: “Nothing like this has ever happened before so no one really knew what to do or what to expect, but we knew we would follow suit.”

When providing the delivery service, Liquor Lab make sure they abide by all the health guidelines set out by the government and avoid contact with the customers overall where and when they can.

The Consultancy company have been trading for three years and cater for events like weddings, parties and also provide mobile bars and DJ’s.

If you are interested in learning a new skill during isolation or enjoying a unique cocktail experience from the comfort of your own home, support a small, local business like Liquor Labs Events and Consultancy.
