  • Do you supply alcohol?
    We do not supply you with alcohol as liquor laws in Canada don't allow the sale of alcohol from a mobile anything. However we do supply everything else for you to have the time of your life at your event! One major bonus of purchasing your own booze is that you are saving a lot of money by avoiding the premium charged by venues and buying from the same place they would! You are also able to customize the bar exactly how you want it! Mojitos all day every day anyone?
  • What about insurance?
    Everything that comes with The Travelling Tow Bar is insured. We have General Liability and Liquor Liability insurance, and all our bartenders are Smart Serve certified as well. All you might have to worry about is getting a Special Occasion Permit (if your event is in a public place), or your own event insurance (PAL) if you'd like, we can help you apply for that too!
  • How many people can you serve?
    How many do you have in mind? But in all seriousness with a four tap draft system, a couple of extra talented 'drink slingers' and a few gorgeous satelite bars, the sky is the limit! Glenda herself with the two bartenders included in every package are comfortable serving up to 200 people, more bartenders means more people can be accomodated. Roy has a maximum of 150 guests that he is comfortable getting drinks out to! Depending on the service level you would like we may require a coupe extra sets of hands to keep everything running smoothly.
  • How big are Glenda and Roy?
    Glenda is 15ft long, 7 ft wide and 8ft tall, Roy is 13ft long, 7 ft wide and 9 ft talll. Small enough to fit into most backyards, large enough to fit us! Neither are a huge fan of stairs and they do need a clear level spot to rest for the event. If you have any concerns about the location you have in mind, please don't hesitate to get in touch and we can try to make it work.
  • How far do you travel?
    We service Caledon, Newmarket, King City, Barrie, Muskoka, Vaughan, York, Richmond Hill, Markham, Missisauga, Simcoe, Kitchener, Waterloo, Oshawa, Toronto, the Greater Toronto Area (GTA), and surrounding areas! We are more than happy to make a longer journey to get to you if none of those places look like home. The first 50kms of any round trip are free and after that we charge $0.80 /km. If you are interested in working with us, and you are located a bit farther away please contact us for rates!
  • How far in advance do I have to book?
    We are currently booking up summer 2019, send us an email and we will let you know if your date is available. If it isn't and you would still like to hire us we can work with you to figure out the best solution! Weekends are our most popular days but we do offer discounted weekday and off season rates!
  • Do I need to put down a deposit?
    We do require a retainer of 30% in order to secure the date.
  • How much does an event cost?
    Our services typically range from $1200.00 to $4,000.00 without alcohol included for events with between 50 and 400 people. We do realise no one event is ever the same and our prices do reflect that. For a free custom quote for your event, just fill out our online form on our GET A QUOTE page. Or if you'd like us for a smaller intimate event, photo shoot, promotional event or "just because", please don't hesitate to email us at It's free, we love hearing from you, and we can work with you to make your vision come true at a price that makes sense.
  • Do I need to get a Special Occasions Permit (SOP)?
    You will need to get a Special Occasions Permit (SOP) only if you are holding your event on public property (E.g. Town Hall, Church, Event Venue, etc.). If you are holding the event on private property (E.g. Backyard, Cabin, Property, Farm, etc.) a SOP is not required. For more information and to apply online, please visit We are always happy to help with the application process if needed!
  • Don't see your question?
    Send us an email at, chat with us about an idea you have, make an entire event around your favourite beverage, describe an event you want to make come to life! Thats the stuff we love to do, after all, we made this bar out of a beat up old trailer that we didnt think would make the drive home.
