How the world has changed since our last blog post! Almost every country of the world has been in a global lockdown, and the Coronavirus (COVID-19) pandemic has claimed lives and businesses alike.
We here at Neptune Bars have been living a life reimagined. As you would expect, all of our bookings were postponed, almost overnight, leaving us with plenty of time on our hands to work out where to go from here when all of this is eventually over.
Life in lockdown has, as we suspect is the case for many of you, been frustrating, at times boring and occasionally soul destroying. However, it has also been incredibly productive and it’s given us the time to really take stock and revaluate our offering to our customers. It’s been invigorating to rip apart our business model and piece it back together again, albeit in a slightly different way and we’re delighted to tell you about the changes that we’ll be making, going forward.
Having the time to look - really, properly look - at what we offer has been invaluable and, although we already offer some great options for different types of mobile bar hire and drinks packages, we felt that something was missing.
Going forward, Neptune Bars will be offering a dry hire option, and we will also be expanding our range of bars to include black vinyl, aluminium and LED lit bars. When you book dry hire, that means that you will be able to book a bar, fridges and an accessory pack for all eventualities. All you have to do is buy and serve the drinks yourself.
As well as offering the dry hire, customers will also be able to take advantage of our new glass hire service. The last thing you need to worry about on a special occasion is having to source glassware; at Neptune Bars, we’re now able to take that worry away from you. We will supply the glasses and you will return them to us with the rest of the equipment.* All you have to worry about is whether to pop some raspberries in your prosecco!
We know that our customers find our staff professional, friendly and efficient; however it may not always easy to identify them during the course of an event. Moving forward, all of our staff will be attired in smart new branded uniforms so that you can easily find them if an issue arises or if you just want to get your drink topped up.
We have been working hard behind the scenes to offer an improved, smoother service to our customers, present and future, and we’re confident that these changes will mean that Neptune Bars continues to be a supplier of choice for discerning customers.
