1What's included in your services?
At a minimum, our services include one insured bartender specialized in non-alcoholic drinks, menu planning consultation, bar equipment, ice, fine plastic drink ware, black cocktail napkins, stirrers, garnishes, and mixers. Our add-on services include our upscale lounge experience.
2Where are you located?
We are a mobile service based in Jackson, MI. We will travel for your event up to a 50-mile radius. We do not have brick-and-mortar space (yet). Book us for your next event and/or follow us on social media to be in the know about where we’re popping up next.
3Are the drinks you make called mocktails?
We prefer to call them zero-proof cocktails. We do not simply mix juices, sodas, and syrups, which are the traditional ingredients in mocktails. We craft our cocktails using non-alcoholic spirit alternatives.
4What type of products do you use to make your drinks?
We use non-alcoholic spirit alternatives, such as, tequila, rum, bourbon, gin, and non-fermented wine, among others. We personally try what’s available in the market to make sure we serve the best. Our mixers are of the highest quality, and let’s not forget the power of bitters!
5Is your menu limited to cocktails or do you also have alcohol-free/non-alcoholic beer and wine?
Yes, we would love to serve alcohol-free and/or non-alcoholic beer and wine at your event. However, if these products are made using any type of fermentation process, they are subject to liquor licensing laws in the State of Michigan. Therefore, we’re not allowed to buy them directly. In these cases, we help you coordinate the purchase to ensure a smooth experience (subject to surcharge).
6Is there a difference between alcohol-free and non-alcoholic?
Yes. It’s all about the content of alcohol by volume, or ABV. Non-alcoholic drinks can contain up to 0.5% ABV, while alcohol-free drinks contain 0.0% ABV.
7Are your recipes top secret?
Absolutely not! Follow us on social media for recipes and inspiration! If you’re within a 25-mile radius of Jackson, MI, you can order the products we use through our on-line store.
8It's non- alcoholic, so minors can drink it, right?
Zero Bar & Lounge is designed as a social experience for adults. Even though we only use alcohol-free/non-alcoholic products, we do not sell or serve non-alcoholic cocktails to anyone under the age of 21 as we do not endorse or encourage under-age drinking. In addition, many of the non-alcoholic brands we offer do not allow their products to be sold to minors.
9What about pregnant women, can they have non-alcoholic cocktails?
Although our drinks are prepared with products that are generally safe for adults, we always suggest you consult with your doctor for your specific health circumstance. Please note that we offer ready to drink cocktails (cans) that contain ashwagandha, which is not considered safe to be taken during pregnancy.
10Are your drinks safe if I’m in recovery?
For some people, non-alcoholic drinks could be triggering. Electing zero proof cocktails is a very personal choice.
11Do you serve alcoholic drinks too?
We do not. We specialized in alcohol free and non-alcoholic alternatives to make sure they’re 100% fun!
12How much space does your mobile unit need?
For the best experience, the JAMSY needs a clearance height of 9 ft and a flat surface area of 20 ft x 20 ft to allow space for serving guests. The optional lounge experience requires an additional flat surface area of 10 ft x 10 ft.
13My event is outdoors, what if it rains?
Predicting the weather is difficult. We recommend planning for a tent of 20 ft x 20 ft (minimum) with a clearance height of 9 ft to accommodate our mobile unit.
14How much do your services cost?
The cost of our services depends on the location, length of the event, number of guests, and type of drinks to be served. In average, the cost of a two-hour event could range from $12 to $18 per guest. However, we customize every menu and proposal to fit your needs.
