FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS
How much does it cost to hire Huey?
We have different packages to suit a range of events, let us know what you are planning, and we’ll send through our package inclusions and associated costs.
Can we make changes to the packages?
Absolutely! We want to help make your special event perfect, and will tailor packages to suit your specific needs.
Do we need power on site?
We do need access to power, however if it is not available, we can arrange a generator for you.
Do you serve coffee?
We certainly do! Huey is fitted out with a beautiful Expobar coffee machine, and we purchase our freshly roasted beans from Sydney based micro roaster Kingdom Coffee. Who doesn’t love the smell of freshly ground coffee!? Ask about our coffee package when you book..
How much experience do you have?
Mack and Laura have both worked in bars and restaurants for well over 10 years., gathering a healthy range of skills and expertise along the way!
Our event is on public land, is that okay?
Yes absolutely! On the Northern Beaches, if you have approval for your event already, we come under the banner of ‘caterers’. If your event is in another area, you simply need to obtain relevant permission/permits from council. We can help point you in the right direction.
Do I really need the cocktail package?
Of course not! But we can assure you that you and your guests will be blown away by our hand crafted cocktails. They are like the cherry on top of an already magical event!
We don’t live in Sydney, can we still book with you?
Yes, definitely! We love nothing more than travelling to new places! There is however a travel fee for destinations outside of Sydney, to cover fuel and maintenance costs.
Do you have public liability insurance?
We sure do!
How long does it take to set up?
It depends which package you choose, but it usually takes about an hour to set up. We arrive approximately 2 hours prior to the start of your event just to be sure, don’t worry though, your time frame only begins when the drinks start flowing!
Does Huey come styled?
Huey has a beautiful flower garland and a few other accessories of his own, however if you’d prefer, we can collaborate with you or your florist/event stylist to ensure he looks exactly how you want him to!
How do we secure a booking?
A 50% deposit (non-refundable) needs to be made within 7 days of receiving your service agreement. The final amount is due no later than 7 days prior to your event.
What if we need to cancel?
In the unfortunate event that you need to cancel your booking within 30 days of your event, a fee of 25% (of the total cost) will be payable. Cancellations within 7 days forfeit full payment.
What if the weather is bad?
Huey comes along rain, hail or shine!
We will do our best to accommodate your needs on the day, but unfortunately we cannot offer refunds due to wet weather.
Power (generator available at additional cost)
Travel costs for weddings & events over 100kms, and picnics over 50kms from Sydney
Why isn’t alcohol included?
We don’t hold a liquor license and therefore are not permitted to purchase alcohol to sell to you.. This also negates the middle man mark-up you often incur when purchasing through a third party.
We can, however, arrange collection (for a nominal fee) of your alcohol if you order and pay for it online!
How much alcohol will we need to purchase?
This is a very good question, and while we don’t know your specific guests and their drinking habits, we can make some general recommendations based on numbers. But, as a general rule, you’d rather have too much than not enough. Don't forget, if you do over cater, you can always return it!
