Neptune Bars are a new event bars business set up by Mat Butler, who has had over 20 years experience in bar and restaurant management.
We can set up bars in village halls, marquees, or in private homes for any type of event, regardless of size.
We can provide bars for weddings, private parties and corporate events.

Neptune Bars have free standing Black, White or Clear Varnished bars for your event, but we can also supply LED and stainless steel bars for an additional fee, subject to the size of event.

We predominately work across Kent, but will travel further afield for larger events. We do not charge a fee to hire our bars, although this will depend on the number of guests.

We offer full pay bars or you can place a pre agreed sum behind the bar for your guests. We accept cash and debit/credit cards on all of our bars.

When booking with Neptune Bars, we arrive at your venue with full refrigeration, large stocks of beers, spirits, and soft drinks, set up the bar and run the whole event for you. Our staff will serve your guests for the time period you requested, providing all glassware, ice, garnishes etc to make your event a memorable one. At the end of the party, we will remove all of our waste from the site, leaving it as clean as it was when we arrived.

Neptune Bars will take care of all the legal requirements, including licenses and are fully insured against most eventualities.

We do request a £25 booking fee, which guarantees you the date of your choice and provides for the alcohol license.

Mat from Neptune Bars helped make our wedding Happily Ever After party a great success. I was planning the event from the USA so all our correspondence was via email. Mat always replied quickly and was very easy to communicate with. I wanted certain glasses for the toast and he was able to source these for me at a very reasonable price. He arrived in good time to set up his well stocked bar and then quickly cleared up at the end of the evening. I had many compliments throughout the evening on the brilliant bar. Mat and his staff could not do enough to make sure everything ran smoothly and I would not hesitate in recommending him for your next event. Thanks Mat, much appreciated.

Matt was very helpful and because we wanted an open bar suggested a per head price which was very reasonable. Our guests were very pleased with the quality and the variety of drinks that were available. Highly recommended.

"I cannot recommend this company enough.
From the moment I spoke to Matthew about booking to the moment he left the venue it was 100% professionalism & it was so easy to book.
The drink prices were very reasonably & the range of drinks were really good, all premium products.
Everyone at the party commented how good the bar was & how polite Mat & his staff were. At one point Mat was even seen walking around collecting plates & helping tidy up.
A real honest great company. I will not hesitate to use again."

Mat provided our hire bar for our wedding reception on 13/11/21 and we couldn't have asked for better. From the moment we booked in with Mat, it was clear he is a professional and is very knowledgeable about all things bar related. We had made a few enquiries with other hire bars before coming across Neptune Bars and in comparison to what others could offer, Neptune were by far the best for value, professionalism and overall customer service. Mat couldn't be more helpful with any requests we had and he had some lovely touches to his business, such as providing free soft drinks for the children, which all of our friends and family were super impressed with and grateful for. Mat was super responsive when contacting him and he is so personable. He met with us a few days before the reception to introduce himself and go through any special requests we had. The moment we left our meeting with him, my husband and I agreed we felt we were in excellent hands and that proved to be the case on the night too. Thank you very much Mat, you helped make our wedding celebrations so special and we'll be recommending you to anyone and everyone!



  • How does the open bar work?

    Clients can select a pre agreed limit for their guests and we will run the bar until that spend level is reached, then revert to a standard pay bar. Client's can increase the limit at any time during the event.
