What Type of Bar Insurance is Best for Your Business?

By |June 5th, 2014|Pub Insurance|Comments Off on What Type of Bar Insurance is Best for Your Business?

 

Being in the bar business comes with its own set of unique risks. Imagine if an intoxicated patron decides to start a fight, injuring himself and some innocent bystanders in the process. Or what if a bartender over-serves a customer and that leads to injury? Or what happens when an intoxicated customer refuses to get in a cab and gets in a car accident on the way home? The risks are endless, and the only way to protect your business is with the right bar insurance policy.

While you might already have general commercial liability insurance for your bar, the fact is that it’s woefully inadequate. While it might offer a basic level of protection, it won’t cover property damage of physical injuries that occur as a result of an intoxicated patron.

That’s why it’s important that you invest in a bar insurance policy that’s specifically designed to protect you against the […]
