Will the Butler(s) come to a hired venue/bar?
Yes! Your butler will come to any venue you choose providing that the venue itself has given full permission for your butler to attend. Typically a house/flat, hen houses, cottages and private rooms in bars are popular venues for butlers to attend.
What will happen on the day of my booking?
Your Butler will be in contact with you on the day of your booking to reconfirm the time, location, and answer any questions you may have.
The Butler(s) will arrive 5 – 10 minutes prior to their booked time and will telephone you once they are outside, keeping their arrival a surprise.
Upon arrival, the Butler(s) will require a room to get changed in and be ready for a prompt start.
What will my Butler wear?
Your Butler(s) will be ready to serve at your event wearing a collar, bow tie, cuffs and a bottom revealing apron.
You can request shorts or suit trousers to be worn.
What will my Butler do?
Make the most of your Butler(s) who will be on hand to meet and greet guests, serve any drinks/canapés, mix up cocktails, organise group photos and they can also partake and host party games. Our Naked Butlers have some great party game ideas they can organise or assist with ones you already planned for the night.
Once I’ve booked can I change the time of my booking?
Yes, once you have booked time changes can be made up to 2 weeks prior to the booking. Any amendments to bookings made within the 2 weeks can not be guaranteed.
If we haven’t answered your question in our above FAQ’s then please do not hesitate to contact us.
Does he come with a cocktail shaker and tray?
Unfortunately, you will need to provide your butler with any cocktail equipment such as a cocktail shakers, alcohol and trays! However, our butlers are great with their hands so they can improvise with any materials you already have at your venue!
Can we accessorise our Butler?
Absolutely, you can accessorise your butler according to your party theme or setting! If you wish to provide accessories, you can do so at your own expense.
Does he need somewhere to change?
Yes, your butler will arrive at your accommodation fully clothed and will need a room to get changed into his cheeky butler attire. He will also need a safe place to put his belongings.
Can we have more than one butler?
Of course! You can have as many butlers as you require! Besides, two butlers are double the fun! We usually recommend one butler for 10-15 guests and then two butlers for 15 plus guests! However the choice is yours!
Can my butler play party games?
Indeed! Our butlers will come prepared with hen party games so can recommend some to you or they can participate in any games that you have already organised!
Can my butler stay on at the party?
We can look at booking your butlers in for extra hours, however this is not something we can guarantee as our butlers are usually on back to back jobs. Therefore, we recommend that you book your butlers for longer in advance!
Can we touch our butlers?
Yes, appropriate touching of your butler whilst taking photos with him, playing party games and getting him to serve drinks is absolutely fine, however please do respect all our members of staff.
