Liquor Liability Insurance
We offer proof of liquor liability insurance. Please contact us via email at barservice@hsa.net at least 3 days in advance of your event for us to fax or email it to you. Our insurance insures only our bartenders, wait-staff, and other HSA personnel. We cannnot claim additional insured parties.

No Guarantee of Job Placement
 During Holiday Season or Last Minute Events
During holiday season (Halloween, Thanksgiving, Christmas, Cinco de Mayo, and graduation season in May) we may be unable to accommodate your request for bartenders or waitstaff. If we are not able to fulfill your job, we will let you know at least 24 hours in advance and give you a full refund. Please understand that our bartenders are students, so often times they are unavailable to work on holidays. 

We also cannot guarantee staffing for events placed within a week of the event date since our students need time to adjust their schedules. In these cases, you will be refunded for your event. 

Minimum Job Placement

All requests must be billed for a minimum of two hours per student. Jobs less than the minimum hourly length will be billed for the applicable minimum. 

Insufficient Staffing

In the case that we cannot find adequate staffing for your event, you will be informed at a minimum of 72 hours before your event and be issued a full refund.
