Bar Insurance

Bars and taverns require unique insurance needs, but fortunately, bar insurance is available to help you comply with local laws regulating insurance needs for such establishments, and to help if you need reimbursement after some unexpected costs.

Bar Insurance Policy Features

Most forms of Bar Insurance are actually a combination of four important policies:

  • Business Owner's PolicyThe Business Owner's Policy (BOP) bundles together several policies, including general liability coverage and property insurance. If rowdy patrons are breaking glasses, or people are suing because they fell after having a little too much to drink, this is the policy that will help.
  • Liquor Liability Insurance—If you sell alcohol to someone who's already intoxicated, you're partly responsible for what they do, and you could be held liable for any damage they cause. That's not our opinion; many states have written this provision into law and require bars and taverns to have liquor liability insurance before opening up for business.
  • Umbrella Coverage—The Business Owner's Policy provides the main coverage for your business, but if excessive damage (or a court-ordered payment for damages, in the case of a lawsuit) is involved, umbrella coverage can reimburse you for claims that would normally be difficult or impossible to pay.
  • Worker's Compensation—Finally, the last major part of bar insurance is worker's compensation; in an industry where busy bartenders and wait staff are moving around at high speeds while dealing with customers, the chance of someone falling and getting hurt is higher than anyone would like. This form of insurance provides funds for medical care and wages if an employee gets hurt.

Insurance requirements for bars and taverns vary widely by state, so be sure to ask our a Brownson Insurance Agency, Inc. representative for a bar insurance policy that matches your specific needs.

Thank you so much for your assistance in explaining homeowners insurance when we bought our first house last month.

Brownson Insurance is lucky to have you working there. Thanks so much!!!

How can I thank you enough. Your knowledge and professionalism is awesome. When my father told me to go to Brownson Insurance, I had no idea where he was sending me. That was fifteen years ago, two houses ago, at least four cars ago, and two kids ago. Thanks for going to the registry for me for this latest car swap. I really do appreciate your work with all my “stuff”.

I just want to say that after 30 years of dealing with Humphrey Insurance, I’m glad you’ve been there every step of the way. Your organization of my many properties insurance policies is refreshing. Especially in today’s world of automation, I love being able to pick up the phone and get a caring human voice on the other end. You’re the best! I hope your there for another 30 years.

How do you do it? You wear so many hats when it comes to my many insurance needs and I just feel like I needed to send you a note saying so. I know I can trust your advice when I seek it, and I do often. Cars, a house, kids driving, yikes. You’ve seen it all. Your advice is always spot on. Thanks for being there for me whenever I need you.
