Bar Insurance in Half Moon Bay, CA and San Mateo County

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 Weller/O'Brien Insurance Services representative for a bar insurance policy that matches your specific needs.

Testimonials

I live in Santa Cruz and work in Half Moon Bay. I decided to go with Weller O'Brien in HMB because it's a smaller town, and I figured they would give me more attention and better service than if I went to someone in Santa Cruz. I wasn't let down. They are always quick to return my calls. I am more then just a policy to them. I've never had an insurance salesman go over a policy like that before. It made me confident that I was with the right group.

Kevin is the best! We have our business insurance with him and we are very happy. His staff is top notch and very helpful. They have a cool new office in downtown HMB, perfect for people that want a face to face in this day in age where so many things are online and impersonal. Thanks for everything Kevin and crew.....we love you.

When looking for homeowners insurance, I checked out several companies. Weller O'Brien by far had the best customer service. Their insurance coverage was comparable to other companies, only much less expensive. Every time I've called I've spoken with Betty, Adam or Kevin directly and all my questions have been answered. They even looked over my auto insurance to make sure that I was fully covered. I would highly recommend them to anyone needing new insurance or wanting to have their current insurance evaluated.
