Frequently asked questions for your Hens Party

How many cocktails can I choose for my hens party?


Upon booking you get to choose your top 10 from a menu of 25 cocktails, but that's not to say the Mixologist won't make some of the others along with your top 10. And they're served continuously for the duration of the event. Once you book, we give you access to our hen's party cocktail menu to choose your cocktails. And the menu includes all the favourites; Daiquiris, Margaritas, Espresso, Martinis and more! The exception to this is the cocktail classes. With our cocktail class events, you get to choose one of three menus. Once you have chosen your menu, "Cocktailology" placemats are sent out to you for your cocktail class.




What games are in the hens party games pack?


The games in our complimentary hen's party games pack are 4 games exclusive to The Cocktail Queen. They have been designed and branded by The Cocktail Queen and only revealed to you once you book. They are interactive fun games that includes 2 team games and 2 solo games that involve the guests interacting with the bride. The games include the instructions and all the games cards and inclusions to play the games. The pack is complimentary so everyone receives a pack upon booking. It is sent directly to the nominated address on the booking form when you book. Our staff do not host the games. It is up to you or perhaps a hunky topless waiter to do so at the hen's party! Prizes are not included with any of our packages.




Can I choose my topless waiter or stripper?


The quick answer is 'no'. But we do guarantee a hunky hot stripper or topless waiter from Magic Men. The Cocktail Queen has worked with Magic Men Australia for over 10 years who waiters and strippers are reliable, entertaining and professional. In peak season the demand for hens party packages is unbelievable with Cocktail Queen undertaking up to 12 hens party's on a Saturday night in Melbourne alone. The rostering of mixologists, waiters, strippers is an 'artform' to say the least, and by removing preference it ensures everyone gets a waiter and/or stripper at their event. If you want to choose your waiter or stripper you need to book your waiter or stripper separately via Magic Men, and book just a standard Essential Cocktai Party with The Cocktail Queen.




How long is a topless waiter for at my hens party and what time can he start?


2 hours. However if you book a hen's party with 40 or more girls we will gladly give you another topless waiter for 2 hours at your event for free! However you will need to ensure that there is 40 or more girls paid and present for at time of final payment. And you will incur a seperate travel fee for the additional topless waiter also. When you complete the online booking form you get to designate the time you want the topless waiter to start his 2 hour shift. It's in our experience to book the topless waiter to start half hour or one hour after cocktail service starts. So if your party starts at 7.00pm, get the topless waiter to start at 7.30pm. This way any late comers to the hen's party don't miss out on the topless waiter experience.

If you decide to book a topless waiter with the mini mixology class keep in mind that if you have him there for the 2 hours during the class, he really will only be standing around looking good - they are not as per RSA requirements allowed to partake in the class. We suggest if you book the topless waiter for a mixology class then get him to arrive 1/2 hour prior to the class finishing, that way he can start serving any additional beverages you may have.

On the day of the event you will get a text message from your topless waiter confirming his arrival time.




How long is the stripper show and what time can he start?


15-20 minutes. When you complete the online booking form you get to designate the time you want the stripper show to start. It's in our experience to book the show at least 2.5 hours into the party. Girls have had a couple of cocktails by then and are definitely in the mood to see a male revue show. If you have booked a mini mixology class with a stripper show, we suggest you book the show for half way through the class. During a mini mixology class, we undertake a re-set of the tables after the first two cocktails are made, which gives the opportunity for games to be played or to watch a show. As mini mixology classes are only 2.5 hours in duration, we advise at booking your stripper show in for 1 hour after class starts. On the day of the event, you will get a text message from the stripper confirming his arrival time.




What is the Puppetry of the Penis show and what time should it start?


The Puppetry of the Penis Show is a full-frontal nude show whereby a man (the puppeteer) performs "body origami" with his male appendage. This show is hillarious and was a hit stage show now nearly 20 years ago in Australia and around the world. The Cocktail Queen has been working with Puppetry Private Parties to bring you this show for now over 10 years. We strongly advise; if you have guests taht easily offend and don't want to partake in viewing of the show then they are more then welcome to "sit the show out". Please also ensure prior to booking this show that you ensure the bride would want this at her hen's party. We are not responsible for any bride leaving her own hen's party because she doesn't want to watch the show. We don't offer refunds for the show post event due to these reasons.

If you have booked a mini mixology class with a Puppetry show we suggest you book the show for half way through the class. During a mini mixology class, we undertake a re-set of the tables after the first two cocktails are made, which gives the opportunity for games to be played or to view the show. As mini mixology classes are only 2.5 hours in duration, we advise at booking your life art class in for 1 hour after class starts.




What is a Life Art class and what time should it start?


The Life Art Show is a full-frontal nude art class. Whereby a man (the puppeteer) undertakes a variety of poses whislt instructing the class to draw. This class is hilarious and our Life Artists are puppeteers from Puppetry Private Parties (who are very comfortable with nudity). The Cocktail Queen has been working with Puppetry Private Parties to bring you this class for now over 10 years. We strongly advise; if you have guests that easily offend and don't want to partake in the class then don't book this package. The class does go for 40 minutes in duration. Please also ensure prior to booking this show that you ensure the bride would want this at her hen's party. We are not responsible for any bride leaving her own hen's party because she doesn't want to undertake a life art class viewing full frontal nudity. We don't offer refunds for the class post event due to these reasons. All art materials are supplied.

If you have booked a mini mixology class with a life art class, we suggest you book the show for half way through the class.

I have guests attending that aren't drinking... is it cheaper for them?


Yes. Its $20 cheaper for mocktails. We provide an array of mocktails on the day for non-drinkers which is a set menu available only on the day of the event for mocktailers to choose mocktails from.




How much space do I need for the Cocktail Class/Flower Crown setup?


You will need a fair amount of space. The setup is quite large so you will need a fair amount of space, an allocated space where if there is spillage by a guest its not going to ruin any carpet. Many hosts set it up on back verandahs, alfresco areas, carports or indoors where flooring is not an issue, because trust us, someone will forget to place the lid on their shaker when shaking and will end up with cocktail mix all over them - funny to see, not so great to clean up for the host. We bring all the tables, table cloths, shakers, glassware etc, so when your guests turn up they are dazzled by the wow factor of the setup!! - It looks great once set up. For flower crown classes we provide chairs also if required. If setup is in an apartment or CBD, please note space may be limited, so check prior.




What food is included in the High Tea package?


The high tea package includes an extensive array of high tea petite sweets including but not limited to lemon meringue, chocolate addictions, fresh fruit tarts, cupcakes, raspberry almondines, berry cheesecakes, caramel and macadamia tart, and heaps more. We also provide a selection of petite quiches. The menu comprises of both gluten free items and standard bakery items. The menu will also alert you to those items containing nuts also. Again you get to choose all this once you book and complete your selection form. The high tea setup kit is normally set up on the day as a buffet help your self style. If you would like a full sit down service with tables and chairs the price is an additional $15 per person.




What are the travel charges?


We can’t expect our staff to travel to and from locations without being compensated. The following travel fees are applicable per service attending the hen's party. So, if you have booked a hunky hens party plus which includes 1 Mixologist, 1 Stripper and 1 Topless waiter then 3 travel charges will apply. If you have a large party whereby we have to supply 2 or more Mixologists only the one travel charge still applies, as our staff are defined as 1 service collectively.

How much should I charge my guests to attend the hens party?


If you are worried that you might not get the minimum number of guests many hens party hosts increase the price per head when they send out the invites to cover this or any additional hens party costs such as decorations etc. If you are catering for 25 girls to attend expect around 18 to rsvp. Final payment is not due until 14 days prior - at the 14 day mark we contact you to confirm how many guests in attendance of which we then adjust the invoice so you can pay. We accept credit card or direct deposit. All credit card payments incur a $3.90 processing fee.




How much is the deposit to book and do you hold dates?


The deposit to book in and secure your date and team for your hen's party is $200.00. We absolutely do not hold dates without a deposit. Our packages are in high demand and we take bookings for all events nearly 2 years in advance. If you enquire and don't book immediately and wait until closer to the date, we can't guarantee a team will be available for your designated date. Your deposit secures all associated services with your hen's party package. There is no additional deposit required to book in the flower crown, stripper, topless waiter etc services.




What else do I need to know?


Once you book we will send you a email going over all the final party pointers answering questions such as; where do I set up the bar area? On the Tuesday prior to the weekend of your event we will send you a final confirmation logistics email detailing who is attending, package particulars also. This final confirmation is not sent until the Tuesday prior to your event.
