Geo Underwriting case study: Golf theme bar


Geo Underriting case study:

Themed bars are on the rise across the UK; separate from standard wine bars and public houses, these venues have a variety of additional problems for insurance brokers.

A popular rise nationwide has been high-end, retro themed, indoor golf and bar venues including live entertainment; market placement can be a challenge with typical routes to market not having an appetite for this new type of venue model.

Geo Sports, Leisure & Entertainment were approached by to cover a golf theme bar, who required a combined insurance package for casualty and property.

The key risks involved in a venue of this nature are related to customer safety, slips and falls are not uncommon. Bars of this nature can easily lose business if they suffer any lengthy closure or bad publicity, as such EoW, fire and theft of the property are also important risks to be considered.
