There are several ways to structure the bar.
a)an open premium bar for 3 hours at $24.25 per guest over 21 PLUS 7% state tax and 20% house service charge. This includes 7 – 10 premium liquors; house wines (merlot,
cabernet, pinot grigio, chardonnay, and white zinfandel) ,a light beer and an imported beer OR. Open WELL bar, using house liquor, wines, and beer.
b) a cash bar – all guests pay for their own drinks for the duration of the event.
c) Hosted bar – where you pre-pay an amount of money towards the bar and the bartender keeps track of the drinks served until there is only about $50.00 left – at that point you can choose to add more money (which we will collect from you at the end of the reception), or you can choose not to add money and once the money you had placed toward the bar is gone it becomes a cash bar. NOTE: 7% State tax and 20% Service charge is deducted from the amount put towards the bar, and the drinks are subtracted from that balance.
d) a consumption bar – the bartender keeps a tally of all drinks served and we present you with a bill at the end of the night. Beer is $4.00, wine is $5.00, and liquor drinks are $7.00. State tax of 7% and a 20% service charge will be added to the total.
You can arrange to have a consumption bar with a CAP on it as well – a maximum limit in sales you would like placed on it.
e) a consumption bar with just wine and beer paid for by you, all liquor drinks are paid for by the guests. (same tax and service charge applied.)
We also offer welcome /signature cocktails (available by the gallon) – such as a mojito, lemon-drop punch with a sugared rim, margaritas on the rocks, or maybe a rum punch – for you to offer your guests; a delightful personal touch!
*** With an open, hosted, or consumption bar we do not allow guests to have shots, doubles, or multi-liquor drinks unless the client has given permission in the case of a hosted or consumption bar choice. ***
