Bar - Beer, Wine & Alcohol

What you need to know about the bar

 

How it works

You may bring in your own beer, wine, or alcohol. You may bring in the bar drinks of your choice and you will also need to bring in your own mixers such as Coke, Sprite, lemons, limes, salt, etc. All bar offerings must be served by our bartenders from behind the bar due to building insurance considerations. Beer, wine, or alcohol cannot be set out on the guest tables. Any bottles of alcohol or beer that are brought into the Chateau must be served from behind the bar. At the end of the night, all that's left is to pack up all full or partial bottles & mixers you brought, and take them with you. Your bartender will empty the bar trash and clean the bar, as well.

 

Breaking it down

Beer

  • Many of our party hosts choose to purchase kegs of beer for their guests, as this is the most economical* way to host a bar. Get any of the Celebration Packages and the coolers, ice, cups, and napkins are provided. A nice benefit of using the packages is that you will not need to worry about how much to buy and what to do with the items that you don't use.
  • Serving your beer in bottles or cans are always welcome. We have galvanized tubs available to hold the ice and beer. We serve the bottles or cans from those tubs, as well.

Wine

  • Bring your favorite bottles or boxes of wine and we will gladly serve.

Alcohol

  • Bring in whatever you prefer, but remember that you must also provide the needed mixers and garnish. Any alcohol that guest may bring must also be stored and served from behind the bar.

*When a bartender is included in one of our packages, the ice, cups & beverage napkins are included.

PLUS

Frozen Drink Machine

We have a frozen drink machine* that makes great frozen margaritas. The frozen drink machine rents for $95.00. You supply the alcohol and margarita mix and we will serve your drinks until your mix runs out. For $135.00, we will provide the machine and unlimited margarita mix. You will just need to bring the tequila, lime & salt. Our margarita machines were purchased to operate comfortably with our electrical circuits.

*Some margarita machines provided by off premise venders have large power requirements that cause our circuit breakers to constantly break throughout the night. The repeating loss of power causes these machines to never freeze the margaritas properly. The result is margaritas that aren't frozen and a disappointing frozen drink experience. We really suggest that you rent our margarita machine since we know that our margarita machine doesn't throw the breakers and you'll have for less worries.

 

Bartenders

The serving of alcohol by our bartenders is a requirement, not an option. This is one of the few requirements we have and is due to our building insurance policy requirements. Bartenders are charged at the rate of $38.00 per hour.

  • One Bartender is the minimum number of bartenders that you'll need for a total of 6 hours per party.
  • A bartender's usual time breakdown is: 1 hour to set up, 4 hours of service, and 1 hour of cleanup = 6 total hours of bartending time.
  • The bartender has a corkscrew for wine and a bottle opener for beer.
  • One bartender can normally provide adequate service for up to 150-175 guests.
  • Bartenders are attentive, professional and TABC licensed.
