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.
*When a bartender is included in one of our packages, the ice, cups & beverage napkins are included.
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.
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.
We have a variety of bar glasses available for a nominal rental price.
