For your bar - disposable cups, ice, coolers, cocktail napkins, stirrers, and straws are included.

A Frozen Drink Machine is available and can be used for alcoholic or non-alcoholic frozen drinks.

The bartender will make your frozen drinks, refill the machine as needed, and serve your drinks until your mix runs out.

This package can not be broken apart.

Client provides all alcohol, beer, wine, and champagne, along with lemons, limes, salt, mixers, and garnishes needed. We do not provide mixers, garnish, or anything perishable.

The serving of alcohol by our bartenders is a requirements and is not an option. This is needed to meet the building insurance policy requirements.

$2.90 per guest for 199 guests or less. The bar guest count is 80% of total, which allows for children and light drinkers.

$3.50 per guest for 200 guests or over (x80%) and one additional bartender is needed, but only for service hours. 2nd bartender for service only and does not stay for cleanup.

If you would like your bar to be open longer, extended bartending service is charged at the rate of $45.00 per hour.

You can provide your own specialty cups, but the package price remains the same.

One bartender for every 125 drinking guests is advised. A good bartender can handle additional guests, but the bartender may sometimes have a line at your bar when your party begins. Lines will tend to happen at the beginning of your party, when your bar first opens and everyone is ordering their first drink. Once that initial rush is over, the flow of guests will return to normal and any line at the bar will be minimal. The more involved your bar offerings are, the more likely it is that you will need a second bartender.

Most of the reception packages are priced per person, so here's how it goes.

We set 10 guests to a table. If an item were to cost $23.00, the calculation for a price per person would be $23.00 cost / 10 guests per table = $2.30 per person.

The service reception packages are priced at a flat rate due to hourly staff rates. These cost calculations are figured by taking an hourly staff rate and multiplying that rate by the number of hours that staff is needed.

One bartender for every 125 drinking guests is advised. A good bartender can handle additional guests, but the bartender may sometimes have a line at your bar when your party begins. Lines will tend to happen at the beginning of your party, when your bar first opens and everyone is ordering their first drink.

The more involved your bar offerings are, the more likely it is that you will need a second bartender.
