A ‘cash’ bar implies that your guests will pay for their own beverages. A ‘host’ or ‘open’ bar implies that you will pay for your guest’s beverages. Subsidized beverages may be arranged ($2 or $3 bar), where you pay a portion of the beverage cost so that your guests are charged less at a cash bar.
If choosing a ‘host’ bar, you have the option of deluxe or a premium beverage selection. Premium host bar includes Domestic Beer, House Wine, Liquor, Soft Drinks and Bottled Water. Deluxe host bar includes Domestic and Imported Beer, House Wine, Liquor, Liqueurs, Brandy, Cocktails, Soft Drinks and Bottled Water
Should total bar sales be less than $375 before gratuities and taxes, a labour charge of $35 per bartender hour shall apply, with a minimum of 4 hours each.
