We work with your to find the perfect Bar Style.

Hosted Bar: Hosted Bar means that the drinks are complimentary to your guests. Together we will decide on alcohol options and budget. We can keep drinks flowing all night long or decide on a maximum budget, and when or if the bar sales reaches that budget then we will close the bar. 

Cash Bar: Cash bar means that guests will purchase their own drinks using cash or credit card. This is a wonderful, affordable option. We typically bring a wide range of options for guests and allow guests to use credit cards for added convenience. 

Partially Hosted Bar: The sky- is – the limit with this option, this means that some of the drinks are complimentary to guests and some drinks guests are required to purchase. This can be done by setting a budget, once that budget is reached all drinks are cash, setting a time limit once the time has passed for the bar to be hosted all drinks are cash, beer and wine can be hosted and liquor can be cash, there are many way to make this work and a partially hosted bar is a great way to keep costs to the host down.
