Frequently Asked Questions Regarding Professional Bartending Service

Q. My event is somewhat “up in the air” right now and I’m not sure whether to do the bar myself or hire a professional service.

A: The process of arranging alcohol service for your special event can be tricky. Here are several factors that we ask all of our clients to consider:

  • specific bar related costs in relation to overall budgeting
  • liquor liability insurance requirements
  • professional presentation & efficiency of service
  • setup, break down and left over liquor
  • related options

Our licensed and insured beverage catering service can save you time and money. Our fixed fee-all inclusive open bar package includes labor, insurance and all of your beverage needs - full bar or beer and wine only. A set per person rate lets you calculate bar related costs efficiently, so that you can then set your overall budget. Or, you may choose from one of several custom bar packages to fit your budget.

We deliver, set up and serve everything you need to make your special day memorable. Why waste valuable time running from store to store for bar supplies, liquor and ice when we can do it all for you!

Our bartenders are professionally trained and certified through the TIPS safety service program. We can set their attire to match your specific theme - whether it be a formal sit down affair or New England style clambake.  Above all, they're preparation and service is second to none.

Once the reception ends, we break it down, pack it up and remove it all from your venue. No leftovers to deal with and more importantly no counting open liquor bottles and beer cases in order to calculate your final bill.

Check out our optional services, including glassware, champagne toast and dinner wine. Or, for that special twist, choose from one of several "theme bars".

Please call or submit our online Request a Quote form so that we can put together a detailed bar service package for your special event.

Q: What is my liability if I hire Professional Bartending Service to provide/serve alcohol at my event?

A: As your full service beverage catering company, we assume the responsibility for making sure your guests are served appropriately. Our staff is “TIPS” trained and certified, giving you the peace of mind you deserve on that special day.

Q: I’m planning an informal gathering and would like a “fun” theme.

A: We can work with whatever “theme” you choose, whether it’s pina colada’s at the beach or frozen margarita’s at the pool. You can also choose from one of our own signature "Theme Bars". View our Theme Bar Photo Gallery.

Q: We’re on a tight budget and would like to offer a cash bar.

A: A cash bar is one of the most economical options we offer. We can assist with any licensing requirements, including whatever paperwork and related information may be necessary.

Q: How do I know what liquor, beer and wine my guests will want?

A: Along with our proposal, we provide a “Beverage List” which covers all of the basic liquor, beer and wine selections. From there, you can add or substitute certain products that work with your theme and/or budget. We can also recommend signature drinks or any new drinks that may be popular.

Q: How do I choose a bartending service?

A: Let’s face it, almost anyone can pour a drink. If you want a professional-looking bar with knowledgeable and certified bartenders that can handle unexpected situations, you need and deserve a reputable service. We let you choose what works best for you and we handle the rest. We are a state licensed and insured section 12c beverage catering company.
