Are there any fees not included in our packages?.

Great question!!

Our packages really cover just about everything (alcohol, soda/mixers/garnish, glassware, setup/teardown, bartender fees, dry goods and cups, etc…). There are only two other things that would be on your invoice:  6% sales tax per the State of Michigan, and a 20% service fee.  The service fee covers the administrative and kitchen work that is not a part of your bar service hours and allows us to guarantee better wages to our bartenders so we can hire and maintain the best local bartenders possible.

Here are the only other variables we know about… but these are optional and we’d walk you through that when working with you:

Extra Bartenders:  Our manager will determine how many bartenders will be needed for your event which is covered by the cost of your contract.  That said, sometimes clients want more bartenders and that’s something we can do for a flat rate of $125/bartender.  Please contact our bar manager to explore this further and to confirm the cost for your event.

Champagne Toast:  Champagne toasts are an add-on service available for $4/pp.

Add-Ons:  Our packages list what included.  But sometimes clients want to change it up and add some things on here or there.  We get it!!  Customizing is good.  We’ll work with you through any requests you may have and we’ll be sure to let you know at your time of request if that’s something that would be charged separately.
