How much notice do you require to properly book an event?

We book our dates on a first come, first served basis and although we are capable of multiple events on a given day, we strongly encourage you to book as soon as possible. We have booked events a year to 16 months in advance on popular days, so the sooner the better. There are some dates that we will have availability at a last minute notice, so please be sure to inquire, as we will do our best to accommodate. 

 

 

Do you require a contract/retainer/deposit?

We do require both a contract and a retainer. The retainer is non-refundable, non-transferrable and non-applicable to your day of event service. It reserves your date, travel is covered within 20 miles inside of Kansas City, MO radius.  To book your event, you must submit your retainer and a signed contract. 

 

How do I know how many bartenders I will need? 

When you complete your  questionnaire, we take into account the amount of guests attending & drinking, the type of consumption expected, the services offered (champagne toasts, soft drink stations, etc.,) all which play a part in determining the optimal number of bartenders required for the best service possible. 

 

Are your bartenders certified?

All of our bartenders are TIPS® certified (Training for Intervention Procedures and most carry a Kansas City Liquor Permit. There are some bartenders that carry other individual city licenses.
