Should you desire bar services, we have a variety of different options available to best suit your events needs and budget.

    If you are looking to have bar services at a private residence, you would be looking at the private bar package as you can not sell alcohol on private party in the State of New Hampshire, . If you are a corporate client, please read below under cash bar services for your event. See below for more details.

    Private Bar Package: We provide cups, ice, mixers, and garnish for a per person charge of $5.95.  We can also provide a bartender to dispense the wine, beer and spirits that you provide.  There is a $30/hour charge for the bartender, for a minimum of 4 hours and no longer than 6.  Should you have over 100 guests, we would mandate a second bartender for the event.If you choose to have guests help themselves, the host is responsible for the liability of any liquor offenses.  

    We would be happy to have a consultation with you regarding the amount of beer, wine and spirits you should purchase for your event. If you would like us to purchase the liquor for you, we would have a consultation with you on what you would like to purchase and how much and we would do the purchasing for you and pass through the cost. In addition to the purchasing cost, we would apply a charge for the transportation and labor associated with the drop off of the spirits. A $200 fee would apply for beer and wine only, a $350 charge would be applied for beer, wine and liquor. All items purchased would then be left on site for you since you purchased it.

Great Events Catering would charge your guests for drinks consumed. We could set this up as a cash or hosted bar.  All beer, wine and liquor outstanding would be taken off premise when the staff leaves. A cash bar package is priced at $125 for beer and wine only, $250 for beer, wine and liquor. Additional time is available at $30/hour per bartender.

    If you have more than 100 guests, we would require a second bartender for your event and an additional $30/hour charge would be incurred.

    Please know since we hold the liquor license and are liable for all liquor offenses, we are required to conduct a site visit for the location that you are having your event with the liquor commission.  We will do all the paperwork related to this event but will need your signature as approval for the visit.  All of this will be provided to you upon booking.
