Each of our bar options has a minimum spend. The minimum spend is applied to ensure that we meet the costs associated with bringing our bar to your event. We have tried to set our minimum spend targets as reasonably as possible, we hope that in every eventuality that booking fees & deposits are returned in full, technically making our service cost the client nothing.
We understand that having a smaller wedding or event can mean that meeting the minimum spend target is unlikely, for this reason if your event is expecting under 75 guests then we're happy to attend on the basis that a booking fee of £350 is paid. In these circumstances we would not implement a minimum spend.
How to lower your minimum spend
We are happy to lower your minimum spend should you decide to purchase a drinks package from us. One example of a drinks package being bought could be for a wedding, if you purchase your welcome drinks & table wine from us then this will lower your weddings minimum spend considerably.
Minimum spend, Booking Fee & Deposit
To ensure that we meet the minimum spend at your event, we require a booking fee & deposit. The booking fee confirms your date in our diary, meaning nobody else can book that date. The deposit is required 30 days before the date of the event. Should the minimum spend be met, then we shall return the booking fee & deposit in full.
Party Option - Minimum spend: £1000, Booking fee: £200, Deposit: £200
Wedding Option - Minimum spend: £1500, Booking fee: £250, Deposit: £500
Premium Option - Minimum spend: £2000, Booking fee: £400, Deposit: £850
Twin Bar Option - Minimum spend: £2500, Booking fee: £500, Deposit: £1000
Example where minimum spend is met: Jim & Susan book a guest bar with the "premium option". They confirm their booking by paying the £400 booking fee, then 30 days before their wedding pay the £850 deposit, bringing their total payment to £1250. At the end of the evening the total bar take is £2300 (£300 over the minimum spend). As the minimum spend has been met we return the full £1250 paid prior to the wedding.
Example where minimum spend is not met: Jim & Susan book a guest bar with the "wedding option". They confirm their booking by paying the £250 booking fee, then 30 days before their wedding pay the £500 deposit, bringing their total payment to £750. At the end of the evening the total bar take is £1350 (£150 short of the minimum spend). We deduct the £150 from the £750 paid prior to the event and return the remaining £600 to them.
