Bartending Services - We provide beverage bar set up options which includes the bar tables, glasses, napkins, stir straws, and ice containers. A refrigerator is conveniently available for the bartender. We provide a list of experienced and licensed bartenders. We recommend one bartender per 75 persons. There are three types of bars:
This type of bar is paid for by the host. The host purchases wine, beer or liquor on their own and hires a bartender to serve, or the host purchases the alcohol through a full service bartender. Full service Bartender options include pre-paid bottle service or open bar by the drink. For pre-paid bottle service, the host purchases a specific amount of wine, beer or liquor by the bottle. For open bar by the drink, the host pays the entire tab. Most events at the Capitol, including weddings, use a Hosted Bar.
This combination works well for many functions. With this option, the host purchases drink tickets for every guest (usually two per guest). Once the guest's tickets are gone, he or she can purchase directly from the bar on a cash basis. There are times when this is an effective solution for corporate events. The host is responsible for his portion of the bar tab.
This means the guests purchase all of their own drinks.
*The Capitol Theatre does not sell alcohol. Alcohol must be purchased by the host, and any alcohol allowed on the property must be served by a licensed bartender.
