Are you ready to get started with planning your special event? The first step is to complete and submit an online Request for Proposal (RFP). The RFP will provide us the initial information we need to determine date(s) availability and estimated costs. Within three business days of the submission of the RFP, our event manager will contact you to discuss the options you have chosen, other services or options that you may desire, and to answer any questions. After this follow up discussion, we will prepare an estimate for you. Please note that submitting an RFP does NOT guarantee date availability or costs. It is simply a tool we use to get your event planning started.
Please note any question with a red * requires an answer. You will not be able to electronically submit this form until all fields with the red * are completed. Almost all questions require an answer.
To the best of your ability, please tell us the location of your event, how many guests you anticipate and the type of event you are planning.
Please provide us with the date you wish to have your event, and any possible alternate dates if your requested date is not available.
If you have reviewed the bar service packages we have available and chosen one that fits your needs, please check the appropriate choice. If you have not reviewed our available bar service packages or need help in choosing the most appropriate for your needs, please check "Not Sure".
In addition to the prices above, there is a $75 set up fee per bar which includes cocktail napkins, disposable cups, straws and ice. Our experienced bartenders are charged at the rate of $20 per bartender per hour. We charge you for the length of your event plus 3 hours for set up, clean up and travel time. The number of bartenders needed will be determined by our event specialist and will be based on the type of bar service, hours of service and guest count. Excessive set up, clean up and travel time may result in additional bartender charges per hour. 7% Indiana sales tax will be added to all invoices. Prices are subject to change.
