For those who like a little more control over their event, we offer our straight labor rate. This is when two TIPS certified and insured bartenders provide quality service for your event. Everything is itemized at this rate so use of our equipment if needed/wanted is additional. This rate is $125/hour.



A minimum deposit of $200 must be paid when the contract is signed.


A final guest count is required no later than 14 days prior to your scheduled event.


Balance must be paid BEFORE event date.


If an event is cancelled within 90 days of the event date (by the client) the minimum $200 initial payment is non-refundable.


Events cancelled within 20 days of the event date (by the client) will be required to pay the full contracted balance.


Events cancelled by Bittersweet will entail client receiving all monies previously paid.


Additional package time may be added for $1.99/per person per hour.


Tip jar on the bar is standard procedure. If you do not want one, a service fee will be added instead.


Events may be subject to a travel fee.


Labor rates on holidays/holiday weekends are increased.


Bittersweet Bar Service occasionally films and photographs our events and employees in action for promotional use in advertising and on social media. If this is not acceptable for your event, it must be noted in your contract.


Due to Michigan Liquor Control Commision guidelines, cash bars are PROHIBITED.


All of our bartenders are TIPS certified and have the authority to refuse beverage service at any time to event attendees.


Any persons who appear younger than 35 will be asked for identification. Only those persons who are 21 or older will be served alcoholic beverages. A valid ID is required to be served alcohol in the state of Michigan.


One drink per person, guests must order their own drink! This helps to ensure no minors are being served and no one is being over served.


No outside alcohol.


Bittersweet Bar Service has the right to terminate the bar service if our policies (or staff) are being abused, or if State or Federal liquor laws are being broken.
