Illinois State University Catering can provide either a cash bar or a host bar. The cost of a full bar is $125 which includes two bartenders. A wine and beer only bar is $80.00. If additional bartenders are needed they will be charged at a rate of $25.00 per hour. With a cash bar your guests pay by the drink. The host will pay the opening fee and the cost of the bartenders. With an open bar the host pays the opening fee, bartender costs, and the cost of the drinks. A record is kept by the bartender for the cost of beverages selected by the guest, and then the host will be billed at the conclusion of the event.
Alcohol approval for events held outside of the Bone Student Center must be obtained through the University President's office. A copy of this approval must be received by Illinois State University Catering at least 5 business days prior to your event for alcohol to be served.
