The first tier option is a completely open bar to your guest, in this option we will run a tab of all of the alcoholic drinks that your guests order, and add them onto your final bill.

Our third tier option is to run a tab for a certain dollar amount or a certain time frame. This option would allow your guest to have a an open bar of a certain dollar amount, such as a $300 limit or certain time framesuch as 6-8pm.  Once that amount has been met, or the time has elapsed, the bar will then change to a cash bar.
