Bar Supplies for a Party

Wine pouring

When planning bar service for an event, it’s important to know how to stock a bar.  We recommend first plan a bar list for 100 guests. Then, based on the number of actual guests, simply apply a modifier to get an accurate estimate. Add an additional 5% to everything,  because running out is worse than having some left over.

For example, you expect 135 guests. Based on the 100 guest rule you will need 12 cases of spirits & wine, 10.5 lbs. of garnish, and 105 glasses & 105 mugs. Simply multiply each number by 1.35 to get an accurate total for 135 guests.  For events with fewer than 100 guests, reverse the process.

Notes on using alcohol for party

For any bar supplies for a party there are a few additional thing you should remember:

1.- Although we know you don’t need to be told this by us, we would like to clarify that we discourage drinking and driving. Always remember to have a designated driver who abstains from drinking any alcohol at all –

2.- Get a Uber  – if that’s what you’d rather opt for.
