RAISE THE BAR AT YOUR EVENT
6 SIMPLE STEPS TO A NEXT-LEVEL DRINK EXPERIENCE FOR YOUR GUESTS
You’ve nailed the venue, menu, décor and entertainment for your special event. But let’s be honest… your bar is probably just a few bottles of red & white, basic cocktails and some no-frills beers. You’re not alone. Even though mixology (the art of crafting and mixing cocktails) is experiencing a new golden age across the country, the bar can sometimes get overlooked when it comes to planning an event. The good news is it doesn’t have to be that way! A little planning and an experienced staff are all it takes to pull off the perfect bar experience to enhance your event vision. Here are six suggestions on how to elevate your bar.
ELEVATE YOUR BAR
More often than not, drinks are the heart and soul of an event. Most of your guests will spend the entire event with a cocktail in-hand. A premium bar experience with signature craft cocktails and unique flavors is a perfect way to engage and impress the entire time.
AN ATTENTIVE STAFF IS KEY
A great cocktail can transport you, and a great bar staff can start the journey. Friendly and attentive bartenders and cocktail servers can enhance your guests' experience and set the tone for your event. At Live Nation, we hire staff based on not just skill, but vibrant personality and professionalism. They not only serve, but they also enhance your celebration.
There are a lot of creative ways to keep the lines moving, the drinks flowing and the guests smiling at your event. Consider adding satellite bars in appropriate areas that stay close to the action, but out of traffic. Be sure to have VIP cocktail servers staffed and circling the room to make sure your guests are covered. Get creative and find something that works for your event!
