The thought of footing the bill for an open bar sends a shudder straight down to your toes. Thousands of dollars for what you could have bought at the liquor store for a few hundred. But that’s exactly what you get to do! We have no liquor license. That means three things:
- You can provide your own alcohol (even your own home-brew!)
- You cannot charge for it.
- It must be served by a licensed, TIPS trained, insured bartender.
We provide all the infrastructure: two kegerators with taps, ice machine and insulated bins for ice for mixed drinks or canned & bottled beverages, all tucked behind a sandstone bar.
Because of the liability, you must use one of our approved, insured bartending services.
Here are guidelines for estimating how much alcohol to provide per person:
Here’s a nifty drink calculator.
The Garden Room as a venue does not sell or provide alcohol. However, Grimm Brothers is just out our back door AND they are willing to sell kegs to people using our event center. There are also a number of liquor stores in the area.
The bar includes 2 refrigerated kegerators with CO2 and taps, no need for tubs of ice to keep your kegs cold. The fridge in the kitchen can hold 2 more kegs just in case. Two insulated ice bins are located under the bar to hold ice for mixed drinks or to store bottles of cold beer and wine. There are also 2 smaller refrigerators behind the bar, and a hand sink. Oh and we have our own ice machine so you don’t need to lug in bags of ice to keep things cool.
According to the City of Loveland Municipal Code none of the events held at the Garden Room can charge for alcohol.
Unfortunately, the Loveland Municipal Code does not allow third parties to bring alcohol in to the venue. You may have it delivered, but you are responsible to pay for it and provide it to your guests through one of our approved bartending services.
Please remember that you MUST use an approved bartending service for your event at the Garden Room.
