How much does a Melbourne cocktail bar cost to hire?
The cost can vary depending on your budget and what exactly you want from your experience but it's safe to say it won't be cheap! You might find that venues with lower costs will only offer basic drinks so if cocktails are an important part of what you need then make sure to consider this option when booking. Pricing also depends heavily on where in Melbourne you decide to hire a venue - some areas are more expensive than others due to their location and level of popularity. A good rule of thumb is around 60-100 per person for events in Melbourne. This may vary depending on food & beverage and AV requirements.
How do I book a cocktail bar for an event?
Organising an event can be a pain, especially if this is your first time! Fear not, the VenueNow team is here to help. Our team of Event Booking Experts can help you find, compare and book the best venue for your needs. Submit your event brief here and the VenueNow will get in touch within a few hours with a personalised list of the best venues that fit your brief. Once you've compared the recommendations, simply let the VenueNow team know which venues you are interested in. They'll then get in contact with the venues and get a quote with the best pricing as soon as possible. Once you're happy with a quote, the VenueNow will make an introduction to the venue and they'll handle things from there!
Once VenueNow has made an introduction to the venue, you will need to speak with the venue manager about your needs and requirements, and they'll be able to provide you with a final quote. Then once you have decided on dates, times and costs it's time to talk catering! Venues are usually happy to work alongside the caterers but don't forget that some venues in Melbourne do provide their own food so make sure this isn't an issue when booking.
If you'd like to progress, venues often have a deposit that you're required to pay up front, typically ranging from 10-50% of the event value. Depending on the venue and your event requirements, you'll then need to pay the remaining balance close to the event date or shortly after.
