Questions to Consider:

  • How many people?
  • How long is your event?
  • What is the time of the party?
  • Will there be food?
  • What is your budget?
  • Do you need mixers and ice?
  • How many bars are there? Open or Cash bar?
  • Full bar or just beer/wine?

Other Considerations:

  • 2 drinks per person in the first hour
  • 1 drink per person every hour after (Max 4/person)
  • For Sit down dinner: Estimate at least 2 ½ glasses of wine per person
  • For Champagne Toast, estimate 10 servings per bottle or 120 per case
  • Ice
    • If serving wine liquor and beer: 2 lbs per person.
    • If serving only wine and beer: 1.5 lbs per person.
  • Soda
    • 50 people = 3 coke, diet, 7/up
    • 100 people = 2 of each for every 50+
  • Tonic/Club Soda same as Soda

How Much to Buy

If Serving Beer & Wine:

  • 60% Wine
  • 40% Beer

If Serving Beer, Wine & Liquor:

  • 40% Liquor
  • 35% Wine
  • 25% Beer

Hints

Liquor: A standard bar will typically have vodka, gin, bourbon, scotch, and rum. Vodka is usually the most popular, rum the least. People tend to drink darker spirits when it’s cold.

Event Policies

Return Policy

There is no time limit on when merchandise has to be returned. We would prefer that you return within 30 days of your event. We will give you a full refund on any merchandise as long as it is in re-sellable condition. All labels and seals must be intact and beer must be a full package in original packaging (i.e. full 12 pack in correct packaging). If you return more than 30% of your original order we will charge a restocking fee. The restocking fee is 10% of the net merchandise returned. You may bring the merchandise back to the store yourselves to receive refund. You may also schedule a pick up for our driver to come out and pick up the merchandise the following day from a designated location. The pick-up fee is equal to delivery fee.

Payment Policy

We do not have contracts. We ask that payment in full be made a least 48 hours before your delivery is to occur. We assume that payment in full is acceptance of your order as shown on final estimate. We accept cash, Visa, Mastercard, Discover and American Express. Please confirm all orders and payments with Argonaut staff a minimum of 48 hours prior to the event.

Delivery Policy

We charge a $10.00 delivery fee for deliveries 15 miles or less from the store. If delivery location is further than 15 miles a delivery fee of $15 will be assessed. We will give you a one-hour window of when our driver will arrive. We will have all items that require chilling cold at time of delivery, if requested. Our driver will deliver merchandise to the location of the bar set up. He/she will check in all items with delivery contact. Person signing for order must be 21+ years old to accept delivery. We will ask to, by law, record their ID information at time of delivery. Our driver DOES NOT set up or unpack your order. Delivery hours are from 9:00am – 9:00pm

Product Availability

Depending on when you confirm your order and current on hand inventory we will do our best to make sure your product arrives on time for your event. This can be beyond our control sometimes. In case a last minute substitution needs to be made, we will contact you to make arrangements. If we are unable to contact someone to arrange a substitution we will always substitute a higher quality product for the same price.
