When you are having a large event it may be difficult to determine how many bars to have for your guests. You want to make sure that no one is waiting too long for a drink all while being graciously served. A good rule of thumb is to have 1 bar per 100 guests. So if you have 500 guests then we suggest 5 bars spread throughout your venue or you can do 2 bars in the back of the ballroom with 2 bartenders each and one extra one for overflow of guests. This will allow your guests toget their favorite drink almost any where from your event with ease. We also suggest that you include some cocktail high tables around the bar area as this allows your guests to put their drink down, do this at the cocktail hour and the reception.
