Beverage

The Ballroom at McKay is pleased to offer a wide variety of beverage options to complement your event celebration.

You can choose from three different types of bars; a hosted bar, consumption bar, or cash bar. A hosted bar, typically the best value option, is when the host of the event provides an open bar to their guests and is charged a flat rate per guest, per hour. A consumption bar, is where the host of the event provides an open bar to their guests and is charged per drink served – per cocktail, per beer, per glass of wine, per soda. A cash bar is a bar at the event where the individual guests pay the bartender for each cocktail, beer, glass of wine and soda they order.

Whatever beverage option you select, we can reassure you that you will be in good hands with our knowledgeable and highly trained beverage team. We pride ourselves in our wonderful customer service, our attention to detail and willingness to go above and beyond for every single guest.
