Bartending

Professional Bartending Service

CLCC provides excellent bartending services at your special event, however, alcoholic beverages cannot be sold as we do not have a State of Michigan Liquor License. As long as you provide us with your pre-purchased alcoholic beverage we can serve it to your invited guests at your private party.

If you are member of a non-profit organization and would like to use the sale of alcoholic beverages as a profit center for raising funds, a Temporary Liquor license can be granted to you from the Michigan Liquor Control Commission.

Since we won’t be selling our alcohol to you, your beverage cost for the event should be far less expensive than it costs when purchasing your alcoholic beverages from a restaurant, banquet facility or caterer who has a liquor license. Simply buy what you want at your local bottle shop and take advantage of the savings.

CLCC bartenders are experienced, skilled and certified in alcohol service management. Our professional services come complete with standard bartending utensils, glassware, mixers, condiments, ice, clothed- and skirted-front and back bars, as well as black and white tuxedos and/or casual attire, whichever is desired.

CLCC carries general liability and liquor liability insurance. We strongly encourages you to contact your insurance agent to activate an affordable private party liability insurance as part of your homeowner’s insurance for the day of your special event in  order to cover you, your guests, our employees and subcontractors just in case there is an alcohol-related incident at the event.

Self-Serve Bar

If desired, we will assist you in setting up a self-serve bar, as well as help in keeping it clean, organized and well supplied. You shall understand that the nature of a self-serve bar inherently has more risk, than one attended by a professional CLCC bartender. You will agree to assume all responsibility of certifying that anyone who prepares alcoholic beverage, for oneself or another, is of legal age and is of sound mind; thus not likely to harm oneself or another as a result of consuming the self-prepared beverages.
