You may host drinks for your guests based on consumption, or you may choose to have a cash bar open for your guests to purchase their own drinks. All alcoholic beverages served on Columbus Civic Center premises must be dispensed by Centerplate bartenders and servers. Alcoholic beverage service may be refused to any person who is not able to verify legal age with proper photo identification. Centerplate reserves the right to refuse service to individuals who appear intoxicated. A bartender fee may be applied if your bar sales do not exceed the facility minimum.
Our catering department must be notified of the exact number of attendees at least three business days prior to all functions. This minimum number of guests will be considered a guarantee for which you will be charged, even if fewer guests attend. If no guarantee is received by the catering department, the number of guests estimated on your catering contract will be used as the guarantee.
Fifty percent (50%) of the guaranteed number of guests must be paid in advance (see Guarantee). The remaining balance will be collected prior to your event. Other billing arrangements may be made in advance with our catering department.
