Darby House holds a liquor license, and all alcohol must be purchased and served by authorized Darby House staff. We offer Open Bar packages and a variety of customized enhancements allowing you flexibility in designing your perfect beverage service.
Open Bar at Darby House
Open Bars are great when you have a drinking crowd! Instead of running a bar tab for the evening, this allows you to pay a flat price per person for beverage service for 4.5 hours. PLUS, you know what the bar bill looks like ahead of time so you can budget for it along the way!
Open Bars are priced per all adult guests over 21 years. For guests 3-20 years of age, our non-alcoholic package would apply.
