Bar Service

Custom Catering by Short Stop can give you the complete package for your event including your bar service. We set up and staff your bar with professional bartenders and mixologists who know how to mix everything from an old-fashioned to an infused vodka. We offer an extensive list of spirits and beer. Custom Catering features Cupcake Wines and local micro-brew and craft beer favorites.

Need a Signature Drink? Our Bar Master can create a Signature drink for your event that celebrates your personality or reflects a corporate flair. Does Champagne fit the occasion? We have it, along with cognac and fine cigars.
Custom Catering by Short Stop Bar Service is available for private events and non-profit-sponsored events. Per the State of Minnesota regulations, the minimum purchase of at least one food serving per guest is required with all bar packages.

Hosted bars are priced based on alcohol consumption. Clients will be billed based on actual consumption after the event. Cash bar and any combination of hosted and cash bar is available. Universal drink tickets may be pre-purchased for your event.

Bartenders will not serve under age or intoxicated guests. The Minnesota license also prohibits overstock to be left behind when bar service ends.

The management and staff of Custom Catering by Short Stop take the following matters very seriously, not only out of respect for the law, but also for the safety of our guests and staff. All alcoholic beverage sales and service are subject to the rules and regulations of the Minnesota State Liquor Control Board. Custom Catering reserves the right to refuse to sell to or serve any person, when it is in Custom Catering’s sole opinion and judgement, that such a sale or service would constitute an infraction of the regulations.
