The Bar - Terms and Conditions

The following bar related items have been added to the Adams Peak Country Estate Terms and Conditions. Please check for full Terms and Conditions.

BYO / Bar Service

APCE is a BYO venue. As part of this agreement, you are required to hire qualified RSA bar staff from APCE. We require 1 bar staff member per 30 guests, with a minimum of 2 bar staff per event. Please see our Bar Service Packages on the website (effective as of 1 October 2019). Bar Service invoices will be issued 1 month prior to the event when final numbers and run sheet details are received and must be paid with 7 days.

We require time to set up The Bar prior to the ceremony to ensure drinks are ready as soon as the ceremony is completed. This may incur an additional charge depending on setup requirements.

We also have a plastic policy. All glasses must be surrendered at 10pm, and changed over to plastic cups. This ensures minimal breakages and accidents due to broken glass.

If you have choose to BYO spirits, please note, soft drink mixers are NOT included as part of the package. 

As a provider of services governed by the Responsible Service of Alcohol (RSA), we are required to comply with all RSA laws without exception including but not limited to: not serve anyone who shows signs of impending intoxication; not serve anyone who arrives already intoxicated; not serve alcohol to anyone who is under the age of 18.
