In order to secure an event, a non-refundable booking fee of 20-25% of the estimated total bill.

Final Payment must be received at the end of the event. IMPORTANT: if for some reason the client would like to pay later, a contract must be signed at the end of the event to make sure Mint Bartending gets paid within 3-5 days.

In the event of inclement weather, customers with outdoor events shall provide overhead shelter for the set up area. We reserve the right to stop or cancel service should the weather pose a potential danger to the crew, the bar or guests. Every effort will be made to continue service, including taking extra reasonable breaks in the event of extreme heat. However, safety is paramount in all decisions.
