Open and cash bar options

The Lucas Theatre extends the option of a cash bar, with a minimum requirement of $500. The cash bar minimum is based on the Lucas Theatre providing two to three bartenders and selling our stock beer and wine to guests. If the minimum isn't met, the final invoice will reflect the difference owed. There is also the possibility of obtaining a one-day liquor license with a $25 fee for the city permit and a $25 fee for the state permit. We can work on this with your caterer.
