Bar Set-up Fees
Did You Know?

The reason restaurants and other venues charge corkage a fee is because alcohol sales are a big profit line on their business plan.

Even when you decide to take cost-cutting measures, there are still hidden fees you can incur. For example, if your venue allows you to supply your own booze for the bar to avoid their costly markup, you'll probably still end up paying a bar set-up fee or a corkage fee that can quickly eat up all your savings. But the good news is they'll probably throw in the glasses free of charge.
