Private Charter Bar Options
Minneapolis & St. Paul's
All Padelford Riverboats have a fully-stocked bar on each deck. There are several different methods for payment. Our host bar options are also available to groups that book our public cruises. Check out our Charter Enhancements page for additional options for your private charter.
Cash Bar - Each passenger pays cash as they order.
Host Bar - The host pays. Under this plan there are several options:
- Host Bar Tab - We run a tab and total it up at the end of your cruise. You have the option to limit the time and items available for the host bar. With this method an estimated cost is calculated in advance and you pay that amount with your final payment at least seven days prior to the cruise. You will receive a refund if the bar tab is less than the estimate or pay the difference if the tab exceeds the estimate.
- Drink Tickets - We will provide you with tickets. When using drink tickets, there are two options:
1. Tickets may be purchased for a flat rate of $6 per ticket. Tickets are good for any beverage and total number of tickets is guaranteed.
2. Tickets are worth host value. Bartenders will keep track of how many tickets are used and what they are used for (ex. pop, beer, mixed drink). At the end of the evening any additional amount over estimate will be due in full.
- Flat Rate - You pay a set price per person.
$5 per person - Soft drinks only
$15 per person - Soda, Beer and House Wine
$18 per person - Soda, Beer, House and Premium Wines and Rail Liquor
$22 per person - Soda, Beer, House and Premium Wines, Rail and Premium Liquor
**Additional hours can be added to Flat Rate Drink Packages. Please ask your Charter Consultant for pricing** Prices do not include sales tax
Full payment based on final passenger guarantee is due one week prior to the cruise date. Payment for any additional passengers above the final guarantee is due on the day of the cruise. Bar packages may be ordered only in conjunction with catering.
