DO YOU SUPPLY THE ALCOHOL?
As an event beverage company, we can certainly assist in providing the alcohol for your event. However, we do not have a liquor license and therefore cannot sell alcohol directly.
We can provide you with a detailed shopping list based on your preferences and needs so that you can purchase the alcohol yourself.

This allows you to have greater control over the selection and also helps you save on costs.

CAN YOU HOST A CASH BAR FOR EVENTS?
At Executive Beverage we do not offer cash bar services for events. This is because we do not hold a liquor license, which is required to operate a cash bar in Virginia.
While it may be tempting to offer a cash bar to save costs or make a profit, it is important to understand the legal and liability risks involved. Without a liquor license, serving alcohol for profit is illegal in Virginia and can result in fines and legal consequences.
Additionally, hosting a cash bar puts the responsibility of monitoring alcohol consumption and ensuring guests' safety solely on the event host or planner, rather than a licensed, insured and trained beverage comapny. This can lead to potential liability issues and risks for the host or planner.
WHAT IS YOUR PAYMENT & REFUND POLICY?
At Executive Beverage, we offer multiple payment options for our clients' convenience, including credit card, check, and cash payments. Our payment process is 100% online, encrypted, simple and transparent, with clear itemized quotes, invoices and receipts provided for all transactions.
In terms of our refund policy, we strive to be flexible and understanding of our clients' needs. If an event is cancelled at least 10 days before the event, we will work with the client to provide a full or partial refund, depending on the timing and circumstances of the cancellation.
We believe that our payment options and refund policy help to ensure that our clients feel comfortable and confident when working with us. Our goal is to provide exceptional service while also being transparent and accommodating in all aspects of our business.
DO YOU HAVE A RAINY DAY POLICY?
Yes, Executive Beverage has a rain cancellation policy. We understand that weather can be unpredictable, and we want to make sure our clients have peace of mind when planning their events.
If inclement weather is forecasted, we will work with our clients to determine the best course of action. In the case of rain, we can either move the bar setup inside, if possible, or reschedule the event for another date.
We require that clients notify us at least 24 hours in advance if they need to cancel or reschedule due to rain. Keep in mind, rain cancellations do not constitue a refund and can only be rescheduled.
We also recommend that clients consider having a backup plan in place in case of rain, such as a tent or an indoor space that can accommodate their event needs.
Our goal is to provide our clients with the best possible service and experience, and we believe having a rain cancellation policy helps us achieve that.

WHAT SPACE/ REQUIREMENTS ARE NEEDED FOR A BAR RENTAL?
When renting a bar from Executive Beverage, it's important to consider the space and requirements needed to ensure a seamless and successful event. Our bars come in various sizes and styles to accommodate your event, but we do require a clear and level area to set up the bar.
The size of the space needed will depend on the size of the bar rental you choose and the number of guests you plan to serve. Generally we require about a 10 'X 10' space to accomidate your bar setting.
We recommend allowing for extra space around the bar to ensure guests can easily access and order drinks without overcrowding.
It's also important to consider the location of the bar within your event space. We suggest placing the bar in a central location to encourage guests to gather and socialize around it, but also consider the flow of foot traffic to prevent congestion.

First, we re-cap all bottles and neatly organize them for client pick up or placement. This way, the alcohol stays fresh and ready to use for future events.
We also make sure that during the event, we manage your stock of wine, beer, and spirits to ensure items are returnable by not wetting or damaging the labels of supplies we do not use. This can save you money when you can return unused alcohol.
Additionally, we have the ability to set up a self-service beverage station for any stragglers or friends and family who may be hanging out after your contracted services.
