There’s more to going to bars than simply getting wasted and munching away on stale peanuts all night long. Nowadays, establishments are more creative with what they offer their patrons, so you’ll not have to worry about finding things to do.

Here are some tips you can use in case you would like to celebrate a special occasion in bars with your special guests for a change.

Ideas for Things to Do to Enjoy Your Celebration at the Local Bars

Set A Budget

As with any kind of occasion, regardless of where you would like to celebrate it, the first thing you need to do is to set a budget. This is closely linked to how many guests you’ll actually be having over so you also should first finalize the headcount for your party. This will also help you reserve the right number of seats.

Food Logistics

Your budget will also dictate to a certain extent what kinds of food you can pre-order. You can choose to limit what guests can order to ensure you stay on budget.

Another option, though, is to just let the guests order anything--especially if it’s an open bar kind of event--and then just put a cap at the running tab. Once that cap is reached, the open bar and menu closes, and anything else that the guests would like to order will have to be charged separate from your party tab.

Of course, don’t forget to advise your guests about this setup early on so as to manage their expectations. Don’t give them the impression the night is going to be absolutely free when there’s going to be a limitation such as this.>

Get Entertained

While casual dining is a great way to celebrate something with your family and closest peers, it’s also great if you can offer some entertainment. Bars with live music are usually a good bet because not only do you have the logistics for space and food already taken care of, but also because you can have the opportunity to do more than just talk and mingle with each other.

You can check what kind of music the band plays so you can have an idea of what kind of mood it will set for your party. In certain instances, and depending on the mood of the musicians, they might even accept requests from the guests, or even invite them up on stage to jam with them. It may be something a bit more spontaneous, but these are actually the little things that make special events all the more memorable. Besides, science itself has shown that listening to live music is healthy for you as it can help reduce your stress levels.

Bars like Tacky Jacks offer these amenities and entertainment. You can consider them the next time you’re thinking of throwing an enjoyable party for your loved ones.
