CITY OF FORT COLLINS
Club Tico at City Park
The Fort Collins Senior Center
Northside Aztlan Center
We are proud to host alcoholic beverage concessions for special events at the City of Fort Collins Recreation.
At these venues, the City has acquired a Colorado Liquor License, and therefore can no longer offer a BYOB bar.
But don't worry, at these events we encourage the host to leave the work to us!
We will provide all of the alcohol and staffing, while you mingle with your guests, and enjoy your celebration.
Interested in booking an event at one of these beautiful venues?
Please contact Lauren Binder, Event Coordinator at City of Fort Collins at

Once you have spoken with Lauren, we can help you plan the bar portion of your event!
Generally speaking, we offer three different types of pricing for our private event bars at these three venues;
A.) Cash Bar: Guests walk up the bar, and pay as they go. All cash bars must be approved by BTE, and booked, via signed contract, 45 days in advance. Hosts wishing to offer a cash bar will be required to pay for Bartending service. Bartending service costs range from $250-$500 depending on number of guests, venue booked, etc. We do accept credit/debit cards for purchases over $10. Please note, that for the safety of our team, we do not accept large bills.
B.) Hosted Bar: Your guests order drinks, and we run a master tab at the bar, which would be payable via credit card on file, when the event ends. This type of bar is preferable for our hosts planning a family and close friend event, such as a wedding reception, or family reunion. Hosts are able to set a recommended limit/ budget for their hosted tab. Once that limit has been met, the bar then becomes a cash bar.
C.) Ticket Bar: This type of bar allows our hosts to pre-pay for a set number of drinks via drink tickets. This type of bar is preferable to most of our hosts that are planning a corporate or fundraising event. Drink tickets are available for pre-purchase at $5/ tickets, and are exchangeable for any available Domestic Beer, House Wine, or Well Cocktail.
Hosted and Ticketed bars include 4 hours of complimentary Bartending service, plus setup and clean up of the bar area.
All bars require a 20% of sales automatic gratuity.
