Alcohol Beverage Service and Policies


In accordance with the NH State Liquor Commission regulations, all alcoholic beverages served at any campus event, small or large, must be provided by Saint Anselm Dining Services, the license holder. Alcoholic beverages cannot be purchased or distributed by anyone but the license holder. In the event that an outside caterer has been approved to cater an on-campus event, the approved caterers must have their own license to serve alcohol at the event.

According to NH State law alcohol beverages cannot be discounted from listed prices.

Bar pricing includes linen, high-end clear plastic beverage-ware and cocktail napkins. An additional charge of $4.00 per person will be incurred for all glassware requests outside of Davison Hall.

A two-hour minimum is required for all bars.
*Exception to the two-hour minimum: a cocktail bar before a dinner event will only require a one hour minimum bar.

Bars require a set-up charge of $125.00 per bar, plus bartender charges of $30.00 for the first hour and $15.00 for every hour after, per bartender, per hour.
