What is bar/restaurant minimum spend and how does it work?

When planning an event or party you may have come across the term ‘minimum spend’. If you don’t know what does it mean, don’t worry about it – we know this game – just check this out.

Here’s how it minimum spend works…

Let’s say your birthday is coming up. You, your family and friends are planning to celebrate this special day together. Next step is to find that perfect venue to make it an unforgettable event. Using the power of minimum spend you could get your dream venue for cheaper than you’d expect.

Set the scene, it’s your birthday, the tables are set, the buffet is in place, the balloons are inflated and the candles are about to be lit. And in a venue which you thought you could never afford, It’s s birthday present in itself! Can you hear the Happy birthday already? We do!

‘Minimum spend’ gives you this possibility and it’s probably easier than you think. If your venue has a minimum spend of £1,000 and you invite 50 people and each one of your guests spends 20 pounds on few drinks and some snacks over the night, then your costs are zero, nada, zilch. Yep, you got it right, and if you don’t quite make it there, you can top it up yourself at the end.

Minimum spend basically means that all you have to do is to invite your guests and make sure they will spend a certain amount of money at the bar.

This way you actually party for free with the best people around you in one of the hottest venues for hire in town. So, let’s have some fun!
