Q: Can we hire our own bartender or bartending service?

Kylan Barn will supply a list of 15-20 Maryland TIPS certified bartenders to help regulate over-serving and underage drinking. The bartenders are not employees of Kylan Barn, just trusted individuals who understand the business of alcohol. It is your responsibility to coordinate with them and negotiate cost of service. They will charge between $150-$200 per event depending on the date and time of year. If you opt against an open bar and choose to purchase alcohol services through your caterer, they are required to have a Wicomico County liquor license and a restaurant.

They will have a checklist to ensure no damages were made to the barn or landscape. Examples include verifying no guests drove through the landscaping or stole decor, trash (including cigarette butts and pet waste) was properly disposed, etc. If law enforcement is required for any reason, this is result in an automatic forfeiture of your security deposit.
