Bar Staffing Services & Operations:


Black Stone is fully insured and licensed with a Texas Alcoholic Beverage Commission (TABC) mixed beverage permit that allows us to serve and sell alcohol at your special event!


We got into this side of the business when we saw bar partner after bar partner mess up bar service at our events.

If you have a public or private event coming up and need a bar service for your special event - we are the perfect partner.


Black Stone operates a professional and experienced bar service equipped to expertly handle your next event! At most events, inefficient bars and long lines mean you are LOSING money and upsetting your guests. We know how to build out your bar, and manage that bar day of in the most efficient and profitable way. We take great pride in running a professional bar operation.


Black stone will provide everything from bartenders, alcohol beverages, mixers, ice, garnishes, plasticware, bar linens and Black Stone’s 24/7 support team.


We provide a wide range of alcohol catering options including full bar service: mixed liquor drinks, speciality cocktails, beer, wine and champagne. We have several different packages available:


Beer & Wine: Includes beer and wine only with select domestic and premium beers and a hand picked selection of local Hill Country wines and non-alcohol drinks such as bottled water, sodas, juices and more.


Full Bar: Features selections of liquor, beer, wine and champagne, as well as mixers and non-alcohol drinks such as bottled water, sodas, juices and more.


Black Stone also handles the temporary alcohol permitting that is required through TABC for every special event and follows all local, state and federal laws and regulations.
