If you have a large group you can organise to put some money behind the bar. All bar tabs must be pre-arranged with our office.

Please call our office during business hours, a minimum of 7 days prior to your travel date to set this up with our team. Photo ID and credit card is required upon your arrival to start your Bar Tab.

As a guide, we suggest allocating $35 a head (plus GST) to cover basic beer, wine and soft drinks. For those wanting premium beer and wine included as well, we suggest $40 a head (plus GST). For an open bar (all beverages stocked) we suggest $45 a head (plus GST). Wristbands will be supplied to all of your group members so they can be clearly identified. Please note this is not a drinks package, but a guide to an approximate bar tab spend.

We also suggest adding a few ice buckets and stubby holders/wine glasses to your tab to enable your group to keep their drinks cold.

We will advise the credit remaining throughout the night. Should the tab run low, you may have the option to increase the limit. You will receive an electronic receipt upon request.

Please note our policy on consumption of alcohol prior to the event:
We encourage groups to enjoy themselves whilst on The Blues Train, however, please be aware that this is a licensed event and Responsible Service of Alcohol applies. We recommend any patrons attending the event to consume light ales and non-alcoholic beverages only prior to arrival. Anyone deemed intoxicated upon arrival may not be permitted entry to the event.

Putting money behind the bar in no way guarantees service of any patron.

This is a consumption tab, where you are charged only for what you consume – ie. not an “all inclusive package”.

To set up a Bar Tab:

  • Review our Beverage List
  • Call our office on 1300 885 993 to advise that you wish to set up a tab, and the estimated amount
