Q: Should we have an “open bar” or a “cash bar”?
A: The Provincetown Inn will provide either a “cash bar” or “open bar” to satisfy our guests needs. Open bars at the Provincetown Inn are determined on a consumption basis – – ie. whatever is ordered is rung into to the register and tallied at the end of the evening. An 18% service charge and tax will be added to the final bill. An open bar can be run for the entire evening (five hour maximum by state law), or for just the cocktail hour switching over to a cash bar for the remainder of the evening. The Provincetown Inn can also supply tableside wide service for your reception. Please select form our wine list. Please note that the Provincetown Inn does not allow outside alcohol to be brought into any banquet functions.
Q: How do we book guest rooms at the Provincetown Inn?
A: The Provincetown Inn has many different room categories and rates. Rates are also dependent on time of year. For your wedding weekend, we will have specially discounted rates available for your guests. Your guests may book a room by phone or they may now book directly online. If booking by phone, they will need to mention that they are part of your wedding to receive the special rate. If booking online, they will need to enter a special group code which we will provide to you. These special rates are guaranteed up until the day of the reception, however rooms are not “held” for wedding parties. They are available on a first come, first serve basis. All room rates are based upon availability. We recommend booking your reservation early. The earlier a reservation is made, the more room options your guests will be available to choose from. Please note that there is two night minimum (Friday & Saturday) for all weekend reservations. Minimum may be longer during Holiday weekends.
