If you plan to start an open bar tab for your party and will not be present for the event, you are required to fill out and return a credit card authorization form to confirm your booking. This card MUST be the card that will be charged on the day of your event in accordance with a spending limit specified. After we send the proposal, your credit card authorization form must be filled out and returned within 14 days (including weekends). If it is not returned within that time frame, we reserve the right to cancel your event without advance notice. If you have not returned your forms during that 14 day time period and we receive another inquiry, we will give you 24 hours notice to return the forms before we cancel your event. We do not charge a fee, place a hold or charge a deposit, it is simply in case you leave without paying. A representative of the party that is authorized (in writing) must be present at the end of the event to sign for the bar tab.


Opening a Tab using a Credit or Debit Card requires a $25.00 pre-authorization hold. You may see two charges on your account: preauthorization and remaining balance. When combined, the preauthorization and remaining balance will equal the total tab. For tabs less than $25.00, the tab is deducted and remaining funds are returned to the cardholder. It may take 3-5 business days for pending charges to be released and is determined by the card issuer's bank.  Still unsure, ask a Kirby manager.


If your guests are going to be on a single tab paid by you, it is required that you provide a credit card BEFORE the event begins. This means that if you are paying for your guests on one or more tabs, we will add 20 percent gratuity to the entire bill before you sign. Your guests cannot order a drink until this has been taken care of so please make sure this is the FIRST thing you do with a manager present. It is up to you whether you want to start a tab at the bar and with a cocktail waitress, though we recommend that you do. You will only have one tab at the bar, but will need to start a separate tab with each waitress you want serving your party. The waitresses have sections, so please start a tab with the one or two assigned to your area. You will have a check for every separate tab you start.

We will not notify you of your tab amount unless you have informed the event coordinator of your request in advance or have notified the manager on duty.


We automatically add 20% gratuity to all bar and server tabs in the party. This is required.
