Beverage and Liquor Services

The Gilmore Car Museum is equipped with a specialty Class C Resort Liquor License and can service your special event upon request. The cost of beverage services will be determined based on the amount and type of alcohol you wish to order, the number of bartenders needed for your event, and the number of guests estimated to attend the event.

The Gilmore Car Museum’s Director of Special Events will be happy to assist you with a complete list of beverages offered (beer, wine, liquor, and premium services available), answering all questions, and place all orders.
