Most groups of 20 people or less book 3 to 6 weeks in advance. If your group is more than 20 people we recommend 6 to 10 weeks. Keep in mind, we only allow 2 private parties per evening and once these spots are gone, they are gone! So it’s always better to reserve sooner than later!
Once you are ready to book we will briefly discuss your event with you by phone so that we can better understand the dynamic of your group. Once we have a feel for the party you are looking to create, we go through the bar selection process with you, choosing each bar specifically for your group. Next we decide a custom starting time to fit your schedule. Then lastly, you place down your deposit. The whole process takes as little as 15 minutes!
We require a 50% deposit based on your expected total number of guests in order to reserve a date and starting time for your crawl.

No. Private crawls are specifically built for your group! Your crawl will only be the people you invite and an SDPC host.
Depending on the option you select, private pub crawls can last anywhere from 2.5 to 3.5 hours.
The deposit for your group must be paid in one payment by credit card. For groups who want to have their guests pay separately, we suggest you collect cash from your group and pay the remaining balance in cash the night of the event.
