That sounds pretty awesome, if you ask me. Considering our venue charges between $50-55 per person.

Agreed! Super cheap.  Ours is 49/person for 4 hours.  9/person for an additional hour on top of the 4 hours.  

And that’s with an off-season discount applied!

I’d say it’s pretty good. Ours is $14/person 4.5 hours 6 types of beer in aluminum bottles, 4 types of wine, bar brand mixed drinks and shots, margs/daquiris/cosmos.

I think this totally varies regionally. The venues I looked at in a major city were around $40-60 pp for 4 hours open bar. At some places it was even more than the food!

Ours is $19/pp so sounds reasonable to me!
