  • Housekeeping: As much as $5 per day
  • Waitstaff and bartenders: 15–20 percent of total bill

BEWARE OF TRAVEL SCAMS

Bar Convent Brooklyn does NOT have an official travel booking/accommodations partner. 
Don’t be fooled by offers from other parties using the BCB Brooklyn name – they are NOT affiliated with Reed Exhibitions or BCB Brooklyn.  Remember, if the offer seems too good to be true, it probably is.  At the very least, before you book your travel, please check the prospective vendor's rating at www.bbb.org.
