My sister and I absolutely loved Yvonne! We hired her + an additional bartender and server. All three women were incredible! Made us delicious drinks for our guests and had positive attitudes and smiles the entire time! Would definitely use Yvonne again and also recommend her service to friends. Looking forward to using Yvonne in the future! We are both very very happy with the outcome of our party and our friends could not stop raving about our bartenders. Thank you!

Daniel wasn't perfect. Made delicious drinks, offers more than bartenders typically do with shopping list, drink recommendations, his own bar, and all the AMAZING materials he brings that he makes himself. He made a hibiscus syrup that our guests were crazy about, and cocktails that people couldn't get enough of. I couldn't possibly have asked for more! Definitely will be using him for future events.

I am so happy that I hired Andrew and his team for our event. They arrived right on time, set up quickly, served fantastic drinks, and all of bartenders had fun, engaging personalities that really added to the ambiance of the night. I will definitely hire again- they're the best!

We were provided with the services of a bartender and food handler/server for our Buffet Celebration for the recent marriage of our daughter and her new husband. We also experienced the set up and co-ordination by "Drew" who worked with me from start to finish in a fantastic, very professional manner. His suggestions and support were generously extended and clearly came from his experience in the business. The two staff members were very experienced, professional, friendly and helpful with suggestions for our guests. No hesitation about highly recommending.

Michael was an exceptional bartender; even better than his 5-star reviews promised. He was very responsive to early planning emails and provided suggestions on custom cocktails and then a shopping list. The day of our 30-guest party he did a fabulous job of keeping everyone happy and glasses filled -- and afterwards he even helped clean up (when no one was looking). I'm thinking of other parties we can throw just to hire Michael again!

I had a rehearsal dinner on Friday and reception on Saturday. Both required bartenders. TreVhon worked the rehearsal dinner well. He responded quickly to our requests and made the evening smooth. Armando worked the reception. He was exceptional. He worked all the tables and made sure everyone had a full glass. Highly recommend. Thanks gentleman for your fine work!

The bartender that came was very friendly and I appreciate the job she did. However I felt she was either very inexperienced or not that motivated. It took her almost an hour before she really got around to making drinks, at which point people seemed to be ordering them just to help her along. Then I realized that some of the drinks were not looking pretty at all, and it turned out that one of the three recipes I had sent beforehand didn't print out all the way. Later that night I also noticed the simple syrup was barely used, making me think that the second drink was not prepared right, which everyone said was "too strong".. basically was not sweet enough. Point is, she should have tested her drinks before giving them out, and at minimum verified that they resembled the photos. She should also know what blue curaçao is and how to pronounce it before telling guests. And finally, other more experienced bartenders took initiative to find needed ingredients in the cabinet rather than stop me from hosting every 10 minutes to find them. Overall, this company offered 4 hours of service when I only asked for 3, and came prepared with garnishes which is a pretty big time saver. If this had been a basic serve drinks kind of affair, it would have been perfectly fine.

Love On the Rocks! & so do my clients... I'm a private chef /caterer whose clients often request bartending to supplement food service. I've outsourced bartending for a good number of private and corporate occasions to OTR, and their bartenders, particularly Matt and David, have delivered both delicious drinks + impeccable service. In addition to being talented barkeepers, they're just genuinely stellar guys who can be trusted and are reliable. They're also keen on developing customized cocktails for your event & providing grocery lists complete with ingredients & quantities based on number of guests. I highly recommend On the Rocks for your next soirée!

Dustin was a fantastic bartender for our party. He was prompt, professional, helped set up the entire bar, stayed past his scheduled end time, and helped clean. His drinks were tasty and he was able to make pretty much anything you asked for. We really couldn't have asked for a better bartender. Will definitely be using Dustin again. Thank you so much for all your help!

Angelica was great! Friendly and professional. I appreciated how efffiect and knowledgeable she was in her skill of setting up, mixing and breaking down the bar area with little to no direction. She completed my team of servers and bartenders and helped make my catering service a big success! I will definitely use her again for future catering jobs! Thanks again Angelica!

Lloyd was fantastic! I planned a party for 300+ people and the bartender I had originally connected with didn't work out a couple days before the event. I contacted Lloyd at the last minute, and I'm so happy I found him. Lloyd was very professional and easy to plan with, and on the day of the event he was smooth and cheerful. He served hundreds of people for 5 hours in a very hectic environment. We were all very impressed. I hope to hire Lloyd again!

Amazing bartenders..yes, the drinks are extremely well made, both Ian & Rosa have the skills and knowledge to make well made, balanced, and fun drinks. But their professionalism and overall helpfulness is what I was truly impressed with. Sharpshooters went above and beyond the services I expected, I would hire them again in a heart beat! cant wait to plan another party just to have them back.

I had thought about having my family reunion without hiring anyone to tend bar, but I have a huge family and everyone was bring friends so at the last minute found In the Mix bartenders. I found them to be very well organized and performed as seasoned professionals from the moment they arrived to well after my last guest departed.They arrived early the day of the event and had their station set up and ready to go in plenty of time for when our guests arrived. Tavia was able to also help out in renting table cloths and had other items available if needed. The two bartenders were attentive to my guests needs and I received many compliments from guests on their service. Clean up was done quickly and the overall cost was extremely reasonable compared to all the work my partner and I were spared,

Tracie designed & presented an extraordinarily successful afternoon/evening BBQ. We had friends from Darjeeling visiting and wanted them to experience a true American BBQ--Tracie selected and prepared the food--shrimp & tomato appetizers, ribs, chicken & salmon, cole slaw & potato salad, finished with delicious pies--arranged the tables and settings, right down to the checkered tablecloths & mason jar flower settings, and hired professional serving and cleaning staff. No question, Tracie caters every future event

Jeremy makes amazing cocktails tasted as good as those I paid $12+ each at the bar! And the hourly rate for his service is lower compared to most other bartenders. Great value!

San Francisco's cheapest and most professional bartending service! I have tested many services in the area and usually we have our set bartenders. They weren't available for my wife's birthday party, so I contacted Josh and his team. They are responsive, cheaper than our old bartenders, on time, professional, and extremely courteous. I think my wife and I have found ourselves a new favorite bartender and we will definitely be booking them for our future happenings.
