Introduction: From the first call to the service we provide on the day of the event, you will know you are in the best hands and that we love what we do. We are a small enough company to put extreme amounts of care and passion into every event, use only the best of the best staff and make sure you know exactly who is going to be coming beforehand, but big enough to always have availability and offer the best prices around. Don’t settle for anything less than the best, if the company you are working with does not know who they are sending or have time to help with custom drink menus, cocktails and shopping lists, or doesn’t respond in a timely manner... don’t expect 5 star service. We are fully insured- million dollar general and liquor liability, TIPS certified, and licensed... our bartenders are rigorously interviewed before representing our brand in the field. We are there to not only provide the absolute best staff: bartenders or wait staff; but also to help with every aspect of event planning that you may need. We offer mobile bar rentals, garnish, coolers, ice service, alcohol service, glassware, model bartending and can even recommend great professionals that we work close with such as bridal makeup, limo/ party bus service, licensed security, poker/ casino rentals, valet, mobile photo booth rentals and DJs. As your big day approaches we will do everything possible to make sure that your wedding, birthday, anniversary, bar mitzvah, holiday party etc. is a stress free success. We also offer a touch of flair with our smoking gun that is available upon request and will leave your guests in awe. The smoked jalapeño pineapple margarita is a must. Call for a free consultation!!! Cheers, Luke Miller I absolutely love seeing how happy my customers are with the service we provide on the day of the event.

Luke was very responsive to all my questions throughout the weeks, and oh boy did I ask questions a lot lol. Derrik was a great bartender, everyone loved the drinks he served. He was very professional and served up several drinks quickly the entire time. Great company, great bartender. Happy customer.

We hired Luke to bartend our welcome dinner on the rooftop of our apartment building and his service was exceptional. Luke provided the physical bar, ice, and water, and served drinks for our event. We provided all of the alcohol and mixers with Luke's guidance and everything worked beautifully. We did not run out of anything including water or ice and guests never had to wait long for a drink. Set up and cleanup were taken care of and the price of his service was extremely reasonable and affordable. We will definitely be using him again for our next party! Thanks for your help Smoking Gun!

Shane was an amazing bartender. Definitely going to hire again on our next event. We had a 90s themed party and he dressed the part he was very attentive to the guests. I even have guests asking for his information that's how great he was. Smoking Gun Bar Staffing is 5 star definitely worth investing in them. Affordable prices and great service. Shane u were amazing. Luke u were amazing as well. Helping me figure out my menu with answering all my questions I had in a timely manner. U guys are amazing.

  • What should the customer know about your pricing (e.g., discounts, fees)?

    The hourly rate includes a fully certified and insured bartender (or server) as well as a full bar kit including ice scoop, mixing tins, jiggers, stirring spoons etc. Available upon request: THE SMOKING GUN, cocktail smoker... the coolest feature of any mobile bar service. A gun that literally makes your drink smoke, while at the same time adding a delicious hickory flavor to some of your favorite cocktails. We also offer mobile bar rentals, glassware, coolers, liquor service, ice service and garnish for an additional cost.

  • How did you get started doing this type of work?

    Ten years ago I worked my way up in a local sports bar from barback and busboy to lead bartender. I also became certified in the art of mixology. I knew it was something I loved immediately but took a break to pursue a position in a different customer service based industry. A couple of years later I decided to pursue event Bartending to combine my passion of Bartending with my love for event planning and coordinating. It wasn’t long before I started running the company that hired me for events, booking and communicating with customers as well as creating menus and cocktail themes for their events. In that time I grew the company from ten events a weekend to over sixty. One thing I realized after that growth was that when you are that large you cannot possibly show each and every customer the full attention necessary to guarantee a five star job, as well as hand pick each staff member. I decided to start my own company a couple of years ago and have since enjoyed the business much more and have given nothing short of a five star experience to anybody.

  • What types of customers have you worked with?

    I have worked with everybody from joint catering companies, small groups in apartments, large weddings and festivals, music concerts, conventions, political events including for the mayor and numerous celebrity events.
