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!Aug 18, 2019Verified

Thanks Again for making our event a success!Jul 28, 2019Verified
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.Jul 15, 2019Verified
I hired two bartenders from SGBS and am so glad I did! I was a little apprehensive having never met Luke and hiring him over email/phone communication only, but he was very personable and responsive so we went for it! I am so glad we did! He answered countless questions I had, did everything my venue required, and all at an EXTREMELY reasonable cost! I bought my own alcohol and he served it, he even did a signature drink for us at my request at the last minute. If you want affordable and professional use them!Jan 16, 2019Verified

- 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.
