Introduction: I am a very experienced bartender, and I am fully insured. I provide outstanding, friendly services in the Bay Area and beyond. I will provide you with references, a contract, and my proof of insurance. I mix a mean cocktail, and I have a gift for the gab, which comes from years of being a journalist. Strengths? Mixing great drinks for customers and charming them with my wit.

Bartending

Tom is absolutely amazing! He is incredibly responsive and helpful. He played a big role in helping create our dream wedding. If I ever have another event where I need to hire a bartender, it will absolutely be Tom. If you are searching for a bartender who is reliable, responsive, kind and professional Tom is your guy! Thank you Tom so much for helping make our day so special!!

Bartending

Tom and his assistant were great! Tom was responsive, professional and punctual. He arrived earlier than expected to set up the portable bar and glassware I rented through him. He was ready to go when the first guest arrived. Their drinks were solid, my husband and many of the guest mentioned how good the drinks were. I told him I was having a Great Gatsby themed party and he and the bar back showed up in professional bartender attire. I had approximately 81 guests and there was never more than two or three people in line for a drink. I would definitely hire him again. As a matter of fact several guests asked for his contact information. Thank you Tom for making my birthday party fun and stress free!

Tom bar tended for my wedding and he was exceptional. He was prompt and incredibly helpful with bringing ice, hauling away our recycling, and serving our guests. Tom was incredibly easy to work with and we would easily hire him again.

Tom did an excellent job. He made sure our guests always had a drink in hand. They also did an awesome job of bussing the tables. Thanks Tom!

We had a fabulous experience and would absolutely hire Tom again. He was so helpful before our event and arrived early and eager to serve. He was friendly and made quick and delicious drinks. His professionalism, personality, talent, and work ethic make him a perfect bartender for any event.

FAQs

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

    To hire me, my requirements are: A minimum of $300 for 3 hours. $70 an hour for each additional hour. The price goes up for parties of 85+, when a second bartender is required. 25% deposit due when I am hired. Payment due in full 30 days before event. *Gratuity appreciated. *Rates may change from January through March

  • What is your typical process for working with a new customer?

    I determine if they need one bartender or two, what the menu will be, if they need glassware, ice, and other questions. I am more experienced than most bartenders, so I can advise on my topics. I explain what is in the Bartending Package: Bar Tools: Bottle openers, corkscrews, waste buckets, pitchers, spill mats, towels, cleaning spray, and ice scoops. Equipment: Pop-up bar, coolers, tubs/buckets, and trash receptacles for the bar area as needed. Materials: Disposable cups, napkins, straws, soft drinks, sparkling water, filtered water, sparkling water, and beer garnishes to support 100 people.

  • What education and/or training do you have that relates to your work?

    I worked in restaurants for 20 years. I am fully insured -- general liability and liquor liability. I have two certificates, a ServSafe Food Handler's Card and a TIPS Certification Card.
