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.

My fiancé and I got in touch with Tom to provide bartending service at our upcoming wedding rehearsal dinner. Tom is very organized, kind, and knowledgeable! One of the things we loved about Tom is that he was able to provide us with a portable bar and other items that most places typically have a hard time supplying! This was fantastic because due to our rehearsal dinner location, we wouldn’t have access to a regular bar. I would recommend him to anyone looking for great service at a fair value. We are so excited to have him for our event in May- I will be sure to update further after our event takes place! :)

Details: 26 - 50 guests • Special occasion • Low key / casual • Private residence • Liquor / mixed drinks • Beer • Wine • Non-alcoholic beverages • Bartender will need to bring the bar • Tip jars allowed • Ice • Glassware • Disposable cups • Coolers • Setup / cleanup

Tom was the bartender for our wedding 02/20/2022 and was absolutely amazing. From the first interaction during the planning phase Tom was quick to respond to any and all questions, knowledgeable, and informed us what would keep the night running smoothly. Setting up the day of the wedding Tom was extremely helpful from the moment he arrived. He had brought a partner to help set up the bar area, made suggestions of what would look better, and helped take the stress off such a hectic morning. Additionally without asking Tom had a great idea to set a bottle of wine at each table to ensure our guests had a drink during the dances and speeches. During the reception Tom and his partner came to The Bride and Me and poured us our first drink, a small gesture but one that showed us he was there for us bc and wanted the day to be special. There was never a line for the guests to get drinks, and every guest I talked to had nothing but praise for how professional and just how cool of people Tom and his partner were. Tom truly made our day special and we cannot recommend him enough.

Details: 126 - 150 guests • Wedding reception • Formal / elegant • Public venue • Beer • Wine • Venue will already have a bar • Tip jars allowed • Setup / cleanup • Ice

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!!

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.
