I hired APC valet for a corporate function/party held at my house in the hills in Orange County. Our driveway can be challenging and the extra parking spots are 0.3 miles away. Steve and Randall showed up to our house this last Saturday dressed with black pants and a white shirt. They had a large cone that said Valet and they had a lock box to hold all of our guests keys. They were friendly, professional and experienced. The dress code was important to me too and they were dressed to par. I felt my guests' cars would be in good hands with these two gentlemen. The evening was a success, my guests said the gentlemen that Valeted them were very polite and professional, everybody seemed happy. I will truly hire them again! This was our first time dealing with Eddie the owner of APC Valet company and AE event staff. He was extremely helpful and friendly and his communication skills are top notch. He says he also has staff and bartenders and all kinds of other event services. I will definitely hire his other staff too in the future. I went with a different company for my bar-tending and staffing needs, since I did not know at the time that Eddie had other staff then Valet services. The other company I hired, my bartender showed up 1 1/2 hr late and did not bring a server as hired. I should have completely gone with Eddie's staff instead. Live and learn and I will do it next time. If you are looking for a reputable company with all the insurance and liability coverage, with professional and experienced staff, then this is a company for you! This is what I learned today. They are a full event staff company as well. They just did the grand re opening of the Peterson museum last week. Josee

Tony was so great to work with. I can tell he is a very knowledgeable bartender and he had great recommendations. He didn't end up being my bartender the night of the event but he did send Mickaela, one of his other bartenders and he reassured me that she is one of his best and he was right. Mickaela was very professional, she arrived on time, she dressed according to the theme of the party and her drinks were fantastic. All my guests complimented me about how great she was (and my friends are drinkers!). She was very courteous and really pleasant with everyone. She did a great job. I would highly recommend Tony and his bartenders for anyone having an event.

Rob and one of his bartenders helped serve wine to 400 patrons during our fall fundraising event. Not only was he prompt and courteous, he was also quick to offer help if needed. He and the bartender he brought with him were both professional and dressed for the occasion. I found that he went above and beyond, going as far as to alert me when an entire case of wine had gone bad. He disposed of it for us, and had a kind smile for everyone who requested a drink. I would gladly use his services again, and recommend that if anyone is in need of bartending services, they call Rob Neighbors of Shaken Not Stirred first. Thanks so much, Rob!

JaNae was great- She brought a table for our bar which we don't know what we would do without. She was attentive, classy, professional and very personable. She even went above and beyond when a guest spilled wine across the hall and she really went out of the way to clean it up. I can not thank her enough and I know we will be using here again and again!

Los Angeles Bartenders were very professional. Andrew was on top of things from the moment I contacted him. He helped us with our cocktail menu and with the shopping list. Melissa showed up on time and was very professional. She did a great job. Our guests were happy. We would definitely recommend Los Angeles Bartenders

*LOOK NO FURTHER* You have found a bartender who will enhance your event by being at the top of her game. We hired MJ for our Superbowl party (which was also our daughter's 3rd birthday). We had over 60 guests. MJ and I had a phone consult and discussed the bar menu. She emailed me a complete grocery list, including the amount of ice and juices/sodas for the kids. She arrived early for our event and had the bar completely set up before the party started. MJ remembered every guest's name and their drink of choice. She had empties thrown out and refills in our guests hands before they could even blink. She made sure waters were available to the guests as the night came to a close. Throughout the party, MJ helped to clean up plates/napkins and food without even being asked. At the end of the night, she helped break down tables and washed every serving dish for us. MJ was much more than a bartender - she was my right hand during this event and because of the way she went ABOVE and BEYOND, I was able to visit with my guests and participate in my daughter's birthday without having to be a full time hostess. If you hire MJ you will NOT regret it. I've hired at least a dozen bartenders over the years and MJ's exquisite level of expertise and service put them all to shame.

I had a Halloween party and I needed a bartender and I decided to hire Caren Solis and right off the bat from the time I talked to her on the phone she was on it!!! She send me an email with what she would need and she always return my emails with all my concerns or questions... I've had bartenders in the past and Caren by far was the best professional bartender I've had till this date!!! She's a class act bartender. I will definitely be having her coming back for our next party!!! All my guess said she was awesome and made some pretty good tasting drinks!!! Thank you Caren for a great time!!!!

Susan and her team were outstanding. Everyone was very professional, polite, helpful, and good-spirited. In addition to this, they showed up on-time and were willing to stay an extra hour because our Fundraiser/Art Show ran longer than expected. I received many compliments regarding the service and the positive attitude of all the Bartenders. I was also very appreciative that they assisted in set-up and clean-up of the event (not a small task - 500 people in attendence). Wild Thyme Catering definitely went above and beyond their responsibilities! I would highly recommend them for any type of event. I look forward to working with them in future.

Shawn was great. He called the day before to check in, came to the event prepared for anything (which was great! And was utilized!). He went above and beyond bartender duties to assist the caterer and others. Will use again for sure!

Great experience all around! I looked at a few bartenders for our wedding of ~150 ppl and although Open Bar wasn't the least expensive, we still went with them bc Brooke's communication was so on point. If anyone was ever slow to reply it was us, never her. She worked within the constraint of our venue (a church) to only serve wine and champagne and she came up with a great menu of mixed drinks that worked out really well and gave our guests lots of options. She worked with us to come up with a shopping list which was helpful too since we don't know anything about drinks. She was punctual, professional, and we had no complaints about the drinks or service. We used two bartenders and they were able to not only pour champagne for our guests but also tend the bar without a hitch. Would highly recommend!!

I had Smoking Gun as my bartenders at my bachelorette party and I can say it’s the best decision I made for the night. Luke was beyond amazing! He came with his own set up and dressed in all black and was very professional. I had a big party with about 30 girls, every one of them still to this day talks about Luke and the vibe he brought to the party. He took the party to a completely different level. His personality went perfect with my girls. We had a signature drink that he helped come up with and the drinks were flowing and everyone was drunk and having a blast. He even interacted with everyone and even stayed late to help me clean up and interact with the guests. I have no idea what I would of done without him! I will book them in the future for anything else that I need! I highly recommend Luke and Smoking Gun Bartending. Thank you again for an unforgettable night!

Double Shot went above and beyond, I will absolutely hire them for another event. They took care of every aspect, the bar, the glasses, etc. Elaina was so helpful and responsive, and our bartender was so friendly, handled our large crowd with ease and even helped clean up after the event. My alcohol vendor forgot to deliver ice on the day of the event, one call to Elaina and they got it taken care of for me, seriously life savers! Not to mention their pricing was incredibly competitive. HIGHLY recommend for your event.

We hired Amy to make cocktails and lots of appetizers for my friends bachelorette party. It was such an amazing experience and her food was delicious. She started out with cocktails first which are to die for. She made about 7 different apps which all were amazing! I think her meatballs, salad and turkey sliders were my favorite. We ended up having so much fun with Amy and it was like she was part of our crew. She cleaned everything after and left the house probably cleaner than it was to begin with. We are already planning our next event to have her come back for.

Nikki’s a great bartender. She was able to turn around cocktails fast to guests. She’s quick at responding to you via email and she made it easy to pay her (by providing PayPal as an option for the deposit). The guests loved how we had someone shake them up drinks, and it was a relief we didn’t have to make them ourselves. I’m happy Nikki was available and provided us with excellent and friendly service!
