David and GYD Party Services SoCal provided a great overall experience for my company cocktail party. They were professional, helpful, and attentive to our guests, and myself as I was running around getting everything together. We provided our own bar so we only requested their services. I hired two bartenders for a party of about 120 people, which was perfect. David brought all of his own bar "equipment" and some extra things I requested, like pink sugar and some garnishes. I bought the big bottles of alcohol while he was able to bring the liqueurs that were harder to find and expense it on my bill. Just remember to have enough ice and and an ice bucket! I thought he was going to provide that but was mistaken. Luckily we had enough. They arrived early enough for set up and to resolve the ice problem and even stayed later then they should have to help clean the bar. Great overall just double and triple check who is bringing what! Thanks David!

I went to a birthday party over the weekend and Party Link Staffing was working. The bartenders were very nice and helpful plus they made the best drinks. I am hiring them for my husband's birthday party next month!

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.

Bartender Rob Neighbors was hired to service our event on Feb 1st. He showed up 1/2 hr early to set himself up on his time. The celebration was a hit! The turnout of guest that attended were very impressed with our bartender Rob Neighbors. Rob made specialty drinks for guest when requested. His repore with our guest was outstanding. He also walked around when able to pick up empty cups of drinks on the tables. I have hired other bartenders and never recieved this type of excellent service. Rob added that final and important touch to our event by his Professional and Outstanding service. I will be hiring Rob for further events and recommend him if your in need of an excellent service of a professional Bartender, Rob Neighbors is the one to complete and make your Party a Hit for he made are party Funtasmic. Thank you Rob Neighbor!

Los Angeles Bartenders was the first to respond to my inquiry and was a competitive price. Andrew arrived when promised and was well prepared - he had even made a drink list of our offered beverages. He was very busy with our crowd but handled it smoothly and with a great attitude. He was super helpful with the clean up after the event. I strongly recommend Los Angeles Bartenders and I will use them again.

After finding ourselves without a bartender for our housewarming party less than a week out, we were quite a bit stressed. Lucky for us we got hooked up with Jill in the nick of time! She helped mold our cocktail list to be cost effective and crowd pleasing. Communication was fluid and frequent, she even game is a call the morning of the party to check in and make sure everything was okay and to address any last minute questions. Once at the party Jill really started to become the superstar. I kept in hearing. From the guests how amazing Jill was and how she made delicious drinks. Her demeanor is upbeat but with a calm tone, which showed through while effortlessly making drinks for 60+ guests. There was never a long line and there were no I satisfied customers. Jill also helped clean up which was an amazing help, allowing us to focus on our guests and having a good time. LA is a city of thousands of bartenders and searching for the right one can be a daunting task. Leave your worry behind and give Jill a call! You will not be disappointed!

The best bartender EVER! Shawn was on top of the planning, offering other services, such as bar rental, garnishes, etc. He thought of everything so that I didn't have to! He even brought the ice to keep everything cold! I would recommend Shawn anytime and will definitely hire him again for our next party!

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!

Frank did a great job at our party. Everyone loved his drinks and his energy. He came prepared and did an outstanding job. He would serve people's drinks at their tables as well. We will def hire Frank again! You can tell he loves what he is doing and at a party when guests think your bartender was another friend at a party, it is a success! Couldn't have been happier!

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.

Great bartenders! 2 people staff - 150 guests - full bar..they killed it! Successful and fast correspondence and accurate purchasing skills from Bar Angels. Very creative with the cocktail menu and splendid service! Recommending them to everyone. Just let them know briefly what you need and leave it to them!

My husband and I had eight weeks to plan two full weddings, occurring in two different states. Understandably, the chaos this caused was a bit of a nightmare. From our very first message, Roger attended to every possible detail, even those we didn't think to approach. We had a very unique reception, which required Roger to be mobile for 80% of the evening. After the festivities began, we discovered our guest count was almost twice than originally expected. Our reception was cramped, our beverage control was a concern with the influx of attendees. Roger went well beyond his duties, accommodating our unexpected difficulties. He not only managed portion control, but, kept a full drink in every guests hands, even the lushes who required more exotic cocktails. Lol My husband and I were even able to send guests home with leftover bottles, a shocking surprise after so many extra guests attending. Roger made sure every single person was happy, even going the extra mile to see that the bride and groom were included. We can't thank this company enough for all of the extra energy and effort that he contributed to our special circumstances. He even extended his hours with us,at the very last minute, without notice. He was very friendly, very professional, from beginning to end. We highly recommend this vendor to all of our family, friends, and fans, especially those who need a bartender for unique events. Great job! Will definitely hire him again.
