    Stir It Up provided the craft cocktails that I was seeking in a timely and professional manner. Quality product for the price!

    Stir it Up did a great job at the event. Professionally handled, they serviced the crowd. Knew how to make all the drinks requested. Just a few reminders to pick up empty plates and napkins was all that was needed for them to be mindful of that. The reason for the lack of 5 stars is not due to the day of performance but the communication before the event. If Patrick can tighten up his front end communication and responsiveness, he'll have a 5 star business.

    Patrick C.'s reply

    Definitely, Communication has been an issue as of late because I am receiving a lot of interest from the public who want Stir It Up to take care of all of their bartending needs. Whether it is doing pop up events all over the place, weddings, galas, house parties, large conventions, etc. Stir It Up is currently doing it all. I have a very unique offering and as a result I am becoming highly sought out as more and more people are realizing that we stick out from the pack. I have been seriously been looking into hiring an assistant to do all of the admin work for me moving forward so I can concentrate on other aspects of the business. I am glad to hear everything else went well though on the day of the event.

About this pro

We are a one stop shop: We have all the licenses, insurance, talent, etc. you need in order to have a complete and successful event in terms of bartending and event support staff. 1. Rentals: Along with sending bartenders and support staff to event we also have basic bar rentals. 2. Knowledge: Patrick and his staff am entrenched and follow the craft bartending movement which I, every day, try to incorporate in my catering services... We can create awesome cocktail menu, we can tell you how much liquor you need to buy, and pretty much everything you need to know in order to make your event successful. 3. ABC license: We are not borrowing anyone's license. The owner Patrick Conlon owns a bar. The bar is in Long Beach called Muldoon's Saloon. We acquired it in 2016 to legally sell liquor offsite to parties. This license allows us to do cash bars and hosted bars or the combination of the two... We can do it throw a 58 license and get 218 catering authorization permits with the ABC. 4. Liquor Laws: My knowledge about how ABC licenses work in regards to off-site/special events. I know what kinds of licenses are needed depending on the circumstances of your event. We know the ins and out of it and how to deal with the Alcohol Beverage Control. The laws surrounding event permitting can be very complicated and we can break it down for you so you do not run into any legal problems. Going to different places all the time: Diversity of experiences: We are always working with different people in different locations. We have been to some beautiful estates and worked some pretty amazing events with people that are just truly amazing. Creativity: You have to be on top of your game to impress clients who have really high standards. Creating really delicious cocktails that always built to perfection. People: Meeting and talking to people of all different kinds of races, religions, and backgrounds. Hearing their stories and taking away from that.

      1. Get a feel for the event and client to start and build a relationship.
