Daniel was the absolute best and definitely exceeded my expectations! It was my first time using Thumbtack. He responded with the TOTAL price that also includes his portal bar. His price was beyond reasonable for 4 hours, including an actual bar setup! A lot of other bartenders' quotes I got were per hour quotes that didn't include extras like a portal bar, which meant I would have had to rent additional tables for a front end and back end. Days leading up to the party, he helped me with a grocery list and sent me a few drink ideas. Now to the actual party! He arrived an hour before his scheduled time so that he could set up his portal bar, which let me tell you, added the perfect finishing touches. It just made the whole party look way more nice-he had his own area off to the side with the umbrella and everything. He brought his own ice cheeses and extra mini shot cups. All my family/guest loved him! I had about 50 or so people attend. At times, there would be a group of guests crowding around him for drinks, but he kept the conversation with them going and the laughs flowing while making their drinks. We even ran out of a few bottles of alcohol, but he definitely made it work! The kids even loved the Sheryl Temples and a few other virgin drinks he made for them. He also stayed a while extra and helped clean. Overall, he's the bomb.com, and I couldn't have asked for a better bartender for my boyfriend's 25th birthday!
Yvonne and her bartenders (we had 3 and one barback at our wedding) were awesome!!! Yvonne had several other events on that day but not to worry as her crew were amazing as well. As soon as I spoke with her about the event and she gave us her suggestions, her experience and knowledge showed and we immediately decided to hire At Your Service. Would highly recommend!!
We had 2 bartenders work an 80 person event at our home. Our experience from start to finish was extremely professional. They guided us on everything from how much alcohol to buy to how many staffers we needed to hire. I can highly recommend them.
A huge thanks to Alejandro and his staff for making our party such a huge success!!! Everyone at the party was raving about the cocktails, and how well Alejandro was interacting with everyone. He arrived promptly on time to set up the bar, and everything was perfect by the time the first guest arrived. During the whole party, his staff was moving around and helping with keeping things flowing smoothly. Towards the end of the party, his team even agreed to stay longer to make sure everything was clean before they left. Alejandro is the only bartender I will hire for my future parties!!!
A Plus catering provided a competent team of two servers for our event. They arrived on time, professionally dressed and ready to help. They helped with plating and passing our appetizers and dessert, gathering used plates and glasses, and rinsing and stacking our rental items. Overall they did a solid job.
Michael was such a fun addition to our backyard luau engagement party. He has a great upbeat attitude and absolutely elevated the event. He even wore a hawaiian shirt at our request! I highly recommend him for your event.
Worked with Camille to create a master plan for our food service and bartending for our wedding reception. She was incredibly resourceful every step of the way. We wound up hiring her team for food service, bartending, and also rented glassware from her team. The entire staff had great energy and really added to the fun atmosphere we sought to create for our guests. I even joined the bartenders behind the bar because they had such great energy. BEST EVENT STAFF TEAM!! And their pricing is incredibly reasonable. Loved working with Liquid Happiness!
Karoline Lazar was AWESOME! Our family tends to get a little rowdy during our celebrations but Karoline was up for the challenge and left everyone asking "How did you find her?" She even created a specialty cocktail for our event! She did a great job working within my supply budget and was able to ensure we all had a great time! I will definitely be using Karoline for our next big event!
These guys are pros, and a pleasure to work with. David is a super creative guy, and works with the best bartenders I've had the pleasure to work with - and I have had previous experience in the Beverage Industry by way of helping get a bar/club off the ground and DJ-ing there for years. The most important aspect, in my opinion, is an problem solving attitude - since in these events things do go wrong inevitably, and the key is to not worry about what went wrong and why - but to jump into solving it right away with a positive attitude which is exactly what happened in our experience with David and his crew. Big fan of these guys and looking forward to work with them again next chance I get!
Dustin is an amazing bartender! He is responsive, communicates with clarity, and is very professional. He came almost an hour before his start time to set up. His cocktail menu provided a lot of variety for our guests. His mojitos were super popular! The drinks were fun and delicious! He talks to guests while mixing their drinks and is a fun and pleasant guy. He is one of the best bartenders who we have ever hired for our parties. He is worth every dime and more! This dude is a first class bartender! Thank you Dustin!
The bartender that came was very friendly and I appreciate the job she did. However I felt she was either very inexperienced or not that motivated. It took her almost an hour before she really got around to making drinks, at which point people seemed to be ordering them just to help her along. Then I realized that some of the drinks were not looking pretty at all, and it turned out that one of the three recipes I had sent beforehand didn't print out all the way. Later that night I also noticed the simple syrup was barely used, making me think that the second drink was not prepared right, which everyone said was "too strong".. basically was not sweet enough. Point is, she should have tested her drinks before giving them out, and at minimum verified that they resembled the photos. She should also know what blue curaçao is and how to pronounce it before telling guests. And finally, other more experienced bartenders took initiative to find needed ingredients in the cabinet rather than stop me from hosting every 10 minutes to find them. Overall, this company offered 4 hours of service when I only asked for 3, and came prepared with garnishes which is a pretty big time saver. If this had been a basic serve drinks kind of affair, it would have been perfectly fine.
Stop wasting your time and hire Able Bartenders! Bill and his team were outstanding, very professional, and truly a pleasure to work with. Bill has A LOT of experience and can give you tips/recommendations to make your event a success. For example, he has a special cocktail drink that's so tasty we incorporated it as one our signature drinks. He also offered to buy ingredients for us to make our day less hectic and because of the depth of his experience he knows where to go to buy the best products and the best prices. It was seriously such a pleasure to get to know him and his team, and we definitely plan on using Able Bartenders again.
Kristine was exactly what I was looking for in a Bartender. She was professional and extremely helpful and creative with her drinks.She was confident and new what she was doing. I never had to worry about anything and her contribution made the party a great success !
Prestige Bartending is AMAZING!!!! After hours of searching for a company that provided a hosted bar service at a fair price, I finally ran across Prestige Bartending. Not only were there prices are reasonable, Victoria the manager was very responsive and sent us a quote immediately. On the day of the event, the two bartenders came on time and were so professional and friendly. We received a lot of compliments on how great they were. If anyone needs a hosted bar with great prices and a professional staff look no further. Thank you guys for making our event so fun and successful.
Angelica was great! Friendly and professional. I appreciated how efffiect and knowledgeable she was in her skill of setting up, mixing and breaking down the bar area with little to no direction. She completed my team of servers and bartenders and helped make my catering service a big success! I will definitely use her again for future catering jobs! Thanks again Angelica!
Working with Vic was amazing. I will never have a party again without him there! He was extremely communicative, responsive, clear, upfront about pricing, etc - and then he took care of everything, from planning the menu to getting all the drinks and ice, set up and clean up. It was a HUGE load off of me and everyone loved him and the set up was amazing (oh and by the way, he's also a great bartender! And flexible too - we had a lot of kids going up and wanting nonalocholhic drinks and he totally made that work, and they were delicious). A++++++
Jenny was our bartender for our 20th anniversary. She was very professional, pleasant, knowledgeable and worked very hard to take care of our guests. She worked in harmony with the waiter and other helper I had. She took care of any work needed to be done during dinner for smooth and pleasant party. I recommend her to all my friends and family and will hire her again for my next party. Thank you Jenny.
Our bartender was very warm, friendly and helpful. We really enjoyed our experience with Bay Area bartenders!
Scotty was AWESOME! He showed up very early and did all the bar setting up, even brought extra flowers in case I didn't have anything. He is adorable and friendly and some guests even asked for his info so they can use him in the future. He was more reasonably priced than other bartenders I considered, (he should raise his prices) but that was not a reflection of his quality! He has a good eye and offered to help with setting food out before the guests arrived, after he was finished setting up the bar. He also turned on my electric candles for me during the party without me even asking him to, after it got dark and I forgot about them! I was a little nervous because I haven't used Thumbtack before and Scotty didn't have as many reviews here, but I feel so lucky to have found him and will definitely hire him again at my next party!
Jeremy makes amazing cocktails tasted as good as those I paid $12+ each at the bar! And the hourly rate for his service is lower compared to most other bartenders. Great value!
Very smooth ride with Lisa and her team of bartenders. She catered an event I ran for 200 people without a hitch. Highly recommend Bar Lisa Events.
