    I hired Mia for my father's 60th birthday party, and she was AWESOME! She made the whole process very easy. She always kept in contact to make sure I was doing ok with the planning. During the party she was very fast and friendly, kept the guests entertained with her juggling skills! She was a joy to be around, I would definitely hire Mia again! I was extremely satisfied with her and her service!

  6. #6 Shaken Not Stirred

    (63 reviews)

    Alison M.

    We hired Rob for my parents 35th wedding anniversary party. It was a casual affair with margaritas, festive decorations, a taco cart and 50 of my parents closest friends and family. Rob was professional, detail oriented, sociable, and personable throughout the event. Oh and he makes great drinks! We set aside time to connect prior to the event to draft a plan as well as a shopping list to ensure we had what we needed to guarantee a good time was had by all. He offered to bring ingredients to make Jalepeño Margaritas and those were devoured in the first couple hours! His ability to manage the bar allowed myself and my parents to celebrate with the guests who had come to celebrate with us. That is priceless. We will definitely look to Rob for our next event and have already made referrals to friends of ours for his services. Highly recommended! Thank you Rob!

Thumbtack Spotlight

Jill Tizekker

(8 reviews)

What do you love about your job?

I love this business. I love the connection that I make with people. I have a natural server's heart to please. I don't just create a cocktail; I create an experience. This is what I do best. This is me. I truly believe that how you make a person feel defines how they critique your service. I want you to feel like the most important person at the event. You are my special guest.

What or who inspired you to start your own business?

After transferring to Los Angeles from Portland, OR, I found myself reediting myself. I realized that it is up to me to create my own path. I wanted to share my unique style with people on a more intimate level. The best way to do this is in private venues. You can really see me for what I am about, and I get the opportunity to come into your environment. Together, we forge a path towards a lasting relationship. Life is short. Forget about the lemonade, and grab your stilettos and a cocktail.

    Ashlynne B.

    I hired Tony's company for my birthday and he was incredible. From the first phone call and everything in between I could not have asked for a better person to work with. Planning a birthday can be very stressful, but he made the process so much fun! Clarissa was my bartender and she was great! She was early to set up and made really tasty drinks! It could not have gone any better. I can't thank Tony enough for making my birthday experience so special! I would absolutely hire him again and If you're looking for a great bartender with excellent experience I would undoubtedly recommend Tony! Thank you Tony for everything! Happy Holidays!

    Shawn was awesome he provided all the information needed the shopping list was perfect. We served beer wine and only a couple cocktail choices. One was a suggestion from Shawn called a cucumber cooler which was similar to a Motito. It was a hit its been a few weeks since the wedding and I am still getting comments on the drink and how to make it. Thank you Shawn for your patients while I was making up my mind on things for picking up the garnishments. To anyone reading this review be smart and hire Shawn my self and my guests will use him again and again😃

    Tamara started by helping me with just the bartender which was a good start. Then she asked me if I needed anything else and there were many other things she ended up doing, from delivering a bar with accessories, hiring waitresses, providing glasses, and trays for food service. She was prompt, courteous, and always eager to please. I look forward to having her help me throw many more parties in the future.

    Serena P.

    Justin bartended for a party at my home to celebrate passing the bar exam and he did an excellent job! He worked from 6:30 p.m. to around midnight, was on time and quickly set up. We had provided all the alcohol and fruits, which he prepared to garnish the drinks. He also provided a list of all the ingredients I would need for the legal-themed cocktail list that I created for my party, which was extremely helpful. I appreciated his assistance with that as well as his creative ideas to make the drinks taste even better (honey vodka and pear liqueur to make pear martinis was a great idea!). The party included a mix of young law grads, a few kids under 21 and older adult family members and friends. Justin did a great job of catering to that crowd of different ages and even made a few spontaneous virgin drinks for my young cousins. Justin was punctual, personable, creative, and an overall great bartender! I would definitely hire him again and you should too! :)

    Daniel and his wife are simply amazing! We asked them to bartend to our wedding. Everyone was saying how great the drinks were! He was extremely professional and so easy to work with. He even checked in periodically as the day got closer to ask if we needed anything. He helped develop of list of alcohol that we needed and also create a signature cocktail for our wedding. The day of the event we found out that some of the alcohol had been stolen the night before at the venue. Daniel handled the situation really well and worked with our coordinators so that he could get what he needed. That was truly impressive! Also, I just love that his wife works with him! I think it made our wedding day even more special having an awesome husband and wife team working together! We would definitely hire him again for a future event!
