Hired Michael for a Halloween birthday party for about 35 guests. Drinks were poured quickly and with professionalism. He even stayed late to help clean up the house. Brought his own bartending equipment. All I had to do was provide the supplies. Would highly recommend.Nov 3, 2018VerifiedMichael David Fleitell's reply
Hey Charles, Thanks again for having me back. Very grateful for the Lyft ride this time. I'm having a house warming party of my own soon and you're invited.

Man I can't tell you how much Michael made our party a MAJORRRR success. Is my major a bit much, yes but I really have to give this man mad props. Very kind and very truthful. Never tries to BS you and always tells you what you need and never what you don't. When he gives you a list of what to get, don't doubt and do yourself a favor, GET IT!!! Michael we will be back St. Patty's weekend and you already know who I'll be calling for that. Hope your schedule is free to help us with the drinks again that Saturday. Thanks buddy you are truly a gem to all mixologists out there.Feb 7, 2019VerifiedMichael David Fleitell's reply
Thanks so much Solomon. It was such a pleasure to be a part of your friends' double 30th birthday. I can't wait to see you guys in March!

Michael is amazing. He was unable to work our party but recommended a friend who was outstanding and really made our party a hit. Such a lifesaver, totally recommend him. Friendly and very professional!Dec 16, 2018VerifiedMichael David Fleitell's reply
No Lindsay, you're amazing. Says Pierce. I'm so glad I was able to help you guys out.

David went above and beyond by helping me design special drinks for the night. He clearly knows his craft, all guests at our party were delighted with his drinks. David was very professional, respectful, resourceful and swift. Will definitely love to have him on future parties and 100% recommend him.Nov 1, 2018Verified

I wish I can give Michael more than 5 stars because he went above and beyond his duties. He knew his drinks and was quick making them. I would hire Michael again with no problem and everyone at the party loved him. He was worth his price and I would recommend him to everyone I know. Thanks Michael for making my wife's 40th birthday party memorable. Jesse R.Oct 24, 2018VerifiedMichael David Fleitell's reply
Thanks Jesse. Jesse is my first verified review on thumbtack. And his party is still one of the best I've ever worked in the ten years I've been doing this. Great crowd. Great vibes. Just happy to have been a part of it.
- What should the customer know about your pricing (e.g., discounts, fees)?My hourly rate includes set up and clean up and I'm always free to answer any questions or address any concerns you may have between hiring me and the day I show up to work. While my hourly rate may be on the lower side, I expect to make up for it with my skill and knowledge and proficiency behind the bar. And since this work is competitive, I do expect a deposit for larger events or ones booked more than a week or so ahead of time but that can always be negotiated. I really do love being behind the bar and I take a lot of pride in knowing your event is going to go that much better once you hire me.
- What is your typical process for working with a new customer?I always want to talk to my clients by phone or even in person if it's a big job with a lot of time for preparation to see if we're a good fit for each other. I like to tell you exactly who I am and what I do and what I'm good at to make sure it's a good fit for both of us. And with a small amount of time I'll be able to walk you through whatever steps necessary to make sure everything is covered so I can do what I've promised. If other workers are needed I'll do hiring on my end and I'll confirm with you immediately. From there, I'll be in touch the best I can to make sure you know what to expect and so that when I show up there will be as little running around or catching up as possible. Ultimately, I hope to be able to show up, set up the bar or the event, have any crew I might need ready, and then go to work so you can enjoy your party with as little stress as possible.
- What education and/or training do you have that relates to your work?I took a bartender course in NJ in my year off between college and law school and considering I had a change of heart career wise after law school, it might be the best education I've ever gotten considering I took the class while still in academic mode. I absorbed a lot and was able to put it to good use almost immediately. And since law school is so much about networking, especially at private parties and corporate functions, you get that much training since you really have to know your clientele and want them to like you without being completely full of it. That's law school and that's bartending.
