Introduction: I develop and deliver custom cocktails for weddings, birthday parties, corporate events, or any other celebration. I use seasonal, fresh ingredients and make all my own syrups, tinctures, shrubs, etc. I enjoy working with my clients to develop a menu that suits their event. I offer a discounted rate to pour simple cocktails (vodka & soda, gin & tonic, etc.), and beer/wine. You can hire me with confidence. I am professional, efficient, and clean. I have 12 years experience as a bartender and 15 years experience in hospitality and I recently managed one of the top cocktail bars in the South Bay. I'm self-insured, LEAD certified, California Food Handler certified, vaccinated, and I speak Spanish as a second language.

We hired Darren as the bartender for our New Year's Eve wedding, and it was one of the best decisions we made for our big day. He helped us come up with our signature drinks, which were very popular at our event (we loved how he used fresh ingredients and festive toppers!). He helped us figure out the right amount of alcohol, chasers, ice, and mixers to buy so that we were well-prepared for the night. He was also adaptable. Our venue didn’t provide any bar essentials, but that didn’t faze him. He seamlessly managed the bar setup, making sure everything ran smoothly. We wanted to avoid having our guests wait in long lines and Darren made sure that was never the case. Working with him has been so seamless and amazing. Hiring Los Gatos Cocktail Co was one of the best decisions of our wedding. We couldn’t have asked for a better person to handle our bar. Thank you, Darren, for your outstanding service and for making our wedding night even more special!

Darren and Tricia were fantastic! The cocktail menu for our wedding was very high end, all of our guests were raving about the bar service. The homemade mixers were an excellent touch, it elevated the entire experience. We couldn’t be happier with their service and would recommend them to anyone looking for a bartender in the area!

Darren was phenomenal and I’m so grateful he agreed to bartend our engagement party. He spent time with us to discuss our cocktail preferences ahead of time, was flexible and patient, he came over an hour early for set up, and helped out with clean up. He was incredibly professional, friendly, and made a delicious cocktail. I HIGHLY recommend Darren for any of your bartending needs!
