I hired APC valet for a corporate function/party held at my house in the hills in Orange County. Our driveway can be challenging and the extra parking spots are 0.3 miles away. Steve and Randall showed up to our house this last Saturday dressed with black pants and a white shirt. They had a large cone that said Valet and they had a lock box to hold all of our guests keys. They were friendly, professional and experienced. The dress code was important to me too and they were dressed to par. I felt my guests' cars would be in good hands with these two gentlemen. The evening was a success, my guests said the gentlemen that Valeted them were very polite and professional, everybody seemed happy. I will truly hire them again! This was our first time dealing with Eddie the owner of APC Valet company and AE event staff. He was extremely helpful and friendly and his communication skills are top notch. He says he also has staff and bartenders and all kinds of other event services. I will definitely hire his other staff too in the future. I went with a different company for my bar-tending and staffing needs, since I did not know at the time that Eddie had other staff then Valet services. The other company I hired, my bartender showed up 1 1/2 hr late and did not bring a server as hired. I should have completely gone with Eddie's staff instead. Live and learn and I will do it next time. If you are looking for a reputable company with all the insurance and liability coverage, with professional and experienced staff, then this is a company for you! This is what I learned today. They are a full event staff company as well. They just did the grand re opening of the Peterson museum last week. Josee

Tony was so great to work with. I can tell he is a very knowledgeable bartender and he had great recommendations. He didn't end up being my bartender the night of the event but he did send Mickaela, one of his other bartenders and he reassured me that she is one of his best and he was right. Mickaela was very professional, she arrived on time, she dressed according to the theme of the party and her drinks were fantastic. All my guests complimented me about how great she was (and my friends are drinkers!). She was very courteous and really pleasant with everyone. She did a great job. I would highly recommend Tony and his bartenders for anyone having an event.

Rob and one of his bartenders helped serve wine to 400 patrons during our fall fundraising event. Not only was he prompt and courteous, he was also quick to offer help if needed. He and the bartender he brought with him were both professional and dressed for the occasion. I found that he went above and beyond, going as far as to alert me when an entire case of wine had gone bad. He disposed of it for us, and had a kind smile for everyone who requested a drink. I would gladly use his services again, and recommend that if anyone is in need of bartending services, they call Rob Neighbors of Shaken Not Stirred first. Thanks so much, Rob!

*LOOK NO FURTHER* You have found a bartender who will enhance your event by being at the top of her game. We hired MJ for our Superbowl party (which was also our daughter's 3rd birthday). We had over 60 guests. MJ and I had a phone consult and discussed the bar menu. She emailed me a complete grocery list, including the amount of ice and juices/sodas for the kids. She arrived early for our event and had the bar completely set up before the party started. MJ remembered every guest's name and their drink of choice. She had empties thrown out and refills in our guests hands before they could even blink. She made sure waters were available to the guests as the night came to a close. Throughout the party, MJ helped to clean up plates/napkins and food without even being asked. At the end of the night, she helped break down tables and washed every serving dish for us. MJ was much more than a bartender - she was my right hand during this event and because of the way she went ABOVE and BEYOND, I was able to visit with my guests and participate in my daughter's birthday without having to be a full time hostess. If you hire MJ you will NOT regret it. I've hired at least a dozen bartenders over the years and MJ's exquisite level of expertise and service put them all to shame.

I had a Halloween party and I needed a bartender and I decided to hire Caren Solis and right off the bat from the time I talked to her on the phone she was on it!!! She send me an email with what she would need and she always return my emails with all my concerns or questions... I've had bartenders in the past and Caren by far was the best professional bartender I've had till this date!!! She's a class act bartender. I will definitely be having her coming back for our next party!!! All my guess said she was awesome and made some pretty good tasting drinks!!! Thank you Caren for a great time!!!!

Susan and her team were outstanding. Everyone was very professional, polite, helpful, and good-spirited. In addition to this, they showed up on-time and were willing to stay an extra hour because our Fundraiser/Art Show ran longer than expected. I received many compliments regarding the service and the positive attitude of all the Bartenders. I was also very appreciative that they assisted in set-up and clean-up of the event (not a small task - 500 people in attendence). Wild Thyme Catering definitely went above and beyond their responsibilities! I would highly recommend them for any type of event. I look forward to working with them in future.

Open Bar is a great service. Brooke was incredibly responsive to all of our questions and even revised our contract several times as we changed our mind about how many servers we needed! We ended up hiring 2 bartenders, a bar back and a server- all were terrific and earned great reviews from our happy Wedding Celebration attendees. I will definitely use their service again.

I had Smoking Gun as my bartenders at my bachelorette party and I can say it’s the best decision I made for the night. Luke was beyond amazing! He came with his own set up and dressed in all black and was very professional. I had a big party with about 30 girls, every one of them still to this day talks about Luke and the vibe he brought to the party. He took the party to a completely different level. His personality went perfect with my girls. We had a signature drink that he helped come up with and the drinks were flowing and everyone was drunk and having a blast. He even interacted with everyone and even stayed late to help me clean up and interact with the guests. I have no idea what I would of done without him! I will book them in the future for anything else that I need! I highly recommend Luke and Smoking Gun Bartending. Thank you again for an unforgettable night!

Frank was the best bartender I ever had! My server didn't show up and he was such a sweetheart that he just filled in wherever it was necessary. He just fit in so well with everyone. The drinks were awesome as he kept my glass full even though I was busy hosting. I will use him again and again and again! Excellent!

Double Shot went above and beyond, I will absolutely hire them for another event. They took care of every aspect, the bar, the glasses, etc. Elaina was so helpful and responsive, and our bartender was so friendly, handled our large crowd with ease and even helped clean up after the event. My alcohol vendor forgot to deliver ice on the day of the event, one call to Elaina and they got it taken care of for me, seriously life savers! Not to mention their pricing was incredibly competitive. HIGHLY recommend for your event.

We hired Amy to make cocktails and lots of appetizers for my friends bachelorette party. It was such an amazing experience and her food was delicious. She started out with cocktails first which are to die for. She made about 7 different apps which all were amazing! I think her meatballs, salad and turkey sliders were my favorite. We ended up having so much fun with Amy and it was like she was part of our crew. She cleaned everything after and left the house probably cleaner than it was to begin with. We are already planning our next event to have her come back for.

I hired Barspirit after my bartender bailed on me THREE days before my wedding. I had a prior inquiry and quote out from them before but didn't follow up because I thought I had secured a bartender. Long story short, pulled up the quote again, called up Josh and viola! I was back in business. Leading up to the wedding they were extremely communicative and helpful indicating what they would need so that day of, they could set up the bar and start rockin 'n rollin. They were outstanding and all of my guests had nothing but great things to say about them. My mom absolutely loved how nice they were with her and how helpful they were even beyond the bar. I would without hesitation recommend Barspirit to anyone looking for bartending services and I would personally call them again should I ever have the need for bartenders again.

My husband and I had eight weeks to plan two full weddings, occurring in two different states. Understandably, the chaos this caused was a bit of a nightmare. From our very first message, Roger attended to every possible detail, even those we didn't think to approach. We had a very unique reception, which required Roger to be mobile for 80% of the evening. After the festivities began, we discovered our guest count was almost twice than originally expected. Our reception was cramped, our beverage control was a concern with the influx of attendees. Roger went well beyond his duties, accommodating our unexpected difficulties. He not only managed portion control, but, kept a full drink in every guests hands, even the lushes who required more exotic cocktails. Lol My husband and I were even able to send guests home with leftover bottles, a shocking surprise after so many extra guests attending. Roger made sure every single person was happy, even going the extra mile to see that the bride and groom were included. We can't thank this company enough for all of the extra energy and effort that he contributed to our special circumstances. He even extended his hours with us,at the very last minute, without notice. He was very friendly, very professional, from beginning to end. We highly recommend this vendor to all of our family, friends, and fans, especially those who need a bartender for unique events. Great job! Will definitely hire him again.
