Daniel wasn't perfect. Made delicious drinks, offers more than bartenders typically do with shopping list, drink recommendations, his own bar, and all the AMAZING materials he brings that he makes himself. He made a hibiscus syrup that our guests were crazy about, and cocktails that people couldn't get enough of. I couldn't possibly have asked for more! Definitely will be using him for future events.

My sister and I absolutely loved Yvonne! We hired her + an additional bartender and server. All three women were incredible! Made us delicious drinks for our guests and had positive attitudes and smiles the entire time! Would definitely use Yvonne again and also recommend her service to friends. Looking forward to using Yvonne in the future! We are both very very happy with the outcome of our party and our friends could not stop raving about our bartenders. Thank you!

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.

Alejandro was very professional and easy to work with the entire time leading up to the party and during. He helped come up with a cocktail menu and all of them were hits at the party. Easy to reach and answered all my questions in a timely manner.

I had a rehearsal dinner on Friday and reception on Saturday. Both required bartenders. TreVhon worked the rehearsal dinner well. He responded quickly to our requests and made the evening smooth. Armando worked the reception. He was exceptional. He worked all the tables and made sure everyone had a full glass. Highly recommend. Thanks gentleman for your fine work!

Michael was simply fantastic. He did everything expected of a bartender for a fairly large (40 people) party, then went above and beyond - - helping with clearing dishes, cleaning up as people left and taking the initiative on things that needed to be done with no instruction. He stayed around afterward and got the place in great shape! I highly recommend Michael and will surely use him again.

We realized just a few weeks within our wedding that we were required to hire a bartender. Thankfully, Liquid Happiness was still available! Jerremi was extremely responsive, sent over a (very reasonable) quote quickly, and listened patiently as I attempted to explain our ideal service (our venue had an odd layout and we wanted 2 bars at different times). On top of that, my husband is a craft beer nut, so we gave Jerremi a giant menu of 8 different beers, plus wine and mixed drinks. On the day of, everything went beyond our expectations. First, Jerremi and his team arrived earlier than discussed, which was extremely helpful. Second, they way they set up the bar with the bins they used for cooling drinks were actually visually appealing. Most importantly, both bartenders were so lovely and charming - they built rapport with our guests quickly, which really helped make the atmosphere laid back and fun - exactly what we were looking for. On top of that, they handled our unique menu with expertise and the mixed drinks were delicious! Hiring Liquid Happiness for our wedding was one of the best decisions we made!

Dustin was bartender for my small house party and it was so nice not having to worry about the bar all night. He was on time, stayed until late, and cleaned up. He was perfectly friendly and welcoming to my guests. I'm hiring him for my next party, for sure.

Bill, and his company Able Bartenders, were perfect for our event. He communicated fully leading up to the event and the two staff he sent preformed their responsibilities to our complete satisfaction. We will definitely use Able Bartenders for any future event.

I am so thankful I found bar on the vine via thumbtack! Kristine was very responsive and helpful since the day I reached out to her until the day of our wedding. Kristine and her team took care of my wedding this past weekend and I was truly amazed by her service and attention to detail. Extremely professional and such a sweetheart! My day of coordinator and guests raved about how good the bartenders were. Would highly recommend!

We hired Flavors of Magick to bartend at my husband's 50's birthday party. The experience was exceptional from start to finish. When I stated that we were having a tiki theme, Stacy was enthusiastic about the prospect and helped up to build an exciting and varied drink menu. She checked in regularly leading up to the event and I was comfortable and confident that all was going to go smoothly. The day of the event she (and her helper) showed up in plenty of time to help with the bar setup and to review the drink menus and get everything settled before guests arrived. We had a good sized crowd of 'professional drinkers' and Stacy and her crew kept them all from going thirsty as well as kept them entertained with her amazing attitude. She executed the complicated tiki drinks with style and aplomb - and improvised as needed. When the party didn't 'wind down' when we expected she checked in with me, and we were able to easily negotiate an extension her original quote so that I could continue to enjoy the party and our guests without having to worry about the bar and drinks. Overall I am beyond pleased with the experience. I would use Flavors of Magick again, and would whole hardheartedly recommend them to anyone looking for bartenders in the future.

I plan corporate b2b events for event professionals, it's a hard task to impress those that are always looking to impress their audiences. I stumbled across sharpshooter and after using them the first time, I quickly booked them for another event. They offer cocktails and service that make you feel as though you are sitting in a fancy cocktail bar, watching the mixologist work their magic. From dry iced punch bowls to carefully crafted concoctions to beautiful presentations presented with a smile, Sharpshooter easily beats out all competitive bartenders I have used in my career.

I highly recommend Jennifer to anyone who is looking for an incredibly competent and hard working professional with the expertise and experience to do it all: from bartender, to chef, to party planner and manager. I hired Jennifer to help me with all aspects of hosting Thanksgiving dinner for 20 people, and from the moment she arrived, she hit the ground running and jumped right in. Not only was she able to handle a high volume of work quickly and efficiently (she can hustle!!), she was also able to think on her feet and effectively handle the expected -- and the unexpected (like one of our ovens going out!) -- with ease and a calm, positive disposition. I could count on her to pull off a wonderful event, and I don't know what I would have done without her! If you hire Jennifer to help you with any and all aspects of hosting an event, you won't be disappointed -- she's amazing!!

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!

My friends and I hired Julian for a mixology lesson, and he was simply outstanding! Julian suggested two great cocktails - the sazerac and the cherry blossom flip - and did a great job teaching, bartending, and creating a chill and fun atmosphere. He truly is jubilant - his warmth, sparkling personality, quick wit, and enthusiasm for his craft made for a truly memorable evening!
