Shannon bartended for our wedding of 60… She was awesome. Prompt, friendly, knowledgeable, and just a great person. Also the best Spiced Mule in town...Mar 16, 2017Verified
Shannon was awesome. She managed to keep everyone happy (myself and my wife certainly) and we ended up with only a little bit of wine left over which was perfect. Awesome bartender!Jun 16, 2016Verified

Shannon with BarFly Beverage Solutions bartended our wedding on April 1, 2017 in Del Mar. She provided outstanding service and created a positive and memorable experience for myself, husband and our wedding guests. She did everything that was asked of her and more! She went above and beyond to ensure that ourselves and guests were happy, and did things for me personally on the day of and prior to our wedding. Many times throughout our wedding night, guests approached me to let me know how awesome our bartender was! I highly recommend Shannon to bartend any event and will most definitely use her again. She is very sweet, responsive and responsible. She made a lasting impression on me and my guests. 5-star rating across the board! Thank you, Shannon!!!May 10, 2017Verified
We hired Shannon for our son's wedding April 9, 2016. With the first phone call we knew Shannon was the bartender to hire. She was able to give us a true idea of what to expect as far as what to order for the amount of people for our event. She went over and beyond the call of duty to pick up our order and supplies and made it completely worry free. She arrived early to set up. Both Shannon and her helper were so personable with our guests and we recieved so many complements on their services. We would hire her again and recommend Bar Fly Solutions to anyone needing bartendng services! Shannon you rock it!May 9, 2016
- What is your typical process for working with a new customer?When working with a new customer, the first thing I do is identify their needs and expectations. Once identified, we formulate a plan and service agreement that works with their budget, time, location, etc. Every event is unique and I like to work with people as closely as possible so that we really focus on creating the type of experience they are looking for, all things considered.
- What education and/or training do you have that relates to your work?I started in the service industry waiting tables at 15 years old and have worked in the Food and Beverage business ever since. I started in restaurants and bars and then moved on to catering, working for the Wild Thyme Company (fantastic San Diego based caterer!) as an operations manager. I moved to Oceanside in 2011 and started my own business, BarFly Beverage Solutions, providing event beverage and bar services across San Diego County. Education: Bachelor of Science in Business/Marketing, Associate of Arts in Hospitality Management & Certificate of Proficiency in Meeting & Event Planning,
- What advice would you give a customer looking to hire a provider in your area of work?Be sure to hire a real professional! There are lots of bartenders out there, but consider the amount of interaction your bartender is going to have with your guests and the impact that has on the overall vibe of your event. This is not an area where you want to leave it to chance. Know who you are getting.
