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.

Michael was a great bartender for our recent event! He came up with a great speciality cocktail ahead of time, came early to help set up, did a fantastic job attending to our (30) guests in a smaller space and stayed to help clean up. I would rec him for your next event!

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!

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!

The bartender that came was very friendly and I appreciate the job she did. However I felt she was either very inexperienced or not that motivated. It took her almost an hour before she really got around to making drinks, at which point people seemed to be ordering them just to help her along. Then I realized that some of the drinks were not looking pretty at all, and it turned out that one of the three recipes I had sent beforehand didn't print out all the way. Later that night I also noticed the simple syrup was barely used, making me think that the second drink was not prepared right, which everyone said was "too strong".. basically was not sweet enough. Point is, she should have tested her drinks before giving them out, and at minimum verified that they resembled the photos. She should also know what blue curaçao is and how to pronounce it before telling guests. And finally, other more experienced bartenders took initiative to find needed ingredients in the cabinet rather than stop me from hosting every 10 minutes to find them. Overall, this company offered 4 hours of service when I only asked for 3, and came prepared with garnishes which is a pretty big time saver. If this had been a basic serve drinks kind of affair, it would have been perfectly fine.

Love On the Rocks! & so do my clients... I'm a private chef /caterer whose clients often request bartending to supplement food service. I've outsourced bartending for a good number of private and corporate occasions to OTR, and their bartenders, particularly Matt and David, have delivered both delicious drinks + impeccable service. In addition to being talented barkeepers, they're just genuinely stellar guys who can be trusted and are reliable. They're also keen on developing customized cocktails for your event & providing grocery lists complete with ingredients & quantities based on number of guests. I highly recommend On the Rocks for your next soirée!

Angelica was great! Friendly and professional. I appreciated how efffiect and knowledgeable she was in her skill of setting up, mixing and breaking down the bar area with little to no direction. She completed my team of servers and bartenders and helped make my catering service a big success! I will definitely use her again for future catering jobs! Thanks again Angelica!

We hired Ben Jammin for a very large house party (60 people) and he was amazing!!! His communication and preparation were extremely professional, drink selection was varied & creative, he arrived on time and set up a great bar. My guests loved having him, he not only made great drinks but is extremely fun to have around. His bartending style is professional, creative, lively, and engaging. Many of my guests commented after the party how much they enjoyed having our own personal (awesome!) bartender. Can't wait till we have the chance to throw another big party, we'll be hiring Ben again, for sure!!

Lloyd was fantastic! I planned a party for 300+ people and the bartender I had originally connected with didn't work out a couple days before the event. I contacted Lloyd at the last minute, and I'm so happy I found him. Lloyd was very professional and easy to plan with, and on the day of the event he was smooth and cheerful. He served hundreds of people for 5 hours in a very hectic environment. We were all very impressed. I hope to hire Lloyd again!

Amazing bartenders..yes, the drinks are extremely well made, both Ian & Rosa have the skills and knowledge to make well made, balanced, and fun drinks. But their professionalism and overall helpfulness is what I was truly impressed with. Sharpshooters went above and beyond the services I expected, I would hire them again in a heart beat! cant wait to plan another party just to have them back.

I had thought about having my family reunion without hiring anyone to tend bar, but I have a huge family and everyone was bring friends so at the last minute found In the Mix bartenders. I found them to be very well organized and performed as seasoned professionals from the moment they arrived to well after my last guest departed.They arrived early the day of the event and had their station set up and ready to go in plenty of time for when our guests arrived. Tavia was able to also help out in renting table cloths and had other items available if needed. The two bartenders were attentive to my guests needs and I received many compliments from guests on their service. Clean up was done quickly and the overall cost was extremely reasonable compared to all the work my partner and I were spared,

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!
