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.
Yvonne and her bartenders (we had 3 and one barback at our wedding) were awesome!!! Yvonne had several other events on that day but not to worry as her crew were amazing as well. As soon as I spoke with her about the event and she gave us her suggestions, her experience and knowledge showed and we immediately decided to hire At Your Service. Would highly recommend!!
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.
I cannot say enough good things about Alejandro. I contacted him 5 days before the event, and he did everything I asked. He was quick to respond, understood what my client needed, and was just absolutely the best! I would highly recommended him for bartending services!
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!
Awesome bartender! The drinks were amazing and the guests loved him.
We received wonderful feedback from event participants about the bartending sevices - "bartenders were wonderful," "bartenders were great." Jerremi was very accommodating and professional during event planning stage. Would highly recommend!
Really nice service!!! Very professional, she knows how to treat people .... I've been working with different kinds of bartenders and this one its way better then the others. The drinks were well done. I highly recommend this service! !!
Alisa was hired to cater our wedding of 35 guests at a private residence. She went above and beyond call of duty with cocktails, appetizers, the dinner, and setting up, breaking down the event. She arrived early to set up for both the ceremony and the dinner, and provided the cocktails and beer which received reave reviews from the guests. For the appetizers, she provided polenta bites and bruschetta in keeping with our Italian menu and both were really tasty. The dinner menu consisted of a caesar salad with grilled salmon, tomato bisque, and a cappellacci di zucca; all were truly delicious. She cleaned up the same night, making it easy for us to enjoy the kitchen the next morning for breakfast. If I were to host another event, I would hire Alisa in a heartbeat.
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!
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.
We used Able Bartenders at one of our luxury communities and their staff was very friendly. Our residents were very happy with the service and we were please as well. They tended to the needs of the residents and made sure the residents always had a drink. Thank you, your service was greatly appreciated!
Kristine and Jenn were fantastic bartenders! Their service was great and Kristine was very responsive when planning out the event details. Many guests even commented on how great they were! I highly recommend Bar on the Vine and will definitely hire again!
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.
Ben Jammin was wonderful - he brought a great energy, understood our theme, and was a hit throughout the party. And, he made wonderful cocktails! Very professional.
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.
Vic is the BEST Bartender that I have experienced so far. His drinks are very refreshing as he uses all fresh organic ingredients and fruits. I was one the guest at last weekend's Birthday party and I can say that everyone got fan of all his cocktail drinks. I have already Pre-booked him for my Birthday in July. :) Looking forward to it and I am very excited that I found him. I will highly recommend his service to all my friends and family before he gets booked for future dates. Ashley
I have tested many services in the area and usually we have our set bartenders. They weren't available for my wife's birthday party, so I contacted Josh and his team. They are responsive, cheaper than our old bartenders, on time, professional, and extremely courteous. I think my wife and I have found ourselves a new favorite bartender and we will definitely be booking them for our future happenings.
Tom is Amazing... I have worked with a whole lot of bartenders and none of them even come close. With out a doubt I will hire Tom again and plan to work with him very soon. He is very down to earth and professional at the same time which is a very rare quality... Trust me when I say Hire this man 😀😀😀😀 ~Chef AJH
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!
