Introduction: I pride myself in driving quality, excitement and hospitality to each guest every time. I’ve worked in the food and beverage industry as a bar lead, manager and expert for high-end restaurants and bars across the Bay Area for over 5 years, creating many beverage menus and programs. A strong passion of mine is to create unique, tasty and stunning cocktails, punches and spirit-free drinks so no one is left out. One of my specialities is to educate small groups on the craft like classic drinks and how to create a perfectly balanced cocktail. Also, whiskey and spirit tastings with cheese pairing. Yumm!

Santiago was the perfect bartender. He was super responsive, served up really great cocktails, and even played along during our murder mystery party. I would absolutely hire him again for our next event.

Santiago bartended for our wedding of 115 guests. When we arrived, both he and his assistant were already making drinks for our early guests. It's a good feeling being complimented on your bartender, but I should take no credit of course. Several guests asked for his contact information and raved about how delicious and refreshing the drinks were. Santiago not only offered a vast menu of cocktails for a great price, he also adapted to our unique requests of how drinks would be purchased. At no moment did I ever notice a long line at our bar. Santiago and his assistant were incredibly swift. With Santiago's service, we were just responsible for providing the keg and the liquor. With every inquiry and conversation we had, Santiago made everything easy and graciously affordable. For anyone planning their own wedding, Santiago will be the relief you're looking for in the midst of the mountain of coordinating and planning you do with your other vendors. If you were to take anything away from this review, know that Santiago's service is of exceptional quality, delightedly affordable, and promptly attentive. He's the man, and we recognize his craft.

We hosted a 120 person wedding reception and Santiago (and the second bartender he brought) knocked it out of the park! The drinks were amazing, the line was constantly flowing, the guests were happy and the bar was kept organized the whole event. It was one less thing for us to worry about because he took care of all the details, including a signature drink sign! We can’t thank him enough and will absolutely hire him again!

It was such a pleasure working with Santiago. When I think of a good bartender it's a person with the ability to provide outstanding customer service, using their experience, knowledge and skill. Santiago did just that! Santiago has such positive attitude, and willingness to give his best. All the drinks he made for our guest were delicious. Santiago made sure none of our guest went dry, especially the birthday guy. We will definitely use Santiago again for any event that we need bartending service.

Santiago is truly the best bartender! My husband and I highly recommend him, we had him for our wedding this past weekend and he went above and beyond. He exceeded our expectations, very professional, punctual, and all around amazing! All our guests loved him and his partner Stacey. Will definitely be recommending him to our friends for their future weddings.
