Santiago was wonderful to work with! We had him and his team come bartend for a backyard wedding. He helped me put together a menu and let me know what to order and what he would provide. He was great at answering my questions along the way. The day of the event he had a super cute setup and all of our guests raved about how delicious all of the drinks were. Thank you Santiago!

Santiago is hands down the most professional and easy to work with bartender I have ever hired. He was excellent with communication, accommodating our drink choices, coming up with signature drinks, and handling the onslaught of all the folks who wanted drinks quickly. Everyone at our party was saying they wanted to hire him for their next gig.

Santiago was absolutely amazing to work with! Super easy-going, very kind to my guests, and made the most AMAZING drinks ever (the whole 9 yards - ice, mixers, garnishes, all the amazing details that go into a cocktail). Not only did he make awesome drinks, but he also provided ice buckets for beers and hard seltzers and made his bartending station look professional and gorgeous! I'm 100% hiring him again for all my events and parties! Thanks Santiago for making my open bar the hit of the party! My family and friends all enjoyed it!

Hiring Santiago for our holiday party was the BEST decision we made. He's extremely professional and makes beautiful/delicious drinks. All in attendance remarked at what a great bartender we had! Santiago is very pleasant to be around and works hard. He pitched in wherever he saw need during the party. He also helped in sourcing 2 helpers for our party who were also amazing and very professional.
