Karoline was great to work with. She was quick to respond, and just a nice person to work with. The even went perfectly, and I thank her very much for her time she put into making it go smoothly.
Had our wedding this past saturday. Ben and his fellow bartender went above and beyond for our wedding!!! we had no complaints, our guest loved them and so did we!! Thank you Ben for your help in making our wedding day so special!!!
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.
Alejandro was very professional and easy to work with the entire time leading up to the party and during. He helped come up with a cocktail menu and all of them were hits at the party. Easy to reach and answered all my questions in a timely manner.
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.
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
Lindsey was a great bartender who provided plenty of creative, delicious cocktails.
Yvonne and her team were fantastic. When she says, "relax, I got this", she means it. I hired At Your Service Bartending for an event I recently held for a non profit organization. The two bartenders that worked at my event were Lowanda and Alana. They were both professional, punctual, friendly, and responsive. At Your Service Bartending is very accommodating too! Yvonne was willing and able to work with my tight budget and she a created a custom package that worked for my event needs.
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
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!
I highly recommend Jennifer to anyone who is looking for an incredibly competent and hard working professional with the expertise and experience to do it all: from bartender, to chef, to party planner and manager. I hired Jennifer to help me with all aspects of hosting Thanksgiving dinner for 20 people, and from the moment she arrived, she hit the ground running and jumped right in. Not only was she able to handle a high volume of work quickly and efficiently (she can hustle!!), she was also able to think on her feet and effectively handle the expected -- and the unexpected (like one of our ovens going out!) -- with ease and a calm, positive disposition. I could count on her to pull off a wonderful event, and I don't know what I would have done without her! If you hire Jennifer to help you with any and all aspects of hosting an event, you won't be disappointed -- she's amazing!!
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!

As a bartender it is important to be transparent in what you are making or pouring for your customer. A good bartender will be able to answer any questions about the cocktail they are making, as they are making it and should be able to make eye contact as to reassure the customer that they are doing their best to make a fine cocktail. I believe knowledge and the ability to enhance or create a pleasurable environment is crucial for an all around great time!
