Party Services So Cal was an amazing company to work with for my wedding. They were prompt and kept the drinks flowing all night long. I was never in one place long enough to actually get our bartenders name but anytime she saw my wife near the bar she had a drink poured and ready for her. All of my contact before the event was with David and he was always prompt with his responses and never made me feel like I was asking too many questions. Would definitely recommend for any bride and groom working on a budget!
Matt an Ryan helped host surprise party for family event both gentlemen were very professional polite. Went out of their way to make out party special and for that we thank them. Would recommend hiring these bartenders for your next event
Mia was awesome, see took care of everything. All of the guest raved about her. We have hired bartenders before and they were okay, but they did not compare to Mia! I highly recommend for any type of party.
I hired APC valet for a corporate function/party held at my house in the hills in Orange County. Our driveway can be challenging and the extra parking spots are 0.3 miles away. Steve and Randall showed up to our house this last Saturday dressed with black pants and a white shirt. They had a large cone that said Valet and they had a lock box to hold all of our guests keys. They were friendly, professional and experienced. The dress code was important to me too and they were dressed to par. I felt my guests' cars would be in good hands with these two gentlemen. The evening was a success, my guests said the gentlemen that Valeted them were very polite and professional, everybody seemed happy. I will truly hire them again! This was our first time dealing with Eddie the owner of APC Valet company and AE event staff. He was extremely helpful and friendly and his communication skills are top notch. He says he also has staff and bartenders and all kinds of other event services. I will definitely hire his other staff too in the future. I went with a different company for my bar-tending and staffing needs, since I did not know at the time that Eddie had other staff then Valet services. The other company I hired, my bartender showed up 1 1/2 hr late and did not bring a server as hired. I should have completely gone with Eddie's staff instead. Live and learn and I will do it next time. If you are looking for a reputable company with all the insurance and liability coverage, with professional and experienced staff, then this is a company for you! This is what I learned today. They are a full event staff company as well. They just did the grand re opening of the Peterson museum last week. Josee
Tony was very helpful from the beginning. He gave some good suggestions based on what we wanted to do and have. It took out some of the stress that I have since I don't know what to purchase. The bartenders at the event were very professional and pleasant. They even helped pack up at the end. I highly recommend Tony and his team.
Rob and one of his bartenders helped serve wine to 400 patrons during our fall fundraising event. Not only was he prompt and courteous, he was also quick to offer help if needed. He and the bartender he brought with him were both professional and dressed for the occasion. I found that he went above and beyond, going as far as to alert me when an entire case of wine had gone bad. He disposed of it for us, and had a kind smile for everyone who requested a drink. I would gladly use his services again, and recommend that if anyone is in need of bartending services, they call Rob Neighbors of Shaken Not Stirred first. Thanks so much, Rob!
Andrew from Los Angeles Bartenders did an outstanding job. I would highly recommend him, and definitely use him again. Our guests could not stop talking about how great of a bartender he was.
We hired JaNae for our son's Bar Mitzvah celebration yesterday, and she was amazing! We were hoping to create a laid back, intimate experience in Venice and wanted a bartender who could be a part of that experience while still being efficient. JaNae fit the bill perfectly. Great bar service, and she pitched in with other help (tidying up, etc.) when she saw that we needed it. She is a lovely person, and I would recommend her to anyone who is putting together a similar event!
After finding ourselves without a bartender for our housewarming party less than a week out, we were quite a bit stressed. Lucky for us we got hooked up with Jill in the nick of time! She helped mold our cocktail list to be cost effective and crowd pleasing. Communication was fluid and frequent, she even game is a call the morning of the party to check in and make sure everything was okay and to address any last minute questions. Once at the party Jill really started to become the superstar. I kept in hearing. From the guests how amazing Jill was and how she made delicious drinks. Her demeanor is upbeat but with a calm tone, which showed through while effortlessly making drinks for 60+ guests. There was never a long line and there were no I satisfied customers. Jill also helped clean up which was an amazing help, allowing us to focus on our guests and having a good time. LA is a city of thousands of bartenders and searching for the right one can be a daunting task. Leave your worry behind and give Jill a call! You will not be disappointed!
I had Smoking Gun as my bartenders at my bachelorette party and I can say it’s the best decision I made for the night. Luke was beyond amazing! He came with his own set up and dressed in all black and was very professional. I had a big party with about 30 girls, every one of them still to this day talks about Luke and the vibe he brought to the party. He took the party to a completely different level. His personality went perfect with my girls. We had a signature drink that he helped come up with and the drinks were flowing and everyone was drunk and having a blast. He even interacted with everyone and even stayed late to help me clean up and interact with the guests. I have no idea what I would of done without him! I will book them in the future for anything else that I need! I highly recommend Luke and Smoking Gun Bartending. Thank you again for an unforgettable night!
We hired Audra to bartend our New Year's Eve party and she was one of the best bartenders I have ever hired! She was professional, punctual and made the best drinks. Audra was also very nice and easy to work with. She was able to accommodate all of our guests and made our party so fun! She even helped pick up after dinner. Hands down I would recommended Audra and will use her again for future events! Thanks again Audra!! You were amazing!!
He was very professional and worked great with our guests. I would recommend Frank to anyone, who needs a fantastic bartender!
This was our first experience using people to assist us during a party. Method guided me, was quick to respond, professional which we value. And when I made a special request for wardrobe , they went over and above to blend with our theme. The staff was happy, helpful and efficient. They immediately got the vibe of our party and enhanced the experience for our guest and especially allowed us to enjoy our event for once . Thank you Emily , Samantha, and Winter!
Tend provided my wedding with two incredible bartenders with not as much notice as such professionalism would require! We had so much fun with them and they were high energy all night. I will 100% use this service again for future events. Thank you all for an incredible evening!
Alaina was amazing! I'm hiring her again at the next opportunity.
5 stars are not enough for EV and Geogie! They are very professional cute and made a success from my husband 50th Surprise Birthday Party!I I will recommend them to everyone who wants to hire bartenders! Cecilia
David was the bartender at a Halloween /World Series costume party in my home for about 30 people. We had a full bar, signature drink, beer and wine. He was a great mixologist, friendly with the guests. So easy to communicate with, gave me a list of ingredients to buy for the signature drink. He dressed in a Dodger uniform jersey. All the guests thought he was a friend of ours and never realized he was hired bartender! Too funny, needless to say I will be hiring him again.
We hired Josh and his team for our 200 person wedding and couldn't have been happier with their company! Neither my husband nor I drink (at all) so we needed bartenders that would take the lead. In comes Barspirit to save the day. Originally, I was very unsure about who to hire for our wedding because I didn't have any personal referrals and had interviewed so many companies and everyone promised such great things. Barspirit was the most direct and honest so we went with them. Pros: - The amount of liquor suggested was perfect. - Josh and Peter are super responsive to all my emails and phone calls - Guests had ALL good things to say including: They gave more liquor to guests who could handle it & mixed down drinks for guests who were starting to lose it (I had emphasized I wanted everyone to at least make it through dinner) - They're good looking (super shallow haha but if you're shallow like me then rest assured) - dressed professionally for our wedding, which was important to us because we wanted our wedding to look classy ;) - Got along with everyone! - Able to work in any situation, I realized afterwards that I forgot to buy a few ingredients but no one was the wiser - Came early to set up, stayed after to clean up - They even made a mock-tail bar for us fizzy juice drinkers & kids - They brought along some servers to help everything run smoothly (paid for and agreed about up front, of course!) - Price cannot be beat! Cons: - I don't know of any
JP was phenomenal from start to finish - I would give him 10 stars if I could. He showed up on time (even a little early) to help set up, he brought his own bar tools, was polite and professional to our clients and the guests at our party, and kept his work space immaculate consististently. Not to mention he makes absolutely wonderful drinks! He's creative, friendly, a team player, and truly talented. We worked with him over the course of two days (for two separate events) and could not have been happier. He's a great guy and a solid professional. My entire team loved working with JP and many attendees also commented on how they were impressed by him (and the drinks :) I would 100% recommend working with JP to anyone looking for a trustworthy and excellent bartender!
Thank you! He was very responsive and easy to communicate with. Quick to answer all my questions and was able to work with my budget. Jerremi was very professional and on time.
I entertain often and this group of bartenders are by far the very best we have ever hired. Their drinks were awesome and they were very professional in their attire and presentation. Many of our guests were asking for their business card. I highly recommend Bow Tie Bros.
