I went to a birthday party over the weekend and Party Link Staffing was working. The bartenders were very nice and helpful plus they made the best drinks. I am hiring them for my husband's birthday party next month!

How do we compare Mia to other Bartenders and service personnel we have hired? Mia is like a Mercedes Benz SL600. She's fast, smooth and her personality comes across as beautiful music playing on the stereo. She's as warm as the heated seats and pays attention to detail like everything engineered in this car! Once you invite her in, you don't want her to leave, nor does anyone else. Our point is: you get what you pay for! She is six stars. We will continue to have her back for now on for every event we hold.

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 so great to work with. I can tell he is a very knowledgeable bartender and he had great recommendations. He didn't end up being my bartender the night of the event but he did send Mickaela, one of his other bartenders and he reassured me that she is one of his best and he was right. Mickaela was very professional, she arrived on time, she dressed according to the theme of the party and her drinks were fantastic. All my guests complimented me about how great she was (and my friends are drinkers!). She was very courteous and really pleasant with everyone. She did a great job. I would highly recommend Tony and his bartenders for anyone having an event.

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!

I am so please with the professionalism of Eddy and his team at AE Events for valet service they provided for a private party of 100 people. I was most impressed by Eddy actually driving to the venue to look it over and assess what ours needs would be and the constant contact during coordination. I had never done anything on that scale before and he made me feel so at ease. The valets are real pros - friendly, accommodating and gorgeous to boot! Eddy even fought miserable traffic to come to the venue and make sure everything was going well. I would not hesitate to hire them in the future. Thanks for doing your part to make the night a great success!

By far the best bartender we ever had. From the fist time I spoke with her about the drink menu and shopping list till she made us a departing picture of her signature fresh margaritas she was awesome. Jill's craft cocktails are unbelievable and she even made a few of my own personal drink recipes. As requested my drink was never empty and Jill would find me at the party with a fresh drink and as request they were with a bit less alcohol so I could drink all night and I did. I had many people compliment Jill after the party as one of the best bartenders they ever had as well. She remembered peoples names and drink orders with 80+ guests. Also from the minute she arrived she took control and I did not have to worry about one thing the entire night. Jill even stayed a few additional hours with no complaints. I will definitely be using Jill again for my next party. She actually is so cool that she even took several follow up calls from me trying to get one of her special drink recipes just right (still cannot match hers). All of her drinks were fantastic (and I tasted quite a few varieties). We are even now talking about having her work some of our small parties just so I don't have to spend the whole night making drinks for our friends.

Great experience all around! I looked at a few bartenders for our wedding of ~150 ppl and although Open Bar wasn't the least expensive, we still went with them bc Brooke's communication was so on point. If anyone was ever slow to reply it was us, never her. She worked within the constraint of our venue (a church) to only serve wine and champagne and she came up with a great menu of mixed drinks that worked out really well and gave our guests lots of options. She worked with us to come up with a shopping list which was helpful too since we don't know anything about drinks. She was punctual, professional, and we had no complaints about the drinks or service. We used two bartenders and they were able to not only pour champagne for our guests but also tend the bar without a hitch. Would highly recommend!!

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!!

I will use Method Event Productions for future events in a heartbeat. They were punctual (early, actually, which was even better) and complete team players who were willing to help with serving food, bussing tables, and helping clean up after the event. Thanks to them, our event ran smoothly and beautifully!

Where do i even start with Rodger and his team. They were just amazing. They were on time food was served on time maybe even sooner then we had asked. And they were absolutely amazing. We had about 200 people at the wedding and seriously everyone that saw me (the bride) and my husband said the food was just amazing and seriously everyone went back for 2nds. We also ended up doing our bartenders with his company and at one point we ran out of coke for our drinks and Rodger left to go get more drinks for us. Omg now that is excellent above and beyond customer service...i cant thank him and his team for making our wedding the most amazing wedding. We couldnt have asked for more. I would recommend him over and over for what he has done. Rodger, dennis and i are so thankful for you and your team. We love you guys

Barspirit's bartenders were fabulous! We found Barspirit on Yelp with fantastic reviews so we contacted them and got a response within minutes (while still contacting others who took much longer). So we decided to move forward after getting a quote and everything was really pleasant. The contact with Joshua, the owner, and Peter, the manager, before our wedding was very straightforward and they explained their process in detail all the time so we knew exactly where we were standing. They helped us create a really neat bar menu with some twists on classic drinks and they sent us a copy of their insurance for our venue. Overall, the booking procedure was very straightforward and transparent. On the day of the wedding, as you can expect, it was very busy so we didn't have much time to think about anything. We didn't even hear the bartenders coming in or setting up. They were just there all of a sudden, ready to go, which I thought was great! They checked in with our coordinator to make sure everything is in place and started serving right away (because some people decided to show up early). The drinks were delicious and the bartenders were fantastic! I'm glad I booked Barspirit because you never know what you will get, otherwise. With that being said, I am happy to write this review so YOU can make the right decision!

David was great. Here are more details on how he handled everything. 1) He provided a list of items to be purchased for the event. 2) Provided his suggestions in finalizing the cocktail list. 3) very responsive on messaging. 4) He was polite with everyone. 5) Professional bartender. 6) helped clean up small plates and trash on the tables, which normally no one does. 7) stayed/extended as long as i requested. 8) Very economically priced.

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!

My husband and I had eight weeks to plan two full weddings, occurring in two different states. Understandably, the chaos this caused was a bit of a nightmare. From our very first message, Roger attended to every possible detail, even those we didn't think to approach. We had a very unique reception, which required Roger to be mobile for 80% of the evening. After the festivities began, we discovered our guest count was almost twice than originally expected. Our reception was cramped, our beverage control was a concern with the influx of attendees. Roger went well beyond his duties, accommodating our unexpected difficulties. He not only managed portion control, but, kept a full drink in every guests hands, even the lushes who required more exotic cocktails. Lol My husband and I were even able to send guests home with leftover bottles, a shocking surprise after so many extra guests attending. Roger made sure every single person was happy, even going the extra mile to see that the bride and groom were included. We can't thank this company enough for all of the extra energy and effort that he contributed to our special circumstances. He even extended his hours with us,at the very last minute, without notice. He was very friendly, very professional, from beginning to end. We highly recommend this vendor to all of our family, friends, and fans, especially those who need a bartender for unique events. Great job! Will definitely hire him again.

Jerremi and his team were fantastic! They were the kind of team that you didn't notice much because they worked so seamlessly during the event. Before the event, Jerremi was always punctual in replying to emails, always available for a phone call, and willing to help in any way he could. He even threw in complimentary bitters for our signature cocktail. The additional servers/helpers we hired to assist with appetizers and dessert were so sweet and were even excited for us getting married! I would 100% recommend these professionals for any event, big or small.

Hire skilled professionals for absolutely everything.
