RK’s bartended my wedding and I’ve received nothing but compliments! Rick was so helpful and responsive and helped me put together and menu and even allowed me to use my creativity for my personal custom drink. All the drinks were excellent and my guests and my husband and I couldn’t have been happier- great prices, great drinks, and great people! You need this team for your wedding!!!

If you are reading this review. Let me just tell you this, book RK Pourhouse right now. You will not regret it. I do extensive research on everything before I make my final decision and hands-down RK Pourhouse delivered. Drinks were amazing, the set-up was amazing, and the value for what we paid was out of this world. I got several quotes from other bartenders and nobody else came remotely close. You get way more than you pay for. Rick was amazing to work with and very responsive. We booked RK for our wedding of 160 people just 5 days after California re-opened. They worked their butts off. They didn't even get a chance to eat their vendor's meal. That just speaks volumes. They whipped out drinks for 5 hrs straight and that doesn't count the time for set-up or clean-up and they didn't take a break to even eat. I can't praise RK Pourhouse and their team enough.

Details: 176 - 200 guests • Wedding reception • Formal / elegant • Public venue • Beer • Liquor / mixed drinks • Wine • Non-alcoholic beverages • Bartender will need to bring the bar • Tip jars allowed • Setup / cleanup • Ice • Glassware • Coolers

Rick was the BEST! The drinks were fantastic, his set up was perfect and overall he was the hit of the party! We had 60 people, a mix of kids and adults and everyone thought Rick did an amazing job. We can’t thank him enough and can’t wait to have another gathering where we can get him to bartend again!
