    Rob was amazing! He was there on time , set up and ready to take care of the guests. He went out of his way to make sure everyone was taken care of and even helped the catering staff by removing glasses from the table. He was extremely professional and I would HIGHLY recommend him and I definitely plan to hire him again in the future.

    Rob was an amazing bartender- he arrived early, and even picked up last minute ice for us that we were too busy to grab as it was our wedding weekend - the drinks were flowing fast and furious, which was great for our thirsty crowd! :) Rob was professional and went above and beyond, even helping us estimate how much alcohol to buy overall. Thank you Rob for your help - we couldn't have done it without you and would certainly recommend you to folks in the area that are looking for speedy, professional, and high quality service.

    TOP NOTCH! Everyone loved Rob at my party! He managed serving close to 100 people - about 40 more than we thought were coming. He did it with ease, efficiency and professionalism. He made spicy margaritas which were the hit of the party in addition to managing an open, full bar. Rob showed up early, got all set up and even helped us with some outdoor heat lamps, etc. I would hire him again in a heart beat! Thanks Rob for making our party the huge success it was. We'll be in touch for the next one for sure!

    We hired Rob for my parents 35th wedding anniversary party. It was a casual affair with margaritas, festive decorations, a taco cart and 50 of my parents closest friends and family. Rob was professional, detail oriented, sociable, and personable throughout the event. Oh and he makes great drinks! We set aside time to connect prior to the event to draft a plan as well as a shopping list to ensure we had what we needed to guarantee a good time was had by all. He offered to bring ingredients to make Jalepeño Margaritas and those were devoured in the first couple hours! His ability to manage the bar allowed myself and my parents to celebrate with the guests who had come to celebrate with us. That is priceless. We will definitely look to Rob for our next event and have already made referrals to friends of ours for his services. Highly recommended! Thank you Rob!

    I hired Rob for my husband's 40th birthday party at my home. He offered to bring his own bar but I asked him to use our outdoor BBQ/Bar instead to save space. Rob was so accommodating from beginning to end and so professional. He brought lemons from his tree, fresh grapefruit juice from his home and helped me in every way possible to make sure my guests had a fantastic time. His fresh grapefruit cocktail and moscow mules are to die for!!! Trust me, I paid for it the next day.... Thanks Rob and see you at our next party!

    Let me just start by saying that besides being a control freak I also was a bartender for many years. I am so happy that I chose Rob to bartend my husband's 50th birthday party. He showed up an hour early and set up The bar area, which turned out even better than I had imagined. He Truly went above and beyond to make sure my guest we're happy, which allowed me to socialize and tend to other vendors I had coming in and out for the days events. The House we rented in Palm Springs for my husband's birthday was loaded with grapefruit trees. Rob took it upon himself to pick fresh grapefruits And made the most amazing juice, that made for unbelievable cocktails! By mid day, and into the evening, everyone was drinking his grapefruit cocktails he was mixing up. I do quite a bit of entertaining and I'm so happy that I found Rob because he will be bartending on my future events. Plus, I'm sure he gained some new customers throughout the day and evening. Thank you so much Rob! If you want to be able to relax and enjoy your party, and know your guest will be well taken care of.... Then Rob is your guy! Cheers!! ?????

    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!

At the party he did amazing and was helping around the tables and taking drinks and picking up cups. He was very professional, in the middle of the party we ran out of alcohol but it was because a lot more people showed up then what we expected and he let me know ahead of time so that we would get more. Great experience and I'm sure we will hire him again when needed.
