    Carlos did my daughter's 16th dance party. What?! Total non-alcoholic frozen concoctions. Kids loved it! Very professional. Thank you, Carlos.

    Carlos did a great job for me on 2 events! He did a wedding 2 weeks ago and did an Excellent job - he was very friendly with the guests and outgoing! He assisted where help was needed during the wedding which was outside of his job duties. He just did a Private Party this past weekend and Services were great and my guests raved the whole night about how great he was! I would highly recommend using him again! He was so good that he is now on our Preferred Vendor list with our Wedding & Event Planning Company! I look forward to doing more work in the near future!! Nicole - Legacy Weddings & Occasions, Inc.

    Carlos came to the rescue on short notice for my wife's 40th birthday party. The previously arranged bartender cancelled just 9 hours before the event, but Carlos rearranged his schedule to accomodate my immediate needs. He was professional, courteous, and knowledgeable of his trade, which in turn made me look good in front of my wife, friends, and family. Many of the guests commented on the high quality of service Carlos provided. He will be my "go to" bartender for future parties.

    Carlos was professional and cordial with our guests. He presented himself and by extension our company with a good image. I would hire him again when we need bartending services.

    Carlos was very professional and courteous. He made our event a huge success. Everyone was pleased with his bartending abilities, as well as his interaction with our guests. Carlos was prompt, set up very nicely, as well as cleaned up when he was done. I am sure to use him again whenever the need for his services arise.

    Carlos was an amazing addition to my graduation party! His commitment to the overall success of my party was phenomenal. He guided me through the purchasing (alcohol and condiment) process, he was always readily available for questions or concerns that I had. Carlos will definitely be the bartender for all my future events. He mingled with guests, made specialty drinks and was truly amazing. His personality, skill and talents made all the difference and contributed to a memorable evening. -Carlos you're awesome, see you at the next event!!

    Mr. Carlos Bajana offered a great service to my wedding reception. He was very professional, friendly and corteous to all my guests. Arrived on time, was dressed nice, clean and well groomed; and even stood late to help clean out his area and surroundings. I would definately recomend him to anyone and hire him again for any future event. Thanks and Blesings, Joy

    I just completed graduate school and decided to throw a big party at my house. I decided to hire Carlos so I wouldn't be worried about entertaining everyone and attempting to mix their drinks all night. Carlos was professional and approachable all night - he remembered everyone's drinks, he kept my expenses under the budget, and everyone had a great time. He made the party a success.

Q&A

What education and/or training do you have that relates to your work?
Yes I do. I network with other bartenders through various blogs and forums to share experiences and drink recipes.
Do you have a standard pricing system for your service? If so, please share the details here.
No complicated pricing system. I charge a base fee, gratuity where appropriate (wedding or corporate event), and I bring a tip jar.
How did you get started doing this type of work?
I've bartended in various nightclubs and lounges in both New York City where I am originally from and in Orlando, FL where I currently reside. Additionally, someone is always having a party, get together, or some type of event. Therefore I figured, I like to party, I bartend well, I should get paid for doing what I enjoy.
What types of customers have you worked with?
Parties at homes such as birthday parties, holiday parties, and weddings.
What advice would you give a customer looking to hire a provider in your area of work?
Shop around, get numerous quotes and let the bartender do his or her job. You are paying for his or her expertise so that you as the host can take care of your guests.
What questions should customers think through before talking to professionals about their project?
That my profession uses the art of mixology and requires continuous education to stay ahead of the competition.
