Introduction: With experience within the catering, bar, & restaurant industry, I expect to understand the dynamics of the event and to account for important factors, weather changes, children, professional/social atmospheres, guest safety, etc, which may ease the host(ess)'s concerns. The least I can do is ensure, from the libations end, is that everyone gets to enjoy the festivities with classic and crafted cocktails to remember. This includes being fully vaccinated, yet willing to follow through for everyone's health and safety. Just as significant, I account for themed events to ensure that the occasion will meet as much of your expectations. C'est la vie

Wow, where do I start? Every year I would purchase one piece of furniture to add to the backyard - mostly tents that would not last no more than 2 years… This year I ended up buying an outdoor 3 piece wicker furniture bar set.. Cute! With Father’s Day & Juneteenth holiday coming up, I wanted my adult boys to find someone who knew how to mix drinks and such - so my outdoor 3 piece wicker bar set can be tested out and used! - but they informed me everyone they knew were unavailable.. I finally thought about the website which was my last resort of taking a stab at hiring someone. Three suggestions came up but no one responded right away and I needed to hire for Father’s Day and it was already late Saturday night around midnight, the night right before the event . After finally getting ready to fall asleep on saturday shortly after midnight and checking my phone for messages, I discovered someone from Thumbtack had actually sent me a message! It was not any of the three suggestions but someone else in the bartending arena.. I was so excited and made contact with Arndell’s Crafted Libation, and this all happened after midnight mind you, and he informed me that he was available for my event on the evening of Father’s Day! Yea! The rest was history!! He was so nice & pleasant and so professional, and he was very knowledgeable about his drinks!! This was my very first time using a bartender for I am not a drinker but all of my guests enjoyed him!! They loved his drinks, his service and he was very courteous, friendly, and I admired how he was so willing to make sure everyone was pleased with his drinks and his service! I am definitely going to hire him for my future events and you should too!!!

Arndell was a wonderful addition to our murder mystery dinner party. He walked us through the entire process, gave us a grocer list of what we did and did not need. Brought garnishes, set up a beautiful station and cleaned up everything to be spotless prior to his departure. Arndell was punctual, attentive, diligent, hard working and made sure everyone was happy throughout the evening and never let someone have an empty hand. He brought wine, champagne, straws, ice and made the most thoughtful cocktail menu signs for our guest to review to place around our house. Truly, Arndell went above and beyond our requests and really made the party a success. You should absolutely hire Arndell for your next event, no doubt about it!!!

Arndell was too good to be true! We found him last minute for our baby shower and he was the perfect fit! He was very professional and even brought his own ideas to the table which I really appreciated. The guests loved him as well. Do not hesitate to book!

Arndell was a pleasure to work with and provided excellent service. He brought an amazing variety of wines for the guests to enjoy. He also created a delicious and interesting NA cocktail for guests who don’t drink / minors. There were sometimes gaps in communication for longer times than we expected which resulted in some anxiety on our end in advance. Additionally we had requested 2 bar tenders, but only one was present on the day. With that minor criticism said, guests were very happy with the drinks and he worked quickly and diligently through the cocktail hour line rush. Finally, for the price quoted his service was above and beyond.
