Personal Sommelier had the right bartender for our special event. Brian was the best bartender I’ve met. Very professional, on time, and knowledgeable about any drinks you would want. He consulted with us beforehand regarding special drinks for our wedding day and he definitely delivered. Not only did our guest love the drinks but they highly enjoyed Brian’s service and entertaining personality. He is very knowledgeable but also easy going. Plus, he was also cleaning up emptied drink cups which was very appreciated. Brian made our day special and I definitely give my highest recommendation!

Details: Wedding • Fewer than 50 guests • 2-4 • Pass hors d'oeuvres / serve food • Operate buffet

Lauren was an absolute gem and star of the party. We had about 65 people over for our annual backyard “Shindig” and she was amazing to work with start to finish. She made amazing recommendations for cocktails - the ranch water and rum or whiskey old fashioned were a huge hit. She recommended great spirits and was available during odd hours while I was shopping to ask questions. She was so friendly and pleasant to work with and people are still talking about both her and her drinks. She even let one of our little guests help with the kiddie cocktails :) Absolutely hope she can come back next year!

Details: 26 - 50 guests • Special occasion • Low key / casual • Private residence • Liquor / mixed drinks • Wine • Venue will already have a bar • Tip jars allowed

The guys were the best and were so thoughtful, professional and just treated the event like it was their own and made it perfection!!!
