Dear Scott and Nelson, I want to thank you both for the wonderful service you provided! I thought it was a magical evening due in no small part to your contributions. Many of the guests commented on the great job you did. We especially appreciated the personal touches like the picture of our beloved Bobbie and the drink menu. I felt you arrived as bartenders and left as friends. I appreciate your help and you said you make it special but it far exceeded our expectations. I am in your debt. With my most sincere gratitude. John Don't spend a lot of time looking at other websites, hire Classic Cocktails By Scott, he will make your event very special. He and Nelson not only served drinks but served food and cleared tables as his time allowed, you will not be disappointed.

I had a great experience using Donna. Her team was on time and went above and beyond to ensure there were not any issues. They helped more than most bartenders would and it was highly appreciated. When I have another event they will be my go to bartenders.

Robin and her team, an additional server and a bartender did an outstanding job at my sons wedding. Robin attended to every detail, setting up, serving, cleaning and packaging all of the food and appetizers. The bar tender set up and managed all of the liquor, ice, kegs and clean up. Extremely professional and friendly. I would and will recommend Savor Your Party to anyone needing help for any size event. They are the best!!

Nichole and her team were excellent! They made the bar "POP". During the pre-wedding planning, Nichole was very accommodating and really help us to prepare for the event. I would highly recommend Elix!

They catered my 30th birthday party (with 100 guests) and did an amazing job. They showed up on time, were professional and polite, great food and quick clean up. The bartender I asked for did a fantastic job as well. I have recommended to anyone looking for a caterer, even strangers!

I originally was looking for a bartender, but then Charlene also offered to decorate. She was always super quick to respond to all of my questions too! Charlene and Devon did the decorating and clean up which was a huge help! Devon was an amazing bartender! Many people asked where I hired him from! If you don't want to be tied down with hosting duties at your next event, I definitely recommend using Charlene and Devon!

We hired Tracy to help out with our dad's Disco themed 70th bday party & we were very pleased with her service as bartender, food management and clean-up. She was punctual, timely with our communications, flexible and demonstrated great work ethic. The Best was I asked if she could come dressed in 70s attire and she came in dressed as Cher, with disco ball earrings. All of our guests loved her, she totally was the coolest bartender and even went about and beyond bringling life to the party when she brought out delicious shots to pass around and cheers! We would definitely re-hire her again for our future large celebrations! Thanks for the Awesome memories Tracy!

I hired Mike's Bartender Service for an Anniversary Party over Labor Day Weekend. We hosted 100+ of our nearest and dearest and Mike and his partner (Dave) were fantastic. From mixed cocktails to fun shots, beer and even "Shirley Temples" for the kids; this team was prompt, professional, and a HIT with our crowd. There was never a time that anyone waited for a drink and all I heard was "What great bartenders - where did you get them?" all night. LOVE IT! I will definitely use Mike's Bartender Service again & again!

Hello Cassandra, I want to Thank you so much for helping me out as the bartender for a very demanding party. Your quick response put to me put me somewhat at ease that I at least had someone to work the party but i had not yet seen how you worked so i was not totally sure how this would work out. When you walked in your smile and personality was perfect i had high hopes without seeing you work yet i was optimistic you would be great. I just want to say I know how hard that party was to work it was none stop and you were amazing, even as busy as it was your area was clean organized and the guests loved you and that is all that really matters to us here that that our costumers were taken care of and that is exactly what you did. This whole experience with you and your company was perfect and would love to use you again. Carrie Allabastro Cafe la Cave

Angela and her associate were great! Being the bride, I didn't really get the chance to get to know the two bartenders but my family and friends appreciated their customer service and hard work.

I recently hired Heather to handle a work business party that we were having and she FAR EXCEEDED my expectations. We hired her as a bartender but she went well above and beyond by stepping in to help with the food that we had delivered and became our own little caterer as well. She obviously understands the culinary arts as well. She was polite, warm and extremely pleasant. Easy to talk to and by the end of it, it was as if we had all known her for the longest time. We are a chatty and sometimes a bit crass bunch at my company but she handled it perfectly! We determined before she left, that from here on out she would be the ONLY person we contacted to help us with ANY of our parties!! I for one, am also pleased to have met such an awesome and beautiful soul!! People like her are hard to come by these days! YOU WILL NOT BE DISAPPOINTED!!!

I was uncertain about hiring a bartender, but Tiffany and her team made it extremely pleasant. Not only was it a seamless planning process, but also all of my guests were extremely pleased. I hope I can throw another party soon, because Four Fox will certainly be apart of it again.

We had Cheri bartend our wedding reception of 140 people and she was a rockstar! She has a great attitude and was smiling for 7 hours straight. We received many compliments on her and her “perfect pours”. We can’t wait for our next part and you can bet Cheri will be there.

Hire skilled professionals for absolutely everything.
