The bartender was very professional, offer great customer service and welling to go the extra mile. I had a few wait staff show up and the bartender just jump in a assist without me having to ask. She was also very courteous and responsive to the guest. A great peoples person.Nov 12, 2019Verified

So polite & patient, even under pressure! We met Charli when she bartended a 50th bday that could’ve been a disaster without her. Our friend’s daughter hosted the party (she’s a real piece of work) & was running behind & frustrated, so she snapped on the bartender all night, but Charlii just kept serving and smiling and kept the party going. She brought in a whole bar, sent out for more liquor when they ran low, she even named a special drink “The Dorian”. The Traveling Tender is professional, prompt & good pricing, and we’ve already booked them for 2 more occasions after seeing how well she handles the worst of situations & really takes good care of the guests.Aug 10, 2019Verified

What can I say... Charli was amazing! When considering a bar tender for my photography event (many were considered) I wanted someone who not only knew what they were doing behind the bar, but also someone who was personable with the guest attending the event. After the event I kept hearing how great of a job she did with managing the service while creating some great drinks, Will definitely hire The Traveling tender for my next event!Nov 21, 2020Verified

Charli is A1, she will be my first choice for all future events where her services are needed. The specialty drinks were superb and she went the extra mile by taking pics and videos for my event.Sep 1, 2020Verified
