I hired Drew to bartend in our home for my husband's 50th birthday party. From the first contact, he was very helpful, explaining how he works, offering suggestions for drinks and keeping in contact as our plans formulated. He was quick to reply and offered up time to talk on the phone to work out the details. He was flexible with our desire to have a house cocktail and a "punch" and helped with figuring out quantities of alcohol and types needed to set a full bar for a party of approx. 90 guests. He was able to provide two additional staff to work the party, serving guests, passing appetizers, replenishing hors d'oeuvres/dessert table, bussing/cleaning, etc. Drew is very personable and pours a mean Old Fashioned (along with any other drink according to many of our guests who praised his skill at the bar!) He worked efficiently and kept the drinks flowing throughout the evening. He worked well with his staff to assure we didn't have to worry about a thing throughout the evening, allowing us to enjoy the party and attend to our guests. They were great at the end of the night breaking things down cleaning up. We will call on him again when the need arises and I can highly recommend hiring Drew if you are needing a skilled, personable bartender.

Where do we begin with Beth? She is absolutely amazing. During our wedding planning process, she was ALWAYS accessible and super responsive. She is an absolute go-getter and coordinated with the venue on all logistics. We didn’t have a wedding planner for our wedding and had gotten used to following up with other vendors repeatedly to finalize details (if you’re planning a wedding, you totally know what I mean), but if Beth said she’d follow up by Thursday, she did—which is such a small detail, but had such a big impact with us. As we started working with her, we realized that she would also be the perfect day of coordinator. We met with her a week before our wedding to download her with all of the details and from there, she totally rocked it. From managing her bartending staff, to making sure centerpieces were set, and people were in the right place, she made sure our day went smoothly. Beth went above and beyond what we could ever have imagined. Our catering staff showed up 20 minutes before we were supposed to eat dinner, so Beth helped plate and serve food—we didn’t even notice the chaos. Aside from being the most organized, go-getter we know, she is also just an awesome person. We seriously can’t say enough good things about her. Going with Fusion Events was one of the best decisions we made about our wedding. We can honestly say without Beth and Fusion Events, our day would have gone very differently. She is a person who just does what she sees needs to be done. While her business is bartending, we highly recommend her not only for that, but day of coordination or any other logistical event planning as well. For what our opinion is worth, we HIGHLY recommend Fusion Events.

We used Minnesota Bartending Services for our wedding at a local MN venue and we were very pleased with our experience! The bartenders were professional, efficient and went beyond our expectations. We were able to bring our own alcohol to our venue, and it was so great having professional bartenders to serve it. We are very grateful and are so happy that we choose them for our event!

Nate catered a surprise 60th birthday party we threw for my mom and it could not have been better. The food was all delicious and the service was impeccable. It was a huge benefit knowing we had someone who really knew what they were doing so we could enjoy the party. He came out to the event space, was early, set everything up and took care of all the food so well, and was so friendly and professional with all the guests. 10/10 would definitely use his services again.

Paul was very professional, clearly knew how to set up the bar area, was very welcoming to guests, and cleaned up not only the bar area but stayed to help clean up the kitchen. He was a very positive addition to those who helped with the party. I would definitely hire him again!
