After reviewing 4-5 Thumbtack applicants to tend bar at our annual holiday party in our home in Tribeca, we hired David based on his outstanding reviews, numerous accolades and countless awards here on Thumbtack, as well as his impressive references tending bar across the tri-state area, especially in New York City.
As he was the consummate professional, we couldn’t be happier with our choice. He emailed suggestions days prior, arrived early the evening of, came smartly-dressed and was extremely well prepared. Example: in addition to bringing a rolling cooler brimming with supplies, David brought a stainless steel briefcase filled with all the tools of the trade at his disposal: shakers, speed pourers, muddlers, jiggers, etc.…he was like the James Bond of bartending. He quickly set up his bar, cut fruit, prepped glassware...and took pride in it all. As the 40-50 guests arrived, David’s skills as mixologist were on display as well: his vast knowledge of cocktails, craft beers and wines…as well as his easy, welcoming manner…made him a huge hit with everyone in our home.
We plan on having David tend bar at all our private and corporate events moving forward, and highly recommend him for any type of gathering big or small…you will not be disappointed.
