Cocktails Affairs LLC were bartenders for my wedding in October. We sorted out a schedule and she was able to tell me how much of stuff to get and guided me. I hired 3 bartenders and 2 servers and it was amazing. The wait time for the bar was very short and everyone was able to have a drink in their hand always. The servers made sure everything was clean and drinks were being served always. I appreciate the service and would recommend for a big event.

Jessica and her team were beyond amazing! I can't express enough gratitude for the amount of help they provided. They went right into action upon arriving despite the fact that the venue we had paid for was not set up for the time of our party, setting us back quite a bit. Every single one of them was attentive, quick, easy going and self-initiated. While I was disappointed in the venue I selected, Jessica's service helped make the event go smoothly and gave me hope that the party will continue to progress positively with their help. The drinks were great, I didn't need to worry about the team at all, they were on top of things. She is also responsive on the weeks prior to the event, and just overall professional and great. Don't hesitate to work with Jess, I didn't have to second guess anything with her. She is straight forward, and I would totally book her again if we ever host an event like this. We had bartenders and servers that we sought with her service. Given that this was my dads 70th birthday party and a lot of older Spanish speaking folks were going to be present, we requested if she had at least a few that were bilingual so that it would allow the older folks to feel comfortable communicating with them. Thank you Jess for helping us make the party eventful. I appreciate you!

Jess was amazing to work with and she communicated very well. She helped us create our drink menu and created a template as well. I honestly forgot all about creating template and I’m happy she brought it with her. It made it easier for the guests to choose there cocktails. On our wedding day the heatwave we had that day was unbearable and the drinks were refreshing and well needed after a long day. She made plenty off the menu drinks and also catered to under age young adults as well. Jess and her partner was amazing and I will definitely continue to use her bartending services in the future ❣️
