    Roger was the best idea we had for our pool party! He walked around the pool remembered people's order and had them ready for them when they'd come up. He is a serious pro and sets up takes down the bar as well

    Roger is absolutely amazing and will go out of his way to make your guest feel welcome. On one hour notice he showed up ready to go and brought many things with him which we did not even expect. He even helped serving the guest with food and the dessert and cleaned up afterward. You would be crazy if you don't hire him for your event.

    Roger was Awesome! I originally hired him based on his excellent reviews & he was 100% exactly what the reviews stated. He was on time, efficient, organized, personable & perfect for the party. If he had down time at the bar, Roger handed out water to our guests & asked if anyone needed anything else. He stayed later then expected & helped cleaned the bar/kitchen up at the end. After the party was over I am still getting feedback from my guests noting how much they loved the bartender! I highly recommend Roger Perry for your events & I will be using him again for future events.

    I hired Roger for a Happy Hour networking event in Las Vegas. We had 30 guests attend. It was my first time organizing a corporate event. I was so nervous that I literally had nightmares about all the things that could go wrong. Roger helped me every step of the way, from planning and budgeting to execution. He created a drink menu featuring craft cocktails which had similar ingredients, this saved us a significant amount of money and it also gave our party a theme. Roger met with me prior to the event to ensure everything was in place. Roger projected the professional image that was important to our company and interacted well with all our guests. My CEO was so impressed that we are planning to fly him to Denver for a corporate event. If you are considering Roger for your event, don't hesitate!

    Best bartender in Las Vegas, hands down
    Roger was AWESOME! We had a great chat months before the wedding so I knew what supplies were needed, which ones he would bring, when to expect him and then eventually I needed a bar back and he was able to provide that, too. He showed up early, set up fast, took all the stress off our minds and gave an incredible performance. People who ordered drinks and walked away were found by Jordan (sp?) his bar back and all drinks were delivered to the person who ordered them. Conversations were great, Roger is the coolest, and he cleaned up and skedaddled in a timely fashion. I was so impressed with Roger from start to finish and would not hesitate to not only recommend him but book him again for a future event. He was PERFECT!

    Best bartentender we ever had
    FIVE STARS!!!!!! I hired Professional and Reliable Bartending for a private party at my house. We spoke on the phone a few times to confirm the arrangements. Roger was quick to return my calls, and gave me great insight as to what supplies to purchase. The day of the party, Roger arrived early and went straight to work. I was busy with other chores. Before I knew it, Roger had a FULL BAR set up in my backyard. The set up was neat and professional. Throughout the night, Roger kept the drinks coming. He made great suggestions, and remembered everyone's drink of choice. The bar was set up outside, but Roger came inside to check my guests drinks. No one ever had to wave to get his attention. Roger was at your side with a fresh drink before you even realized that you needed one! After the event, Roger was a workhorse. He helped with the entire cleanup, not just the part that involved the bar. He was all over the kitchen, ect making sure that everything was being taken care of. Only when he was assured that all was in order did he leave. Do your guests a favor and book Professional and Realiable Bartending for your event. Anyone can make drinks. Roger brings a work ethic and charming personality that will add a boost to your party.

    Exceptional, from Beginning to End!
    My husband and I had eight weeks to plan two full weddings, occurring in two different states. Understandably, the chaos this caused was a bit of a nightmare. From our very first message, Roger attended to every possible detail, even those we didn't think to approach. We had a very unique reception, which required Roger to be mobile for 80% of the evening. After the festivities began, we discovered our guest count was almost twice than originally expected. Our reception was cramped, our beverage control was a concern with the influx of attendees. Roger went well beyond his duties, accommodating our unexpected difficulties. He not only managed portion control, but, kept a full drink in every guests hands, even the lushes who required more exotic cocktails. Lol My husband and I were even able to send guests home with leftover bottles, a shocking surprise after so many extra guests attending. Roger made sure every single person was happy, even going the extra mile to see that the bride and groom were included. We can't thank this company enough for all of the extra energy and effort that he contributed to our special circumstances. He even extended his hours with us,at the very last minute, without notice. He was very friendly, very professional, from beginning to end. We highly recommend this vendor to all of our family, friends, and fans, especially those who need a bartender for unique events. Great job! Will definitely hire him again.

    Professional, Flexible, and Delightful
    Roger was excellent and truly a delight. His flexibility and good advice on the drinks menu and what to purchase were appreciated. Roger kept things running smoothly and his winning personality engaged our guests, which made for a great wedding reception. My wife and I received so much positive feedback from the guests about Roger, that I think they would all come to our next event just to hang out with him ;-) The next time we have an event, Roger will be there!

    A review can't even do him justice.. I want to give him 673 stars but thumbtack only lets me give 5...
    Two days after the wedding the guests were all still talking about Roger lol. If you need a bartender this is the one you should hire. I hired him based on his amazing reviews so I know he has a bunch of them but I feel the need to add another. I hired him without meeting him and didn't meet him until I walked into the reception venue with my guests. The set up alone looked so amazing and awesome, he had it looking truly professional. He was amazing and fun but professional at the same time. He was AWESOME!! He even drove the last of the guests home and toured them around lol.

    First of all I feel that Roger was truly "Divine intervention". I have no doubt that we were meant to connect. Originally I had hired a friend who is also a professional bartender for my milestone 60th birthday party, August 20, 2016. Due to some conflicts, I had to make quick changes in finding another bartender at the last minute ( 2 wks prior). In researching Thumbtack, I received two replies. I carefully read through all of the reviews from the two bartenders. After reading so many great reviews, I felt very comfortable in choosing Roger. I loved his professionalism on the phone. After meeting him in person I was most confident that I had made the right decision in my selection. I cannot totally describe Roger's skills. But in a nutshell he is the "best in the West" here in Las Vegas. My guest list was exceptionally large & I continued to mention to Roger that if he needed to hire an assistant bartender, I was okay with that. But Roger reassured me that he could handle the crowd, which he did. He provided exceptional & professional service to all of my guest. I could not even pass by him with my empty champagne flute w/o him topping me off. I told Roger he will be my bartender for all of my future events. I also consider him my new friend 😍. For those of you that ar in me of a great bartender. Trust me when I say, you will be in good hands with hiring Roger Perry. Sandy N. - August 20, 2016

    I hired Roger to bartend for my 40th birthday for a small group in my Hotel room and he was nothing short of amazing. Right from the time he sent the quote (unbeatable compared to others) from the time he cleaned up and said goodbye nothing was too much trouble for him. Anything I requested he was able to accommodate, his cocktails were absolutely delicious and he was very friendly with all of my friends. One of them have even requested his contact details so she can book him for another event. If you're thinking of hiring Roger go ahead and do it, you won't be disappointed. Thank you Roger for being part of my 40th birthday and making it a memorable day/night.

    Roger bartended my daughter's reception. He was amazing. He quickly learned what almost everyone was drinking and kept our glasses full. He went way beyond his duties. If anyone at that reception has a need for a bartender they will be using him. They told me so. He also provides wonderful emotional support for moms who are in over their heads.

    My wife and I hired Roger for our wedding in Las Vegas and we couldn't be more pleased with his service! While several other folks responded on Thumbtack, we decided on Roger within an hour of corresponding. From the get go, Roger was incredibly responsive answering our questions as soon as we asked them. We discussed our menu and what quantities of beer, wine, liquor, and ice to buy as well as needing two people based on the guest list. Roger recommended a colleague, Jimmy and the two knocked it out of the park! The day of the event, Roger and Jimmy not only showed up early but they stayed late, AND helped clean up the bar and folded chairs. It was definitely above and beyond and our guests loved their infectious personalities. Their rate was competitive and their competency unmatched. Roger will DEFINITELY be our bartender at the next event we host! Thanks for making our wedding that much more. -Matt and Sunny

    Roger is definitely both a professional and reliable bartender. Roger was quick to answer questions and helped plan the needs of our party. Roger showed up on time and ready to go with all the necessary bar items. Roger was personable with guests and was a very capable bartender. He got the bar organized and did a great job of maintaining everything for it and cleaned up after. Roger is a legit bartender and used proper pours so drinks tasted great. Roger could handle all requests, make suggestions, and adapt to what spirits were provided. He used every spare minute to freshen up the bar area, pick up empty drinks, clean up trash, and keep everything flowing. He made the party a success and eliminated the usual host stresses of worry that everything is covered. Roger handles business. Rogers reviews are all positive for a reason, he takes his job serious and seems to care that the party is a success. He was very good at anticipating refilling drinks and throughout the night I saw him ready with people's drinks as they walked up or even before they realized they needed one. I honestly have zero complaints. I would definitely recommend Roger and would use him again without hesitation. Do yourself a favor and book him. Thanks Roger!

    We engaged Roger to tend bar at a customer appreciation event this week. He was punctual and after he set up the bar area, he offered assistance with our last-minute preparations. During the event, he went the extra mile and proactively approached guests to check on them and provide refills if appropriate. While guests were eating, he cleared plates and helped with keeping tables tidy. After our guests left, he remained and helped with clean up. Roger was personable, professional and provided exceptional service, assisting in any way he could to make our event a success. We will engage him for our future events. Please take this review with a grain of salt ; ) … We don’t want scheduling conflicts when we need to hire Roger for one of our events.

Q&A

What is your typical process for working with a new customer?
1) Briefly discuss the theme of the party, expectations, and any/all questions. 2) Assure the customer they are in excellent hands. 3) Do more than is expected.
What education and/or training do you have that relates to your work?
Training for Intervention ProcedureS (TiPS) Certification Techniques of Alcohol Management (TAM) of Nevada Certification Food Handler Safety Training Card (SNhD) Las Vegas Metropolitan Police Department Non-Gaming Authorization
Do you have a standard pricing system for your service? If so, please share the details here.
Pricing is based on a variety of factors including (but not limited to) number of guests, duration of event, types of drinks served, set-up/clean-up requirements, etc. Cost to the host is reduced if a tip jar is permissible.
How did you get started doing this type of work?
I started serving drinks (non-alcoholic, of course) at street festivals when I was 14 years old. Subsequently, I've been serving/organizing parties since the late 90's.
What types of customers have you worked with?
Past clients have ranged from college students, to corporate executives, to senior citizens and everything in between. Previous bartending experience includes birthday/holiday parties, pool parties, casino, weddings, special events, fairs, festivals, concerts, and more. Venues have included homes, back yards, mansions, event spaces, hotel suites, nightclubs, and more.
Describe a recent project you are fond of. How long did it take?
I helped a client celebrate her 21st birthday during her first visit to Las Vegas. I believe I helped make it a very memorable experience for her.
What advice would you give a customer looking to hire a provider in your area of work?
Bartending is about much more than just mixing and serving drinks. Your guests will remember their experience with the bartender, so you want to choose someone whose personality matches the experience you wish to create.
What questions should customers think through before talking to professionals about their project?
Will this bartender make the drink service something I don't have to think about during the event? Am I confident they can take care of their own needs as well as the guests? Will this be someone my guests will like and find interesting? Will this bartender definitely add value to my event (functionally and aesthetically), subtract from my event or remain neutral? - If ADD, hire him/her! - If NEUTRAL, acceptable if working for free - If SUBTRACT, do not consider
