Introduction: For best response, please email BIGSTARHOSPITALITY@GMAIL My name is Josh Berresford. I am the owner of Big Star Hospitality, a boutique agency, staffing bartenders, servers, hosts/hostesses, coat check persons, etc. for private parties, corporate happy hours, weddings, etc. I started my hospitality business as a one man show in 2015 . I now have expanded and have 80 freelance bartenders and servers helping to make my business. As you can see by my great reviews, I will make sure your party or event is a great one. If you're looking for professional and courteous hospitality look no further. I try the best I can to be very available to my clients to help answer any questions or concerns that they may have relating to their party or event. I will help plan the drinks they would like served or I'm happy to suggest some great classic signature cocktails or not so classic. I will send a grocery list to ensure you get everything you need for the cocktails you choose.. I personally have over 20 years experience in the hospitality business. I really love helping to make people's parties or events a success. I am not afraid to go that extra mile to help my clients and their needs. I love to see my clients and their guests have a great time. I really like working and providing great service to my clients. I really love what we do. Let’s make your party great!

I booked with Josh who was responsive to all of my questions. He was down-to-earth and easy to talk to like a friend. I hired him for my baby shower and I had already went over budget but Josh provided me with different options which I APPRECIATED. He was great! He had another gentleman with him but I didn't catch his name. Both were professional and wore masks throughout the event. You have to book with Star Hospitality. It's like booking a service with a longtime friend. Thank you Josh! You will definitely hear from me again.

Details: 76 - 100 guests • Special occasion • Upbeat / lively • Public venue • Liquor / mixed drinks • Non-alcoholic beverages • Bartender will need to bring the bar • Tip jars allowed • Disposable cups • Ice • Setup / cleanup

FAQs

  • What should the customer know about your pricing (e.g., discounts, fees)?

    Bartending starts at $50/hour and servers/attendants start at $40/hour. Gratuity is not included but always greatly appreciated. We also rent glasses for $1/glass and we have portable bars for rent for $50/flat fee.

  • What is your typical process for working with a new customer?

    Once we establish we are a fit, I will email an inquiry to the client asking for details about needs with bartender or server. I will then send contract and deposit info. 50% deposit is required for all bookings and is not refundable to save the date for the client.

  • What education and/or training do you have that relates to your work?

    I have worked on and off for the past 15 years as bartender and server. I worked at The Beatrice Inn (then owned by Grayden Carter (Editor of Vanity Fair and also owner of The Waverly Inn. I have a very polished, high end serving background. I've waited on many VIP and celebrity guests. But I also can be very casual. It's really up to whatever the client's needs are and how they would like me to perform.
