Introduction: Please email BIGSTARHOSPITALITY@GMAIL. for best response. Hello and Welcome to Big Star Hospitality. Sorry we do not supply alcohol, but we would be more than glad to supply you with a cocktail list to choose from and send you a very detailed grocery list so you get everything you need. My name is Josh Berresford. I am the owner of Big Star Hospitality, a boutique staffing company, 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 6 years ago. I now have expanded and have 80 freelance bartenders and servers helping to make my business extra special. 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. Our service stands out because I take great pride in my business. We are very professional. 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. Totally up to the client. I will send a grocery list to ensure you get everything you need that is necessary to make your party a success. Whatever I can do to relieve your stress I will do my best. I personally have over 15 years bartending and serving experience. 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. Love to see my client's guests have a great time also. I really like working and providing great service to my clients. I am very professional but also very personable and have no problem with chatting with guests. I love to know the people are having a good time and I will go the extra mile to make sure that happens. And always with a smile on my face.

Josh and Sebastian were great to work with, it made the night even better. Even when we ran into a slight issue with my building, Josh was able to get everything resolved within 15 minutes. I would absolutely recommend and use again.

I cannot say enough about working with Josh. He was responsive to my every question, he is extremely professional and his drinks were the talk of my party. Josh, you were a hit! Everyone asked me for your information. You guys were amazing, and I can't thank you enough for the fantastic way you handled everything. Thank you for being so interactive with my family and friends. LOVE YOU JOSH!

It's a little annoying that I can only write three things I liked about working with Josh. He was fantastic from start to finish! A great communicator, very organized and helpful in creating a very memorable event for our biggest client. I had numerous compliments and I would absolutely hire Josh again. In fact, several of our guests said they would be interested in hiring him as well. Overall, it was a huge success and I am thankful to have hired such a professional who made my job easy and made me look good.

Great and friendly staff! He hired a pro to help check vaccine cards and temps of arriving guests at the door for our daughters birthday party. I realized I left my thermometer at home and he came prepared with one just in case! He also offered to help with other things like setup and clean up while waiting for guests to arrive. 10/10 would recommend!

  • 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.
