I spent a while looking for bartenders for my wedding and was surprised how few certified there were around where I live. the couple of other options I found were prohibitively expensive or would not make the trip to my venue. drink it down I feel offered great value and were easy to work with. Christopher the owner is a nice chap and was quick to respond and give ideas on some of the logistical questions I had. overall a very pleasant experience.Nov 10, 2018Verified
I hired 3 bartenders for my wedding reception and they were incredible!! They were in constant contact with me, they showed up on time, they made and got drinks so fast, were all very sweet and personable, and so many of my guests raved about them!! Thank you for making my wedding even better with your amazing service and skills!!Oct 3, 2018Verified
The bartenders sent by Christopher were wonderful. They took care of everything and I never had to worry once about the bar.Jul 7, 2017Verified
I highly recommend Chris at Drink it Down Bartending! We had our weekend wedding at South Mountain YMCA in PA in April 2017. This was a bit of a drive for the bartenders but they happily let us hire them :) We had to hire a licensed bartender with alcohol liability insurance for our venue - Drink It Down happily provided this insurance for a small fee. The one catch with our wedding was that we wouldn’t be able to meet most of our vendors in advance of the event because my now husband and I live across the country in Reno, NV. This meant that we had to put full faith in our vendors (and some very helpful family members in PA) that their services would be perfect for our big day after just a few phone calls. From the beginning I had the sense that Chris would be professional and would make sure that he provided all the supplies needed for a full bar setup, including the bar itself, soft drinks, straws, mixers, and garnishes. We asked for glassware as well, which he provided at a very reasonable price. Chris was very easy to keep in touch with via email and was pleasant during all our interactions, including some last-minute requests and questions we had. We purchased the alcohol for the event (kegs of beer, wine, rum) and Chris helped us figure out exactly how much to buy (I’d say he was dead-on with his calculations, too!). Chris and his co-bartender arrived right on time for setup - I think a few of my friends even grabbed drinks before our ceremony, an hour before our official “start time” for the bar :P. During the reception there was never a line at the bar and our guests had a great time! Drink it Down makes a dang good double mojito ;)Apr 28, 2017Verified

- What should the customer know about your pricing (e.g., discounts, fees)?We bring both a level of professionalism and additional services that others don't offer. We offer glassware, plasticware, bar sets, and come with insurance. Our services have been rated over and over as top notch and we make sure to take care of our clients!
- What is your typical process for working with a new customer?Typically a customer who is looking for a bartender wants to know costs of everything. The best way to establish costs for me to know the details of the event so I can determine how many bartenders are required, how long they are required and how many guests they will be serving and what we need to bring with us. A lot of people who are looking for bartenders don't realize that in PA and NY liquor liability insurance is required and if they get a bartender who doesn't have that, it can put both them and that bartender in alot of jeopardy.
- What education and/or training do you have that relates to your work?Every bartender has worked as a bartender for multiple years at various restaurants and picked up most the tricks of the trade by this point. We are all TIPS certified as well as fast, efficient and friendly!
