Introduction: I'm a professional cocktail bartender from NYC with 8+ years of experience in high volume, fine dining, and private event work. I pride myself on being incredibly creative, efficient, and personable with every single guest who will be attending your special day! And if you're looking for someone to add a little bit of fun to your event as well, then we're a match made in heaven! Each client will receive a custom and curated cocktail menu themed to the event of choice. See photos for examples. You as the client won't have to lift a finger. We will work together to come up with all of the liquor, mixers, and refreshments needed including cups, napkins etc. I will personally pick up all necessary items and deliver them to the event. For your service, I'm available for any sort of event. Weddings, corporate, or social/private events. My maximum total of guests is 150ppl. I have a second bartender available if needed. To date, I've worked and created experiences for over 20+ weddings and at least 80+ other private events. Some big names I've been hired by include Netflix, YouTube, Maison St. Germain, Coca-Cola, Bella Magazine, and World's 50 Best Cocktail Bars. Please refer to my website to see my entire portfolio! I am licensed in both Oregon and Washington as per OLCC. I am insured for liquor liability up to 250K. I very much look forward to working with you to make your special event worthwhile and if you have ANY questions, please feel free to ask! Yours truly, Yancy

Absolutely amazed with Yancy! Hired him to bartend my birthday party and not only he ended up coming up with custom delicious drinks, but he was also a great entertainer! He knows how to do tricks behind the bar that are very visual and is easy to talk to. Happy with the Bartneder choice and highly recommend! If you need a bartender, Yancy is your guy!!!!!!

Without a doubt, Yancy Violi is certainly one of the most talented bartenders in the Portland metro area. When he approaches the bar, as a cocktail artisan... He somehow, easily, makes each interaction genuine and captivating. Yancy is no stranger to the Classic cocktail techniques that have been passed on from one generation of bartender, To another Can j get an Margarita?!

Absolutely loved working with Yancy. Hired him for my son's wedding and got so much more than just someone serving drinks. Yancy is an actor and entertainer. He made sure all the guests who approached him had a good time while holding a cocktail in hand. :)
