Introduction: We are a Luxury Bartending Service. We bring the experience of being served in a real bar environment by a professional and skilled bartender to every event. Mobile Bar services and rental start at $180/hr with a 3hr minimum. Satellite Bar setup starting at $125/hr with a 3hr minimum. The Satellite Bar is only available from November - April only. Serious injuries only, please. When planning your event, I will assist you every step of the way with the bar planning aspect. Let me use my expertise to help you figure out what spirits you’d like to feature and how many bottles of champagne you’ll need for your wedding toast. I care about the details of every event I do and consider you family from the second you book. If you’re looking for a bartender to just show up, that’s not what we do and sadly, this isn’t the right company for you. How does it work? Per state laws, you provide the alcohol and let me handle the rest. With our Beverage Planning Service, I will advise you on drinking trends and quantities to ensure you do not overbuy and every guest is satisfied. This service comes with every booking. Specialty Cocktails? I’ve got you covered. Though I recommend featuring 2-6, I will create as many as you’d like and will print a Signature Drink Menu. I can even create a kiddie mock-tail menu. I love making drinks so there is never an up charge for this. It’s kinda what I do. By the way, Hi! I’m Christine. I’m the owner, operator and Bartending professional you will be dealing with. You can text or call me at any time of day! I am fully insured with both liquor and general liability. In addition to having a decade of bartending experience, I’m TIPS and RAMP certified. Cheers!

Christine is the best! We had so much fun chatting and of course drinking her delicious cocktails. From the moment we booked her, she was always on top of things with great communication and extremely personable. I would highly recommend her to anyone looking for a bartender and a fun experience! We would certainly book her again in a heartbeat. Thank you again, Christine for making our party an extra special one! Best of luck to you in all that you do. ❤

Christine was amazing to work with! She communicated throughout the process, answered questions and I never doubted I was in good hands for our wedding day. She made the cutest personalization for our cocktails that include pictures of our dogs and added accents of paw print straws to match the theme. She was professional, provided good service and went above and beyond! Happy Traveler was the perfect touch to our special day!

This was the best decision we made for our Friendsgiving. She was on time and brought not just her bar, but Decore to go with it . I’m a sucker for aesthetics and she hit every mark. Her customer service was on point, she knew how to make everyone feel comfortable. She became one of us that night. Hire her! Totally worth EVERY PENNY!

FAQs

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

    My prices are fair and competitive. I will break everything down for you.

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

    I try to hop on a call but I know that’s not always realistic for everyone’s lifestyle. So, texting is fully welcomed as well! I will start communication from the second I’m booked to ensure your event is amazing. After getting your event’s theme and drink preferences, I’ll send over a list of 30-50 specialty cocktails to get the ball rolling so that I can start planning your shopping checklist. My brain is in “go mode” once your date is in my calendar and you can “bother” me at any time.

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

    I specialize in private events such as weddings, birthday parties, corporate events...the list goes on. I am TIPS and RAMP certified and thrive under pressure!
