After countless hours of searching for a company that does more than just bartending, I stumbled upon Top Shelf Events. We needed wait staff, bar staff, and cleanup crew for our wedding. Top Shelfs staff was better than I could have expected. Lauren planned the timeline perfectly from buffet setup, cocktail hour, folding up portable tables and more. When using more than 1 service she even included a coordinator(which was her) for free. Her staff did everything from keeping dirty plates off the tables and making sure water and tea goblets were full during dinner, the 3 waiters we had, did a PHENOMENAL job. When dinner was done we had to move ALL the tables out of the way to make room for the dance floor, we didn't have much luck with the weather and had to go to plan B, everything inside! They had everything organized and broken down within 20 minutes with time to spare. We also had 2 bartenders, although it was a simple bar they kept drinks full and flowing and didn't let anyone make a fool of themselves, or of us! By the end of night we had to be out of our venue by 11pm, the bar was shut down and organized and all the remaining wine and beer was boxed and ready to go. They even loaded it into my car at the end of the night. I got so many compliments on how smoothly everything ran and am so thankful I had Lauren to help me plan on the last minute details.

If you care to have an experienced and on point person to head your event then you would be remiss if you hired anyone beyond Kat Abbott. In my 20 years of experience in the Austin night life I've not encountered any professional bartenders equally adept at their given skill set than Kat. There's been the die hard dedication to her pub and all of her fellow employees, management and above all her clientele in addition to her fabulous bar side manner that keeps me and and a large portion of my friends coming back for more than a decade that should convince anyone of her gift and dedication to this way of life. I wholeheartedly vouch for her in every way and I trust that any business in search of quality people would try and attract Kat to their company. You'd be most fortunate to add her to your plans if you're interested in having things run smoothly, efficiently and happily. .

Cassandra did an incredible job bartending for my wedding! We had 150 guests at an indoor/outdoor venue and we served 2 wine selections as well as margaritas, 3 beer selections, water, and lemonade. She provided us with 2 bartenders, and flawless service. The event went off without a hitch. Her professionalism never wavered, and she was sure that I didn't have to worry about anything the night of my wedding. She was attentive and on the ball the entire time! I have nothing negative to say, she was always on time to appointments and flexible to accommodate our needs! Excellent, excellent service! I would absolutely hire her again! Thank you Cassandra!!!

I hired Bar Divas of Austin to work my 200 person...open bar wedding and could not have been more satisfied. I had them not only supply the hourly bartenders but had them handle the entire bar...Ice, mixers, garnishments etc. At no time did I have to concern myself with the bar. The ladies ( Stephanie and Abby) great bartenders and my guests loved their fun out going personalities!! Not only would I recommend Bar Divas of Austin but I look forward to working with them again and again. I would DEFINITELY recommend to my friends and family!

Our company was hosting a back to school meet up for over 100 Austin teachers. The event was held at Vulka and we needed an awesome bartender. I found that and so much more with Nicholas from The MiniBar. There were quite a few respondents to our request on Thumbtack. We decided on The Minibar for several reasons. The main reason was because in his initial response to our request, it was clear that he thoroughly read the details within our event details and he did not just respond back aimlessly. He was also very detailed and prompt when providing answers to my various questions about his experience and services. The day of the event got a little busy and he extended himself and stopped to bring a few extra bags of ice to the venue. He was early, immediately got to work, worked fast to get all set up, and then changed into his professional attire in minutes. The line moved quickly during the event and he was patient with each individual. The event was a huge success and Nicholas cleaned up the bar area as clean as when he arrived. He even helped us in other areas of he venue. He has a great personality, is professional, and engaging. You will NOT be disappointed when hiring him.

Finding good bartenders with reasonable prices for my wedding seemed impossible. But, DE Bar Guys rose to the challenge, and boy did they deliver. Their pricing was exceptional, and so was the service. Dave was very responsive and friendly, a combination I found nowhere else! He was also very flexible in some changes I wanted to make after the initial quote, and accommodated my desire to have the bartenders bus tables and help with setup and take down of the event. On my wedding day, the bartenders showed up on time with all agreed upon items, looked professional, and were two of the sweetest ladies ever. And on top of all that, they were great bartenders. There were about 90 people, and there was never a line, and delivered on exactly the drinks we asked them to make. I would highly recommend DE Bar Guys for any event where you need great service and reliability.

We hired Amanda for a cocktail party at our house with 20-30 guests. Amanda was a huge help from the beginning. She provided me with a list of everything I would need for a great party. She also came to the table with some ideas for a signature cocktail and did all the prep for a rosemary syrup that we needed before coming to our house. From the moment she arrived, Amanda was a pro, setting up the bar so that guests could easily choose a drink and see what was available. The signature cocktail was a HUGE hit (Note: if you do this, buy plenty of booze to ensure demand is met). Amanda was engaging and was attentive throughout the night - I received several compliments and 2 days later, one of our guests reached out to get her contact info to hire her. Best of all she helped clean and tidy before she left. I'm already planning on hiring her for next year.

Amber is a delightful addition to any event! Her prompt response, helpful drink menu suggestions and shopping list were life savers. I booked her 3 days before an event and she jumped through hoops to make it easy for me. When my cleaning crew cancelled last minute, she volunteered to stay and help, too. From the minute she arrived, she just jumped in and helped with whatever was needed. She was friendly, professional, knowledgeable and a joy to work with! Amber Poe is the pro you want to know!
