Rachel and Tori were absolutely amazing for our recent party. I would absolutely recomend Rachel for any event you're planning. From start to finish, Rachel was very fast to respond to my questions, both in app and text. Phone calls to plan were offered, but not needed, everyhing was planned via text. Rachel arrived early as planned for the party and had all necessary tools/equipment/tables, etc for the night. From a previous discussion about signature cocktails for the night, Rachel simply sent over a shopping list - everything was purchased and waiting. Rachel and team setup the bar, tables, prepared the fruit for the cocktails, made simple syrup and was ready to go berfore the first guest arrived. We had 55+ guests at the party, Rachel and Tori handeled with ease. Everyone had fresh drinks without a wait and the bar area quickly became one of the hangout spots for the night. I was actually amazed at how clean Rachel and Tori kept the bar area. Empty cans/bottles immediatly removed from sight, spills wiped up and glassware taken care of. By the end of the party, Rachel and Tori had all their equipment cleaned and packed away. Honlestly, it looked like there had not been a bar there at all. All leftover liquor / mixers from the party were NEATLY packed back in their boxes and set out of the way. Stop looking for a bartender for your event, talk to Rachel. She will take care of everything.

Details: 51 - 75 guests • Birthday party • Low key / casual • Private residence • Beer • Liquor / mixed drinks • Wine • Bartender will need to bring the bar • Tip jars allowed • Setup / cleanup

Rachel far exceeded my expectations. We communicated easily and quickly. She helped me pick the drinks menu and was even flexible with me adding one more last minute. She was on time, professional and kind to my friends. She actually fit right in. Her table set up was also very classy, clean, and she had all the tools needed to serve us what we requested. Super impressed with Rachel and will definitely hire her again next time I need a bartender. You won’t regret hiring her!! She’s amazing!!

Details: 11 - 25 guests • Holiday party • Upbeat / lively • Private residence • Beer • Liquor / mixed drinks • Wine • Bartender will need to bring the bar • Tip jars not allowed

We hired Rachel for a company holiday party, and would definitely hire her again! She was incredibly professional and worked with us to create a great experience. She was also super responsive and I was never worried about being ghosted. She was a fantastic communicator and her expertise shone through. Everyone loved her drinks and it was so easy to work with her. If you're looking for a bartender that not only knows what they're doing but is passionate about quality service, I highly recommend Rachel.
