Introduction: Good Day, My name is Richard Cohen and I am the owner of Clever Cocktails. I am fully vaccinated, now including my booster. I love being behind the bar and providing excellent service. I t makes all the difference why people hire me. I keep my charges simple, $25.00 per hour from arrival to departure. I charge a minimum of $125.00 for up to 4 hours. Then back to the $25.00 per hour as needed. Feel free to contact me. 703 887 2519 I used to be the beverage manager at the Ritz at Tysons for 8 years so I know both the service and the drinks. I can work in the attire of your choice from simple black pants and white shirt, to a tuxedo. You tell me. I am careful with covid, I will wear a mask, I bring hand sanitizer with me and wipe down each bottle I use. I do not let other touch the bottles and extremely careful for your health and mine. I have enjoyed getting back to work and helping people after the last year. Like many in the Hospitality industry, I can use the work. Please see my reviews on the quality of my service. I love dealing with people. I like to listen to people and deliver what they seek but exceed their expectations so they feel like they got more for their money.

I'm glad I found Clever Services to bartend for my sisters wedding. It was a somewhat last minute decision but we're glad we made it because Richard was professional, friendly, knowledgeable and very helpful. He provided great tips and gave us things to think of that we would have never thought of ourselves. I highly recommend him for any event, big or small.
