We definitely made the right decision in working with Bartender608 Intoxicologists Cocktail Caterers LLC for our wedding. China Moon and her team were an absolute pleasure to work with. They were awesome! We were able to buy all of our alcohol ourselves with China Moon's advice and she and her team brought all of their mixes and fixes to make every cocktail/drink our guests asked for. China Moon helped create signature cocktails for us, too, and our guests are still raving about how great these were. The bartenders' professionalism and good attitudes were stellar. Exactly what we wanted for our wedding. Thank you so much! 100% recommend working with these guys!Mar 25, 2018Bartender608 Intoxicologists Cocktail Caterers LLC's reply

If you need a bar service for your wedding or any kind of event, Bartender 608 will deliver what they promise and SO much more. We hired them for a Gala as opposed to a wedding, but I thought it would be important for brides and others to hear how amazing these people are. First, I filled out info for a standard quote, and in return got a perfectly detailed contract of what B-608 could offer based on our request. Everything had been considered and offered in a way that showed me that they are professional and know their stuff. Closer to the date, I conversed with ChinaMoon about what alcohol we'd need to purchase based on the crowd and her numbers were pretty accurate by the end of the Gala night. A few days before the Gala, ChinaMoon stopped by the venue to make sure she knew what was available to them and what they needed to bring, and the day of the Gala, she and her team swooped in dressed in crisp, dark uniforms and were set up in no time. The bar area was beautiful and organized, the staff impeccably clean and well-dressed, and you wouldn't believe how fluidly they made all those drinks! The drinks were well mixed and - something I didn't expect - the skewers were topped with a pretty jewel-bead each! At the end of the night, they also did something else I didn't expect. These friendly bartenders busied themselves with helping clean up plates and other items around the venue when the bar died down. I expected they would simply have down time if it was slower at points, but no, they worked above and beyond, tirelessly, and all of them were so kind and sweet to our guests. Everyone loved the service and were impressed with all they did. Thank you ChinaMoon and thank you Team!Nov 21, 2018Bartender608 Intoxicologists Cocktail Caterers LLC's reply
Greetings Melissa! Thank you so much for your kind words on our Bar Services. We sincerely appreciate you taking the time out to share your well-detailed experience on my small business—and I agree, our team of Intoxicologists are truly amazing! We count ourselves lucky for guests like you. We look forward to working with you again in the near future! Thanks again! ~China Moon C.
ChinaMoon was amazing, friendly, and down to earth! We used Bartender 608 for our Grand Opening party and right from the first meeting I could tell this would be a perfect fit. She was extremely flexible (I got a last minute call from my boss letting me know that we had made changes to our drink menu and ChinaMoon was able to roll with it and help us out) , super easy to get a hold of and the service from planning right down to pour service was phenomenal. She made sure we had everything we needed and I loved that she offered to plan out our beverages with us, not just expect us to figure it out. She was very hands on and again SUPER FRIENDLY. I absolutely recommend Bartender 608, they will help make your event great!Oct 13, 2018
China's attention to detail and execution of her cocktails go hand in hand. Her cocktails not only look scrumptious they are! The kind of drink that makes you close your eyes and shake your head...amazing!Sep 23, 2014Bartender608 Intoxicologists Cocktail Caterers LLC's reply
After all these years I sincerely appreciate how you still enjoy my cocktails and hospitality, Jennie. Thank you!
- What should the customer know about your pricing (e.g., discounts, fees)?We are not on the low end of the price spectrum; you get what you pay for as well as peace of mind. Nearly 25 years experience, timetables and everything we include in our quotes and services (Labor. Supplies. Bar Tools. Ice. Garnishes. Mixers. all are included) and we carry in everything for all types of public and private events. Companies purposely underbid us and tell clients they can 'beat any price 608 quotes' and that's okay. The work we put into an indoor or outdoor event that may last anywhere from 4 hours to 16 hours shows we're totally dedicated to our clients with a smile and helping hands. I prefer to work with those who'd like to make an informed decision based on quality, reputation and experience vs. price only.
- What is your typical process for working with a new customer?Once a client calls or completes the brief event inquiry form; they'll receive a response from me through my Honeybook interface which will include a brochure of beverage service options or a proposal from an item they've already selected. Here you may feel free to select the option best for your event and schedule a tasting* for your desired signature cocktail(s). *Tastings are held in Madison WI.
- What education and/or training do you have that relates to your work?I hold an Associate's Degree in Applied Science in Hospitality; Hotel & Restaurant Business Management with a focus on: Marketing, Accounting, Meeting Management, Cost Control, and Tourism Law. I am a member of the Phi Theta Kappa Honor Society and I am Learn2Serve Certified (WI 778408) and, I also hold a ServSafe Manager's Certification (12874207). All in all, I have over 23 years of hands-on experience behind the wood.
