Dane and Rick worked our private event and were fabulous. This was our third year using The Bartending Company for our annual cocktail party. They always arrive on time, the bar set up looks beautiful, and they are professionals. They even helped us move some tables too! Oh yeah, and the cocktails are awesome. Thanks guys!

Wow! We booked The Bartender Company for our wedding reception on 8/19/17 and it was one of the best decisions we made. Carlos and his team are the most professional vendors we worked with during our entire wedding planning process. From booking to bar breakdown this company exceeded my expectations.

We held a venue walk through with all of our vendors and Carlos was on time, and had excellent input on how and where the bar should be set up in the venue. My hubby had a special request to have Yamazaki whiskey provided for the VIP (wedding party) at our reception and Carlos did not disappoint, complete with a password required to order the special whiskey at the bar (love that!). I was most grateful that booking with The Bartender Company meant complete all inclusive services. They provided the staff, insurance, glassware, alcohol, mixers, signage, table decor, tables and linen...EFFORTLESS!!!!

We gave Carlos a few ideas of our favorite drinks and he created 3 signature drinks that were a huge hit the whole night.

Now onto the amazing bartenders, Andy, Gigi and Dane...these guys were for lack of a better word, perfect! Here is a direct quote from our wedding planner "They were awesome to work with! I am still in awe with how quickly they set things up and how smooth of a transition it was. They left the bar area spotless and were able to break everything down rapidly! They'll definitely receive future business recommendations from me!" All of our guests RAVED (wish I could bold and underline) about how wonderful the bar service was!

I would recommend and book The Bartender Company for any event without hesitation. Thanks again guys!!!

The Bartender Company was amazing at our wedding! We had started to book with another company before finding this company, and I am SO happy we changed our mind! The bar was beautifully set up, and the bartenders kept all of the drink choices very organized and neat. My guests all raved about the service and I would totally hire them again!

This is the 4th year in a row we have hired The Bartender Company, and the third that we have had Dane. They are responsive, professional, and have a wonderful bar display. Dane is amazing. This year we missed Amanda, but Rick was amazing as well. All of our guests enjoy chatting with them or they make amazing drinks with fresh delicious ingredients. They will make your party a success.

I hired The Bartender Company for my wedding, and all I can say is that they're the ones you want if you're looking for utter perfection. I have very high standards, and Carlos and his team totally blew me away with their professionalism, attention to detail, and service -- literally from the very first email.

I emailed for a quote, and Carlos immediately sent me a list of everything they include in their wedding package, plus a quote. They have exactly one package for weddings, and it is all-inclusive with signature drinks, full-bar, wines, and beers. The package has add-ons like wine service for dinner or insurance for your venue. With that said, they were extremely flexible with us and accommodated all of the little edits we wanted to make, such as changing the names of drinks on the menu, serving our own wine and cider, and serving drinks in special copper cups we were giving out as favors.

They made my job a breeze. I chose the signature drinks with their help, paid, and that was pretty much it. They took care of everything else. I didn't even have to think. They were completely on top of every single detail. On the day of, everything went perfectly without my input. No last-minute questions, no issues. They arrived, made my guests very happy, made me very happy, worked so fast that there was never a line, made delicious cocktails, cleaned up, and bam. My experience was perfect down to the last detail.

Last thing: the number one way I judge companies is, how good are the people running it? Turns out, the Bartender Company just has genuinely nice people like Carlos and my 2 bartenders working for them. They were an absolute pleasure to work with. I probably won't be getting married again, but if I were, I'd pick them every time. Maybe I can get them for my 10 year anniversary or something...

Yet again, The Bartender Company hit it out of the park yesterday, making our party extra special and memorable. Dane, our bartender for two parties now over the past 13 months, did an exceptional job. The bar he set up was absolutely lovely, making our unruly backyard look elegant and organized. The drinks he made were thematic, delicious, and beautiful. His conversation was friendly and fun, just the right amount of engagement. He missed part of the Warriors game to stay late to take care of our guests, and his clean up was stealth. Thank you to Dane and, as always, Carlos at The Bartending Company for making our event a success. We just love you guys!

This review is way overdue. First time I had the bartender company's drinks at my friend's Halloween party and loved it! We hired them for our anniversary tropical party and it was an amazing experience. They make the best delicious drinks. The bartenders were very professional and friendly. We got a lot of compliments from our guests. Totally recommend them!

The Bartender Company is as good as it gets! They will handle EVERYTHING for you! Ice, cups, mixers, coolers, mixers, garnishes, spirits (obviously)...they have you covered 100%! The bartenders are EXTREMELY professional. They require little to zero assistance when setting up or tearing down. They are very polite and will treat your guests WELL. As the host, my glass was never empty...they are one step ahead of you and always looking out. Also, it's important to mention, they make bomb-ass drinks! The Bartender Company will come up with a whole personalized drink menu for you! Trust them!

I booked them for a corporate party at Facebook and we will not contract anyone else. They are our go-to bartenders! BOOK THEM!

In a word: wonderful! Carlos was quick to respond and helped me through the paperwork for our event. Andy and Dane were excellent, familiar with our venue and set up quickly. They took wonderful care of our guests and helped me out throughout the evening. I look forward to working with them all again at future events!

Andy was incredible! Set up/take down was flawless. Drinks were beautiful and delicious. Carlos was quick to respond and very helpful as well. If you're looking for an efficient, professional, well priced bartending service, this is as good as it gets.

Was at an event yesterday and had the pleasure of having bartenders Dane and Amanda. They were engaging, fun and made the night a joy. Their drinks were over the top good and would highly recommend these two to tend bar at any event. I hope soon to attend another event where The Bartender Company is serving. 5 stars. Great job Dane and Amanda. You have a fan for life.

If you are looking for a top notch experience from planning to execution, look no further! The Bartending Company is absolutely fantastic. Carlos was prompt and very helpful in planning an inventive cocktail experience for our wedding weekend "Welcome Dinner." He helped us design a menu full of signature drinks -- including lavender lemon drops, cucumber gin sours, manhattans, and more -- and stocked our bar with top shelf choices for liquor, beer, and wine.

Our bartenders, Andy and Gigi, showed up early to ensure the bar was properly set up and ready for guest arrivals. Our guests raved about their cocktails, and we were equally delighted (my husband and I are cocktail snobs). The service was flawless. The bar setup was beautiful and complemented our backyard setting perfectly.

In short, The Bartending Company exceeded our expectations and I recommend them with my highest regards. I would love to book them again!

Carlos and his team did a fantastic job. From getting a quote, to clean up at the event--they were polite, professional, but fun. They do a great job of setting up the bar(s), making it all look really great for a totally reasonable price. I really liked the way they can tier their services too, so that you have some flexibility (i.e. plastic versus glassware, etc.). I will definitely use The Bartender Company in the future, and recommend to anyone hosting a private event.
