I work in a high rise office building near the Embarcadero in SF... with the craziest requirements for insurance for any vendor... My company puts on a holiday cocktail happy hour every year and my normal bar tending vendor was not available --- with over a months notice... we'll just say they are not the best beverage company...but The Bartender Company is!!!
Carlos, the owner saved the day! He made every effort to communicate, especially with our last minute needs!!! I chose this company because out of everything I looked for this one had a true sense of service and the brand was clearly higher quality!
I don't know how he managed to be in several places at one time, but he showed up made sure everything was good to go and went on to his other clients.
Bobby the bartender that night was friendly, flexible and able to work in an unconventional space (an office).
The best part(s):
1. Coordination from Carlos on everything.
2. The set up was professional and looked amazing (sorry no pics).
3. The qualifications for Insurance were met, and this is a legit operation.
I've been in the hospitality and travel industry over 15 years and this service was outstanding. I would love to see these guys at more events we have, and really recommend them not only for corporate events, but social too!

The Bartender Company surpassed all expectations for my 30th birthday party this past weekend! Carlos was so accommodating and responsive in coordinating. Andy was a fantastic bartender that catered to my 50 guests. The price was also awesome! I had got multiple quotes from catering/event companies that could not provide a better quote than Carlos! Can't wait to use them again for another event!
The Bartender Company is incredible! Carlos who I was in contact from the beginning was so knowledgeable and can tell he knows what hes doing. The day of my wedding was awesome they arrived to set up and had drinks rolling earlier then I had asked. They came fulley staffed with 4 amazing bartenders there was never a wait and not to mention I had 200 guest. My guest kept telling me all day that they couldn't believe how beautifully the bar was set up and how nice the bartenders were. We had 2 signature drinks and I told Carlos that one will be a Mai Tai and the other would be a Mi Chelada. The Mi Chelada can be a tricky drink to make if it isn't done right, my family being Mexican can be hard to impress since it is a drink that is at every family event. Carlos re-assured me that it would be perfect and it definitely was. Thank you Carlos your team surpassed my expectations!

The Bartender Company was fantastic! From the first step of getting a customized quote, they were efficient and friendly. Carlos was easy to correspond with and knew the business well. He created a great package for me that was exactly what we needed. I chose him from 3 other options easily. He came out a few days before the event to see the space and do a quick walk through of the day's agenda. When the event day came, he and the bartender Gigi, arrived on time and ready to set up! Set up was quick and efficient and Carlos left to let Gigi do her magic! Gigi took great care of our guests (and made sure my drink was always full) which was a big relief as the host of the party to have someone I could rely on! I would definitely recommend them for party big or small and will be calling again when it's time for our next event! Thank you Carlos and Gigi, you helped our event shine! :)

Dane is awesome. Thank u so much for your service tonight. You were amazing. Best drinks and company. He was very social, customer oriented and a job well done. Very professional, clean and fun to be around. I would recommend him to all!!!
The Bartender Company is amazing!! Carlos was super responsive preparing the details pre-party, and Gigi our bartender was excellent: she was smiling all night, all our guests were raving about her drinks, super professional and friendly. She had to carry all her material and bottles up the ramp and never asked for help or complained, all with a smile! Many thanks Carlos and Gigi!!
100% would recommend for any and every occasion! I recently hired the Bartender Company for a corporate event in Mountain View and I could not have had a better experience. Carlos was great to work with and was extremely graceful in responding to my 101 requests (we had some back and forth with the venue and needed to make several changes). He took off all the pressure that comes with event planning and made my job super easy.
On top of the coordination and planning efforts being smooth sailing, the actual service was second to none! Our bartender was professional, friendly, fun and really made the evening enjoyable. He arrived early and had everything set up with ample time to spare, and was very efficient with clean-up efforts.
If you're considering a bar service in the area, look no further! HIRE THEM NOW!

Had a terrific time with support from Dane and Jonathan from The Bartender Company at my holiday party last night. Absolute pros, and great attitudes. Can't wait to work with them again. They set up the bar efficiently, cleaned up after themselves perfectly, kept my guests happy, and are generally great dudes. And made sure that I never had an empty glass.
Last night I was at an amazing holiday party at a friend's house and the beautiful and fun bar was one of the best attractions! Dane and Jonathan were our bartenders for the evening and they were friendly, attentive, and super efficient! Even though there were a good number of people with an appetite for cocktails, there never seemed to be a line. Each cocktail (like the yummy cranberry mules!) was made with care and turned out great. Thanks for helping with such a fun night!

I just attended a wedding where The Bartender Co. was serving all night. The three bartenders (Dane, Rick, and Bobby) did a wonderful job. Delicious, beautiful cocktails, and nice conversation.
As good as it gets is the way to describe this business !! As a last minute stressed party organizer, I get online and this business pops up. I write an email on 3rd September to them not expecting a reply back till the next day as this was a labor day weekend.
Lo and behold, I receive a reply right away from Carlos. I decide to call him right always and he did pick up the phone.
Carlos was an absolute pleasure to work with - caring, flexible, professional and understanding are a few words to describe him.
He was ready with an email quote right away and I wanted some changes made and he accommodated my request right away.
Everybody runs a business and can run a business but when there's empathy, awesome customer service and willingness to meet customer's expectations and needs make a business a rock-star business.
I consider these guys my rock-star "go-to" guys in the future.
Thank you, Carlos for everything you do so beautifully !!
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.
