Frequently Asked Questions
What locations do you serve?
We currently service Wake County in Raleigh, NC.
Will you send just any bartender to my event?
Definitely not! We are not a staffing company, which means no random strangers showing up to your door. The President/lead bartender that you communicate and book with will be same bartender onsite for your big day mixing up delicious cocktails for you and all your guests.
Do you provide the beer, wine, or liquor?
No. Sadly, state liquor laws prevent us from furnishing alcohol for events. All alcohol will be supplied by the host. We've partnered with Drizly.com, so you can have your beer, wine and liquor delivered right to your door and at the best prices! You'll be in control when it comes to your beer, wine and liquor selection without having to be stuck in a particular beverage program.
Can you tell me what alcohol I need to buy?
We provide all of our clients with a customized alcohol shopping list. We'll make sure you have everything you need. After you receive your shopping list, you can place your order on Drizly.com and have it delivered right to your door.
Can I select the drinks I want for my event?
Absolutely! Everything about your event is completely selected by you. We can make recommendations for you, but ultimately you decide on everything!
What do we do during our pre-party consultation?
We'll walk through the event area and decide where you'd like us to set up the bar service and go over the drink menu for the event. Basically, we'll make sure everything is decided in advance to avoid any unpleasant surprises.
How many bartenders do I need for my event?
To best serve your party, we recommend one bartender for every 50 guests.
Can I get a bar for my party?
Yes! We can supply you with a mobile bar and back bar for your event.
How do I reserve a date?

What are your rates?
Please see our packages page on this site. Our rates are listed there for each bartending package. Please contact us about any additional add-on services you may require and we can price them out for you. You'll know all of our costs upfront before we book the date.

Do your bartenders come with their own Tools & Equipment?
Yes, we will arrive with shakers, mixing glasses, bar spoons, a muddler, garnish tray, paring knife, bar mats, bar towels, jiggers, bottle openers, wine keys, strainers, and a glass rimmer...all the tools needed to make your event a success!
What about tips for the bartender?
As you may know, tips make up the bulk of any bartender's income. We can opt for a tip jar on the bar or a host supplied gratuity at the end of the evening. That's one of the items we discuss at the pre-party consultation.
