What locations do you serve?
We currently service Western North Carolina and the Upstate area of South Carolina. Please contact us if your event is out of our radius as we may be able to work something out to accommodate you.
How many bartenders do I need for my event?
To best serve your party, we recommend one bartender for every 60 guests.
Can you tell me what alcohol/mixers I need to buy?
We provide all of our clients with a customized Liquor Shopping List. We'll make sure you have everything you need.
Can I get a bar for my party?
Yes! We can supply you with an actual Mobile Bar for your event. You can also add one to one of the smaller packages if you need it. Please contact us about that or any other Customized Add-On's you may desire.
How do I reserve a date?
Contact us by phone, text or email to get a reservation started. We'll get some information about your event and secure a date with a deposit.
Do you require a deposit?
Yes, a $100 deposit is required at the time we reserve your event date. That can be handled by cash, check or credit card.
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 30 minute 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 ;)
What are your rates?
Please see our Services 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 up front before we book the date. If there's something you need that we don't have listed, please ask! There's a good chance that we can arrange it for you!
What forms of payment do you accept?
Credit card, cash or check will all work fine for us. Whatever is most convenient for you.
How much do you charge if I want to keep you for a extra hour?
Additional hours are charged at $50 per hour per bartender.
Are you licensed?
All of our Professional Bartenders are fully trained in bartending and certified in the T.I.P.S./ServSafe North Carolina On-Premise Alcohol Server Training Program. We also have a Certified Cicerone on staff who has a deep and well-rounded knowledge of beer and beer service.
Are you insured?
Yes, we carry our own business insurance, but that doesn't cover you or your guests in the event of a problem. Check with your own homeowner's insurance agent if you have a question or check out www.PrivateEventInsurance.com.
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.
