My buddy can pour drinks. Why should I hire a professional bartender?
You probably know someone who can pour a beer and make a rum and coke, but there's some huge benefits to hiring professionals.
In our opinion, a really great bar can completely elevate an event, be a talking point and gathering place for guests, and make a memorable impression. And we promise, our custom built bars look way better than a folding table.
It's like hiring a caterer versus getting Aunt Mary to make peanut butter and jelly sandwiches. No offense, Aunt Mary.
How much do your services cost?
Our pricing is simple - there's a charge for bartenders, a bar rental fee, and a flat fee per head that covers everything else we provide (glassware, cocktail ice, non-alcoholic ingredients...and so on).
Please get in touch to receive a detailed quote, as it depends on the size of your group and length of service.
*We believe in community, and in giving back. If you are planning a non-profit or community-focused event, we'd love to hear from you.
What about guests who don't drink?
Each event includes a specialty zero-proof craft cocktail, specifically designed for those who choose not to imbibe. We can also create children-specific drinks, and feature local craft lemonades, sodas, and juices.
What if I just want a good ol' vodka soda?
For those who prefer to keep it simple, we'll have mixes on hand for many standard highballs. (But we'll still try and win you over with our featured cocktails!)
How does liquor licensing work?
Due to BC liquor laws, we cannot apply for a Special Event Permit for you (if it's needed; this depends on your venue), or purchase alcohol for events. However, we can walk you through the process step-by-step in whatever way works best for you - phone, email, or in-person - and we'll create your shopping list as well.
Our goal is to take the headache out of the process for you, and make sure you've got everything you need for your event.
Can I still hire you during Covid?
Yes! We follow all Provincial Health Orders, use a lot of sanitizer, and our bartenders wear masks.
Our company has done small events all through 2020 in a way that keeps you, your guests, and ourselves safe, but still ensures we all have a great time.
