Why do you need a deposit?
Our bartenders are real world bartenders, working at places such as Red Lobster, Olive Garden, Septembers, Disneyland, Buffalo Wild Wings, Applebees, Limericks, Boondocks, M15 nightclub, Lake Arrowhead Resort and Spa, and many other Hollywood and So Cal hotspots. They often have to take the day off to work your event. The deposit insures they do not take the day off and lose money due to a cancelation. For each staff member requested, a $60 deposit is required, payable either through Credit Card or PayPal. This deposit will be credited towards your final contracted amount. The deposit is nonrefundable, unless we are unable to fulfill the contracted agreement.
Are your bartenders licensed?
The state of California does not offer official licensing for bar tenders, but our bar tenders are CERTIFIED by various certification entities, including Mixology, ServSafe, TIPS, and several local County Food and Drink Handling certifications.
What does your staff wear?
The staff wear all black professional clothes including: black dress pants, black long sleeved dress shirt, black restaurant styled shoes, a black belt and black socks.
