A complete professional, David provides the utmost service and quality to his position as a bartender. He puts forth a tremendous amount of personality, style, and expertise in his craft.

New Years Eve Party

David was good humored and professional when he managed the bar at my wedding rehearsal dinner for about 75 guests. We gave him way too many people and not enough ice but he pulled it off without a hitch. Everyone had a fun time and enjoyed David's service. He organized the drinks so that some were available on trays and there was never a wait.

Wedding Rehearsal Dinner

The bartender I had lined up for an important occasion cancelled last minute. I found David’s ad on Craig’s List and reached out to him. He promptly responded and, right from the start, his enthusiasm and professionalism were clear. He was able to say “yes” to the gig even though it was very short notice; arrived ahead of time for the event to orient himself and set up. Nice touches included prepping lemons, limes, snacks and creating a samples display of the beers and mixers available for patrons to ponder. He took the initiative to recommend and create a signature drink for the evening that quickly became the most popular request. Above all, his engaging personality, sense of humor, and attentiveness to our friends and family were a catalyst for an extra fun evening. I highly recommend David as a polished and worry-free (he’s got your back) bartender for any occasion.

Birthday Party

David was a hit at our Christmas party. He served wonderful cocktails to my guests and allowed me to actually enjoy my party. I would recommend him wholeheartedly

Holiday Party

Our Team Bartending Night at work was a huge success thanks to David. He was very accommodating and had a lot of great ideas to make this event fun. He handled himself very well in a front of a room of 20+ employees with all sorts of personalities teaching us how to make a variety of drinks. His energy and positive attitude made it easy for everyone to enjoy themselves and have a good time – I’m pretty sure he had just as much fun as we did!

You were awesome and I hope that we can have another party soon.
