Why  Hire With A Twist?

Hiring a wedding bartender and purchasing your own alcohol for your reception is a great way to stretch those wedding dollars. Many venues require you to purchase their alcohol, which can cost thousands of dollars for an open bar and be one of your biggest expenses. Find venues that allow you to provide your own alcohol and hire a bartender. Purchasing your alcohol at liquor store pricing will have a huge effect on your budget. A bartending service will not only save you money, it will allow you to get creative and add your special touch to the reception. We can work with you to create a specialty drink that goes with your wedding theme.

All of our bartenders are liquor liability insured, come professionally dressed in black and will have all the essential bartending tools. Our bartenders are hand-picked for their bartending skills and outstanding customer service. We expect our bartenders to make your party extraordinary and to help out any way they can to ensure you have a fun and safe event.
