EVENT BARTENDER, SERVER, AND BAR BACK
*We always take resumes!

About You
You radiate warmth behind the bar/on the floor and bring a positive outlook to every guest interaction. Guests love having you behind the bar so much so that they regularly request you specifically! You’re well-versed in the history, specifics, and production of spirits, wine, and beer and are comfortable sharing this knowledge with guests. You take pride in the details: perfect fresh garnishes, well-balanced cocktails, and a clean work station and bar. That being said, you’re still laid back and ready to roll with the punches as they come in at events (often!) and don’t take things too seriously behind the bar (its cocktails, not brain surgery!). It makes you feel awesome when you do something that helps, enhances, or makes another human’s day.

About Us

We create lasting memories based around unique bar programs and experiences at private events. Our goal is to go above and beyond for the client and their guests at each event, bringing genuine enthusiasm, beautiful bar setups, stunning cocktails, and unrivaled bar staff. We pay extra attention to detail in everything from client consultations and communications to presentation of bars, cocktails, staff, and so on. These details are the foundations for our events and our bartenders are the main show— approachable, hard-working, knowledgeable, and fun! We can’t wait to have you join the team.
