An efficient Event Bartender can often be the key to a successful reception. A good Bartender will make sure your bar runs smoothly and your drinks are mixed consistently. Hiring professionals will save you from the over-pouring volunteer or self-serve station. It also ensures your event meets even the most stringent venue requirements. Event Bartenders will keep coolers stocked and ice flowing.

Bar Services We Offer
In addition to our highly qualified Event Bartending Staff, Blue Ridge Event Staffing offers a wide array of full-service bar packages. From a simple beer and wine bar to an elevated craft cocktail experience, our office team can work with you on developing the perfect bar set up for your event. Our resident Mixologist can assist with designing a signature cocktail menu that perfectly suits your tastes, personality, and preferences. We also offer additional services, such as ice delivery, cooler packages, disposables or rental management, and mixers and garnish packages.
As a private client, if you contract us for a full bar (a bar serving liquor as well as beer and wine), you may need to obtain a Limited Special Occasion Permit. You would get this from the ABC Board. Clients contracting an Event Bartender to serve beer and wine only, do not need this permit. Start this process early as it takes time to complete. Your entries MUST be submitted at least one month before your event date. We would recommend beginning well before that.
