Scotty did a great job tending bar at the surprise party I threw for my husband last weekend. He is a true professional. . . and so much fun! He worked with me before the party to ensure we had everything necessary, always quick to respond to a phone call or email. Having him tend bar at the party allowed me to attend to the food and actually enjoy my guests! With his help, the party was a total success. We wouldn't hesitate to call on his excellent services again.

What can I say Scott, AWESOME JOB!!! Scott was on time, knew what he was doing and kept everyone at the party happy. I didn’t hear one complaint, and only compliments. Thanks for helping us make our party at the Tacoma Sportman's Club a huge success.

Scott made our charity event at the LeMay Museum just perfect. He has such a fun and open personality and everyone enjoyed talking with him. His help was invaluable when coming up with the perfect drinks and figuring how much of everything we would need! We look forward to getting to work with him again!!

Review by Francesca S.

You and Frank were wonderful additions to our party. Our guests were delighted that you were there, and your friendly, professional attitudes were welcome indeed. I was so pleased with the job you did, and I shall certainly call on you again. I have, as well, already recommended you to friends. Thank you for the organized start and finish to the evening; more than anything else, that is what I counted upon, and you two came through with flying colors. I’ll definitely call you about our next 'fourteenth night' party.

We have used Scott for several event functions at the LeMay Museum. He is always punctual, professional and diligent in all his dealings with us and the client. We will continue to use Scott when events allow.

Review by Trevor B.

Scott was a pleasure to have in class and has since helped immensely with many private events. He is by far one of the most reliable and punctual professional bartenders in the business. Scott is truly a GREAT bartender, not only does he mix amazing cocktails, but he'll entertain and make ya laugh as well. If you need a fun and outgoing bartender look no further. TWO THUMBS WAY UP!!!!

Scott was the perfect fit for our Mom's surprise birthday at the Gig Harbor Yacht Club!
He was prompt, friendly and very competent. Our 75 guests were happy thanks to Scott's help. I would recommend him for any size party.

Booking Info

  • Typical Gig: 240 - 600 minutes
  • Fee: $25.00/ hr tips
  • Insurance: I do not possess liquor liability insurance but can direct clients where to secure an affordable policy. Purchasing 'private event insurance' (a one day, one event, insurance policy) can be quite cost-beneficial, particularly if you are going to cater your own event. Private event insurance clauses always include 'Host Liquor Liability', which then would allow me to pour at those locations which insist upon a liquor liability insurance clause.

Overview

Benefits of having Mallard bartend your party:
Hiring quality bartending for your private event will allow you and your guests to spend your party hours socializing instead of catering to every empty glass.
I will get out from behind the bar to take drink orders and serve them at tables if the nature of the party dictates it.
I efficiently, single-handedly, serve crowds of up to 100 guests and staff equally skilled bartenders to meet the needs of larger parties.

I will get out from behind the bar to take drink orders and serve them at tables if the nature of the party dictates it.

What to Expect:
I will co-ordinate with you beforehand regarding the types and amounts of alcohol you will need to make certain all your guests are accommodated yet avoid over-purchasing of liquor and other unneeded expenses. We will also discuss possible drink ideas that may enhance the theme or flavor of your event. I can offer up options for themes if you're looking for some signiature cocktail ideas for your party. We will cover all items in detail to make certain nothing gets overlooked in planning your gathering. I do not supply or resell liquor but will work with you in a cash bar setting.

What it Costs:
I serve in the greater Tacoma/ Gig Harbor/ Pierce County areas.
My rate is $25.00 per hour tips. 4-hour minimum.
Any pre-party coordinating is complimentary.
