My name is Allison and I am a fun, energetic, and spunky bartender. I love to make delicious creations and watch people enjoy them. I have been trained in flavor pairing and I have a vast knowledge of beers. I work well under pressure and can handle a crowd with a smile. I have worked all over from the Hamptons to NYC and everywhere in between. I have also been doing private bartending for a long time and I am willing to travel. I love to interact with people and honestly enjoy helping make your special event perfect. I have a full résumé I would be glad to send as we'll as references. I hope to hear from you soon.

What to Expect
I am a people person who is excellent and reading others personalities. I know when to be serious, when to be fun, and exactly who I can do that with. I don't feel the job of a bartender is just to make drinks. Bartenders are drink enhancers. By showing the client proper service the actual drink will be so much more delicious. From my services you can expect what you ask for. I follow directions well and I am confident I can accommodate any needs necessary.
