Very helpful and supportive. Tolerated our group with a smile.
We hired Drink Slingers for a New Year's Eve Party. They were prompt and organized and the service was fantastic!
Kenny and his crew were an absolute blessing for our big day! From planning to closing up the venue, I cannot thank him and his team enough for making our wedding day run as smoothly as it did with over 200+ guests. It started with the planning, where we brainstormed the best options for our budget, our guests, the season and the number of people were were looking to serve. His team arrived well before they needed to and were ready to serve our thirsty guests! His team was so accommodating, making sure the ice was fully stocked and that the liquor and beer weren’t going to run out. I cannot tell you how many complaints we received about the Drink Slingers and how they treated our guests. Our dance floor was packed, people were happy and it was hands down one of the best nights of my life. HUGE thank you to Kenny and the Drink Slingers in being a huge part of our day and making things stress free from the bartending side.
Bartender was prompt with set up and amazing with guests! I would highly recommend.
Worked with Jenny for our July 20th wedding reception. She was super helpful. Always responded quickly to my texts. The bartenders were very professional and did an excellent job. We had about 250 guests. Highly recommend. 👍👍
Kenny did a great job for us this past July 4th! Thanks, Kenny!!
We hired Drink Slingers for our June 1 wedding. I worked with Kenny to coordinate everything in advance. He was VERY helpful in advising on quantities of alcohol, mixers, garnishes, etc. to purchase. We served beer, wine, and 2 signature cocktails (mojito and old fashioned). This was shared with Kenny in advance but the 2 women who showed up on the wedding day didn't seem to know how to make an old fashioned but got better as the night went on. They were also a little late in getting set up so they didn't seem super prepared for cocktail hour to start. The mojitos were made INCREDIBLY sweet, we ran out of sugar about 2.5 hours into our 5 hours event. However, both ladies were incredibly nice, professional, and provided great service to our crowd of about 100. They kept the space very neat and organized. All-in-all with Kenny's assistance upfront and the bartenders' sweet personalities, it was easy to overlook the little bit of a rocky start. I would book again but would provide a little more guidance on the signature cocktails.
While I never actually made it up to the bar myself, countless wedding guests came up to me to say how great the bartenders were! They were so efficient that I never once saw a line at the bar in over 6 hours!! They were personable, knowledgeable, and fast.. I couldn’t have made a better choice. Kenny called the week of to finalize details.. I didn’t have to worry about calling him first. They arrived an hour early to set up and even cut our fruit for garnishes! Don’t choose anyone else.. you won’t regret hiring Kenny and his staff!
These guys did a great job overall. I received many compliments about them for quick service, good drinks, and very personable. My only issue was they showed up 10 minutes before the start of my daughter's wedding. We had agreed on 2:30 and I agreed to pay them for 2 extra hours, but they didn't get there until 3:20. That was a little stress that I didn't need at that moment!
We ended up asking for two bar tenders which they sent. We specifically asked for no tip jar and they set one out any way. They then tried to charge more than the $165 for the second bar tender. They told guests including the Bride that we were out of stuff when we wasn’t. It was in the bottom of coolers and we had more in the walk- in. The one bar tender that was in charge was not friendly nor dressed for the event. I will not be using them again for any future events and I would not recommend them. I’ll find someone local that I know and trust.
Response from Drink Slingers Bartending Service:
The bartenders told the guests multiple times that they couldn’t have a tip jar until finally the brides father of all people flipped over one of the shakers and started putting money in it. The groom then came up and took my bartender outside to cuss her out about having a tip jar and made her count the tips out with him ($38). The original booking was supposed to be until 9:30 but they asked the bartenders to stay until 10:00 so that is why the amount due was more than $165. I told them to not worry about the extra half hour and to just pay the $165 for the second bartender which they refused to pay and still haven’t paid. The only time the bartenders told guests they were out of something was during cocktail hour when they ran out of titos and were set up at a different location than the main bar where the reception was taking place. Once they moved to the actual reception bar they had titos again. Absolute nightmare customers. You can’t please everyone.
Kenny and his staff were fantastic, they were set up and ready serve when guests arrived and handled the large group (250) without issue. I would use them again without hesitation
I am so glad I found you guys on Gigsalad. Everything was perfect! Thank you so much!!!
Kenny was very helpful and always finding something to do to keep everything running smoothly. I feel that Paige could have jumped in more to help or ask guests what they needed, drinks etc. Overall, however, they were both very pleasant to work with. Thanks!!!
Exceptional Service, this is definitely the way to go for Events!!!
Was a great service, will definitely use them for all if our events! Gave us more time to focus on event with no worries snout beer garden!
Bartender were great.
Kenny was great! On time and very fun. I’d hire him again.
On time, competent and a delight to work with. Thank you!
Great bartender I would hire her again
Kenny was an awesome bartender. When the vendor forgot to place my liquor order he was still able to work with the limited liquor we had.
The package they recommended for alcohol was insufficient and when problems with shortages occurred during the wedding they were unable and unavailable to communicate a resolution that didn't require more alcohol to be purchased an hour after the bar had even opened for my guests. This was not only their fault but as experienced wedding bartenders this situation should not have got the point it had.
Response from Drink Slingers Bartending Service:
Sorry the customer felt that the alcohol shortage was our fault however the customer chose to have cannon blast and jackoblast rather than a traditional rum and chose vanilla vodka over a traditional vodka. They also had Jameson and crown apple, which the wedding party filled 3 flasks and did shots of while the bartender was setting up before even the actual wedding. Then guests proceeded to do shot after shot during cocktail hour rather than drink cocktails. The "wedding planner",who drank a quarter of a 5-liter box of Chardonnay was drunk and overreacted claiming all the liquor was gone after cocktail hour although the only thing that was gone was Jameson and crown apple. She made the claim that this party of 80 people should have had 20 bottles of liquor which equates to a 1/4 bottle of liquor for every single person which is absurd plus there were 8 cases of beer and 15 liters of wine. She proceeded to go buy more Jameson and crown apple rather than have the guests drink what the bride and groom ordered. At the end of the reception there was an excess of beer, liquor, wine and mixers. The issue was not the amount of liquor it was the fact that the guests weren't drinking what the bride and the groom requested. Also, every party is different, with different tastes and drinking habits so if they were expecting heavy, heavy drinkers that is something we should have known about as we can only guesstimate the amount of liquor for the size of the party.
Showed up early to setup and professionally dressed. Very friendly to everyone and had many compliments on their service. Great bartending service.
Kenny was an amazing bartender. He helped make our night perfect! Would highly recommend. Thanks Kenny!
What a relief to have servers and bartenders at our graduation party so we could enjoy the special day with our family and friends!
