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.
