I come with all of my own bar supplies & tools, and the bar table.
I have a variety of signature cocktails, and will help create custom blends for any event during any season.
I service the Greater Bay Area.
I hired Kinjal to help me staff a tailgate party at Stanford. I had a big ask — 15 bartenders ready to work at 9am on a Saturday — and Kinjal delivered flawlessly. Not only did she bring extra hands to make sure we were covered no matter what happened, but she and her team also worked incredibly hard and with smiling faces the entire time. Kinjal herself was absolutely incredible. She went above and beyond our expectations, communicated concisely and consistently, and offered to help with everything we needed onsite. I cannot recommend her enough, and we're eager to work with Kinjal in the future. Thank you for making my event a breeze!
Response from Once Upon A Bartender:
Thank you Kayla! I too look forward to working with you again in the future.
Kinjal tended bar for our casual corporate offsite event and did an amazing job. On time and on budget. She was very attentive to the needs of the guests and cleaned up like a champ. I highly recommend for any and all events you may be planning.
Kinial is Awesome!! My party is a Hit! She made some Delicious Hawaiian and other mixed drinks. She gave me a list of what to purchase and she even volunteered to buy ingredients I could not find at the store. Save me lots of time!! I highly recommend her!!!
She arrived on time and was super complete with her bar set up. We had a small party so she wasn’t slammed with orders and it was pretty chill. Appreciate the clean up too! Will definitely hire her again. 👍🏼
I hired Kinjal for a corporate event. I had some questions prior to the event about the plastic cups that were being provided and she was very prompt in responding. She was on time, quietly set up, and cleaned up quickly. Thanks Kinjal!
Kinjal and her team were amazing! It was our daughters wedding event and I couldn’t have been happier with their service, professionalism and courtesy towards our guests.
Communication through the process was timely and perfect.
We would welcome the opportunity to hire Kinjal again!

Kinjal was the bartender at our garden party, and was a great choice. She arrived on time, set up swiftly and then proceeded to make great cocktails and drinks for all our guests quickly and with a smile. Would recommend and would definitely hire her again.
I wholeheartedly would recommend Kinjal for your event. She was incredibly helpful. It was obvious that her sincere desire was to help our event be a success; which it was in great part thanks to her efforts.
Kinjal was amazing. Thank you

Kinjal was very good at communicating throughout the entire process. She brought exactly what she promised and had a very positive attitude. Thank you Kinjal!
Kinjal was our bartender for a party of 100 people and she was wonderful. Worked nonstop making fantastic drinks. We ran out some items and she had her assistant go restock so the party continued within a hitch. Really kind and professional. Many of our guests have inquired about her and plan to hire her and we will surely hiring again for our next party!
Excellent and quick on making drinks very friendly
Made my guest very happy everyone enjoyed her
Kinjal did a fantastic job bar tending at our house party! She was so prompt, responsible, and personable. And she knows her bar! I would happily have her work at our event again!
Once Upon A Bartender, Kinjal, was the mixologist for our wedding. She was great. We had seventy five people. She was working solo with help from one associate to deal with ice/cups/refreshing empties. We never had a line. She was fast and accurate. Made great drinks. Everyone had a fun time and no complaints. Would highly recommend her to do another event for us any time.
Kinjal was amazing. We had a very large group and she managed to take care of everyone. She was fun and had a great attitude. I will definitely use her services again.
We hired Kinjal for our 4th of July party. She is energetic, fun and super friendly. She really engages with guests and adds to the party atmosphere. I will definitely use her again.
