Would not hire again

I made a very poor decision when I decided to go with Sugar Rim Bar as the service for my New Year's Eve event.

I was planning a party of ~45 people on New Year's Eve, and sought quotes for a bartender. Sugar Rim did have a reasonable rate for the evening. However, the good things stopped there.

The bartender showed up more than 1 hour late. This meant that I was not "a guest at my own party" as their motto portends, but rather made me the bartender at my own party for more than an hour.

The bartender that arrived literally did not know how to make a "whiskey sour." Whiskey and sour mix right in front of her. She had to look it up on her phone. She did not know how to make a Tom Collins, Manhattan, or Whiskey Ginger. She only knew how to make drinks that involved the names of the items in them. What I am saying is she was most definitely not a real bartender. I did not pay $250 for someone to pour drinks for 4 hours, I paid $250 for a bartender.

She did not come with a knife to cut lemons and limes ("we will come with all necessary tools"). She poured extremely strong drinks (from what I saw, roughly 3 shots per drink) to the point that my more sensitive guests could not drink them as they were drinking basically straight alcohol.

Sugar Rim offered to provide a customized drink menu and provided a sample. I liked the sample they provided and asked for no changes to the drinks listed on the menu. The bartender did not come with this menu.

After the event, the owner of the company contacted me and asked how my experience was and I told him all of the above information. However, he did not apologize, offer a discount/refund, or even reply to my email explaining the situation.

In short, if you are looking to hire a bartender for your private event, I recommend you look elsewhere.

Response from Sugar Rim Bar:

Most business owners would run, shut down their page, or pretend that this event didn't happen. I've built this company from a single employee of 1 (me) to a staff of over 150 people. New Year's Eve is one of the busiest days for any Bar Service. I will NEVER offer an excuse to a client. This person no longer works for my company. I sent a refund and also offered a Bartend free of charge for the next event. I am grateful for the review and feedback. It's the ONLY way I am able to correct mistakes and keep employees who deliver what we are known for.

Cory the Sugar Rim Bartender

OMG...I was in search of a bartender for my husband's 60th b'day BBQ...Cory was suggested by someone, GREAT CHOICE! He interacted with the guests as though he knew all of us....everyone talked about the "bartender". Thank you Cory and your Booking Assistant, she was so professional! Much success to you! Deborah

Thank you for your review! A lot of companies don't realize that taking care of the client comes first! We look forward to being here for you again in the future.

Review by Joy V.

Cory was amazing! This was a 50th wedding anniversary party that had around 100 guests of all age ranges. He has such a terrific personality - and it went way beyond bartending. He engaged in conversation with the guests, lead a few dances, and really created a friendly and fun atmosphere. Numerous people over the course of the evening asked me how long I had known Cory since he just fit right in with the guests! If I ever host any kind of event like this in the future - this will be the first call I make!

Review by Viyada D.

Fast friendly, efficient, courteous to all of our guest including children (of course non-alcoholic drinks). All of our guest were happy with their drinks and said “he’s charming” and a crowd pleaser. We had over one hundred people and he was able to handle the pressure very well. We definitely will hire him back again next year.
