“Truly Amazing!”

I’ve been a cater for almost two years now and I’ve watched beyond bartending at many of my wedddings. They have been the best bartending company’s that I have meant in my career so far not only are they very well organized with their job they have fantastic customer service and truly takes care of each and every customer and I have been able to make a true bond with them. I plan on getting married within the next two years and I will defiantly be using them as my bartenders Dave, Lauren, and their staff are truly amazing !

“We would give them 10 stars if we could!”

Beyond Bartending delivered exactly what we were expecting after carefully selecting them based on their 5-star reviews! Both Lauren and Dave were kind, professional, and timely in their responses no matter when we called or emailed in the months leading up to our big day. We went with their bartending service only package and even though they didn’t have to, they helped us out greatly by providing a detailed list of recommendations for quantities of beverages based on our guest count. We can’t thank them enough because having this organized list was so beneficial with planning and budgeting accordingly! The attention to detail on our big day was everything we wanted and more – the bartenders were not only attentive and amazing with our guests, but they were extremely devoted to making sure that my husband and I were taken care of and had refills or water for us as needed – we didn’t walk up to the bar a single time! These guys really took care of us and were genuinely happy to be there, it’s wasn’t just another wedding for them – it was Alexia and Julio’s big day and they went above and beyond in both service and hospitality. From the overall business performance to the pricing and top-notch quality of service, Beyond Bartending came through for us and we would give them 10 stars if we could! Word of mouth is the best review and we will be telling our friends about y’all! Thank you for everything!
