San Francisco's #1 Private Bartender

At The Bartender Company, we know how much effort goes into planning an event. From wedding receptions to corporate gatherings, family reunions, or even casual get-togethers, there are many challenges in planning a perfect event. Our company was established with one goal in mind: To provide the highest quality of luxury bartender services for private events in the San Francisco Bay Area. 

With our combination of expert bartending, experienced event planning, and top-quality client service, we are the leading choice. Call The Bartender Company today, at 1-800-619-9563, to see how we can make your next private event a memorable experience.

The Bartender Company Process

As a full-service professional private bartender provider, we have fine-tuned our business process to serve clients throughout the San Francisco Bay Area, with locations in Palo Alto, the city of San Francisco, and Alameda. 

We have provided our expert bartending and event planning services to thousands of events since we first opened our doors, over a decade ago.

How have we become a leader in our field? By using our three-step event creation process developed over our years in business. Each step in our formula is made up of components to make the process as effortless as possible. Our three steps are...

Planning – As the leading private-event bartender company in the Bay Area, we know that planning is fundamental to creating an event that guests will talk about for years.

  • First, we work with you to develop an event agenda, including ice chilled beers, signature seasonal cocktails, and wines recommended by our expert staff sommeliers.

  • Next, we provide each client with a simple event agreement. All you have to do is review, sign, and return with a deposit.

  • Once you’re officially booked on our schedule, we begin ordering the supplies for your event, including ice, alcohol, glassware, and garnishes.

  • Finally, if your event needs insurance, we’ll provide you with an insurance certificate filled out with your specific details.

Partying – Now the event preparation begins in earnest. We thrive on providing expert service through all stages of your event, which starts with arriving early to set up. We’ll prepare our homemade syrups for signature cocktails, create an inviting bar area for guests, and get everything ready to serve flawlessly. Once the event kicks off, our experienced bartending staff will serve your guests with the very best in beers, wines, and spirits – all chosen to your exact specifications and menu. Our bartenders are hand-selected for their mastery of the craft, and are certified and insured for quality assurance. Most importantly, we ensure service with a smile and the positive energy needed to make the event an incredible success.

Polishing – The final stage is what sets our company apart from competitors. When the event is drawing to a close, our work continues.

  • First, we’ll make a “Last Call” and begin to close the bar area. Our staff will keep the most popular cocktails and drinks available as long as possible during the breakdown of the bar, so your guests can enjoy one last drink.

  • Next, we dive into cleaning. We’ll leave the bar and service areas spotless and in perfect order. We go the extra mile during cleanup, to give you the very best experience possible.

  • Finally, you will will make one final check of our service area. If there’s anything else needed in terms of event cleanup or even last-minute bartending service, we’re happy to help.
