Bar Staffing Agency
We are the UK’s largest dedicated bar staffing agency. We have over 1000 bartenders and bar support staff on our database, which we hire to major events across the UK. Our staffing supply includes bar managers, bar supervisors, cocktail bartenders, flair bartenders, back of house support and personal license holders. The Cocktail Service are a trusted events partner to some of the UK’s biggest venues, contract caterers and major events.
A Focus On Training
We prioritise training above all else and have developed a bespoke online training portal that all TCS People are required to undertake. This is not cursory, our training process takes over 6 hours to complete before group induction at our Oxford HQ. Every team member is handpicked for their positivity, personality and ability. Our agency has delivered staffing solutions to major events across the UK and internationally including Pride In London, Badminton Horse Trials, Cowes Week, The Queens Tennis Championships and The Royal Polo.
WHAT STAFF CAN WE PROVIDE?
Below are some of the types of bartender hire available:
Fully trained cocktail bartenders (or mixologists as they are also known) who have a wide-ranging mixology skillset.
We regularly work with drinks brands and high-profile clients who demand a minimum level of expertise when hiring cocktail bartenders. We have rigorous standards that all our cocktail bartenders must meet before they join the team. All our mixologists can deliver quality bar service in even the most demanding of environments from greenfield festival sites to VVIP events.
Cocktail bartenders who are also able to entertain with exceptional bottle and cocktail equipment juggling. Flair bartenders can wow crowds with their skills and are a showstopping addition to any bar service. Flair bartenders have a very specialist skillset so incur a higher hourly hire charge then other bartender hire types, but is more than worth it as Flair Bartender hire is a guest entertainment in itself.
Bar staff who can deliver a high quality, non-cocktail service. Sometimes events do not have the need for a cocktail menu but do require fast and efficient drinks service for the guests. Our bartenders work at events of all types from festivals right through to product launches, corporate events and weddings.
Serving staff who run front of house tray service. Our servers are highly personable and efficient, ensuring all front of house duties are taken care of.
Cocktail bartenders and serving staff who also model is a part of our service. Luxury events increasingly require model staffing and we work closely with the modelling industry to offer beautiful, charming cocktail bartenders and servers to events.
Delivering sampling and event support to brands who need to deliver specific messages to their audience. We work very closely with several drink brands and other household names to support their brand activations through sampling, events and masterclasses.
All bartenders come with included bartending equipment for every hire.
