Hiring a cocktail bartender is a great option for those who have a limited budget for their event such as a private party or wedding. We can provide cocktail bartenders (mixologists) and flair bartenders across the UK and Europe. All our staff come with bartending equipment and we provide a shopping list service so all you have to do is organise stock, glassware and ice.
WHITE LABEL SERVICE
We also provide cocktail bartender hire to catering companies, venues and corporate events to help them deliver their bar operations for their clients. We often operate our hire to other professional companies as a white label service.
However, we do specialise in providing a complete cocktail solution with beautiful bars, the latest cocktail trends and beautiful glassware. Our cocktail and mobile bar hire service is completely bespoke and delivers an incredible addition to any event.

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.
