Why should I hire a professional bartender?
There are many reasons why you should hire a professional bartender for your event. First, the Mixologists is the life of the party! You want somebody with experience that can make great drinks fast, and ensure people are having a good time. Second, hiring Luxology Beverage will also save you tons of money because we employ industry standards, portion control techniques; creative cocktails so your alcohol will not run out before your event is over and your drinks are more creative to wow your guests.
Furthermore, it lessens the possibility of people over-serving themselves at an open, self-serve bar, as well as relieving any stress associated with the cocktail service. We make sure that everything is taken care of, so you can enjoy the event! Most important the compliments from your guests.
Do you charge a gratuity on your invoice?
Gratuity is included on mini/large events only in the per-person cost. Non-event parties’ Mixology Classes gratuity is not included so the client can choose either to tip the bartender(s) directly or allow us to display an event appropriate tip jar so that guests can tip the bartender(s) if they please. We ask that the client directly notify us in advance if he or she prefers to tip directly, for our records and the bartender’s information. Gratuity amount is left up to client’s discretion, but according to Industry standards, gratuity is 10-20% of the total bill provided the client is happy with the service received.
