Austin Bartending Co. offers a full service, customized bar experience for you and your guests. We provide a consultation prior to the event date in order to create a customized drink menu for your event. Our bartender(s) will arrive 30-60 minutes prior to the time of the event in order to set up the bar area. Set up includes preparing garnishes (e.g. cutting limes), icing beer, wine, champagne, etc. Our bartender(s) will also be there up to an hour after the event is scheduled to end for clean up of the bar area.
Usually bartenders can handle 1-100 people per bartender. However, in order to ensure proper tending of the bar area and minimize the waiting time for your guests, we recommend 2 staff for 75+ guests. This may be 2 bartenders or 1 bartender and 1 bar-back. The number of staff for your event will be discussed during your personal consultation.
A Bar-back stocks the bar with liquor, ice, glasses, beer, garnishes, and so on. The bar-back receives a portion of the bartender’s tips. A bar-back helps the bartender. Often, a bar- back may be responsible for supporting bartenders in pouring beers, wines, and simple mixed drinks.

On the day of your event, we bring the bar-and we set it up. We’ll keep the liquor flowing and your guests happy. If you like, we’ll even answer the door.
You don’t have to tell us to clean up empty glasses. You don’t have to worry that we won’t know our drinks, or that we’ll be late, or that you’ll have a mess to clean up afterwards. Just relax, enjoy your event, and let us take care of everything. This is Austin after all!
