Event Staffing

bartender, event, cocktails

We only work with the best and brightest professionals in your market to staff your event with friendly, warm-hearted people serving our delicious drinks.   

From nearly every market, be it large, medium, or small, you can rest assured that your event will be staffed with talent that is hand-selected from the finest bars across the United States.  

Friendly People who Make Friendly Drinks

The individuals we hire are all highly skilled and professional; therefore personality is our primary consideration.  We ask “will this person provide you with a memorable experience?”.

Personality is the number one asset for our staff.  We like friendly people because we believe friendly people make friendly drinks, and friendly drinks just taste better.  Better tasting drinks are our obsession.

Simplicity

Under most circumstances, it is highly preferable to hire professional bartenders, barbacks, and captains.  Nevertheless, we have developed systems to make serving drinks EXTREMELY simple.

We are constantly mindful of the big picture.  Therefore we utilize color coding systems, laminated cheat sheets, coaching sessions, draft cocktails, pre-dilution, texturizers, and quality control monitoring to ensure the quality of our product,  no matter what the situation.

When providing a positive experience is forced to take a back seat to prepare a challenging drink, that would be counterintuitive to putting intensity into the drink in the first place.

Do You Hire Actors?

We do not facilitate the hiring of actors and models directly, but we do understand there are times when it is appropriate to hire actors and models to serve your drinks.  

Thanks to years of experience, we have developed a method of quality control in challenging situations.  We cannot know the experience level of the entire staff but we run a dynamic service that can adapt quickly to uncertain situations.

The quality of your cocktails and experience should not suffer due to circumstances that are beyond your control.

Need help staffing your event?  Or just want the whole thing off your plate?  Call or email Jason, 917-553-5409, or jason@jlittrell.com
