Hiring quality bartending to manage your reception or event is equally as important as the food service and decorations and allows you and your guests to spend your party hours socializing instead of catering to every empty glass.

We are licensed, experienced, professional bartenders versed in over 300 different cocktail recipes. Cocktail bartending events include wedding receptions, holiday/ birthday parties, corporate events and more. We staff skilled bartenders to meet the needs of any size party.

Our credentials include endorsements from the event managers at locations such as the Gig Harbor Yacht Club, LeMay Museum in Fife, Foss Waterway Seaport in Tacoma, Pioneer Park Pavilion in Puyallup, Thornwood Castle in Lakewood, plus many, many more.

Many catering companies offer bartending service and assign ‘someone’ to the task. Maybe you get a bartender who is a gem. Maybe not.
Why take the risk?
With Bartending by Mallard, you get dynamic, attractive, engaging personalities who know the business of successful bartending. You only get one try to make your party a success. Make certain that quality professionals handle your liquor service.

We strive to make every event special. From custom cocktail menus and signature cocktail drinks, all created in conjunction with your desires, to efficient, outstanding service that demonstrates a passion for what we do. Don't entrust your next party to just anyone! We offer true bartending skills plus accountability.

Excellent Service

Highly recommend. Scott and his team served at our wedding last Sunday. Absolutely no complaints, friendly staff, timely communication, showed up on time, and they just seem like overall good people.

Bartending by Mallard was outstanding! We had our wedding reception on January 28th at the Pioneer Park Pavilion in Puyallup and were very impressed by Bartending by Mallard. They did a fantastic job but what I really want to mention is that Scott Mallard was so helpful to me prior to the reception by providing me with great information and advice on what to buy, how much, and what people actually drink. If I hadn't listened we would've ended up with crappy wine and a lot of leftover beer! It pays to listen to a professional who's been doing this for awhile! Thanks so much Scott!

When searching for a bartender, I had no idea where to start but heard great things from our caterers and a few other vendors about Scott and his team. From the first time we emailed him, we were sold from his knowledge, enthusiasm, and helpfulness. He provided so much guidance on the the important bar details we knew nothing about: quantities, ice, tubs for kegs, etc. Our reception overall was a huge hit and I have to say that a lot of that was because of the bar! Scott and his colleague were so prepared and helped keep the bar fun and lively throughout the night. We really appreciate their help in making our night so amazing!
