    I would absolutely use epitome bartending over and over again! The staff was extremely friendly with our guests and the drinks were absolutely delicious and amazing. We did not serve alcohol at our wedding so epitome bartending went above and beyond to make sure that our guests had drinks that were very special. They did all kinds a fancy Italian beverages that people kept coming back for more. I expected just a simple service of different pops or just mixing flavors in with pops, but they absolutely outdid themselves. It was so much better than I could have ever imagined. I got compliments all night of the different drinks the bartenders were making and how delicious they were and I still get compliments today after the wedding about how great our bartending service was. This is a must use bartender whether you're using alcohol or not. You will absolutely the more than pleased with their services!

    Mr. Jenkins was a fantastic bar host and bartender. I cannot say enough about his professionalism and the great quality of his services. I received so many compliments regarding Mr. Jenkins I could not begin to count them on two hands! It was a genuine pleasure to work with him.

    I was impressed from first to last impression. Felt like George truly cared about making our reception the best it could be! Also, my day of the wedding was going to be so busy that George met me the day before at my house to pick up the alcohol. He went out of his way to help me. Thanks so much for lessening my stress level.

    Epitome Bartending exceeded and surpassed everything I expected for bartender services at my wedding reception.

    From the very first contact, George was helpful, responsive, and smart. He had great ideas and incorporated ideas that we already had seamlessly into his presentation.

    If you have a venue that allows you to purchase your own liquor, the savings can be incredible. I would also like to note what a great job George did to make sure I purchased the correct amount that would provide enough for our guests without ending up with a bunch of leftover alcohol. He accomplishes this the same way he accomplishes the rest of his great service...by listening to the client and providing his years of experience and knowledge.

    Our wedding reception took place in a non-traditional venue, a barn that was slightly open to the weather. There was also an issue with uneven floors. George solved this problem before I ever even knew it was a problem. What more can you ask from a wedding vendor than to accomplish that feat?

    The cocktails themselves were delicious and obviously made by expert hands. Everyone loved the signature 'craft cocktail' drinks we chose. They were unpretentious yet still tasted like they were obviously made by someone who knew their craft (instead of tasting like they were made by a crazy drunk uncle like I've seen at so many DIY weddings!)

    George and his staff were friendly and felt like part of the experience of the night while still upholding a great professionalism. He worked well with the caterer and our other vendors. Though I never want to get married again, I can't wait for an excuse to hire Epitome Bartending again.

    The bartenders at Epitome Bartending rocked! They were very flexible, as we contacted them only a week before the wedding and were able to fit us in their schedule. Our guests had nothing but compliments to say about the bartenders. I would definitely recommend them to anyone looking for a bar service!

    Epitome's owner George was so helpful and accomodating with the fact that I was planning a wedding in Ohio all the way from Texas. The day of my event his staff including himself were great. They completely catered to me and that's all a bride could ask for. I could not have asked for a better vendor.

    I cannot say enough how please I was with Epitome Bartending! I found the company through the web - contacted them - and immediately heard back from George, who I worked with the entire time. When I found out he was bartending my actual wedding, I was SO PLEASED! My husband and I literally just got back from our honeymoon two days ago, and without hesitation I can type that Epitome was one of our favorite vendors. I've had 4 people text/email me personally to talk about how nice the wedding was - and how awesome the bartenders were that night. THANK YOU Epitome for making our day so special!!!

    George is as professional as you can get. He went above and beyond to make sure I was always relaxed and made sure that my husband and I never had to worry about anything. He listens and made sure our guests were taken care of and even created a signature drink for us. He constantly checked up on us and even made time to conversate with us during the down time during dinner and bring us our drinks we personally. His responsiveness and customer service is exceptional and highly recommended. I will definitely recommend him and use him for events in the future. Thank you for helping make our day amazing, George. All of our guests loved you.

    Epitome Bartending did a fantastic job for my wedding. They helped me figure out how much alcohol to supply. They were very pleasant to my guests. I didn't receive any negative feedback from my guests at all. They also paid special attention to the head table. Epitome Bartending is a great company to use! I highly recommend them!

    Our bartenders were excellent, they were incredibly friendly and did amazing work with the space that we were able to provide for them. We had a backyard wedding reception and we had them set up the bar in my father-in-law's garage where he does woodwork and they were able to create a professional, upscale-looking bar in that space with very little time. Not only that, but they were very attentive to the groom and myself, making sure that we had everything that we needed all night.

    Epitome was very gracious, answering my many questions, helping me with decisions, and working hard to meet the needs of the event. They worked very well with the venue, making useful suggestions for set-up, and lending a hand whenever needed during the event. They kept the bar line moving quickly, and were very accommodating to guests requests. Epitome went above and beyond, in my opinion, in making the wedding party go smoothly and the friendliness of the staff was excellent. I was delighted to find that I could rely on them with confidence as the party progressed and when it came to clean up. I've never hired a bar service before: they made the experience painless.

    George was awesome. All of my guests complimented me on how great he was as our bartender. He was very helpful throughout the entire process and event. He is dependable and trustworthy. At the end of the evening, my 3 year old nephew got lost in the parking garage and George recognized him and brought him back to us. I highly reccomend epitome bartending. Great price and great service.

    We used Epitome for our bartending services for our wedding with 250 guests in Dayton, OH. They were fantastic. George was great to work with and explained our quote in detail, as we traveled from Chicago for our wedding. They picked up our alcohol the day of our event and chilled it prior to the event - which was great considering we had over 25 cases of beer for the event. George and his staff were very professional for the event. George communicated with me and my father throughout the evening regarding the amount of alcohol that was left (we began to run out of one type of beer). They also went throughout the hall and threw away the empty beer bottles and cups on the tables, which was well above our expectations.

    They pricing was extremely fair for the services that they provided. I would highly recommend Epitome Bartending for any event.

He even helped clean up afterwards. I was very pleased with Rashid and would definitely recommend Epitome Bartending to all my friends. Thanks again
