    If you’re in need of bartending services for your wedding or rehearsal dinner...look no further. Top Shelf is excellent. We used them for my son’s rehearsal dinner and they were “AH-mazing!” From the day I called them 10 mos before the date they had it totally under control.
    The bride was from Georgia and I requested some type of peach signature sangria and they made the most delicious Georgia Peach Sangria. Every one loved it and I was afraid there might not be enough but have no fear they had it totally under control.
    The 2 bartenders couldn’t have been nicer and were so friendly to all our guests. Nothing was too much for them. They even had to move the bar from upstairs to downstairs when dinner was served and it was seamless!
    Simply put working with Top Shelf was the easiest thing ever. They knew exactly how much we would need for our party of about 85 people and they were spot on.
    Thank you Bre, Erin, Tiffany and I think the other bartender was Steve.
    Everyone was incredible.
    Just a note... while we were planning one of the women I was working with had a baby and I had no idea as whenever I had a question it was answered in no time!
    For any type of party..if you need top bartenders and planning call Top Shelf right away! You will be thrilled!

    We had Top Shelf listed as a "preferred vendor" at the venue for our daughter's wedding. Johanna Lindsey was our bartender and she was fantastic! I met her during the pre-ceremony festivities and she was very friendly and took great care of early guests. During the reception, she remembered I liked Reisling wines and my husband was partial to Dos Equis, so whenever she saw us near the bar, she made sure we were doing fine with our drinks. I was a bit shy of approaching her while she had long line of guests waiting, but she pulled me right up and made sure to take care of our needs first. Very professional lady! Top Shelf's owner, Erin, was my contact during the entire process - from ordering to the end billing. We felt for the service, we had an excellent company with which to work. We recommend Top Shelf and would definitely utilize their services again.

    We could not be happier!! They worked with us to customize what we wanted to serve and provided an AWESOME bartender (Lance) for the day of the event. Lance made sure my husband and I were never empty-handed and remembered our drink orders throughout the evening. What I really liked about the way they set up your order is that you only pay 75% of your estimated cost up front, and they charge you afterward for whatever over that amount you use. If you don't use that full amount, they reimburse you for what you don't use that is unopened. How can you go wrong with that?!

    We used Top Shelf for our 40th Class reunion in September and again in November for our daughter's wedding. We were very pleased with the service at both events. For the reunion, Bre was very easy to work with and helped me understand the whole liquor license process and came up with the best solution for all of us. And because the food at the reunion was an hour and a half late, having the alcohol with a friendly bartender saved the evening. At the wedding, we didn't have time to be concerned about anything that afternoon and evening and we didn't need to be. The bartenders were setup when they said, were friendly and professional. My son said one of them even complimented him on his best man speech. It was so nice to only pay for the alcohol that is consumed and have them bring it all and take it away. What a wonderful team to have with you to help make the day perfect.

    Your team was so easy to work with even long distance! Your pricing was very affordable and I loved that what ever we did not use, we didn't get charged. Not having the responsibility to go out and buy and trying to calculate what we needed was a huge convenience for us. With last minute add on, you guys did awesome!! I will definitely recommend your services to family and friends.

    These guys are amazing! My fiance and I had dropped the ball on figuring out our bar for the reception when my wedding coordinator recommended Top Shelf. They were available on short notice (weeks prior to the wedding) and were so professional. All my guests loved how great the service was and some even asked for their contact info after the wedding.

    Top shelf saved me! I had originally booked another bar service that ended up not working out and Top Shelf came through amazingly for me! They were extremely good at communicating and taking care of all my requests and update before the day of. Day of, the bartenders were awesome--always make sure the guests as well as my husband and I were taken care of!

    Top Shelf, was just that, top shelf. They were simply great to work with. Their main contact met with me in person, walked me through the process of what they do and what the cost would be. Tremendously affordable, they provide the bartenders, who were great. I would describe this as a full turnkey process with not a lot for the wedding party to worry about. Would recommend them to anyone, you can't go wrong.

    Top Shelf Bartending took care of our company for our holiday party this year. They were very accommodating, responsive and incredibly friendly! Justin and Kimberly did a fantastic bartending our event! Bre was excellent to work through the details of the event prior to the day arriving. She made this service attainable for our company based on our budget. It was worth every penny! Their team went above and beyond to cater to all of our needs including greeting our employees at the front door with a tray of signature drinks I was able to select in champagne flutes to add an elegant touch to our party. They arrived on time to set-up and helped take everything down including clean-up. We were also able to hire an additional server to work our party from their company! She was fantastic with the group! We appreciate everything you did to make our event outstanding! We can't wait to work with your team for years to come! Thank you for your professionalism and excellent service!

    We have booked Top Shelf for our January wedding and after trading emails with them, doing so was a no-brainer. I had reached out to a couple of services about the unique situation we're in, as we're having brunch wedding and wanted just a few limited options to keep things from getting crazy. Other bar tenders seemed unsure or hesitant to help, but not Top Shelf. They responded immediately with suggestions, experience from other brunch weddings, and new ideas for signature drinks that they were eager to try. I felt instantly that they knew exactly what they were doing and would be competent and professional. They are so good that our venue will no longer work with any other bartending service!

    Top Shelf supplied and bar tended my wedding this past weekend. They were great to work with! They put up with me changing my order over and over, were very quick to respond every time, and were affordable. You only pay around 75% of your invoice before the event and they either pay you and buy back what isn't used or, if you go over, you pay the rest after. They make sure to bring a lot though so I'm not sure how common that is. I really suggest them!

    Top Shelf bar tended & provided alcohol for my wedding out at Red Barn Farm last weekend. It was "Top Shelf"! We hired 3 bar tenders and had 2 bartenders. We had rowdy, heavy drinkers and I didn't see one line all night! My guests loved it! The drinks looked just as good as they tasted. Well worth the money! They buy back alcohol too.

Oh and I think you meant "we hired 3 bartenders and had 2 bars". Didn't want anyone to think you hired 3 and only got 2, lol. Thanks again for trusting us to be part of such a special time in your lives. Best of luck! Top Shelf Bartending

    I loved their services. They were able to tailor my needs and provide ways for me to be creative to
    try and cut down on some of the liquor costs. Their staff was very sweet and my guests loved the bartender

    Top Shelf did a great job supplying alcohol for our wedding reception! (The event space provided the bartenders). We went into the store to talk about our wedding and sample the drinks. This was very helpful. Top Shelf delivered to our reception on time and picked up the unopened bottles the day after. This made planning the alcohol so easy, trusting the experts to help us to have the right amount for a successful reception. Their amount planned was right on target. Everything was professionally handled. Thank you Top Shelf!!

    We had a great experience with Top Shelf! They were extremely easy to work with, quick to reply to questions and professional. They provided 2 bartenders for the 2 bars at our reception for approximately 200 guests.

    They helped to determine what amounts of each type of alcohol should be provided at the wedding and they buy back what has not been opened. Very reasonably priced! Our guests were happy with their service at the reception. Overall, a very good experience!

    The people at Top Shelf were wonderful to work with. They were so helpful and really took time to discuss what we wanted for our daughter's reception. They were set up and ready to go just as we had discussed prior to the day. They worked well with our other vendors to provide a wonderful atmosphere. They represented us well as they served our guests, and we will choose them again for future events!

    We used Top Shelf Bartending for our son and daughter-in-law's wedding reception. They were great to work with from initial inquiries through paying the final invoice the week after the event. The great thing about Top Shelf is that they credit you back any unopened product (for us 10 bottles of wine and some cases of beer). That allows you plan without worrying about getting just the right amount. Our bartender, Bethany, was great! She was very personable (full of smiles) and communicated with us throughout the night. Erin, the owner, was also very kind and helpful in all of our dealings with Top Shelf. I would definitely use Top Shelf again in the future and would recommend them to others without hesitation.

    Top shelf invited us into the store to talk about our wedding and sample drinks we were thinking about. We wanted to have an open bar with just beer and wine so save money. They gave us the option of having a "signature drink" so that we could offer one mixed drink at the bar and still save a ton of money. They were easy to work with, polite, and personable. We got compliments from our guests on the quality of service from the bar tenders. The bar tenders gave my family what was left of the opened wine and the gallons of the signature drink, so we got our money's worth for what we paid for. We would highly recommend them to anyone looking to have a good time and have quality service.
