What can I say but WOW! Ro and each and every member her team (including Devo, Adam, Alison, and Debrah) truly went above and beyond for our event this past weekend, in more ways than one. Everyone was so wonderful and easy to work with, super ...
friendly and gregarious (just exactly the sort of fun and positive energy you want at an event!), executed everything we asked of them to a tee (including a list of five pretty complicated specialty cocktails)... and even beyond that, throughout the night they often proactively asked about and worked on things that we honestly wouldn't have even thought of ourselves, but that ended up being SO helpful. They were seriously so incredible, my husband and I couldn't stop talking about how great they were. I feel like they took our event from an 8 to 10!
My husband and I hired Bar Ro'd for bartending and food service for our formal anniversary party/vow renewal with approximately 70 guests. We coordinated the event ourselves with no planner or coordinator or caterer. We cooked ourselves, had family members cook, and got items from several different restaurants—putting all of it together ourselves—and to be honest, we had no idea what we were getting ourselves into doing it this way. Up until the moment Bar Ro'd arrived, it was looking like things might be headed for disaster... but Bar Ro'd totally saved the day. They helped with EVERYTHING, well beyond what we had imagined when hiring them, and the dinner (passed hors d'oeuvres then a buffet) ended up going *perfectly.*
I feel like I haven't focused enough on the "bar" part yet, given that's their specialty—the bar was amazing. My husband and I wanted the drink menu for this event to have all of our favorite cocktails: a pomegranate mojito, a Moscow mule, a boulevardier, a strawberry margarita, and a gin fizz with fresh rosemary and egg white. Bar Ro'd was totally game for this menu from the start, provided everything we needed, and made each of the cocktails beautifully throughout the night. The bar was a HIT! The actual physical bar itself, actually, was also a hit — the custom bar front panel looked amazing, and even more so when the sun set and it lit up!
All in all, hiring Bar Ro'd was one of the absolute best decisions we made for this event. And, like, we made a lot of great decisions—it was a really cool event ;) But seriously, Bar Ro'd took it to another level. I would hire them again in a heartbeat, and I will be recommending them to anyone and everyone looking for bar services (or event staffing in general). Thank you, thank you, THANK YOU, Ro, Devo, Adam, Alison, and Debrah — you were all amazing, my husband and I are incredibly grateful!
