Drink Slingers helped us with both our rehearsal dinner and wedding celebration. They were great! Sadie was a huge help during the planning phase and was always very responsive. The "bartenders" (truly mixologists) made fabulous cocktails with a friendly smile to go with it.... Read More They were also professional and respectful to our guests. We highly recommend their services, and thank them for playing a key role in making our weekend so fun and special!

These guys and gals are the best. They're professional, friendly, accommodating, and very timely in the planning process. They helped us with our wedding and it was a wonderful experience across the board. They'll come up with a custom menu, bring all the necessary supplies...

Don't get caught up in the cheaper options, you will not regret spending a little bit more for real professionals like those at Drink Slingers.

Drink Slingers was so easy to work with during the planning and execution of our rehearsal dinner. We ended up adding on more services closer to the event date, and they were super flexible updating the contract, etc. We hired one bartender to serve beer and margaritas at our...

Drink Slingers is the best! Brian was incredible. All our guest kept saying what a joy he was. All we had to do was buy the alcohol and they did the rest. It was so affordable and my husband James and I loved the service. We got married on 10.01.2017 at The Sanctuary. It was...

I hired Drink Slingers about a month before my wedding on April 23 2017 as the bartending services I had contracted through One of a Kind Entertainment fell through (One of a Kind did not have the proper insurance to bartend legally in Texas and are definitely scamming people,... Read More do not use them!). Drink Slingers was fantastic and saved the day! Nannette was extremely professional and helpful in coordinating my bartending services. The bartender was friendly, fast and guests really liked him. I very much appreciate the professionalism and great service from Drink Slingers after a nightmare experience with One of a Kind!

I used Drink Slingers for my Wedding in February (I know...I'm late in the game with my review). But they were AMAZING!! I was in constant communication with Sadie, the owner, and she was extremely easy to get in contact with. She was very helpful with all my questions and... Read More even brought up ideas that I didn't even think of. She helped me come up with a grocery list of all the things I would need to get (since that's the service I chose) and just made it soo easy! The bartender that I requested was Justin. OMG! He was awesome! All of my guests loved him...the girls AND the guys included. He made the night fun for everyone and I'm not sure if the guests were headed back to the bar for drinks...or just for him! My friends and family still talk about how great he was. Overall, my experience with Drink Slingers was excellent and I would definitely recommend them to anyone.

Drink Slingers did an an incredible job keeping our guests happy and hydrated! They came prepared with their own decor and menu and had a laid back vibe that was exactly what we were looking for. Drink Slingers was professional yet fun, unique yet traditional, and I would... Read More definitely recommend them to any brides looking for quality, personalized service.

Nannette Taft & Sadie Smythe

Nannette Taft and Sadie Smythe met at a festival in 2015. They fell in love immediately and six months later started Drink Slingers. Both were in career transitions when they met and it just so happened that they were given an opportunity through a mentor to try their hand at event bartending. With Sadie's background in writing and event production and Nannette's background in international education, the two made the perfect complementary pair. They had discovered that they both derived deep satisfaction by contributing to people's most special days –weddings, birthday parties and other mea
