Top Shelf did an amazing job! They made it so we didn't have to worry about our bar at all - that's a huge deal! Their team was always super fast to respond to questions and were very accommodating to any special requests we had. Their flexibility and professionalism made the... Read More process very easy! At the wedding they made sure we had drinks while we were having dinner and making the rounds to greet our guests, as we were unable to get to the bar. They were very attentive! Our guests had nothing but great things to say about them as well! We would definitely recommend their services to anyone and plan to use them again, should we need bar services in the future!

The Top Self team ROCKED my wedding! They did an amazing job keeping everything going and there was never to long of a wait at the bar! They went out of their way to take care of an issue that happened at the bar and didn't bother us with it! They spoke with our wedding... Read More planner and did what we would have told them to do. I would say they were our TOP vendor at our wedding, so easy to work with and so accommodating! Would use them again for holiday functions or recommend them to friends when they get married. Don't waste your time by trying other companies, or think you'll save a tiny bit of money by getting your own booze. The week of you're wedding the less you have to worry about the better and after you meet with them you won't ever think about the bar again!

Top Shelf was absolutely fantastic to work with. While planning our wedding, we really had no idea what hiring a bartender would be like. However, through our entire year of planning, we worked with Bre in the office and adapted or changed our bar menu several times. She was... Read More a pleasure to communicate with every single time. She also had great ideas and her professional expertise and advice was very useful. (Trust me - when she makes a suggestion, it is based on experience - you should listen to her!) The day of the wedding, Tiffany arrived to bartend at our event. I can't explain enough how amazing she was! Everyone just loved her. She kept the lines down and handled everything so efficiently and wonderfully! We truly enjoyed sharing our day with her! Other vendors even commented on her skills. I cannot recommend Top Shelf enough. Not only is their service Top notch - they charge wholesale prices for alcohol since they also have a liquor store. I simply couldn't believe how affordable they were! Thank you to Top Shelf, Bre, and Tiffany for making our wedding reception such a wonderful event!!

Top Shelf Bartending was a phenomenal edition to our wedding this past weekend. They were so great with all of the guests and the wedding party was always a priority for them. I have heard multiple guests rave about the signature cocktails that we had (specifically the Mint... Read More Julep) and people were asking for the recipe. Honestly, Top Shelf was one of the best decisions that we made for vendors for our wedding. Their professionalism, flexibility and reliability was exceptional and I can't recommend them enough!

Are you trying to decide on a bartending company that is great & affordable? Top Shelf Bartending comes HIGHLY recommended by me!!! I was actually recommended by my venue to use Top Shelf & I am truly blessed that I was. They were super easy to work with, the staff was... Read More awesome! When I initially started looking, I asked them for advise; I asked what the difference was for me to do one or two bar locations (my venue was 2 levels). They were quick to let me know my savings or spending for doing such things. Top Shelf never tried to up-sell me into anything, in fact I felt like overall they helped me to save money!! Again, I highly recommend Top Shelf for any party - I would 100% use them again! THANK YOU TOP SHELF FOR BEING A PART OF MY WEDDING CELEBRATION!

I cannot recommend Top Shelf highly enough. Their bartenders are very professional, their customer service in the planning stages is excellent, and at the end of the day they will probably save you a good chunk of change. What do I mean? Well, first of all, their prices for all... Read More beverages are VERY reasonable. Secondly, any unopened bottles get returned and you are not charged for unopened alcohol. This is not the policy of many other bartending services and this can lead to significant savings at the end of an event (in my case around $500). TopShelf all the way.

Highly recommend working with Top Shelf for supplying liquor. Easy to work with while determining types and quantities of liquor needed. I liked that they expected some liquor to get returned and did not want us to run out. I received quotes from other vendors that were trying... Read More to determine the exact amount, but didn't like the increase risk of running out of anything. We did get low on some cups, but they were delivered before running out AND during a large rain storm.

We used top shelf because it was a preferred vendor at our event space. We chose to do an open bar because we had heard that since they also own a liquor store they buy back any unopened bottle or cases. My wife's family is not big drinkers and my family is hit or miss on... Read More drinking. At first I was not a fan with the invoice they gave me with the menu they provided. I kept emailing them asking questions and trying to reduce the numbers. The owner finally called me herself and talked to me and explained their method. I kept adding and subtracting things, they were super patient. In the end we only paid the 75% because there was some left over. The bartender was friendly and professional. I opted to just giving him $100 (required) instead of a tip jar but turns out he was still taking tips. Wasn't too happy about that. I would recommend the company for your event.
