"Scott was a pleasure to have in class and has since helped immensely with many private events.  He is by far one of the most reliable and punctual professional bartenders in the business.  Scott is truly a GREAT bartender, not only does he mix amazing cocktails, but he'll entertain and make ya laugh as well.  If you need a fun and outgoing bartender look no further.  TWO THUMBS WAY UP!!!!"
  Trevor- Owner, Bartending Academy of Tacoma

Thanks again, and I always tell people you would be my first call if I were looking for a bartender."

"Awesome is the only word to describe our experience with Scotty and his staff. From the first phone call I knew I wanted to Scotty to be responsible for the bar at our wedding; he was confident, laid back yet professional, funny, and extremely knowledgeable. Additionally, he was up front about our needs for a larger wedding, helped us prepare our shopping list, and answered our many questions. On the day of he was prompt and was ready to help get the party going when guest arrived at the Pioneer Park Pavilion and kept the party going throughout the night with some creative shots which myself, my father-in-law, former teammates, and many others took part in. Cheers to job perfectly done!"

"What can I say Scott,  AWESOME JOB!!! Scott was on time, knew what he was doing and kept everyone at the party happy.  I didn’t hear one complaint, and only compliments. Thanks for helping us make our party at the Tacoma Sportman's Club a huge success."

"Hey Scott, thanks so much for all your hard work making our event on Saturday a success. We really enjoyed your energy, enthusiasm, and outfits! I hope we get the chance to work together again!"

"Dinah was great! Professional and personable. My 4 year old daughter was drawn to her and hovered around her much of the time. There were less people than we thought, so I hope she made enough tips to make it worth her time. I'll be sure to write an awesome yelp review today. It went perfect, thanks for everything Scott!"
 Tara- Graham

 "Hi Scott, things went great!  Candy was wonderful and sweet.  I hope she enjoyed herself as well!  I believe she made a connection with the owners as well.  Thanks for all your help!"
 Holly- Seattle

"Hey there Scott.  It is over.  Everything went perfectly!  Your bartender did a great job…but I did not actually meet her until she was leaving…people were serving me drinks. But I have an older brother who is highly critical of bartenders (and frequents their services often) said that the bartender did a great job!  So next week, when our guests have left and I am more rested, I will write a wonderful review for your business. Send me the links of any particular places that you’d like reviews posted.
Take care and thank you so very much for all of your helpful, supportive, and fun pre communications!"
 Cynthia- Tacoma

"Dinah was superb. We wanted to let you know she went way beyond her duties cleaning glasses and improvising when we ran out of certain liquor. I will be publishing reviews for you on any place I can. Thank you!"
 Jamie- Tacoma

"Scott made our charity event at the LeMay Museum just perfect. He has such a fun and open personality and everyone enjoyed talking with him. His help was invaluable when coming up with the perfect drinks and figuring how much of everything we would need! We look forward to getting to work with him again!!"

 Philip and Lonee- Tacoma

"Scott, you were amazing at our wedding (3/5/11) out at Steilacoom Town Hall, and your ability and willingness to accomodate us on such short notice was GREATLY appreciated.  I could not have asked for a better professional/personality at our were great with our guests, your presentation was amazing, your drinks were so yummy, and you were so creative and great about working with me on a "menu", and all the while keeping a professional, by-the-book committment to guest control and liquor responsibility....I especially loved your collaboration with us for our signature drink :-)  Your price was amazing and unbeatable and you were so easy to work with and so hilarious as well, not to mention you were so great at keeping me sane and calm through the planning process with your great humor and your professional control and knowledge of the situation. Thank you for your hard work and relaxed and fun addition to our wedding reception....couldnt have asked for better!  We will DEFINITELY contact you again with ANY need for a bartender!"
 Anthony & Stacy- Tacoma

"Scott, the wedding was wonderful. Everything went very smoothly. It turned out to be everything we were hoping for. Dinah was exceptional! My list of things to do today included writing you an e-mail to thank you for sending her. She was fabulous I would recommend her over and over again. She was well organized. Handled the requests very well and had such a wonderful smile the whole time. You where spot on as far as the quantity and mix of wines. If you ever need a reference please do not hesitate to contact me.  Should I ever have need to hire bartending services again you will be the person I call. I will recommend you to anyone I hear who is planning an event of any kind."
  Mark- Orting

"Scott, I have to tell you how impressed we were with the service we received from JD. Both bartenders went above and beyond and so many people kept complimenting them all night long. I will be writing a very positive Yelp review on your business when I return from my honeymoon. We really think they made our wedding. Thank you so much!"
 Morgan- Lacey

"Scott, thank you to you and Stephanie for everything! Our wedding went so perfectly and everybody had a great time! Yes, we were able to find some help with the beer from our groomsmen. Thanks to you and your crew for being so professional and efficient! It was the best day and I know everyone enjoyed having a drink or two as well :)
Just wanted to say thank you and let you know that I appreciated you and your crew very much! Thanks!"
Sarah - Tacoma

"Scott and I communicated so much through email prior to my wedding (just this past weekend, Saturday 8/24/2013) that I feel as if I know him personally! He did such a professional job of answering my copious questions, making shopping lists for me, providing quantity estimates for liquor and ice, and seeing to details that a busy bride could easily miss. He sent Jeremy and Chris to work our event, and both guys were great. I had the opportunity to meet Jeremy ahead of time at another event 4 weeks prior but honestly it wasn't necessary. They show up ready to jump right in and don't require a lot of direction. They just go to the area you designate and set up. They were ready even before the wedding started so people milling around could enjoy a beverage before taking their seats. My bridal party and guests all thought they were so personable. The price is phenomenal, especially for the level of service they provide. Our venue requires you hire a professional bartender and I had never had one before, so I was apprehensive at first. But it was such a relief to have that completely taken of. And Scott is reassuring you every step of the way. I would definitely hire them again and would recommend them to anyone who needs a bartender for your event in the Puget Sound area. Even if you don't think you really need one, you'll be so glad you did! They were perfect and really helped our event run seamlessly and everything was wonderful! Thank you for ensuring our guests had a great time at our wedding, we just love hearing all the positive comments about how much everyone enjoyed themselves. From soup to nuts, from planning to clean up, Bartending by Mallard was excellent!"
