I've had them wait staff and bartend two parties in the last year and am so glad I did. I was able to enjoy my event and spend time with my guests which I appreciate very much. Theresa is so reliable and effective at communicating but also takes initiative in ways that go above and beyond her duties!! Thank you for all that you do, your efforts and attention to detail don't go unnoticed :)

Theresa was absolutely amazing!! We had a wedding with about 120 people and everyone kept saying how good the bartenders were. Because we had 120 guests she had her other bartender, Jason, help her and was equally amazing!  Theresa was very professional, well organized and treated our guests like family. We served keg beer, wine and 2 signature cocktails (Moscow mules and old fashions). The most impressive part about our whole experience was Theresa's attention to detail. She thought of things I never would have dreamed of. She offered to freeze large ice cubes for the old fashions, had candied ginger for the Moscow mules and best of all she actually knew how to make good drinks!!! 

Oh and did I mention that she is also an artist?!? She made us bar menus that had all of our drinks in gorgeous designs on chalkboards. She makes me want to have another party so that I can have her be our bartender again haha.

I had a great experience with Happy Hopping Bartending! She was very responsive to the multiple requests by our venue. Her staff was very professional, and her bar set up was great! The infused water stations were very cute and fit in with our overall decor for our graduation event. I would definitely recommend Happy Hopping Bartending to others in the future!

The crew over at Happy Hoppy Bartending was great for our wedding. I didn't know what to expect having bought the alcohol ourselves through two different avenues. Immediately saw the bar and it looked great and only heard great feedback from all of our attendees! Thank you Theresa!
