About Us


Benefits of having Mallard bartend your party:
  Hiring quality bartending for your private event will allow you and your guests to spend your party hours socializing instead of catering to every empty glass.
 Our credentials include endorsements from the event managers at popular locations including the Pioneer Park Pavilion in Puyallup, Gig Harbor Yacht Club, Foss Waterway Seaport Museum in Tacoma, Point Defiance Pagoda, Thornwood Castle in Lakewood, plus many, many more. (Full listing)

What We Do:
   We are licensed, certified, experienced bartenders well versed in more than 300 different cocktail recipes. One bartender can efficiently, single-handedly, serve crowds of up to 100 guests and we staff equally skilled bartenders to meet the needs of larger parties. For your upcoming party, reception or event, we will create original, tasty cocktails, generate a positive, safe, atmosphere to keep the party flowing and clean up the bar service area afterward. All unique and special requests will be accommodated.
 Visit our bartenders referrals page for reviews from past clients.

What to Expect:
  I will coordinate with you beforehand regarding the types and amounts of alcohol you will need to make certain all your guests are accommodated yet avoid over-purchasing of liquor and other unneeded expenses. We will also discuss possible drink ideas that may enhance the theme or flavor of your event. I can offer up options for themes if you're looking for some signature cocktail ideas for your party. We will cover all items in detail to make certain nothing gets overlooked in planning your gathering. I do not supply or resell liquor but will work with you in a cash bar setting.
Whether your event is wedding reception formal, deck party casual, birthday party wild, costume mandatory or fundraising event, I am prepared with all of the necessary skills and tools for each unique occasion.

What it Costs:
We serve the greater Tacoma/ Gig Harbor/ Pierce, Thurston & King County areas.
Our rate is $25.00 per hour + tips. (4-hour minimum)
Any pre-party coordinating is complimentary.
(Special notes regarding liquor liability)
