What services / supplies do you provide?
We are a full-service mobile bartending company, which means we provide everything needed to provide bartending services to your event from beginning to end. If you need it, we'll help you decide how much alcohol to budget for, where to buy it (we can do the shopping or you bring your own), the best drinks to serve, design your signature drink, even do all the shopping so you don't have to lift a finger (or forget to bring the ice)! On the day of your event, we'll bring and set-up our own a bar table, have all the standard -and not-so-standard bartending tools at hand, fill and maintain tubs or coolers to chill your beverages (we'll bring those, too!), even decorate the bar with our own decor or yours - it's up to you. We're here to make your life easier.
How much do you charge?
We are an independent business that operates on the passion to make your event amazing. Every event is unique, so please get in touch with us for a quote. We typically charge by the hour and are competatively priced and flexible. We work with your budget to help provide a great service. We can also work on an event fee, based on the circumstance.
Do you have any reviews or referrals?
Yes! You can find our reviews and referrals on both our website and our facebook page.
How much beer or wine should I buy for my event?
Rule #1 is that too much is better than not enough!
That being said, keep in mind that most people will drink 1 glass per hour. For wine, 1 bottle = 4 or 5 glasses. For beer, a glass is a bottle or a pint (1 keg = 124 pints). By knowing your guest count and if they are generally more of a wine or beer drinking crowd, you should be able to quickly use this formula to guide your purchasing. But remember - always default to rule #1! And don't forget that Spectrum Event Services is more than happy to help you put together a comprehensive shopping list for your specific event, too. Just ask!
Do you provide alcohol?
As a way to keep our fees affordable, we do not keep a stock of alcohol. However, we provide consultation to help you choose the right amount for your budget and help create cocktail lists for your event. For a fee we can purchase alcohol and other supplies for you. We are also partnered with local wineries and can provide wine by the keg.
Can you recommend any vendors for our wedding/event?
Absolutely! See our ever-growing list of recommended vendors here:
Where do I get a temporary banquet permit?
The state of Washington requires you to have a temporary banquet permit to serve alcohol at a private function. You can buy permits from the Washington State Liquor & Cannabis Board.
