“What I love about these guys is that they don't just show up and serve drinks. They really embodied the spirit of my unique business, The FOMO Factory, and played with our customers, took on nicknames, and blended in with the team. Nannette was super helpful with my bajillion questions. I worked with Rose and Erik and both of them were ridiculously good looking, crazy stylish, and just really enjoyable people to have around.” ~ Rachel Y., corporate client
“Rose and Justin were AMAZING. The entire experience with Drink Slingers was fantastic from beginning to end. Sadie is so knowledgeable and helpful in every aspect of the planning process. I honestly saw 50 dollar bills in the tip jars, everyone was so impressed with how professional and fun our bartenders were. Truly I couldn’t recommend anyone better than Drink Slingers.” ~ Alexandra K., bride
“We hired Drink Slingers for our small wedding and could not have asked for a better experience! Sadie was quick to respond to our communications, offered excellent advice and knowledge about what kind of menu options we should offer, and gave us a lot of freedom to personalize our cocktail and beer menu. Even though SXSW was going on during a chunk of our planning period and Drink Slingers was slammed with events, we never once felt that we weren't a priority. Moreover, the service at the wedding itself was outstanding! Drink Slingers did an excellent job setting up a small, clean, well-decorated bar area with nice decorations and lighting. Our ceremony and reception were Lord of the Rings-themed, and our bartender Nicole went out of her way to dress up-- even though she totally didn't have to! She did an amazing job mixing the themed cocktails, we had lovingly tailored for the occasion, and all our guests commented on how friendly and professional she was. We were touched when Drink Slingers reached out to us in the days after the wedding to tell us personally how much they enjoyed working with us and how lovely our wedding had been. From start to finish, Drink Slingers was an attentive, efficient, and stress-free experience that I would recommend to any bride or anyone throwing a large event. Thank you again Sadie & Nicole for your help in making our wedding perfect in every way! 10/10 !" ~ Lauren, bride
"Sadie is the absolute best when it comes to planning a drink menu for a reception. My now-husband and I were married on March 25th, 2018, and while we never met Sadie in person, she was incredibly helpful in our planning process. We handled a majority of the plans for our wedding on our own, and had never held an event for 100+ people before. When we decided that we wanted to serve beer and wine only at our reception, we had absolutely no idea how to calculate how much we would need to purchase. Sadie was remarkably helpful and provided us with a list of what we should shop for - and as a result, the money we had budgeted toward our drinks turned out to be significantly higher than what we actually needed, and without Sadie's help we would have spent money we didn't need to.
Our bartenders were Justin and Rose, and their service was top notch throughout the night. They were personable, friendly, and quick! We also received so many compliments from our guests about their service. We would recommend Drink Slingers time and time again." – Marissa, bride
"Nannette and her staff are professional, hard-working and reliable. They are great to work with, interface amicably with guests and have a classy set-up with nice extra touches (subtle lighting, candle, small plant). They are fantastic for both small and large events. Thank you for going the extra mile, Nannette! " – Jen B., coordinator
"Words can not describe how AMAZING this company is. I had a client with particular requests regarding the drink menu. Nanette personally walked me through my choices and set up a shopping list tailored to the events needs. She made it so EASY. Nanette personally worked the event and oversaw every aspect of the bar from cup wear to ice delivery. Her staff was friendly and funny and all had great personalities. Before the event there was a MAJOR crisis involving the alcohol being delivered. She stayed calm, kept me calm and handled the situation like a boss. Her staff DROVE out to the store and picked up the kegs and liquor. While there we encountered more problems regarding the card being used for payment. Once again she made it happen ! She had the place set up and ready to go as if nothing had happened. The guests absolutely LOVED and raved about the entire drink slingers group. I am using this company EVERY time in the future. They are truly a cut above all the rest. Regardless of your event you HAVE to hire them because they will make it such a memorable occasion." – Steven D., planner
"Drink Slingers is the best! Brian was incredible. All our guest kept saying what a joy he was. All we had to do was buy the alcohol and they did the rest. It was so affordable and my husband James and I loved the service. We got married on 10.01.2017 at The Sanctuary. It was perfect and the staff at Drink Slingers were so incredibly helpful. Thanks y’all! Xoxoxox! " – James & Mikey, grooms
"Thank you for a wonderful event planning and execution for our twins 25th birthday party. Erik was the perfect Slinger— polite, hip, chill and accommodating. The birthday celebrants and their posse had an amazing evening. It was perfect. Love your ala carte service approach. Very satisfied and highly recommend!!!" – Susan P.
"Drink Slingers helped us with both our rehearsal dinner and wedding celebration. They were great! Sadie was a huge help during the planning phase and was always very responsive. The "bartenders" (truly mixologists) made fabulous cocktails with a friendly smile to go with it. They were also professional and respectful to our guests. We highly recommend their services, and thank them for playing a key role in making our weekend so fun and special!" – Brooke B, bride
"Drink Slingers was so easy to work with during the planning and execution of our rehearsal dinner. We ended up adding on more services closer to the event date, and they were super flexible updating the contract, etc. We hired one bartender to serve beer and margaritas at our rehearsal dinner and everyone raved about how great the bartender was. We will always recommend Drink Slingers to friends and plan to use them again for more functions. Thank you!" – Miranda R., bride
"I used Drink Slingers for my Wedding in February. They were AMAZING!! I was in constant communication with Sadie, the owner, and she was extremely easy to get in contact with. She was very helpful with all my questions and even brought up ideas that I didn't even think of. She helped me come up with a grocery list of all the things I would need to get and just made it soo easy! The bartender that I requested was Justin. OMG! He was awesome! All of my guests loved him ... the girls AND the guys included. He made the night fun for everyone and I'm not sure if the guests were headed back to the bar for drinks or just for him! My friends and family still talk about how great he was. Overall, my experience with Drink Slingers was excellent and I would definitely recommend them to anyone." – Erick M, groom
"Rose is freakin' awesome! Seriously, we hope she never goes away because we can't have these parties without her. When it was her scheduled time to leave, the entire party became heartbroken and she agreed to stay on one more hour. She is a great bartender and a very cool person and we will be looking to DrinkSlingers again next year to bring Rose back. The whole process of hiring DrinkSlingers is so easy. Nannette was super helpful, super nice and extremely responsive. We will continue to share our wonderful DrinkSlingers experience with all our friends and family."
"Sadie was absolutely wonderful. So accommodating and willing to answer any and all questions. Regardless of how ridiculous they were and how frequently they were asked. Our bartenders were kind and so helpful throughout. My now-husband kept saying how he felt they were having fun, too, which was wonderful. They were truly a part of the party! We would hire Drink Slingers again in an instant!" – Emilie R, bride
"Words can not express enough my Thanks & Gratitude to this company, and particular Praise to Sadie for all her help and support in the planning of my daughters wedding. I was doing this long distance and had no idea about the company but loved their website and their fast & professional responses to inquiries. They make it easy & fun! I would highly recommend them, & hope that our paths cross again someday." –KW, Mother of the bride
"These guys and gals are the best. They're professional, friendly, accommodating, and very timely in the planning process. They helped us with our wedding and it was a wonderful experience across the board. They'll come up with a custom menu, bring all the necessary supplies as needed, and help you host the perfect event. If I could write in 6 stars, I would. Don't get caught up in the cheaper options, you will not regret spending a little bit more for real professionals like those at Drink Slingers. " – Tyler O, Father of the bride
"We hired Drink Slingers to provide bar services for my daughter's wedding at The Sanctuary in Austin and it was a real pleasure working with Sadie to plan the event. She was responsive to my questions and gave me great suggestions. She was a dream!
My daughter had a small brunch wedding and we served mimosa's; Kristi, the bartender was exceptional and so very nice! Everyone loved her and commented on how wonderful she was and that she served tasty drinks! I really appreciate Sadie and Kristi at Drink Slingers and would absolutely recommend them!" – Doreen F, Mother of the bride
"We used Drink Slingers for a fundraising happy hour for our kids' elementary school, and they were amazing. Sadie, the owner, promptly responded to my inquiry with a detailed quote. I was able to book the next day. Sadie was responsive, organized, professional, and friendly. She talked with us to determine exactly what our vision was and made suggestions when we weren't sure about something or hadn't thought about something. Once we had decided on our menu and vision for the evening, she sent us a detailed shopping list and checked in with us a couple of times to be sure we were able to find everything and to let us know details about the evening and who our bartender would be.
Our bartender was Justin, and he was awesome! He was prompt, professional, and friendly. He chatted with us before the party and checked in with us several times throughout the party to be sure we were happy with everything. The setup looked amazing, and we especially liked the menu! Several of the guests approached up and told us how friendly Justin was, and they took cards to use Drink Slingers in the future. When it was time to shut down, Justin set drinks up for us in the kitchen so we could continue the party with the remaining guests and cleaned everything perfectly. We could not have been happier with Drink Slingers and with Justin." – Teresa W.
"Sadie was amazing at helping us plan and prepare for our wedding reception. We had absolutely no idea what we were doing with getting our drink menu prepared and she made the process SO easy and efficient. Rose and Justin were excellent at our reception, and several of our guests commented with praise on their service. Thank you so much!" – Marissa H., bride
"We had an wedding reception on April 2, 2016, and these folks were just terrific. They worked with us before the event to make sure we had the right 'mix' of drinks (see what I did there?) and supplies. On the day of the event, they just flat out 'owned it.' The team was 1) efficient 2) hard working 3) exceedingly friendly and pleasant (so said all who interacted with them) 4) and most importantly, allowed me to fully relax and attend the the guests.
I also appreciated how, as the father of the bride, they let me cut the line just a tad. While not everyone will write a review, I can also assert that every one of our guests I have spoken with had nothing but great things to say about the 'Slingers.' These Slingers will remain the only servers in my phone, and on speed dial to boot. Do yourself a favor and hire these people and then go worry about something else, because you will not be worrying about them.
Thanks again, Drink Slingers, for helping to make our festivity so enjoyable for me and all our guests!" – Rick Williams
"I hired Drink Slingers for my wedding on October 16th, which had a guest count of about 90 people. Sadie was highly involved and communicated fluidly with me in the weeks prior to the event, addressing any concern or question I had. She also made suggestions for my bar shopping list, which really helped. The bartenders were charming and professional, and the bar was absolutely beautiful when it was set up. There were never any long lines throughout the night at the bar, every detail related to the cocktails was perfect. My husband and I received many compliments on our choice for using Drink Slingers -- several of my guests inquired who my bar service was and took home Drink Slingers business cards. If you desire a stylish, charming and professional bar service, look no further than Drink Slingers. Two big thumbs up!" – Natalie H, Bride
"Thank you, Drink Slingers, for partnering with WeddingWire for Sunday's Garden Party! Brad couldn't have been more professional or personable; truly the perfect person to tend bar. We saw 115 guests during the event, and it wouldn't have been such a success without your team's hard work!" – Jamie D'Orso, WeddingWire
"Our event at turned out great and Justin was terrific to work with. As was Nannette, behind the scenes with planning and prepping. The little plants and votive candles are a subtle but noticeable and classy touch. I'm always impressed working with the "Slingers" and look forward to the next time." – Jen, a repeat client
"When I found out that the caterer for my daughter's wedding could not provide bartenders I panicked! Nannette and Drink Slingers to the rescue! Their performance was outstanding: from the email and telephone response, to the decorations on the bar, to the complete services they provide, to the efficient and kind staff. I can not begin to describe the superiority of their work. Planning a wedding from 2,000 miles away can be a challenge but Nannette made it very easy. They were a pleasure to work with. If you need a bartender in Austin, at any venue, for any event, call Drink Slingers first. You will not be disappointed." – Janet W., mother of the bride
"I love Drink Slingers! Sadie and her team provide exceptional service. From start to finish, the entire process was handled with extreme professionalism and ease. The shopping list that Sadie provided was a life saver. Such a great perk! Annick, our bartender, was wonderful. She provided excellent service and was so much fun to work with. Her bar set-up was very festive and classy. Can't say enough about Drink Slingers. I will definitely be booking them again for my next event!" – Rebecca M.
"Sadie was very professional and friendly while serving at our wedding. She made the outdoor space look even better than it already did with her string lights and tasteful decorations. Since our venue was a location she had not worked at previously she met me a few weeks before our wedding to get a feel for the layout and amenities. She asked lots of great questions, most of which I wouldn't have even thought of, in order to get a good idea of what I had in mind. We had wanted a champagne toast before going in to the reception hall and she found the perfect spot to set up her tray with the champagne flutes and even suggested that we buy some sparkling grape juice so the several kids in attendance wouldn't feel left out. I thought that was really thoughtful! Sadie emailed me a shopping list and helped us figure out how much to buy of each thing that we were planning to serve. She handled the ice, limes, salt, etc. Everything went off without a hitch! I couldn't have been happier with how it all turned out and I will definitely invite Sadie to serve at our next event." - Sally R.
"Nannette and Sadie were great to work with! They were very detailed with their questions beforehand so that on the day of our wedding they were prepared and ready to go. We really enjoyed working with them and received many compliments on how kind, professional, and courteous our bartenders were. They handled our crowd so well and we appreciated everything they did to keep us and our guests happy! Thanks guys!" – Neesha T.
"Drink Slingers did a great job with our office party! Thanks to Drink Slingers we were very prepared leading up to the event with all of Nannette's help. Our bartender's name was Brad and he was great! As soon as he arrived he went to work and made everything perfect. He was kind, laid back, and was a great addition to our office environment for the afternoon." – Donald M.
"Everything was beyond my expectations— from the set up to the friendliness off our bartender, and not to mention the fantastic drinks!" – Jessica T., bachelorette
"As I prepared to host a party for around 40 people in my home, I quickly realized I needed help. Enter Sadie with Drink Slingers. Sadie met with me in advance to learn about my guests and what my vision of a successful event looked like. She also created a shopping list and responded promptly to questions I had as the event neared.
On the day of the party, Sadie arrived early and set up a beautiful drink station that helped create an inviting and fun atmosphere that exceeded my expectations. She was professional, fun, easy to work with, and I HIGHLY recommend Drink Slingers to anyone hosting an event large or small." – Jamie B.
"Nannette Taft was so attentive in the planning process. She was professional, enthusiastic, and cares about the success of your event. Nannette and Sadie were amazing for our 50th birthday party in our home with 90 guests. Their set up is festive and tastefully done. I would highly recommend Drink Slingers!" – Linda C.
"Nannette was awesome and super professional. She came in with everything required to make a great setup. She was on time and on point. I would highly recommend Drink Slingers for any of your upcoming events!" – Allison B.
