 Drink Slingers Austin Event Bartenders Nannette & Sadie

Nannette Taft and Sadie Smythe met at a festival in 2014. They fell in love immediately and six months later started Drink Slingers.

Both were in career transitions when they met and it just so happened that they were given an opportunity through a mentor to try their hand at event bartending. With Sadie's background in writing and event production and Nannette's background in international education, the two made the perfect complementary pair.

They had discovered that they both derived satisfaction from contributing to people's most special days – weddings, birthday parties and other meaningful celebrations – by imbuing the spirit of the celebration from behind the bar. As the company grows, so too does the bartender roster. But Nannette and Sadie are resolute in hiring only those who can uphold Drink Slingers' credo (borrowed from Maya Angelou) – "People will never forget how you made them feel". Because after all, it is love that makes everything go 'round.
