“We wouldn’t have another house party without hiring an event bar and cocktails staff. Our guests were blown away by the cocktail bar staff and really cool bar we hired, as well as the cocktail glassware.”
House Party Cocktail Bar & Bar Staff
Yvonne, South Dublin
“For our last house party, we hired beer keys and pre-batched cocktails which worked out really reasonable but were very impressive for our guests. It saved us a lot of work. People were able to serve themselves and be creative about how they served their own cocktails. It was well worth it. The kegs and cocktails were delivered and picked up afterwards so it was hassle free.”
