What People Are Saying

We have used Shake Bartending for the past two years for our Corporate Events. They are Pros! Very accommodating & efficient, offering their creative input on specialty items customized to our party’s theme. I highly recommend their services, you won’t be disappointed!

—Jen W. (Bellevue, WA)

Shake Bartenders ran our bartending and food service at Facebook Seattle for more than 200 people. I recommend her to other non-profit orgs that need a dependable, competitively priced vendor to run major charity or fundraising events. Tara has a process down which added high-value to our event!

Shake Bartender's fabulous staff took such great care of all of our guests and exceeded our expectations!

I used Shake Bartenders for my 30th High School Reunion this summer on the recommendation from a friend. I worked with Tara for all the logistical aspects of our event and she was so easy to work with and quick to respond to all of my questions.
