About Us

Hiring quality bartending to manage your reception or event is equally as important as the food service and decorations and allows you and your guests to spend your party hours socializing instead of catering to every empty glass.

We are licensed, experienced, professional bartenders versed in over 300 different cocktail recipes. Cocktail bartending events include wedding receptions, holiday/ birthday parties, corporate events and more. We staff skilled bartenders to meet the needs of any size party.

Our credentials include endorsements from the event managers at locations such as the Gig Harbor Yacht Club, LeMay Museum in Fife, Foss Waterway Seaport in Tacoma, Pioneer Park Pavilion in Puyallup, Thornwood Castle in Lakewood, plus many, many more.

Many catering companies offer bartending service and assign ‘someone’ to the task. Maybe you get a bartender who is a gem. Maybe not.
Why take the risk?
With Bartending by Mallard, you get dynamic, attractive, engaging personalities who know the business of successful bartending. You only get one try to make your party a success. Make certain that quality professionals handle your liquor service.

We strive to make every event special. From custom cocktail menus and signature cocktail drinks, all created in conjunction with your desires, to efficient, outstanding service that demonstrates a passion for what we do. Don't entrust your next party to just anyone! We offer true bartending skills plus accountability.

Quality of Service:

  • Value for Cost:
  • Flexibility:
  • You really do get what you pay for. The primary reason we decided on Bartending by Mallard was affordability. While their service did not negatively affect our wedding in any major way, we were not impressed. They were late and underdressed. They watched as my bridesmaids poured drinks into beverage dispensers (in their dresses!) and were generally minimally helpful. They displayed their business cards on our bar- I didn't notice until photos. The bartenders also tried to offer me and my groom marriage advise- yikes!
