Hey, Bartender! carries on my family’s traditional love of the restaurant and hospitality business.
My father owned restaurants, bars, a pizza joint, and even a disco back in Michigan in the late 70’s. My brother & I started working in the business well before we could drive and continued all the way through college when I met my wife while she was a Bartender too. After earning our degrees from Arizona State University I spent several years running a local brewpub/microbrewery. I tried to leave for the “professional” world but couldn’t resist the temptation to eventually start my own business doing what I knew best.
We hope to make you as happy with that decision as we are!

We have slowly added top notch Bartenders to our team over the years and have earned a loyal clientèle and a great reputation here in the valley. We are not the biggest, but we believe we just might be the best! Our clients come back to us again and again because our relationships with them are strong and they know we care enough about them to never let them down. We look forward to earning your business for years to come. Thanks for checking out our site, please refer us with confidence to anyone looking for the only bartending service they will ever need for all their residential and commercial events.

We have done black-tie to blue-collar, serving parties ranging in size from 6 to 600 and above. Whether the party is for you and your family in your own home or for hundreds of guests in a corporate setting we see each interaction with your guests as an opportunity to make you look good and make them our future clients! Cheers, Chad & Jessica Zaneis Read less

We paid a $500 tip for two bartenders to handle our 225 person wedding so our guests would not have to tip. I spoke to the owner of Hey Bartender - Chad - specifically about this - `NO TIPPING - I WILL PAY A $500 GENEROUS TIP. I personally spoke to both bartenders before the wedding began NO TIPPING ALLOWED - I AM PAYING $500 FOR YOUR TIP. In the few days that followed, guests told me they asked the bartenders where the tip jar was and the bartender said it's behind the bar over here. They then hustled my guests for tips throughout the night and then took my $500 at the end of the night. VERY UNETHICAL. In addition, they were not set up properly by the time the wedding began. The lines for drinks were unacceptably long for the first hour and 1/2, due to their poor preparation. They provided poor service, a bad attitude from one of the bartenders and they essentially stole from my guests...and me. Do not use Hey Bartender. I told the wedding venue that hired them as part of our wedding package about what had happened and that I wanted my $500 tip back, since they double dipped, and of course Hey Bartender refused. Find someone else.

Our wedding venue only had one option for bartenders and that was Hey Bartender. The entire time planning our wedding, we made it perfectly clear that we didn't want to have a tip jar and that the bartenders would get a great tip after, we went completely out of our way to find out a great tip to give them. The day after the wedding, we found out from a guest that they did have a tip jar but it was behind the bar, so we wouldn't see it. They were accepting tips from our guests and they should of never took tips from people or told us they were getting tips and not accepted our tip at the end of the night. It was so completely unprofessional and so unethical. We tipped them and then they kept their tips, they got two huge tips. We asked for the tip we gave them back and they wouldn't give it back. My biggest regret is having Hey Bartender as our bar service. We tried so hard to make our wedding nice for our guests and I feel like they took some of that away from us.

They were also unhelpful recommending a "signature drink". We talked with one of the bartenders before the wedding and they suggested a glass of champagne. The only reason that was suggested because that's super easy for them to do.

Chad at Hey Bartender! was very responsive and extremely helpful with any questions I had. I had to change quite a few things around with my event and Hey Bartender! was very flexible and willing to work with what we had going on. The 2 bartenders who were at my wedding were great. They were having fun with my guests and making sure everyone was happy! I would definitely use them again with any event I plan.

I used Hey, Bartender! for my wedding this past weekend, and I cannot recommend them enough!

First, the price is great and the deposit to hold your date is very minimal. We initially thought we would just want to buy our own alcohol and have someone serve it, but Hey, Bartender! had extremely reasonable prices for their open bar packages that include beer, wine, and liquor, especially since it included all mixers, ice, garnishes, cups, etc. They also had packages for every budget. They offer to serve your own alcohol, beer and wine only packages, all the way up to top-shelf liquor packages. Plus, they are fully licensed and insured.

Second, they are incredibly responsive. From the time I submitted info for a quote, to the week before the wedding, they responded to every email within a few hours.

Most importantly, the bartender we had rocked! He was timely, super friendly, and quick at serving up drinks. I had several guests compliment our bartender. He even came up to my husband and I after we arrived at the reception to get our drink order since we were being swamped by guests trying to say "hi."

After we booked Hey, Bartender!, I realized I had been to two other events they worked at. The bartenders at those events were top-notch as well.

If you are having any kind of event where you might need a bartender, stop looking and go call Hey, Bartender!

Hey Bartender! Bartending Services responded with the following comments:

Alissa you rock! Thanks so much for the great review. It was, of course, our pleasure to be of service. Our Bartender, Christian, said you guys were a great crowd as well and that everyone was super-cool, friendly and they all had a great time. Ultimately its your friends and family that make a wedding memorable, we are just glad to play a small role in it. Happy that it all came together as I know you had a few hurdles at the last minute. And I love hearing that you have run into our Bartenders at a few other events. We get around ... in a good way ;)


Thanks for helping spread the word about our services and taking time out of your busy schedule as a new bride to write the great review!

Cheers,

Chad Zaneis

5's across the board - they were professional, easy to work with, willing to work with our needs/special requests, and our bartender was a hoot! He made friends with almost everyone at the wedding and learned their drinks quickly. We could not have been happier with them and would definitely recommend them and use them again for any event!

Working with Chad was one of the easiest parts of planning our wedding! He was quick to respond, accommodating, and it only took a few emails to complete everything! The bartenders that did our wedding were well received by all and absolutely perfect for our venue! I love that this company is not only professional and detailed oriented but super affordable and allowed us to have the Wedding/Reception/Bar we always dreamed of! Everything is included which makes planning super easy and stress free...the hardest part was picking the types of beer...Haha! Thank you so much to Chad and the bartenders for everything! Look no further...this is the company to book (and they book up quickly...so don't delay)!!!

Chad was wonderful to work with and extremely flexible leading up to the day of. He helped me through the process of getting the exact package I wanted and answered all of my questions. I think that the service was a good value. However, I was told by several of my guests that our bartender was rude. Unfortunately, I did not here many good things about the service that he provided. In fact, I heard the exact opposite. My guests were actually put off by how he treated them. I would still recommend Hey Bartender because of the service I received up to the day of. However, I would suggest a little work on the customer service offered by the actual bartender.

Although they did a good job with everything, it was upsetting when i found out the bartender removed all the decorated bottles from the tables cut them off and threw them away without letting me know. Memories from a big event are important and should be kept.
