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 chose Hey Bartender! for our wedding in May 8, 2015 which I found via this website. The ease of booking and communicating with them made planning so much less stressful. Their packages are suit different types of events and we were even able to add a specialty cocktail. Since my husband is British, we provided bottles of Pimm's and Christian, our bartender, served them up quickly and our guests loved it. He was a pleasure to have work for our wedding, and my husband spent a lot of time chatting with him! We were so happy with their service. So easy to work with!

I have to be honest, this was the most stressful company to work with. Chad was always quick to respond, but when I had questions, I felt like I was getting yelled at or talked down to. I NEVER talked to anyone on the phone. It was all through email. Having not talked to anyone via the phone, i was even nervous about if they would show up, but since they were our preferred bartender per our venue we had to go with them. On the day of the wedding we had a lot of issues with a bartender and some of her co-workers. She was heckling them for not tipping. The backstory of this is that my parents wanted to pay for the tip, but Chad had recommended doing the case tip for the bartenders because with a wedding of our size, they would have made a lot more money. So then on the day it was very disappointing to hear how the bartenders were handling the situation. On a positive note, they were very affordable, and we never ran out of alcohol and they had a good selection and were very accommodating when we switched types of wine and created a signature drink. But, just be careful, I wouldn't use them again. I only kept them for our wedding because we had to.

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.
