About Bartending by Mallard

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.

My hero! - An Eventective User from Graham, WA

Scotty saved us when our bartender bailed about 2 weeks before our wedding. He was affordable, reliable, professional and a great personality. His drinks were amazing and his repertoire was skilled. He even helped us create a signature drink for our wedding. Over the few weeks we spoke before our wedding, he was great about talking me down from my nerves and I would HIGHLY recommend him to ANYONE needing a bartender for ANYTHING. I pointed him to where he was gonna be and he did everything and cleaned up as if he had never been there! LOVED SCOTT MALLARD AND HIS BARTENDING! Thanks Scott!

Great Surprise Party! - An Eventective User from Gig Harbor

Scotty did a great job tending bar at the surprise party I threw for my husband last weekend. He is a true professional. . . and so much fun! He worked with me before the party to ensure we had everything necessary, always quick to respond to a phone call or email. Having him tend bar at the party allowed me to attend to the food and actually enjoy my guests! With his help, the party was a total success. We wouldn't hesitate to call on his excellent services again. Sue- Gig Harbor

Awesome bartending! - An Eventective User from Puyallup

Awesome is the only word to describe our experience with Scotty and his staff. From the first phone call I knew I wanted to Scotty to be responsible for the bar at our wedding; he was confident, laid back yet professional, funny, and extremely knowledgeable. Additionally, he was up front about our needs for a larger wedding, helped us prepare our shopping list, and answered our many questions. On the day of he was prompt and was ready to help get the party going when guest arrived at the Pioneer Park Pavilion and kept the party going throughout the night with some creative shots which myself, my father-in-law, former teammates, and many others took part in. Cheers to job perfectly done!" Emily- Puyallup
