client reviews


Macaila Schlaff

“I cannot say enough wonderful things about The Bartending Company. The service, the staff, and the cocktails were incredible and exceeded our expectations. The team went above and beyond and I will 100% be using them for all my future events!”

Jacob Cooke

“Such a fun experience! Roman went above and beyond for us. The cocktails were all made with fresh ingredients and were delicious. Would love to do it again!”

Lauren & Nick

“The Bartending Company went above and beyond to make sure every little detail was covered... Our bartender, Roman, even took the time to coordinate his outfit to complement our wedding colors. For anyone who has planned their own wedding, you know the incredible value of working with a vendor who cares just as much about the minute details of your big day as you do. Roman was a total class act --professional and organized, with a genuine and easy-going demeanor that created an authentic experience for our guests. If you're in need of bartending services for your wedding or event, look no further than The Bartending Company!”

Ashley Collins

“I booked Roman for a cocktail class at a bachelorette party this past weekend. He went above and beyond and far exceeded my expectations! He brought everything necessary and was very detailed and informative in the class. We had SUCH a good time and could not have asked for anything better! This company is a MUST for whatever party/event that you are planning! If I am ever back in the traverse city area I will absolutely be using them again!! Thanks Roman!!!”
