PBK Bartending

Can you take a punch?



  • What types of services do you offer?
    • Waitstaff: Set up tables and food stations before your guests arrive, serve and buss throughout the event, and help with the break-down and clean-up at the end of your event
    • Bartenders: help set up and organize your bar when they arrive, as well as advise you prior to or during the event. At the start of the event, they will expertly make whatever drinks you and your guests desire. At the conclusion of your event, our bartenders will also help break down and clean up the bar area before they leave
    • Barbacks: set up, buss, refill ice, restock the bar, replenish glassware, help to break down the bar, and take out the garbage
    • DJ: set up the DJ booth, play music to maintain the vibe of the event, act as an MC (if necessary), and break down the DJ area at the conclusion of the event
  • What parts of Southern California do you travel to?
    • PBK Bartending is based in West Los Angeles. We will travel within a 40-mile radius, without incurring a travel fee of $25.
