Simplify Your Celebration

    ​Standard alcoholic drinks include:

    Alcoholic drinks without any complicated requirements, some examples include:

    • Vodka Red Bull
    • Gin and Tonic
    • Alize’ and Lemonade
    • Beer opening
    • Wine and Champaign pouring

    We ensure that our Standard Bartenders arrive to your event 30 minutes prior to set-up and stay 30 minutes after to ensure the bartending section is left how we found it.

  • Cocktail Bartender

    Our Cocktail Bartender is a mixologist from our team who makes both standard alcoholic drinks and cocktails – based on your choice.

    ​If you already have the glasses and the alcohol and you just need to hire the skills, – The Sydney Mixologists offer you the possibility to hire a cocktail bartender for as long as you need.

    ​If you don’t have the alcohol nor glassware there’s no need to stress because The Sydney Mixologists are your helping hand where we give you the option of hiring glassware and providing the alcohol.

    We ensure that our Cocktail Bartenders arrive to your event 30 minutes prior to set-up and stay 30 minutes after to ensure the bar tending section is left how we found it.

  • Waiter/Waitress

    At The Sydney Mixologists we offer waiter/waitress hire to serve anything related to beverages.

    ​The benefit of having a waiter/waitress is that your guests are able to stand, sit, dance or be anywhere in your event while their drinks come to them which also ensures that there isn’t a queue at the bar.

    You also have the option of hiring our waiter or waitress separately for food service.

    ​You can rest assured knowing that our waiter/waitress will give yourself and your guests an experience that will not be forgotten.

  • Bar-back

    Our bar-backs provide assistance to our bartenders. The Sydney Mixologists have ensured that their bar-backs work efficiently behind the scenes to keep the bar running smoothly without anyone noticing they are even there.

    Having a bar-back at your event ensures that the bar is fully equipped with drinks, cups, ice etc all night long, leaving the bartender to solely focus on providing, creating and serving drinks to your guests.

    ​If you are hiring glassware from The Sydney Mixologist  then our bar-back is also able to wash the glassware throughout the night which ensures you aren’t hiring high quantities of glassware which ultimately benefits you.
