ALCOHOL CATERING IN HOUSTON, TX

EVENT BARTENDING-ONLY OR AN ALCOHOL CATERING?

You have the choice of a complete Do-It-Yourself execution of the alcohol-related tasks including the ordering and delivering all the alcohol, mixers (sodas & juices), ice, cups, as well as transporting everything home at the end of the event. You hire a bartender to simply bartend the event.

Or…

You can hire a TABC licensed alcohol catering company to not only bartend your event, but to provide a complete professional turn-key solution.

Either way, Bartending2U can be your bartending-only provider or your complete alcohol caterer. We appreciate the opportunity to quote our services to meet your specific needs for your next event.
