Ohio Bartenders for Hire has been providing exceptional bartending services for the past four years, creating specialty signature cocktails with and without alcohol for any event. All of their bartenders are certified and highly trained with the ability to create and safely serve hundreds of different cocktails for any special occasion, including “mocktails.” These are festive nonalcoholic drinks that are a mixture of fruit, juices, herbs, and sodas that are combined in the right ratios to provide a delicious flavor that all ages can enjoy. Ohio Bartenders for Hire carries liquor liability insurance for all of their bartenders. They are able to assist the hosts regarding the volume of supplies they will need to purchase and are able to recommend cost-effective sources for their needs. They also offer packages including cups, straws, beverage napkins, ice, mixers, garnishes, troughs, coolers, and more, so the host does not have to worry about running out or over buying for their event.

Ohio Bartenders for Hire loves to help create a successful and carefree affair in order for the host to enjoy the event as much as the guests. What sets them apart from other businesses is the training their employees must complete prior to starting their position. All of their bartenders have completed a 40-hour class through Columbus Bartending School and received a certification. Also, the bartenders are TIPS certified so they know how to serve alcohol responsibly in order for the hosts and their guests to have the best experience possible.

Meet Vanessa Long

Vanessa Long is the owner of Ohio Bartenders for Hire, and she has been in the industry for over 20 years. She started as a busser at a private Yacht Club when she was just 16 years old and worked her way up. Shortly after, Vanessa decided to go to school to become a certified paralegal and worked in a prominent Columbus, Ohio criminal defense firm for 10 years while continuing to work in the restaurant industry at the same time. Aside from work, Vanessa loves crafting, scrapbooking, and helping her mother sew items for craft shows. She also enjoys doing family fitness with her husband and three children. They recently added running to their strength training routine last year and even completed two 5k’s as a family.

There are many reasons why Vanessa loves working in the wedding industry, but the satisfaction of helping an excited couple fulfill the vision for their special day is her top reason. Her advice to engaged couples is to always hire a bartender even if you were planning on self serve such as bottled beer in a trough. Her reason is an experienced bartender can spot when someone has consumed too much. They can use their experience and training to discreetly cut someone off which saves the host from having to deal with embarrassment or conflict during the event. Bartenders can also take care of other issues, such as making sure that no minors are being served.
