Pro Bartender FAQ

What types of gigs to you do?

Throughout my career, I have enjoyed bartending at a wider variety of events than you can even imagine! With over 35 years of experience, my seasoned skillset and confidence enables me to be a great bartender. You can rely on my professionalism to host your bar.

The following are just a few examples of the types of events I have provided bartending services for: stag and does, weddings, anniversaries, dinner parties, birthdays, Christmas parties, New Year's Eve celebrations, graduations, retirement parties, engagement parties, and awards ceremonies. 

How do you charge?

Each bartending gig is as unique as the guests we host. I base my pricing on the complexity of the bar menu being offered to guests, the number of guests, and how many hours you require services at your event. I can work with a set budget to help you bring your party to life. Please note: 4 hours of required service and 10 guests are the minimum requirements for my services. For more information, please contact me, using the form below.

What areas of town do you work?

We serve in and within close proximity of the Ottawa area, including Gatineau, Orleans, Kanata, Barrhaven, Stittsville, and other surrounding areas.  I'm also available to travel to Montreal for the right types of events! Please inquire for more information.

What supplies do I need to prepare?

Probartenders will provide you with a list of supplies you need for your event. The list is based on the bar menu you choose. 

How do I get a quote?

Obtaining a quote is easy! Just fill out the form below to get in touch with me. There are no fees for a bartending estimate or obligation to hire me. 

What payment methods do you accept?

I accept cash, etransfer, or money order.  There is a 25% deposit at the time of booking in order to reserve your date. If you cancel within 14 days prior to the event your deposit will not be returned to you. Any cancellations prior to the two-week mark, deposits will be refunded. All balances are due 14 days prior to the event.

What types of drinks do you make?

I make all sorts of drinks! Anything from margaritas, sangrias, daiquiris, pina coladas, shooters, shaken and stirred drinks, bellinis, caesar cocktails, mojitos, and more. And if alcohol isn't your thing, I can make an amazing Shirley Temple/Buck Rogers.

Have a favourite? Email me to find out if I can make it. Are your guests adventurous? I can work with you to create a themed party drink just for you! We can even name it after the guest of honour.

Do you do set up and clean up?

Yes of course! I understand you may be busy with getting yourself ready, the event ready or greeting your guests. You can be assured that I will arrive a minimum of two hours before the party starts to get the bar set up. We can provide clean up and close up services as well.

Why is it called a BAR?

I sometimes get asked this by guests after a few rounds. I like to tell guests that BAR is actually an acronym, and stands for Beer Alcohol Room! Your mind is blown right?!

❤️ from Past Guests

Pro Bartenders was an excellent choice to hire as bartenders for our marriage party. Dan responded right away and gave me all the information I needed in a call the following day. Very clear, unlike other Ottawa options. I wanted to make sure the bartender we hired was gay friendly, and they delivered! We gave Dan the main signature cocktail and he gave suggestions for the rest of the menu, and a list of what else we needed. Our bartender, Joel, was excellent and professional. He checked in with me regularly during the evening which was great. I'm really happy having chosen them for our marriage party, and would recommend them for sure!

I wanted to express my sincere gratitude for the outstanding job you did at our recent event. Your level of professionalism and attention to detail truly set the tone for a successful and enjoyable gathering. From the moment you arrived ahead of schedule, it was clear that you were committed to making our event special. Your punctuality, combined with the seamless organization of the bar setup, made a significant positive impact on the overall flow of the evening. I especially appreciated the courtesy and friendliness exhibited by your team as well as your bilingual skills, which was a fantastic touch. Merci.

Marcel, Jan 2024

Dan and the Pro Bartenders team did a great job at our wedding. Dan walked us through the process from the earliest stages, helping us plan our bar, and telling us exactly what to buy. He was always available to answer questions, even when busy with other events. On the day of, he and his team were punctual, polite, and professional. Thanks, Dan!

Cameron & Gabrielle, Sept 2023

Working with Dan of ProBartenders was absolute pleasure. Knowledgeable and easy going, we couldn’t have asked for more in our bartender for our wedding. A good bartender can make all of the difference, both during the wedding and in the planning of the wedding. We could not be happier with our choice to work with Dan and highly recommend him to anyone looking for professional, organized, and thoughtful bartending.

Andrew & Jasmine, July 2023

I hired Dan and his bartenders for my husbands 50th birthday party. I had one bartender and one server. What an AMAZING experience! From Dan who was so attentive and helpful to the two ladies that went absolutely above and beyond my expectations. I would without a doubt hire them again! Thanks again for everything!

Michelle Robert, October 2022

Dan was an absolute pleasure! I hired him to bartend for my friends Showerette (bachelorette/ shower). He went above and beyond by calling me several times throughout the weeks leading up to the event to make sure all my questions were answered and that I had everything I needed. He even helped me find the entertainment for the evening via his LGBTQ+ group. He asked me if I was looking for entertainment, and basically read my mind when he suggested a drag queen. The members of the group suggested a local queen, and she was an absolute HIT at the party.

Kristyn D., September 2022

I recently attended an event that hired Dan Maskell’s company, Pro Bartenders. I must say I was impressed! I ended up arriving quite early to the event and was impressed to see that the bar was already set up, spotless and ready to go. The other thing that impressed me was Dan’s professionalism in dealing with a guest who had reached the safe limit of alcohol consumption. I can safely say that my colleagues and I had a wonderful evening thanks to Dan Maskell and Pro Bartenders. I would recommend Pro Bartenders for any event with much enthusiasm and without hesitation!

Michelle, August 2022

We hired Dan for our wedding reception and we had a great experience! He suggested cocktails and put together an inventory list to make our life easier. He was also available anytime we had a question during the planning stage. Many of our guests had positive feedback about him. I would highly recommend his services!

Helina, July 2022

Dan was our bartender for my wedding and he did an absolutely amazing job. I can’t recommend him enough. He went above and beyond from the moment we reached out to him. He was always available to help us figure out what we needed to get for drinks, mixes, garnishes. He was setup at the bar long before it opened and delivered excellent service throughout the night.

Clayton P., June 2022

We hired Dan for our wedding reception and he was absolutely fantastic. Dan goes above and beyond and works hard to let you enjoy your event and be present with your guests. Many of our guests commented on how professional and helpful he was - not only was he serving at the bar but he also was available to help with many other tasks that came up on the day of our event. I would highly recommend his amazing services and team!

Jennifer G., June 2022

I stumbled upon probartenders while looking for a bartender for my brother's 30th and what an experience I had with Dan. He suggested cocktails, shots, looked for ways for me to save and get everything I wanted for a reasonable price. He checked in multiple times to ensure everything was on track. Can you believe he arrived earlier the day of the party? By the time the guests started coming in, he was up and running. Everybody loved him and loved the experience! My brother was soo happy! I would never throw another party without Dan! Thank you Dan for making this a night to remember! Looking forward to having you again! You can never go wrong if you have him at your event!
