How do you charge?

Each bartending gig is as unique as the guests we're hosting.

What supplies do I need to prepare?

I provide a list of what you need to get for me to do bar service. The list is based on the bar menu you choose. I will send you a list of the glassware required, shakers, garnish, mixes, etc. that are needed to serve your guests.

I accept cash, eTransfer, personal cheque or money order.  There is a 25% deposit at the time of booking in order to reserve your date.

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 an hour 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

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!

Ines, August 2021

I attended a private event at the home of a friend last winter and had the pleasure of meeting Dan who was the bartender for the evening.  Dan was personable, funny, energetic and attentive to the needs of the guests.  His presence and personality made the event an evening to remember!
