Prêt-à-POUR-ter was started by bartender and businesswoman Niki Scioli, who, with a decade of experience in the hospitality industry, wanted to bring her own spin to the field of private bartending. Our team is professional, experienced and well-versed in the art of imbibing. We also provide overall refreshment planning. Niki is also a member of the United States Bartender's Guild.
Rates are $40/hr per bartender and $32/hr per bar back/cocktail server/busser.
We also offer a complete bar package starting at $225, depending on party size, which includes shakers, wine keys and bottle openers, service containers and coolers, ice, straws, beverage napkins, all non-alcoholic mixers, bottled waters, and garnishes.
We specialize in custom cocktail creation. We also consult on quantity calculations and alcohol ordering, and can provide full service party planning. Please contact us for a quote.
Our uniform is black pants and black t-shirts, unless the client specifies otherwise.
