We chose DeGruv to bartend our wedding this August and we are so happy with our decision! Eddena was easy to work with, pleasant, organized, professional, and patiently answered all of my questions via email and phone. She made a custom list of all of the items we needed for the drinks we wished to serve at our wedding. She made sure her bartenders arrived in time so that they would not interrupt our ceremony and would be set up to start on time. The bartenders were dressed professionally and made great drinks! They didn't make drinks that you are disappointed in when you take a couple of sips and realize that they skimped on the alcohol. They made a good solid drink! Our guests were thrilled with the bar and kept those bartenders busy all night. All of our guests complimented us on them. The bar was a huge piece of our wedding reception and we are so happy that DeGruv was so good to us. DeGruv knows how to run a business, give good customer service, and make great drinks! They were so professional and organized that there was no direction from us on the day of. So pleased! They are great quality for an affordable price. You will not be disappointed with DeGruv :)

Outstanding customer service, amazing staff, delicious selection. Everyone in the event loved them. I called DeGruv Liquid Catering with a last-minute request for service for a corporate event. Not only did they respond to my inquiry within the hour, Eddena was flexible,fast, and cost effective. DeGruv took care of everything-purchasing, setup, breakdown, cleaning, bartending services and supplies were all included in the estimate. She provided an outstanding customer experience and I will definitely be using her services in the future.
