We were looking for a bartender for our wedding at Flora Corner Farms and our amazing florist Scarborough Farms recommended Katie. We went to the bar she was bartending at and she was slaying behind the bar. She was whipping up cocktails with a smile the fastest I'd ever seen. We had to have her bartend at our wedding and she was a HIT!!!!! I don't think anyone really gets compliments about a bartender for a wedding but I had at least 30 of my guests come up to me telling me how great Katie was. We are liquor, wine, and beer reps in the family so we had a top shelf FULL bar with all the mixers and she made ANY drink possible and was sooo much fun!! The best part is no one had to wait for a drink!!! That's huge when you're in a small setting at a wedding. I recommend Katie to anyone and everyone if you want good service, an extremely hard worker, and a beautiful smile! Thanks Katie!!!

We ran a corporate event in Annapolis and it was super important to our executive team that we had someone that would reflect well on us and our partners. Katie was perfect; we provided the booze and she handled everything else!  With charm, grace and hustle, she went above and beyond our expectations.  Katie is an artist using the bar as her canvas. She makes guests smile just as quickly as she creates their drinks.  Unsure of what to get? No problem! Like a skilled craftsman (or craftswoman!), Katie asks the right questions to make the proper suggestions, engages the crowd in small talk, and keeps the line moving! She's professional, personable, industrious and courteous. I'd highly recommend her for any event, large or small.

The epitome of service, there is no equal to compare - the positive attitude, the quality of service, the attention to detail and the ability to make the customer feel important!!  Katie York is equally skilled at handling twelve customers or 120 customers without missing a beat.   She stays one-step ahead of your next order and she is fluent is mixology!  I've known Katie for many years and I recognize her passion and ethic  for work, I trust her judgment and her flawless character.  She served our very important wedding rehearsal years ago and did a fabulous job and I will entrust her with my daughter's most important day, in the foreseeable future.  Katie is that good and that special.   If you value your investment and you desire the highest caliber of service; you'll never be let down by having Katie work/serve and cater to your friends and family!

We hired Katie to bartend our 85-person wedding and she was incredible! From helping us figure out how much of everything to order to coming up with creative signature drinks that our guests loved to making sure that all the little details, like menu signage and bar decor, were just right, we could not have done it without her. Throughout it all, she was professional, accessible, very knowledgeable and an absolute pleasure to work with, I would recommend her without hesitation for any event, large or small.

Katie first impressed me with her outgoing personality at a friend's wedding. It was then followed by immediate responsiveness when communicating via email.  She made the process seamless and easy for my wedding.  She made sure every small detail was taken care of and my guest and I could not have been more happy.  She was so sweet and everyone loved interacting with her. She has an awesome bar that looks great at any venue and helps provide any bar supplies you need. I highly recommend her for any party/wedding/bar needs! She was absolutely fantastic!
