  • How do I book Cocktails on Call for my event?
    1) The first step in the booking process is to complete an event details form, which allows us to guage your needs and customize your services. 2) Once completed you will receive a price quote to review. 3)Once you approve the price qoute, you will receive the depsoit invoice (25% of total cost) and the contract. The contract will outline all event details and our policies.
  • What types of events do you staff?
    We are a full service event staffing company, with the ability to accomodate small, intimate events as well as large, high volume events.
  • How far in advance should I book my event?
    While we strive to accomodate all requests, we recommend booking at least two weeks before your event. This allows us time to ensure staff availability and proper planning. For events scheduled during busier months (November-January; May-September) we recommend booking at least a month in advance.
  • How much time is needed to set up for my event? Is set up included?
    It is standard for set up to be complete before guests arrive. We include 60-90 minutes of set up for each event, at no additional cost. Some events require more set up time, but generally 60-90 minutes will suffice. This detail is determined when you first book your event.
  • Do you provide alcohol and other supplies? How much alcohol will I need?
    Yes! We are able to shop for, store, and deliver alcohol and other supplies to your event. The amount of alcohol we recommend depends on a variety of factors. We are happy to help you determine the specific needs for your event. You can also refer to this drink calculator as a guide. Please note: we do NOT sell alcohol, we provide a service. The client always pays for the alcohol independently by ordering online from our preferred retailer.
  • What forms of payment are accepted?
    We prefer electronic payments via debit/credit card, Cash App, Paypal, Venmo, and Zelle. We accept cash, with certain terms and conditions. Deposits must be paid electronically.
  • Are you a licensed bartender? Do you have a liquor license?
    Although DC, Maryland, and Virginia do not require bartenders to be licensed; all Cocktails on Call bartenders are required to be professioanlly certified and to undergo our training process. All Cocktails on Call alcohol servers and bartenders must complete a state approved (DC, MD, or VA) alcohol server / seller training and certification. We do not currently hold a liquor license, as we do not sell alcohol to our clients; we provide a service. However, we are able to secure a temporary liquor license for clients who require such. All fees are paid by the client. Please Note: DC, Maryland, and Virginia do NOT require you to posses a liquor license to serve alcohol to of-age (21 years old+) guests, at a private event in a private space. A liquor license is required for the sale of alcohol. Some event venues do require a liquor license to serve alcohol on their premises. We have liquor liability insurance and are certified to safely serve alcohol.
  • Can you refer a caterer and/or other vendors?
    Yes! We are happy to refer one of the highly recommended, professional vendors within our network. This includes, but is not limited to: chefs/caterers, DJs, event hosts/hostesses, photographers & videographers, and security.
