Our Craft

Let’s not resign ourselves to sub-par social experiences! We can facilitate any event you can dream up with only the flourish that a proper bartender can. We don’t do tricks. We don’t throw bottles in the air. We make classic drinks the right way: with quality ingredients and a lack of pretension. And we always enjoy getting creative with something new. Sometimes it’s as simple as making sure you have a skilled professional bartender for hire to anchor your event.  Sometimes you may need a custom infusion or a custom specialty cocktail list. Whatever you may need, Blue Book Barkeeps is here to take the burden of planning off your hands so you can sit back and enjoy your one of a kind event.

Important Notes on Pricing
  • Always assume about an hour of setup in the beginning and an hour of clean up at the end of an event. 

  • If we buy and bring anything specifically for your event, like ice, mixers, or even the alcohol, we pass that cost on directly to you and add a 20% Bar Consulting and Curation charge.   

  • Larger events (~125+ people), prices can often be customized to fit your needs and budget.

  • We are happy to service the northshore. We do charge a $50 Northshore Transit Fee to compensate our barkeeps for the added time and expense. 

  • Custom cocktails and infusions are always encouraged because they are delicious. They are priced on a case by case basis.
