Selecting a quality bartender to manage your reception or event is as equally important as the food service and decorations. Many catering companies say they offer bartending service and then assign a food service person to the task. Maybe you get someone behind the bar who's a gem. Maybe not. You won’t know until it’s too late. Why take the risk? Bartending by Mallard offers licensed, experienced, quality bartenders serving the Tacoma, Gig Harbor and Puget Sound region.
