Emerald City Cocktails proudly provides all-inclusive service, start to finish! Each booking with Emerald City Cocktails includes unlimited consultation with owner and professional bartender Neil Ratliff - we are here to answer your questions every step of the way. 

First, we'll chat with you about all the details: what you would like to serve, your budget, what you have, what you don't, what you love, and what you don't! Then, we'll help you craft the perfect beverage menu according to your expectations by creating custom cocktail ideas, arranging wine tastings, suggesting tips and tricks, and estimating quantities and budget. You're going to have questions, because you don't hire bartenders every day! We are here to answer them via phone, email, video chat, or meeting up in the Seattle area. 

On the big day, our bubbly bartenders arrive early to setup everything, with all the equipment you need for a killer bar service!

What’s Different About Our Pricing?

  • We never charge additional gratuity.

  • No rental fees - all equipment is included.

  • Setup and cleanup is on our time, not yours.

  • You tell us what you need, we quote a flat rate, and that’s all that you pay!

Every event is unique, so why use one-size-fits-all pricing? Some clients have the details planned and just need simple staffing, while others need help from start to finish, and everything in between. If you don’t require much equipment or planning, you’ll pay less, and we think that’s the way it should be. Just tell us about your party and we’ll give you a fair, upfront quote that covers everything!
