Review - Bartenders Stripped

The other weekend, I hosted an intimate cocktail party at my house. No special occasion, just an excuse to have a well needed catch up with some of my friends and neighbours.

You might remember from last year that I had a Social & Cocktail party; well, the guys have started a new enterprise called Bartenders Stripped.

As the name suggests, the bartenders are (nearly) naked with just a little apron covering the crown jewels!! Oh & he also had a bow tie!! I felt ever so slightly awkward to begin with, but you soon forget... especially the more cocktails you have! My guests found the whole thing really amusing & it was a great laugh. The poor guy had to put up with our chat all evening!! 

Our bartender arrived before the guests to set-up the bar in my living room (wearing his clothes!). Same format as last time... the bar arrives in a box, which then transforms rather spectacularly into a proper little bar. It's really impressive. He then snuck upstairs to strip (!) & he was back for the guests arriving.

For this party unlike the previous one, we didn't have any input for the cocktails that were to be served. On the list were:
  • Woo Woo
  • Sex on the Beach
  • French Martini
  • Pornstar Martini
  • Strawberry Margarita
Half way through we had a bit of fun with a Blood Shot, which was a strawberry vodka concoction topped with squirty cream. We had to put out hands behind our back, and then take the shot glass in our mouth and down it... harder than it sounds!!

One of my friends got involved & helped make the Sex on the Beach cocktails:

 
The cocktails were delicious & really well presented. My only comment would be that perhaps rather than the set cocktail menu of 5, perhaps hosts could pick five from a list of 8 in advance, just to give a little bit of choice. I'm not a huge fan of tequila, and a few of us did end up leaving the margaritas which was a huge shame.

I personally think the parties are great value for money as you literally don't need to provide a thing for the drinks...even the ice was sorted along with the garnishes and glasses. All I had to do was provide some music & nibbles (quick trip to M&S!!). 


Bartenders Stripped would be fantastic for a hen party or girlie birthday party. Or like me, you don't really have to have a reason!! 

We received a complimentary party in exchange for a review. As always opinions are honest & my own.

  1. Thanks dear for sharing the reviews about this party. I am also thinking to throw an intimate cocktail holiday party very soon. I will be inviting only close friends to this party. So please friends suggest some decorations ideas for my intimate party.
