Mobile Bartenders with Style & Class
We are the first and only mobile bar able to efficiently clean our tins and truly shake delicious cocktails due to our custom built mobile tin rinser. We also hand built our mobile bar that fits two bartenders! We also: squeeze our own citrus, use hand-craft syrups, order specialty ice, and much more.
Let Us shake Up the Fun
If you're looking to hire bartenders for events or your special day; having a professional bartender will improve your team's/guest's experience and help create a more distinguished event.
Meet Our Mixologists
Hey, how's it going. I'm Andrew, but people call me Drew. I'm born and raised in San Diego, CA and I've been mixing drinks for over 9 years, with 15 years experience in the service industry. I landed my first bartending opportunity at barleymash, in the heart of Downtown's Gaslamp District. I soon landed a job bartending at one of San Diego's most prestigious craft cocktail bars, Polite Provisions. Here, I've had the opportunity to master my craft and perfect the art of making delicious cocktails for the public to enjoy. I currently bartend at Aero Club, a staple to San Diego since 1947 and a bar that boasts over 1000 whiskeys to choose from.
After being in this industry and attending numerous private events that host a mobile bar, I've noticed a lack of craftsmanship and elegance when compared to what is offered at your local cocktail bar. So I decided to bridge the gap by teaming up with my Uncle Joe and create Progressive Pours. We devised and built a custom mobile bar that can efficiently serve drinks and rinse our tins, allowing us to create any cocktail our clients would like at their private events!
Hey, what's up. My name is Joe, and I became a bartender back in 2007. I gained my bartending experience from working at places like The Sheraton Hotel, Sufi Fine Dining, Coronado Cays Yacht Club, and private events.
I have always enjoyed building new things and hands-on work. So when my nephew proposed the idea of Progressive Pours, I knew this would be perfect for me. With our combined bar knowledge and service experience, we are able to create a mobile bar company unlike any other on the market.

Frequently Asked Questions
We put together a list of questions we commonly get from our clients when it's time to plan their party.
Do you provide alcohol for the event?
No we do not. Due to ABC laws, since we don't have a liquor license, we cannot resell alcohol. We however will create a shopping list to guide you on what to purchase. You get to choose what you want to be served at your event!
Do I (the host) need to have ice, beverage napkins, fold-out table, etc. for the bartender?
Of Course not! The beauty of our service is the only thing required by you is the alcohol. We want to make your experience in booking and hosting a bartender as easy as possible.
Is there a server to tray-pass drinks?
Yes, we offer servers for an additional fee. They are able to take orders table-side, bus plates and barware, and run drinks to your guests. Servers are highly recommended for any-size wedding to help ensure your guests are satisfied and well taken care of without moving from their seat.
Do we need to provide trash cans for my party?
Yes. Although our bar will have a trash can for our bar waste, you will still be responsible for providing trash cans for your guests use.
Is progressive Pours a cash bar?
We do not operate as a cash bar. If you'd like to offer a cash bar, all the proceeds will go to you, (not including tips) and may not be used towards our service fee.
Does the bar have a tip jar?
Yes, we will bring a tip jar. Our employee's level of service does not rely on tips and it is ultimately the guest's obligation to leave a tip. If you choose to not have a tip jar on the bar, you have the option to "buy out the jar."
Do you provide a delivery service for alcohol?
We do not provide a delivery service for your alcohol. The alcoholic beverages must be provided by the host.
What are the acceptable forms of payment?
We accept Venmo, cash, or credit card (4%fee)
