What sets us apart

Bartend Chicago is the flagship market of Bartend, LLC. While we have grown to markets all across the country, Chicago remains the backbone of our beverage catering business. Bartend Chicago's team is on the ground working closely together in the upbeat neighborhood of River North in downtown Chicago.


It is important to note that the true faces of our company are those of the staff we send out every day,  however there are simply too many to put there. With that said, here are the ones behind the scenes, paving the way and creating an amazing experience for all.
Griffin Johnson Owner and CEO
As a Chicagoland native, Griffin identified early on, how much of a need there is for an easy-to-use bartending service. Over the years the solution, being Bartend Chicago, has evolved beyond local beverage catering into an elite national staffing agency.
Brooke Johnson Director of Event Sales
While being a jill-of-all traits, Brooke has found her home in the Event Coordination department. If she isn't the friendly voice you hear on the phone, she's making sure our coordinators are on top of your event.
Chris Malik Brand Manager
Chris has a significant influence on the way our team appears at each event. While he is one of our strongest bartenders on staff, he is also a strong on-site leader. If he happens to be behind your bar or running the show, consider yourself lucky, as you are in good hands.

Bartend Chicago has created a name for itself, in providing the best bartenders for hire.  We recruit our event staff right out of the industry, making them energetic, trendy, and prompt.
