Professional Bartenders & Servers, Inc. (PBS) was founded by Robert Gold, a banquet bartender himself since 1987, who noticed that there was a complete lack of qualified bartenders and food servers available to work the many large and small events in the Washington, DC metropolitan area.
PBS is the premier staffing company for many of the Washington DC area's hotels, caterers, and country clubs. We have also built a great reputation working with event planners and individuals hosting their own events and are a full service, professional, party and event staffing company.
Bartenders, wait staff, and supervisors are professionally trained to our high PBS standards and provide service in hotels, at private parties in your home or office or any other type of facility. Our staff offers friendly, personable service, and are fluent in English. We have staff who are fluent in several other languages should this be a necessary criterion for your Party or Special Event.
Bartenders are all TIPS Certified (Training for Intervention Procedures by Servers of Alcohol). This is a dynamic skills based national training program designed to prevent intoxication, drunk driving and underage drinking by enhancing the fundamental people skills of servers, sellers and consumers of alcohol. We believe TIPS gives our staff the knowledge and confidence they need to recognize potential alcohol related problems and the ability to intervene to prevent alcohol related accidents.
We protect our clients and staff by ensuring all staff is covered by Workmen's Compensation, General Liability Insurance, Umbrella/ Excess Liability Insurance and Liquor Liability Insurance.
