About Us


Both Tony and Pete got their starts in the business at Ole Madrid in the mid 90’s. They were fortunate enough to work along side with some of the most influential pioneers of the San Diego night life scene today. From there, they both went on to manage and bartend at some of San Diego’s premier bars and nightclubs. They started For Real Bartenders four years ago with the vision of providing unparralelled service, matched with a wealth of bar industry knowledge.For Real Bartenders cater to a wide range of events including weddings, fundraisers, political events, birthday parties, themed parties, you name it. If you are looking for professional bar service, For Real Bartenders is where to find it.

” What sets us apart from other Bar Services or Beverage Caterers is that our staff consists of only elite bartenders, barbacks, servers, cocktailers, D.J.’s, and security, that are currently working in San Diego’s hottest spots. This is what we do, and this is our passion. We aren’t a bunch of people who work day jobs, and then a couple times a month pour vodka tonics at a wedding. We are For Real Bartenders!

As For Real Bartenders expands and looks to the future, we are reminded of why we started For Real Bartenders in the beginning. To make your next event a memorable one! ”

Cheers! For Real Bartenders.
