I used SOW for a backyard birthday party and we were lucky to have Jordan himself on the night. He was very friendly, professional and easy to deal with throughout the whole experience. He also did an amazing job despite the heat! The bar set up was nice and the cocktails were so smooth and delicious and definitely a hit with everyone.

Jordan was quick to respond to our initial enquiry and more than happy to assist, finding the best options for our event. We had a fabulous night with Marty the van. Bartenders, Julian and Kayla were fantastic! Top marks to Julian for his driving skills, placing the van exactly where we envisioned it. Many of our guests were very impressed and asked how we found you. We were sure to pass on your details to them. Thanks for helping Here are some photos from the night. Jo & Pete

I arranged Shakers On Wheels for my 30th party at my home and I honestly can say it was the best decision I could have made! The cocktails were lux and delicious and worth every penny! The set up and service was outstanding and the guests and I loved it! If you're considering using this company for your next event I highly recommend. Jordan and the team were so easy to talk with, provide quotes and information and made the night a smooth process. Thank you so much and I'm still recovering from the hangover 🤣🥰

I worked with Jordan and Oliver for a Fragrances & Cocktails Masterclass on behalf of Libertine Parfumerie. We hosted this event at Myer, for our VIP customers. Oliver was perfect during the event, took care of 26 customers and made 6 different cocktails to match 6 fragrances. We planned the event with Jordan, who helped me a lot with the recipes for the cocktails and was very good at communicating. Thank you again for this successful event! I would recommend Shakers on Wheel to everyone :)
