Gulf Coast Bartenders

Gulf Coast Bartenders was established by Scott and Nalani Ford in order to fill the need for private party bartenders all along the Gulf Coast of Florida and includes a large service area spanning the coast and inland areas from Mobile, AL. to Destin, FL. Scott and Nalani have been bar owners and managers themselves and have a true understanding of what it takes to offer a professional and entertaining private bartender experience in any setting from the most formal black tie event to a casual beach affair.


The Gulf Coasts of Florida and Alabama plays host to thousands of beach themed weddings and special events each year and Gulf Coast Bartenders provides experienced and professional private bartenders to help each host make their event even more special and memorable for hosts and guests alike.

Adding a private bartender to your event is a great way to put a little panache, style and fun into your special occasion and having experienced private bartenders from Gulf Coast Bartenders will take the hassles and planning of great beverage service out of your hands and allow you to focus on the other details of your special day.


When you book one of our private bartenders for your wedding reception, holiday party, business outing or other special event, you will get an experienced, working bartender each and every time. You will never have to worry about getting a newbie or unprofessional bartender who is using your special day as practice for a real job. Many of our private bartenders are also TIPS certified which means that they have gone through extensive training in proper and responsible alcohol service principles which ensures that your guests are not only offered a fun and professional bar service experience, but that their safety and well-being is also a priority for your private bartender.


We love to have a great time and will do everything within our power to remove the stress of beverage service and help you create lasting memories that you and your guests will cherish forever.
