Professional Bartenders & Servers, Inc. is a full-service professional, party and event staffing company. PBS is the premier
staffing company for many of the Washington D.C. area's hotels, caterers, and country clubs. We
have built a great reputation working with event planners and individuals hosting their own events.
All of our servers, bartenders, bar backs, pantry chefs, and captains are professionally trained to our high PBS standards. Every staff member is covered by Workmen's Compensation, General Liability Insurance, Umbrella/ Excess Liability Insurance and Liquor Liability Insurance.
Wait staff are professionally trained to handle all types of banquet and catering styles of service. They are required to complete our five-hour hands-on food service training class. Servers will set up, serve and break down your event per your request. Wait staff are experts at the following types of service: plated, buffet, family style and French.
Our professionally-trained bartenders can coordinate any type of bar setting from specialty drinks and martini bars to beer and wine bars and non-alcoholic
beverages. All of our bartenders attend a two-day training session on how to work in a banquet bar setting plus a one-day advanced banquet bartending
class. Our bartenders are TIPS certified, which is a four-hour class on alcohol intervention procedures.
If you require three or more bartenders, we highly recommend using a bar back. A bar back will make sure all bars remain fully stocked, replenish glassware and assist bartenders where needed.
Our pantry chefs are highly skilled in the kitchen and can design and arrange your food to perfection. All pantry chefs are certified by the National
Registry of Food Safety Professionals.
PBS captains supervise your party for you and will give clear direction to all service staff. They coordinate all details with the Event Information
Specialist or client to set up, serve and break down the event to ensure that everything runs smoothly. If you request six or more staff members,
we suggest using a captain.
