Liquidmotion | G.L. Berg Entertainment


Flair Bartenders

Liquidmotion not only sets the bar, but raises it with our Champion Flair Bartenders who flip, mix, and entertain your guests at corporate events, weddings, dances, and parties. Our bartenders are a great feature or accessory to any event and can “steal the show” or fade into the background. Liquidmotion can work with existing caterers, or function independently to provide premium beverage service coupled with exciting showmanship. Liquidmotion is great for non-alcoholic functions too, as we specialize in making “mocktails” with premium ingredients that work great for college events, after-proms, or any event that wants the fun and not the alcohol.

Liquidmotion entertains in a combination of ways. Through “working flair,” the bartenders perform tricks while they bartend and make drinks. Expertise and experience allow our bartenders to give excellent and efficient service while incorporating a wide variety of eye-catching and show-stopping drink making techniques that are sure to enhance your event. With “exhibition flair” our bartenders take center stage.

By using complex tricks and choreographed routines, a flair bartender can captivate any size crowd. Our three to six minute routines can be used alone, purely to entertain the audience, or incorporated at timed intervals in addition to the functional bartending of your event. Imagine the scene when the bartender breaks into a bottle flipping frenzy to make the drink for your guest of honor!

I will definitely hire them again!”
