The drinks couldn’t have been better. So unique and so delicious. People are still telling me how they’re trying (and failing) to recreate the cocktails. I live in NYC and have been to a number of good mixology bars, and I honestly can’t say I’ve had a better drink than what they served. I seriously can’t come up with one…”

“Customer service is amazing, but what I think really what sets 13th Street apart from the rest is the presentation. One of our bars was a converted vintage horse trailer! It was beautiful and always well stocked. Almost every display is handmade by Aaron himself and his attention to detail is impeccable.”

“In terms of cocktails presentation, 13th Street make REAL cocktails that are served by REAL bartenders, not just hired wait staff. There’s none of that ‘splash of rum, entire bottle of soda water, and wilted mint leaves’ business that most weddings serve. With 13th Street, you get a real mojito, with fresh garnishes.”

“The cocktails look like they belong on Pinterest.”

“Imagine you are at a vintage, well-loved, upscale bar with wooden countertops, copper carafes, high-end liquor options, any condiment you could ask for, and any type of elixir you wanted!”

“Lots of delicious infused alcohols and fresh herbs.”

“Aaron really knows his stuff. For example, he served us a cocktail made with canned ginger ale and then served us the same cocktail made with fresh house-made ginger ale so we could taste the difference. He was super flexible and created seven signature cocktails for us based on our favorite liquors and flavors.”

“He truly is a mixologist like no other. His intelligence, passion and dedication to his craft is seen in all he does. Aaron is one of a kind!”

“The visual presentation was absolutely gorgeous.”

“The visual presentation is amazing, the customer service is on point, the team are extremely knowledgeable about cocktails, and most importantly, the price point is unbeatable.”

“Beautiful bowls and lots of fresh ingredients. The bar literally became a photo op area.”

“They were one of the major highlights of the entire wedding.”

“I would absolutely 100% recommend 13th St Cocktail Catering! Aaron is the greatest guy and his business is the perfect addition to any event!”
