‘’We required a pop up bar and wanted to create a cocktail masterclass for around 50 guests at our first event at Department, old Granada studios. Dovetail created the most amazing bespoke cocktail which was vegan! Would highly recommend for any event where you want a WOW – the cocktails are to die for, and they made the whole event easy to organise – extremely professional’’

Dan ShidlowCommunity Manager

‘’Dovetail Drinks delivered our wedding clients the most splendid array of stunning cocktails on several different arears around our stunning venue for their wedding day. They displayed the utmost professional approach to their set-up, delivery and display that has yet to be surpassed by any other supplier visiting our site. As such we can wholeheartedly recommend their services to any event that seeks a high end cocktail service that will create an atmosphere that buzzes with excitement and enjoyment for all who attend.’’

I recently used Dovetail for a prestigious awards launch and I could not be happier with the service and drinks they provided, they designed a themed cocktail which suited our brand perfectly they also made a non-alcoholic version for those who were driving. I would recommend the team in a heartbeat for any event, a pleasure to work with and our guests were in love with their cocktails and our specially branded bar

We recently hosted a wellbeing event at our offices and I asked Jess and the team at Dovetail Drinks to organise a cocktail and mocktail bar for us with our logo on. I couldn't have been happier with the end result. The logo looked fantastic and added a really special touch to the event. The cocktails were delicious and tied in brilliantly with our theme. Finally, the staff were so friendly and it was just a pain free process. I will definitely be using Dovetail Drinks again for our events.
