As a Santa Barbara wedding planner, I highly recommend Top Shelf for your event staffing needs. The owner Jude and his team recently worked a wedding for me at a private estate and they were outstanding. They were professional, courteous, timely, efficient and thorough. Jude knew the right questions to ask in order to ensure we had proper staffing and all of our bases covered. I would recommend and work any event with Top Shelf.

Top Shelf was outstanding.  We used Jude and Top Shelf for our wedding at Chase Palm Park Recreation Center in Santa Barbara and we couldn't be happier.  We rented their lighted bar and the bartender they sent along was fantastic.  Jude was our "day of" coordinator and he made our special day run so smoothly.  We would recommend jude and Top Shelf SB to anyone in the market for a day of planner, bar and bartender.    Jude made the usually stressful day stress free and worked his butt off all day.  We couldn't have picked a more perfect person to help out.  If you are in the market for a day of coordinator, an awesome light up bar or a bartender with flare and personality... HIRE TOP SHELF SB ASAP!!!  They are affordable, easy to work with and just the nicest guys.

thanks again Jude and the Top Shelf crew.

Without a doubt, Jude is the best guy to work with around town.  I'm an event producer based in NYC and LA, and never worked in SB before, so I looked to yelp and decided to trust the reviews on here for Top Shelf.  BEST DECISION I EVER MADE!  Jude was so accommodating and quick with responses from when I got in touch to post-event wrap.  His pricing is fabulous.  He is very helpful and provided an experience security doorman as well for us for a better price than his competitors in SB.
He is also just a great all-around dude who is very easy to talk to, definitely adding to the service aspect of the event.  He goes above and beyond.  I only wish I could use him in NYC and LA for future events!

First of all from the first call to our day of, Jude was quick to answer all our questions and make us feel at ease. We got married at the end of August and we were amazed at the great service provided by Jude and his staff.  They were on it, attentive and made the reception run smoothly. One of the best investments we made for our wedding.  Thank you for making our day that much better!! YOU GUYS ARE AWESOME!! Totally recommend them for any type of event.
