Our Story

Kane & Jacqui

Kane and Jacqui started Hire A Bartender Events as a passion project with a focus on mobile bartending and event planning in their unique barn venue.  Over the years the couple have performed bar coordination, execution and event planning for weddings, festivals, private events, bachelor and bachelorette cocktail lessons and much more.

What they are most known for at Hire A Bartender is  “The Thirsty Smuggler”.  A vintage 1983 horse trailer turned mobile bar that plays ode to those who braved the seas in the face of prohibition and brought good cheer and celebration during the rum running history of the Canadian Maritimes.
