About Bar Artistry

Meet Arthur

Hi there! My name is Arthur Plowden, better known as “Party Arty”!!!

I am the owner and Senior Barman of Bar Artistry, a national mobile bartending company, based in Tampa, FL. I am truly a people person in every sense, having gone through all facets of the hospitality industry in my career.

Hospitality  to me means simply this… Put a smile on someone’s face, love what you do, share good energy, and most importantly, have FUN!

Myself, along with our incredible team of exceptional professionals, are excited to bring you something unique and special for your upcoming event. We know that you and your guests will feel the infectious energy found through Bar Artistry, leaving you with an experience you will remember forever!

Our Bartenders & Mission

We’re not just bartenders, we’re entertainers!!! Bar Artistry is about more than just serving drinks. We look to inject an infectious and high level energy to create an unparalleled experience for each and every event! Bar Artistry prides themselves on hosting your event with nothing but the best in quality, top level bar artists. Your event professional is a well vetted, industry professional. All Bar Artistry bartenders are individuals who have an extensive career history in the hospitality and/or tourism industry, and showcase the art of bartending as their primary profession.

You can rest assured that your bartender is well versed from their experience in the field, competition level talent in events across the globe, and knowledge in mixology, wine & beer. This is what we love to do and are excited to share our craft with you. And don’t be surprised, you just might find your bartender out on the dance floor with you!

How it Works

The four step process is easy to get the party started.

1. Inquiry

Give us a call, Send us an email, or Fill out our online inquiry form. Let us know how you’d like to celebrate!

2. Proposal & Consultation

After receiving your event details, we will draw up a customized proposal, including contract details, for your review. One thing that sets us apart as a hospitality driven company, is that we love personalized connections. Rather than talking over the phone or emails, we’d love to schedule a little meetup, better yet over HAPPY HOUR, and really get to know you and what Bar Artistry can do to make your specific bar set up amazing!

3. Booking

When you’ve decided to get the party started with Bar Artistry, simply return your signed contract along with booking deposit, and your date will be secured.

4. Party Time

You’ve been waiting for this day, and now it’s finally here! Your bartender will arrive approximately 1.5 – 2.5hrs before the start of service time, depending on bar type, for full set up. All that’s left for you to do is kick back, grab a drink and have a blast!!!

Demos, Tastings & Masterclasses are also available.

Bar Artistry provides Highly Trained & Educated Artists and Sommeliers to create the most memorable and interactive experience for your event.

Events are custom priced based on style & structure
