Hello, I'm Andy Collinson.
I founded Ace Bar Events in 2008 after 12 years of working in various hospitality environments. Whilst I was managing a high-volume, West End venue, my colleague and I decided to start running competitions to promote flair bartending within the UK (and worldwide). This turned out to be really popular with not only the bartenders, but also private clients who wished to book them for their own events. It was during this time that I identified that there was a gap in the market. It became very apparent that there was an inconsistency between the standards of bartending in high-end establishments and the quality of bartending staff employed in the events industry. I wanted to create a superior bar experience, with a focus that reached beyond just the physical elements of bar hire. I wanted to create a customer-focused service that would ensure a fun and memorable event, whilst providing an unquestionably professional service every time.
