About us

Welcome to Barman Emporium (BE)!

I’m Hugo P., owner of Barman Emporium Events, LLC.

Barman Emporium Events LLC is a registered and insured company serving Pennsylvania and Florida, with more than 10 years of experience in bartending and waitstaff services. Our mission is to create a personalized cocktail menu tailored to each individual party, featuring signature cocktails made with all-natural ingredients.

A Spirited Journey Through the Art of Cocktails and a Journey Sparked by a Shaker

My passionate voyage into the world of cocktails began in 2009 when I purchased my first shaker. Since then, my dedication and love for spirits, mixology, and bar culture have grown ever stronger. In 2010, I took a bold step by selling my first shaker online, marking the beginning of an exciting entrepreneurial journey. Over time, our passion evolved into a pioneering company in Venezuela, establishing the first physical and online store dedicated to barware: ArmaTuBar.com.

A Commitment to Excellence

Our commitment to excellence led us to connect with incredible industry professionals, from bartenders and mixologists to renowned brand ambassadors. We proudly sponsored various competitions across Venezuela, Colombia, the Dominican Republic, and Puerto Rico, sharing our passion for cocktails with the world.

Expanding Our Reach

In 2017, we took another leap forward by opening our first event company in the United States, based in Philadelphia. In 2022, we brought our experience and knowledge to Tampa Bay, Florida, with the opening of another Barman Emporium location.

Join Our Community of Passionate Spirits

Barman Emporium is more than just a service; it's a community of individuals passionate about crafting and enjoying spirits. Join us to share your love of cocktails, discover new flavors, and create unforgettable experiences.

 Cheers!

Hugo and his team were amazing in every aspect!Every interaction with Hugo and his team were professional, timely and extremely competent - from initial questions to when they left my home. Hugo’s bartending created an element of fun for my guests, and his server was incredible also - taking care of set up, service to my guests, and clean up. The entire time they both had a huge smile on their faces - I couldn’t have asked for a better experience. Their presence and positive attitudes enabled us to enjoy our guests and the evening.

Barman Emporium provided a fantastic service for our garden party! They took care of every detail and brought all of the drinks, customizing every detail we wished. A highlight was the delicious cocktails made with fresh herbs, carefully selected liquors and a warm smile. Our guests loved the trailer, the great service and the attention to detail. Highly recommended!

Great experience with the wait staff from Barman Emporium. They helped to make our picnic on July 1 a great success. They even weathered a brief down pour of rain and still managed to tend to our employees in a fast and efficient manner. Wonderful job. I highly recommend them for your next event! I used the services of Barman Emporium again on July 29, 2022. They were terrific and so polite. They worked up until the last minute of their booked time to ensure we had a successful event. Kudos to Holly for sending the right waitstaff! I highly recommend them for your future events.

Outstanding service and experience! I hired Barman Emporium for a back-yard celebration with 60 guests and they were excellent. Hugo worked with me on the all the details of the bar service and cocktails, and even provided a shopping list that helped me get the right quantities of all spirits, wines, and ingredients. They made signature cocktails based on our own preferences and even created a custom sign. Hugo and his staff worked tirelessly to keep the drinks coming and our guests were delighted! If you're planning a special celebration, hire this bartender without hesitation.

I worked with Holly, one of the owners of Barman Emporium to hire two servers for my husband's 60th birthday party in our backyard last weekend. Holly was extremely responsive and provided detailed information on what services the servers would provide at the party. We were extremely happy with the servers that Barman Emporium sent to our home. Our servers were Ryan and Maddie and they were truly outstanding. They were both super friendly and provided exceptional service. I received numerous compliments from our friends and family about how great the servers were. They did a fantastic job making sure our guests had food, bringing them food if they needed it, making sure the coolers had ice, replenishing beverages in the inflatable coolers and clearing the tables. They kept the centerpiece candles lit, reminded me when it was time to serve the birthday cake and left a very clean kitchen with all of the leftovers neatly packed in our refrigerators. They made a point of checking in with my husband, the birthday boy, and made sure he had everything he needed. I was amazed at how detailed and proactive they were! Our guests were in great hands and well taken care of. It was so wonderful to be able to relax and enjoy the party!! I would highly recommend Ryan and Maddie and Barman to all of my friends. Several of them were asking me for contact information so I'm sure you'll be hearing from some of them for their future events. Barman Emporium truly exceeded our expectations and made my husband's 60th birthday party a very fun and relaxing evening for both of us and our guests.

I can’t say enough wonderful things about Barman Emporium! I had the pleasure of working with owner Holly to plan the bar and waitstaff services for my wedding. She was always helpful, responsive, and thoughtful in helping me select the right package and figuring out the details. On the day of my wedding, owner Hugo and Abby were our incredible bartenders. They showed up early to decorate the absolutely adorable Cocktail Carriage, and they provided friendly and fast service to our guests. The drinks were delicious and kept everyone happy. We also worked with two waitstaff, Hope and Daniel, who went above and beyond to make the party run smoothly. They worked hard all night, making sure I did not have to worry about a single thing. I highly recommend hiring Barman Emporium for your next event. Their expertise and professionalism is unmatched and will be sure to make your next event stand out! Thank you, Holly and Hugo!
