Tell us a little bit about you, and how you got started!
Hello, I am Denise! I am a 20 year veteran educator hailing from Nashville, TN and a byproduct of public education and received my undergraduate degree from Middle Tennessee State University. I got my start in the bar industry through my work with a non-profit and loved it so much that I decided to make a go of it with my daughter. Thus, The Drinking Well was born.
Hello, I am Kia, ½ of the mother and daughter duo behind The Drinking Well. We started the business amidst the pandemic! But we are no strangers to the bartending realm. I have bartended at various events including the CMA fest and other hot spots in Nashville. I am also a Nashville native! What started The Drinking Well? Well, my love of people and creating, of course! By day, you can find me immersed in technology but by night, you can find me, cocktail in hand, trying new things.
What makes your business unique?
What sets you apart from other mobile bartending services? Our uniqueness stems from bringing a personalized experience for our clientele.

Additionally, we curate cocktails that match the personalities of our couples/event hosts as well as pair bartenders to match the mood and ambience of the event.
