Bar Catering and Cash Bar Service

Our catering team knows no boundaries!  We had the privilege of providing a catered cash bar service for a non-profit out of Llano, Texas, Llano Parks Project, and their annual New Year’s Fundraiser.  We ventured over 350 miles for this upscale shindig.

The event took place in Horseshoe Bay, Texas in their event venue, Quail Point.  It is a beautiful backdrop, situated on the edge of the lake.  Of course, guest attendees were dressed to the nines, ready to ring in the New Year!  Approximately 200 party-goers attended the event.

We had the fun task of tending two cash bars, ensuring everyone’s whistle remained wet.  The evening began with cocktail hour and complimentary signature drinks to get the party started.  Dinner service hour transitioned us over to cash bar status, where we served up everything from champagne, whiskey, and bottled beer to the specially requested Texas wine list.  The party culminated with the champagne toast at midnight, and everyone being shuttled back to the resort.  All in all, the event was a smashing success, and the coffers were filled to assist Llano in the quest for park beautification.

Bar catering is a service many catering companies in Lubbock shy away from.  It takes a well-trained bar tender and careful eye for detail to setup and run a bar anywhere.  Additionally, most event venues require that any alcohol served be tended by a TABC licensed bar tender.  That is for the safety of your guests and the legal protection of the venue.

At River Smith’s we employ a team of well-trained, TABC certified bar tenders able to take care of your guests anywhere you may need us.  The New Year’s party for Llano took us over 350 miles, but we are happy to be just around the corner for your next cash bar in Lubbock.

At River Smith’s we work hard to be the best catering company in Lubbock.  Unlike many of our competitors, we cook on-site, providing the freshest meal possible. If you need us to travel, we can haul our rigs over 300 miles. We can even go farther than that when needed. Some of our farthest gigs include Austin & Bandera, TX.  Here are a couple our most recent catering events.


On September 13th, 2016 we had the honor of catering for South Plains Electric Cooperative, SPEC, at their annual meeting of staff and customers.  With attendance over 2,000 people, there is no group too big for our team.  Since we cater all of our events onsite, the
food is absolutely as fresh as it can be. Whether you want our signature catfish and chicken, a full four meat bar-b-que, or anything else, we can handle every detail from drinks through desert. We would like to thank the wonderful staff and customers of SPEC for allowing us to cater your event!


This week, we catered Lamb Country Electirc Cooperative’s annual meeting, as we have done for many years. 
Returning catering customers like LCEC always make our day, putting their trust in us again and again. This group just loves our 4 meat combo including chicken bits, catfish, smoked sausage, and smoked brisket. Its a large group, usually about 800 people in attendance, so that means a whole lot of food! Its great to see friends and other customers at this annual event that is held at Littlefields Ag Building. Its a great event and we look forward to doing it again next year!

Whether a small lunch in your office or a large group of thousands, we can cater your next event with great food and the best service. Contact us to book your event by email
