About Us


Blue Label Bartending Ownership Team

Blue Label Bartending is a bartending service company and a professional bartending school. Founded in 2007 by Garrett Blackwood, Blue Label Bartending has become the top choice for bartenders throughout Oklahoma, Arkansas and Kansas. We started with humble beginnings; just Garrett bartending events by himself. By 2009 we had 12 bartenders serving over 200 events each year, and added a bartending school in Tulsa. In 2010 Garrett won a Tulsey for “Young Entrepreneur” and is a regular drink-making guest on Fox23’s Great Day Green Country and KJRH’s The List. In 2012 Michelle Martin, one of our OKC bartenders, purchased Blue Label ‘s OKC bartending service operation, and in 2013 Tulsa Blue Label bartenders Mike Mitchell, Jennifer Bettenhausen and Brandy Merrill purchased the Tulsa bartending service operation, allowing Garrett to focus on the bartending school and other opportunities.

Blue Label Bartending

We can serve private parties anywhere in the U.S. from our Tulsa and Oklahoma City offices. We provide licensed bartenders and supplies for private parties and carry a $1 million commercial liability insurance policy and a $1 million liquor liability insurance policy. Our bartenders are attractive, energetic individuals and will make your event a success. We come to your location and professionally serve your drinks. Customers provide the alcohol, soft drinks and mixers while we can provide everything else. We can serve everything from beer and wine to martinis, shots, tropical drinks and much more. No party is too big or too small; we are excited to serve a personal pool party or a corporate event with several hundred guests. We always follow your suggested dress code.
