Inspiring Conversations with Eddie Grigorian of Classic21 Bartending Services

Today we’d like to introduce you to Eddie Grigorian.

Hi Eddie, can you start by introducing yourself? We’d love to learn more about how you got to where you are today?
I always had a drive and passion for events as long as I can remember. I started to coordinate events for a law firm in my early 20’s and started my own event company soon after. Everything halted once I started graduate school to study History. After several years of teaching at the high school and college level, I knew I was missing my passion for events. I began helping friends with their events and soon began bartending when needed. I realized how much I enjoyed serving and making drinks immediately. I enrolled in a bartending school and got certified in order to make sure I am able to meet all of my client’s needs. After working for a company for several months, I realized the only way I am going to truly make it is to start my own business. Hence Classic21 Bartending Services and have never looked back; best decision I ever made.

Would you say it’s been a smooth road, and if not what are some of the biggest challenges you’ve faced along the way?
With any business, you will have bumps and bruises along the way. But all have made me stronger and a great learning experience. It has been a great journey and continue to learn each day.

Thanks – so what else should our readers know about Classic21 Bartending Services?
Classic21 Bartending Services provides an individualized experience for each client. Every event meets the personal and individual needs of the client. I do not offer set packages, as each event is unique. The goal is to ask as many questions to provide and create a vision of the event he/she would like to have. I am most proud of the team I have built and prefer quality individuals and focusing on each event. You ALWAYS get me at your event and not a random person showing up. My heart and passion go into each event and take pride in providing the perfect service each time. It’s not always about pouring/mixing a cocktail, it’s about providing the ultimate service and always being attentive.

What was your favorite childhood memory?
Helping my mother in the kitchen and working with my father on the weekends.
