We provide professionally trained bartenders and waitstaff who have years of experience in the hospitality and food service industries. Our professionals are the best in the business, known for providing the highest level of customer service to you and your guests.

Hire a Bartender
We recommend one bartender for every 25 to 50 guests. Whatever the size of the event, we will send qualified bartenders right to your door! Please allow one hour for set up and break down. We also offer TIPS® certified bartenders for your event upon request. Learn more about the TIPS program that helps to limit your liabilities when requesting the serving of alcohol, beer and wine at parties and other venues.

Full Bar - No Problem
You purchase the alcohol, we do all the work! We have the expertise to get it done. 

Wine and Champagne Tableside Service
Champagne or wine passed on trays or served to your guests’ tableside by our service staff. With a smile!

We can create special drinks or theme parties for your guests or clients! Let our creative team go to work for you!

Selection of Temps
We provide staff to all top caterers, country clubs, hotels, and contract food service companies. Our front of the house staff has a great appearance and social skills. Our back of the house staff is selected for experience, work ethics and communication skills. You’ll get great temps, in uniform, on time, every time.

Last Minute – No Problem
Your request for temps will receive an immediate response, even after business hours. We prefer advance notice, but we shine when it comes to next day or even same-day service. Do you need a cook, a dishwasher or banquet server for a dinner shift tonight? Do you need twenty wait staff in tuxedos and four bartenders for the weekend? No problem!

When our staff looks good, you look good. So we provide tuxedo attire to banquet staff and white kitchen attire to culinary staff; you can always count on a clean, pressed, consistent look.

Our cooks are tested for knife skills, culinary knowledge, and food safety. Our waitstaff and bartenders go through a hands-on training program and written skills assessment.


Your Satisfaction is Guaranteed
Call us within the first hour and we’ll fix the problem, replace the temp or refund the time.

Waiters, Bartenders, Captains, Chefs, etc.

Catering / Banquet waitstaff for Restaurant style service at Wedding Halls, Banquet Halls ,Country Clubs and Private Homes or Corporate locations. We also staff  Yacht Parties - Art Galleries showings - Wedding Halls - Theater/Play openings - Restaurants - Private parties

Wait Staff and Bartenders for all types of Metro Detroit and SE MIchigan party events. From high "white glove" formal to "cook out" casual. Anytime/Anywhere you want to add the classic Black Bow Tie Service touch that turns any gathering into an event.

Black Bow Tie Services is a specially temp help recruitment and booking organization of waiters, bartenders, and other hospitality professionals with years of experience providing dedicated service in some of the finest country clubs, restaurants, corporate locations, hotels, galleries, and private homes in the Greater Detroit area. Whether you need a full crew, a supplement to your present staff, or just an "extra pair of hands", the positively finest professional waiters, bartenders and other banquet or restaurant personnel, and (if I do say so myself), some of the finest people you'll ever work with are ready to serve you in the same grand style.


Perhaps a club with your exclusive membership, or the diverse demands of your catering business, does not warrant hiring the full time personnel required to staff an unusually large event, or an extraordinary number of reservations. You can now fully staff your events with only one phone call and complete payroll with just one check. For your peace of mind we carry several times the suggested minimum coverage.

Perhaps it has been difficult to maintain the service standards your members or clients have come to expect with the "on call" people that you have been using because they don't do that type of work full time. The agencies you've tried send people who lack experience and polish, or don't quite seem to exhibit the professionalism and cooperative attitude you've developed and have come to expect from your full time in-house staff. We understand. We've worked with many of them for other agencies. What can you expect from us? Service / No Nonsense. You'll be pleasantly surprised to find that our standards frequently exceed your own.

Working at varied locations and circumstances develops a certain versatility, but the importance of good grooming and a genuine enthusiasm for the work doesn't change. It travels with us right along with our tuxedos and professional skills to every location and event that we've been invited to ply our trade. Is it really hard to find "good help"? Not anymore. The next time you find yourself in need of a full crew, a supplement to your present staff, or just an "extra pair of hands", the positively finest professional waiters, bartenders and other banquet or restaurant personnel, and (if I do say so myself), some of the finest people you'll ever work with are only a phone call away....

  • FAQ.. Can I cook the food beforehand and have your wait staff warm and serve it??

    This is precisely what we do for the majority of our clients. Although we can assist in coordinating and assisting with food caterers and chefs, in most cases our clients prefer to prepare their event menus (including the cooking) on their own or through a recommended Food Catering Service. We provide the wait-staff and bartenders to set-up, serve and clean-up on the day of your event.
  • I am interested in having an event catered. What should I do first?
  • Simply give us a call at 586-775-7100 to schedule your party staff requirements. Be prepared to provide us with the date of your event, approximate guest count, and event location and party theme. We then proceed to prepare a customized proposal based on your event needs. Please call us well ahead of time if your guest list exceeds 25 so we can properly prepare for your event in materials and staff.
