With over 35 years of combined experience in the food & beverage, hospitality and events industries in Chattanooga, we – Pete and Beth Lapina, the owners – have worked with a wide variety of venues, caterers, restaurants, private clubs and served at many themed events. We are happy to share suggestions and basic planning ideas to help you with your event. When you hire us for your function, full consultation services are included. We can meet with you in person and even at your event location to offer planning suggestions, full bar consultation and set-up layout.

We offer perspective on food and beverage placement to ensure the best service experience for your guests. Based on how you’d like your event to flow, we can offer insights on guest behavior, where they tend to congregate or bottleneck, that you may not have considered in your set-up plan. We are often hired by a caterer as an extension of their staff, but if you’ve hired us directly, we are happy to collaborate with your caterer on these considerations so that the event will flow seamlessly through each phase of service.

Whether this is an in-home dinner party, fundraiser, life celebration or corporate event, our goal is for you to forget the details knowing that our professional servers will handle it once the event has begun. Best of all, you’ll  be able to entertain your guests, have fun and enjoy the luxury of not having to clean up afterwards.



Please call us for your next corporate event!

“I just wanted to thank you for everything you did to make Club Lib a huge success.  I really appreciate being able to depend on you to take care of so many of the details concerning food and beverages.  We could not have done it without you.”     Becky M.
