Khamila “Kitty” Barnes is a star behind the bar. She is a lover of libations and her creations are nothing less than pure artistic expression… in a glass. Kitty On Top mobile bartending was created in 2014 after Khamila worked for a few established venues and decided she wanted to offer a more personal and enhanced experience to her clients. Her husband encouraged her to build her own business based on her love of sharing libations wherever she encounters people… she freed herself from the restrictions of a bar and began mixing libations wherever her spirit took her and clients booked her. Homes, apartments, churches, backyards, barns, and even rooftops. One day she hopes to take her mixology skills to new heights on a private jet!
Kitty can be described as a beautiful young lady with an Old Fashioned spirit but loves to remix the classics and the results have been… well honestly Profitable.
“My goal is to provide a TOP Shelf experience to everyone, especially those who don’t have the means to travel or experience fine dining regularly. I enjoy every stage of creating a cocktail similar to an artist painting a masterpiece. I want the KOT experience to be both visually appealing and delicious. From the moment we meet until the smile after the first sip… my love for libations is poured into every drink.”
Kitty is a mother and a wife and has incorporated her family and eldest daughter into her business. She allows her to assist in cutting fruit and setting up for larger events with the hopes that someday the business can be transferred seamlessly within the family. Many of Kitty’s productions begin at home when an aroma or flavor or sometimes a basic conversation inspires her to create. Those moments have produced fan favorites such as her sweet potato coquito, and her maple bacon old fashioned, to name a few.
When enjoying a cocktail for herself, Kitty enjoys an Old Fashioned or a Moscow Mule.
Kitty On Top isn’t just a name… it’s a mission and she’s well on her way. Once you see the smile, you’ll know “YOU GOT Served!” by Kitty On Top.
