TendedBar Raises $5M in Series A Funding

Photo by Max Mia – TendedBar is the first fully-automated bar and cocktail service. It is leading the self-pour revolution serving REAL mixed cocktails, beer and wine in less time and more efficiently than any other bar service in the world.

TendedBar, a Jacksonville, Fla.-based automated bar service, raised $5m in Series A funding.

The round was led by BASE Capital with participation from Platform Ventures and private investor Craig Musgrove, of Dallas, Texas. As part of the funding round, Stephen Raggio of Viewside Capital and Kevin Kelleher of Platform Ventures, joined TendedBar’s Board of Directors.

The company intends to use the funds to continue growth into 2022 and launch numerous national concert, entertainment and sports partnerships.

Led by Justin Honeysuckle, Co-Founder, TendedBar is a self-pour automated bar designed to prevent loss and improve service to customers, all while providing a drink-ordering experience that’s cleaner and more controlled. The result provides fans with less time waiting in lines, safe access to drinks, less crowding with social distancing and an overall improved experience that serves drinks in seconds.

The raise was bolstered by a season with the NFL’s Jacksonville Jaguars as well as multiple concert, sports and entertainment events at TIAA Bank Field, Vyster Memorial Arena and Daily’s Place in Jacksonville, Florida.
