We had the good fortune of connecting with Devonne Leonard and we’ve shared our conversation below.

Hi Devonne, can you walk us through the thought-process of starting your business?
I love everything about bartending: from creating cocktails to the memories made while others are enjoying them. After slinging drinks at private events for friends and family, my own mobile bar service felt like the perfect move. A big bet on myself that was nerve-racking at first but definitely worth it.

Alright, so let’s move onto what keeps you busy professionally?
What sets Low Key Mobile Bar apart from other bar services is our fun, and personal touch. We really take our time listening to our clients and love creating customized drinks based on the event theme. Our most recent event was for a non-profit that does laundry for the houseless community — shoutout to Say It With Your Chest– and we named their cocktails “Laundry Detergent” and “The Washing Machine.” They were the crowd faves.

If you had a friend visiting you, what are some of the local spots you’d want to take them around to?
First stop, Fuel City! Gas station tacos just hit different! Then, we’d probably take a stroll at Klyde Warren to walk it off. Throughout the week, we’re dining at Southern Gourmet Kitchen, Roots Southern Table, and Recipe Oak Cliff. We’ll grab coffee at Soiree, & dessert from Val’s Cheesecakes. We’ll probably swing by The Wild Detectives to do a little work and check out new books. Final stop before my bestie leaves will be dancing the night away in Deep Ellum.

The Shoutout series is all about recognizing that our success and where we are in life is at least somewhat thanks to the efforts, support, mentorship, love and encouragement of others. So is there someone that you want to dedicate your shoutout to?
You know, I actually have a really great support system! My partner, Keilah sees each event from first contact to clean-up the night of. I also have to give thanks to my mom, brother, sister, and best friends. They ALWAYS like/share/repost/comment on posts on social media. If you’re reading this: THANK YOU SO MUCH!
