The Goodetime Gals are just what they claim to be: a really good time. Inspired by the years of the past when people dressed up to fly and hosted fabulous dinner parties, founders Cameron Cooper and Lindsey Reynolds started their freelance bartending event company, the Goodetime Gals, in 2011. With their whip-smart personalities and never-ending vintage closets, Cooper and Reynolds have the ability to light up any event. “We like to say we’re hostesses for hire,” Cooper explains. From helping pick a theme to mixing and serving up craft cocktails during the party, these gals are there every step of the way. Cooper’s and Reynolds’ style and aesthetic can be traced back to their families, who strongly influenced them in their love for the fifties and sixties. “We both grew up living in the past,” Reynolds says. “We admire the quality and the class that existed back then. There was a lot more entertaining, too, people having friends over and just cutting loose.” The main goal for these gals is to take the pain out of being a host. “People hosting parties are always worried about mixing drinks, serving more food, and whether a kid needs another juice box,” Cooper explains. “This way, you don't have to [worry]!” With each event, the Goodetime Gals strive to create a truly unique and unforgettable experience. Although, as far as who is having the better time, the guests or the gals, I guess we’ll never know. For more information about the Goodetime Gals, visit
