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

Hi Ashia, what was your thought process behind starting your own business?
I knew at a young age that I wanted to be my own boss. Once I started bartending and became good at it, I knew I could create a business from my passion. Drinks are an important part of an event so we promise to show up and show out every time.

Alright, so let’s move onto what keeps you busy professionally?
Drinks by Ashia is all about making an impression on the guests. We go above and beyond in taste and presentation so people will leave remembering our drinks. We started doing local events for people that I knew and from there, we expanded into the business we are today. Starting my own business has definitely taught me that things won’t always be easy but it’s worth all of it in the end to see the smiles on our clients and their guests faces! Drinks by Ashia is a mobile bartending business that will literally bring the party to you!

Let’s say your best friend was visiting the area and you wanted to show them the best time ever. Where would you take them? Give us a little itinerary – say it was a week long trip, where would you eat, drink, visit, hang out, etc.
I would take them to downtown Atlanta. The aquarium is definitely a place you have to check off your list if you’re in the city. The Ferris wheel is nearby and would be our next stop. You can see a clear view of the city from the top. After that, I would take them to eat at Ray’s in the City for some luxury dining to end the night.
Who else deserves some credit and recognition?
I would like to shoutout the Castle at Wildwood Gardens. They are a wedding venue located in Waco, Georgia. Jessy Devere and her crew have went above and beyond to support and promote my business to their clients. I appreciate all of their hard work and extremely thankful to be on their vendor list alongside other amazing business owners.
