Q & A

Answers to commonly asked questions from the experts on Thumbtack.

How much does it cost to hire a bartender for a private party?

Hiring a bartender for a private party typically costs between $270 and $390 in total. On an hourly basis, expect to pay at least $40 to $60 per hour, as well as a flat fee. How much you’ll pay, however, depends on the time of year or day, the size of the party and other factors. Get in touch with a few bartenders near you and request a free estimate — it’s the only way to get an accurate idea of how much private bartending services will cost you.

Check out “How much does it cost to hire a bartender?” to learn more about the cost factors.

Do bartenders need to be licensed?

Certain counties, cities and states may require licensing. Check your local government’s regulations before starting your search.

In many cases, you might want to choose a bartender who has a license and/or certification. If you’re considering hiring a bartender for an upcoming event or a special occasional, check their online profiles to find out what credentials they have. If you can’t find the information online, don’t hesitate to ask them directly when requesting to receive free estimates.

How do I find a good bartender?

Put some time on your calendar to research and compare top-rated bartenders near you online. Start by looking at their ratings and services. For example, some bartending services will provide a waitstaff, glassware, ice, coolers, food and more.

Next, look at their photos of past events and read the customer reviews. Find feedback on the bartenders’ services. Did they offer fair pricing? Did they show up on time to set up? Did they bring all of the appropriate drinks, cups, supplies and decorations? Did they interact politely with the party guests and provide a pleasant overall experience? And did they do the agreed-upon cleanup afterward?

Narrow down your top choices, and start contacting the bartenders. Ask for cost estimates for your event, and tell them how many people will be attending, what type of event it is and what services you require. You should also ask them questions about their experience.

Bartenders may need a license in your state, county or city to work at a private party. Make sure they’re properly certified before you hire anyone.

The entire process was easy from discussing options to booking to the day of the event for the actual bartending. I'm sooooooo happy that we booked a bartender instead of doing it ourselves. Even better, I'm thrilled that we stumbled upon this company. We are exceedingly happy with the experience.

Had a fantastic experience with Chris! My first time using thumbtack and I am glad a friend of mine introduced me to this website. Chris was awfully patient and worked with what I had. He came early helped with set up and clean up! Since it was my first time hiring a bartender I couldn't have found a better bartender than Chris. Thank you Chris! Shalini kumar

Daniel was perfect. Made delicious drinks, offers more than bartenders typically do with shopping list, drink recommendations, his own bar, and all the AMAZING materials he brings that he makes himself. He made a hibiscus syrup that our guests were crazy about, and cocktails that people couldn't get enough of. I couldn't possibly have asked for more! Definitely will be using him for future events.
