Q & A

Answers to commonly asked questions from the experts on Thumbtack.

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.

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 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.

The bartending services were great. Rob was able to work an additional hour with no problem. Angela, the server, was great too.

Bartender showed up early. Nice guy albeit somewhat inexperienced. However, he made up for it with his enthusiasm. Overall no problems. No complaints.

Wow what a wonderful Engagement Party we had at our home !! Making it even more fabulous was the outstanding bar tending service of Frankie J. We had over 150 people so he brought a back up bartender Carlos who was just as wonderful. People still can't stop talking about the VIP service Frankie J provided. Remembering many family members cocktails and walking around replenishing their glasses through out the night. The service he provided went way beyond a normal bartender for hire. I am so so so happy I chose Frankie J over all the other choices that Thumbtack offered. I will never hire anyone else and I've had many many parties. He was the very very BEST !!!!!!

Had our annual Xmas party with 50+ guests, which I had a bartender who cancelled on me the week of, so I reached out on thumbtack and NBS answered the call. Luke was amazing from the beginning and just made me feel at ease that he was going to take care of our event. He sent out Rasheed, who I can't say enough about. My guests loved him from the time he set foot in our house. Great attitude, mixed amazing drinks and was overall extremely professional. My guests are still talking about him. Thank you NBS for making our party perfect. Would definitely use again and highly recommend.
