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

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.

Reviews for Hermosa Beach bartenders

We hadn't decided which bartender to go with until the last minute. Tony completely accommodated our needs. He gave us a detailed shopping list based on the drinks we wanted to offer. He even sent a photo of the dress the bartender planned to wear, which fit into the theme of the party. Natalie was the bartender and she was efficient, professional, and smiled a lot. The drinks were fantastic and we all had a good time. She helped clean up and the end of the evening, and organize the remainder. It really made the evening great to have a pro making the drinks. Thanks Tony and Natalie!

When your guests all make mention of how wonderful the bar staff was you know you have chosen well. Curly Bartending provided excellent service, starting with a nice looking and professional setup. They were on time and worked hard throughout the entire event. Both were dressed well, friendly and engaging with all the guests. Their drinks looked high quality with beautiful garish on all cocktails. Tannaz's communication before and during my event exceeded all my expectations. I am very meticulous person who likes things to be a particular way. So I can be considered hard to work with. Tannaz took all of my inputs and included them without question and only offered suggestions that made things even better. I rarely feel that there is no room for improvement when it comes to any type of customer service but I could not think of any input I would give Curly Bartending; 5 stars across the board. I appreciate their wonderful service and would recommend them to anyone.
