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 Traveling Bartender was the Perfect Complement to our Event! They were helpful before the event, arrived early to the event, brought all the promised materials/supplies, and had a great attitude! The guests loved the bartender and the drinks were beautiful & delicious. The glowing blue bar and back bar was definitely a hit! We highly recommend hiring The Traveling Bartender.

Marie bartended our 80s party in October and she did a great job. She was very professional and very helpful. I would recommend her to anyone who needs to hire a bartender.

Paul was extremely helpful, communicative and professional, as were the bartenders he sent to bartend my wedding reception. They were so great, I just wanted to be friends with them! An hour or more into the reception, we ran out of the necessary mix for our margarita machine (different vendor), our bartenders were on top of it, offering to make a similar drink with what we had and made sure that the bride and groom tasted it first before they served it! Brilliant! Will definitely hire again if ever I need another bartender!

We really enjoyed the bartender at our party. He was friendly and accommodating. Lots of people called the next day and said that they loved the idea of having a bartender and that they enjoyed their drinks. He even helped us clean up afterwards. I'm planning another party this summer and will definitely use your services as well as the same bartender! Thank you so much.

Curly Bartender has my highest recommendation. I scrambled to replace a bartender who was unresponsive as my wedding date approached and Curly Bartender was professional and friendly from the beginning. She not only responded quickly, but also checked in when appropriate. The Curly Bartender had a thorough contract that gave me peace of mind and protected both parties. She prepared well for the event and provided all supplies needed. She even made a drink menu, taking that task off my list. Our guests loved her energy and she was extremely pleasant and engaging.

I hired National Bartender Staffing for a charity event on 9/26/15. Paul (the Owner) was awesome. He responded to emails promptly, provided proof of insurance, and was very professional. The bartender (Brittnee) showed up on time, looked great, acted appropriately and did a fantastic job. I highly recommend using this company. A+
