Cory B. says, "I recently had the pleasure of attending a dinner party hosted by Christiann, and it was an exceptional experience from start to finish. The evening began with a delightful cocktail hour featuring delicious appetizers, setting the tone for the rest of the evening. We were then ushered into a cozy, intimate setting for a five-course meal that surpassed all expectations. Christiann's culinary skills were truly impressive; each dish was expertly prepared and showcased fresh, local ingredients. What stood out the most was her attention to detail. From the thoughtfully curated cocktails to the perfectly matched wine pairings, every aspect of the meal was meticulously planned. The atmosphere was warm and inviting, making it easy to relax and enjoy the company. It was evident that Christiann put a lot of thought and effort into ensuring that everyone had a memorable evening. In a city known for its vibrant food scene, Christiann's talent truly shines. Thank you for a truly unforgettable evening!"See more

Patricia B. says, "The Velvet Bar Fox is the bartender you need to book. I hired her to bartend a fashion pop up for Dstryr in DTLA. 200 people attended . She and her team were flawless . She arrived on time and and her partners were ready to go . We went with a signature cocktail and a lemon drop or water. They poured continuously to the crowd and simultaneously catered to the Dstryr , his team and VIP guests . The drinks were fresh and the Velvet Fox, Tricia and the bar back were friendly , professional and nothing fazed them. Before the pop up we discussed drink choices and she provided me an easy to follow shopping list . We chose not to decorate but it was an option. The Velvet Fox would be a great addition to any function . The next time we have an event we will for sure book with them again ."See more

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.

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.
