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.

How much should you tip wedding bartenders?

Sometimes, a gratuity is included in your final bill. If not, consider tipping your wedding bartenders between 10% and 15%. However, this is not a set-in-stone rule. You can always tip more, perhaps 20%-25%, for great service.

What do bartenders cost for a wedding?

It costs roughly between $270 and $390 to hire a bartender. However, if you need a wedding bartender, you should request cost estimates from bartenders near you. Depending on the drinks you plan to serve, the number of guests and other factors, your total cost will vary.

There is virtually nothing bad you can say about the this team - they are beyond responsive and Victor, our bartender was the highlight of our party! Our friends had a BLAST because Victor did such a great job of taking care of us. Victor showed up with plenty of time to prep the bar (which was gorgeous BTW) and made sure we were good to go right at the top of the hour! Do yourself a favor and bring your party to the next level with Kitchens Portal!

I cannot say enough on how great Chris & Amanda were at my party. Once I realized I had so many guests that I needed help, it was less than 5 days before my party and I had no hope of finding a bartender. Well, fortunately I found Beck 'N Call and my prayers were answered! Chris contacted me right away and told me everything she could do to make my party an event, and we proceeded to make a plan. After I decided what I wanted, over the next few days whenever I reached out to them with questions, they responded right away. They sent me a detailed list of everything I would need to supply. On the day of the party, they gave me status updates on their ETA so my stress level was alleviated. Upon arrival, they put together one of the most incredible set ups I have ever seen at any party! My guests were blown away by the sight as well, but we were all blown away by Chris & Amanda's professionalism, and also their ability to bring so much fun to my party! For me, they weren't just my bartenders, they were an integral part of the success of my party. I will definitely be hiring them again! Thanks Chris & Amanda!
