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.

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.

Michael was awesome, drinks were great! As the bride, he made sure my glass was always full. We couldn’t have asked for a better bartender! From start to finish it was smooth sailing! Thank you Michael for making our wedding day that much more special.

I hired Kitchen’s Portal to serve as bartenders for my husband’s surprise 70th birthday party. I had never hired a bartender before and absolutely could not have been more pleased! Junior is the owner of Kitchen’s Portal and, obviously, takes his work very seriously. He contacted me on a consistent basis during the party planning process, easing my mind regarding details. Junior even sent me a complete shopping list (a total no-brainer for me, for which I was very appreciative). I had to pick up a few things at the grocery. For the alcohol, I went on-line, ordered from Total Wine and had it all delivered. Junior was at the party venue ahead of schedule and set everything up perfectly! He made me look like the hostess of the year! And all I had to do was follow his shopping list! I will most definitely choose Kitchen’s Portal again for an outstanding experience. I really can’t recommend them highly enough! My guests are still commenting on the exceptional bartenders at the party. Kitchen’s Portal is a sure thing. You will not be disappointed! Oh, and they packed everything up at the end of the party, with very little clean up on my part! Superb service and great drinks!!
