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.

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.

Reviews for Hollywood waitstaff
Jinwi G.
Annie was AWESOME! If I could send her out of state all my friends were throwing parties I totally would! Annie and Judy arrived on time, and we’re ready to get to work. They were professional, intuitive, creative, they were everything that you needed in your waitstaff and more! She comes with a plethora of experiences all of which she will use to try to elevate the quality of your event! You need not have any reservations about hiring Annie and her staff. I hired annie for a private sit down home dinner party very elegant very professionally done. My guests loved her, she was interactive dress professionally and did things that I did not even think to ask her to do however took the initiative to do. She took pictures, made my salad, made appetizers, helped clean up! The most important aspect of this evening was that I was able to enjoy my guests and spend time with them instead of being in the kitchen because Annie and Judy were able to manage everything without me having to go in there to help them! I was more than pleased by the services rendered by Annie I will absolutely positively be referring her to other people and will absolutely positively use her in the future. Thank you Annie and Judy for an excellent experience that I will always remember! We will most definitely do this again soon!
