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.

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.

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.

We called a week before our party and Karina had a bartender available to do our party. Karina was very easy to deal with and very professional. She came to our home a few days before to understand the set up and make sure everything went smoothly. Our bartender Natasha was on time and made great drinks. I highly recommended using their services for any party in need of a bartender.

I hired Adreana at the last minute since my previous bartender never confirmed and she was great! She showed up right on time and served the guests exactly as I asked her to. I will be calling her again when I need a bartender or server. I highly recommend her! Thanks again!

Guilia absolutely made our party the best it could possibly be! She is truly an artist behind the bar! My guests raved about each and every drink she crafted. It was so much more than a bartender pouring drinks, she made it an entertaining and delicious aspect of our party. I am getting texts/calls from guests letting me know how much they enjoyed having her there! I highly recommend her! Thank you Guilia for all of your attention to detail and hard work! I will never hire anyone else to bartend!

Natalia was a true find! We were so thrilled from the moment she accepted our bartending job for our home party. She communicates well, showed up and served the best drinks! She worked with me to create signature cocktails for my party and she made sure everyone was happy! I would hire her again and recommend her to everyone. Thank you Natalia and thumbtack!

Everett was an excellent bartender. He arrived early and worked very efficiently. Very great personality. Very personable. All the guest thoroughly enjoyed Everett. He made sure all guests were served promptly and constantly checking on all the guest to refresh their drinks. At the end of the night he made sure the bar area was well cleaned and all trash picked up. We definitely will use Everett our next event.
