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.

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.

I have hired Anthonys Bartending for several events. I do not even bother to get quotes from other bartenders now that I have used Anthonys Bartending, they are all I need! They are punctual, professional, more than fairly priced, and just plain cool! They add that special something to every event. Heather Decker’s catering will be using Anthony’s bartending for every event!

It was an absolute pleasure to work with Genesis Bartending! Jeffrey took the time to listen to my vision and ensure he tailored their services to what I needed. Not only was Jeffrey extremely professional, but he was as excited for my event as I was. And most of all, he provided great service to each of my guests. I would recommend and would hire again! Thanks Jeffrey!!!

Ahmad bartended my daughter's wedding at an outdoor event at a local church. There were approximately 85 people in attendance. I assisted Ahmad for approximately 15 minutes during the initial rush for the bar and after that Ahmad handled the bar alone for the remaining 4:45 hrs. Ahmad was on time, had great ideas for serving and was very professional. I would hire Ahmad again for my next function.

Anthony was phenomenal! Him and his partner were punctual, extremely friendly and professional! I absolutely loved that Anthony took the time to create a menu including our drink options for our guests to see with ease! Also, my guests couldn’t stop talking about how great and fantastic Anthony and his partner were! I highly recommend having Anthony as your bartender at your next event!
