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.

Working with Chef Tim was wonderful. We hired him as we needed a bartender for our work Holiday Party, which he was so very helpful and patient. The bartender he sent from his staff, John, was amazing. Chef Tim assured me he was wonderful and he definitely was. John was so friendly and so very helpful. We were very pleased with his service. I would highly recommend Chef Tim and his staff.

Amber was the best! She made the night so easy and helped make everything run smoothly. She helped me make a list for the bar and brought her own bartending tools. Will hire her again!

I was just looking for a bartender and found the best caterer in the county!! Chef Tim far exceeded my expectations. He was responsive, professional, and went above and beyond to make our event special. The food was delicious! Tim's staff was exceptional. We were all impressed and would use Chef Tim again. Oh! And to top it off, his homemade pies were amazing!!!

Adreana helped me on my 40th Birthday party in August. We went over the details on the phone; she was there on time and immediatelly took over bartending duties. My guest's needs were taken care of and I heard compliments on the awesome Margaritas. At the end of the night she even gave us an extra hand with cleaning. She's is a Pro; consider her for your next event. (I don't have many pics of my party, Adreana would you have some?) :-)
