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.

Excellent experience! Gabriel provided both a bartender and DJ for my son’s wedding. The staff arrived early and were very attentive to our guests. The DJ was amazing, got our guests dancing. He even taught us some moves! Our bartender prepared delicious drinks! I highly recommend!

Best decision I took. I hired Luxul Bartending for a small birthday party. He was on time, professional and my guests loved him. I definitely recommend and will hire again.

Having a bartender at my party was SO worth it. No one goes to a party to make drinks besides like a vodka soda or beer so this was an added bonus. Everyone enjoyed the champagne cotton candy. She poured us shots and really got us going. Make sure go by their shopping list - it’s super helpful. The extra $25 bar was good because then it really looked like a great set up. I want a bartender at all my parties now :)!!

Chelsey was simply amazing and such a pleasure to have at our small event. We had her provide both food service and bartending and all our guests couldn’t be happier with her. We’re excited to have Chelsey back to our home for our ALL future events. 🥂

Katkyn and her team did an amazing job at my girlfriend’s birthday party. She provided catering and bartending services. My guests were all extremely happy with the quality of the food and they made some great cocktails. I will certainly use Katkyn and her company again for future events.

Thank you for providing such a great service at the last minute. When my other bartender pulled out at the last minute, I was in a panic. Thankfully Hot Shots came through and saved the day. I will only use Hot Shots from here on out. I’ve also referred you to my brother for his pool party. Thank you again.

I contacted Nahlin within the week of my sisters baby shower and she was quick to respond, but also accomodating and professional. The guests loved every single drink that was made. Nahlin and Bryan are absolutely amazing and you can not go wrong with booking them for a party. Im having a party in November and they will be my go to bartenders for sure. Thank you so much guys!! The guests were so happy with your service. See you soon ;)

I hired Carmen as our bartender for a party at my house on Jan 14, 2023. I was impressed from the beginning, from our 1st phone conversation. She was punctual, set up everything quickly, was very professional & personable and had fun with my guests. We all loved her and her drinks were awesome. I don't think there was a drink request that she couldn't handle. I would 100% use her again and recommend her to anyone!

Jackie was the bartender for my husband's 50th birthday party. We had about 70 guests at a casual but elegant affair. Even though they were slightly late due to a highway accident, Jackie was very professional and jumped right in, and all my guests were very impressed and kept asking me where did I find her so I told everyone about Thumbtack. Jackie told me exactly how much liquor, mixes, garnishes to purchase and I did not run out or have a lot of leftovers. She mixed a signature drink for the ladies - I highly recommend the Tequila Sunrise. Thank you Jackie at Exclusive Drinks.

To everyone looking for a bartender, look no further. Barbara and her team were AMAZING. Absolutely wonderful people to be around and party with. We had so much fun with you all. She gave me so much attention even before my big day. No matter how many times I needed her she was always able, happy, and willing to help any way she could. And again, her staff was a team of friendly, awesome people who worked so well together. Everything was a success! Thank you again to you Barbara, and your team. We appreciate you so much. This won't be the time last you hear from me!

Rhonic and his partner were nothing short of amazing. They went above and beyond to help me host an exceptional engagement party. The communication from the very beginning was by far the best. He was very attentive to my needs and communicated with me multiple times to ensure I had everything that I would need for the part. They offered to bring additional items like food warmers and help with set up and food serving, duties that were beyond what was requested. My guest had a blast and loved the drinks they made. I feel like they were a part of my family. I have already requested them to be a part of my wedding celebration in the south FL area. Please consider booking them for your bartending needs. You won't regret it.
