Wine & Dine catered a Christmas party in our home, December 2019. It was a wonderful success. Jillian and staff were amazing, professional, caring and attentive. The food was outstanding. We had an open bar that was placed in the heart of the house, the bartender was fantastic. There was plenty of food for all. Every one of our guest continued to compliment the quality and variety in the menu. Jillian is so great at tailoring a party specifically for her client - no two parties are ever the same obviously- our party was specifically designed for us with so many very personal and special touches. Our relationship with Jillian and her staff was perfection from our first meeting through our post party clean up hugs. We absolutely recommend Jillian and Wine and Dine for everyone who wants a unique problem free event, dinner or party. They are simply the very best. Our guests are still raving about the wonderful professionalism of the servers and the delicious food. As an added bonus, Wine and Dine cleaned up everything post party and we’re continually checking on the happiness from our guests all night long. Five Stars all the way. I was so busy enjoying the party, I only took a few pictures - but trust me - Wine and Dine is simply the very best.See more

Michael was key in helping me pull off the most AMAZING 50th surprise party for my husband. He was always available and communicated well with me throughout the entire planning process. Also very easily polite, confident and assuring. At the event he went above and beyond what I have seen most bartenders do at other events. Warm, friendly, respectful and knows the art of mixing drinks and pleasing me and my guests. Our guests kept telling me all night how polite he was and that it felt like he was a part of the family. I truly was comforted and basically left him alone to do what he does best. It made my life so much easier to know that he had it under control. He knew where everything was and exactly what to do in terms of how cold he wanted certain drinks to be etc. He even did a special stop for me at Publix on the way to grab last minute sodas and ice because I had ran out of time before the event started. I also want to add that unlike most bartenders he comes with cups, straws, ice and even a bar if needed. I hardly give reviews or recommendations but I can honestly think he is phenomenal. I hope to use him again at any event myself, family or friends will have in the future. Truthfully he deserves 10 stars!!!See more

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.

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.

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.
