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.

Craig bartended for a group of 50 for a company party. All our employees were very impressed. He was absolutely amazing and so were the drinks! He took the time to make great cocktails with a large group while keeping everyone happy. Great communication, personality, bartending skills and flexibility. We will definitely use CDE Event Bartenders again! Thank you, Craig!!

Jonathan is quite good in bartending. We had a small get together of about 25 guests and he took care of guest wonderfully. He is very polite and his bartending skills impressed every guest in our party. I would recommend him for birthday, baby shower, house warming parties.

Can't say enough GREAT things about Lexus and Ravin. We decided last minute we needed a bartender for our High School Grad Party -- literally 3 days before. I found Woods Bartending on Thumbtack -- made a request and within 10 minutes had a response. Ravin was our bartender and she was AWESOME! She arrived early, set up, clean up and most importantly took care of our 300+ guests. I wish there were more than 5 stars to give!! I will definitely use them again!!!

We had an event in our home and worked closely with Woods Event Services. We had a bartender and two servers. The event was nice and the evening was seamless with the ongoing support through the evening. From start to finish the evening ran incredibly smooth.

We used Joe's company for our office holiday party. I needed a bartender that could entertain but also come up with a holiday themed menu to make things fun! We were very pleased with the communication and service. Thank you!

Loved the great bar set-up and bartending services. Neiva and Beverly were an amazing team and provided exceptional service. They also were friendly and showed great humor during the evening after we had experienced an outage and strong downpour of rain

I hired Craig as a bartender for a house party of about 25 people. I've never had a bartender before so this was very new to me. Craig was awesome in all aspects of the party. He helped with planning ahead of time for what to buy and a menu. During the party, he went above and beyond. If the bar was slow, he went around and refilled drinks, picked up trash, refilled the food, etc. He really kept the party going and gave me peace of mind during the event. All of the guests were praising him and I agree, he took the party to the next level. Can't wait to work with him again!

Jonathan was very responsive and helpful prior to the event, gave us great recommendations for signature drinks and helped coordinate shopping list. Melody was the bartender for the event and she arrived before the event for set-up. During the event she was great and the guests enjoyed the signature drinks a lot. I certainly recommend Jonathan and Melody and will gladly use them for my next event.

Five stars across the board, and I can't wait to use them again at our next event! Craig had excellent communication and provided me with every detail necessary to ensure a successful event. Kaylee and her husband made an awesome bartending team .... extremely professional, knowledgeable and just a pleasure to be around. They made a great impression on our guests too. Thanks to you all for helping make our NYE party extra perfect!

Winston and his team did a phenomenal job! I called him with a last-minute request for a 50 person party, and he really came through! He sent a very experienced member of his team who worked extremely well with our guests. I can't say enough good things about the event. I had a number of friends at the party mention how cool it was to have a bartender who really knew what they were doing. Hats off to you and your team Winston!
