Q & A

Answers to commonly asked questions from the experts on Thumbtack.

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 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.

Jessica is very pleasant to work with. She’s very professional and easy to talk to. Chasity is a great bartender, all of my guests are happy and provides great feedback as well. She provides great service at reasonable price. I would definitely recommend her and would love to work with her again in the future.

I really wanted to give you a high rating because the process with you leading up to my night was great however the way my guests were treated is not forgivable. The female bartender was amazing and a total sweetheart but Craig (the owner) was very awkward with the tip jar and I lead into the night with a great tip for himself and the other bartender to ensure they got what they deserved so trying to guilt my guests into tipping is not appropriate. Craig also caught an attitude with some of my guests as well on numerous occasions - which made one of them quite upset and she felt like she could not get a drink. Also do not pay him the cleaning fee because it is a waste of your money. He did not clean up anything, my family did. Craig and his assistant high tailed it out of the venue. This is what upset me the most. Overall a bad experience with him on MY WEDDING DAY and I do not recommend using Craig for his services especially on what is supposed to be a happy occasion.

Finesse recently served as our bartender during a birthday dinner for my husband. She was affordable, easy to communicate with, and arrived as expected on the day of the event. As we were making plans, I expressed my desire to host a mixology class where guests would learn how to make my husband’s favorite drinks. Finesse worked with me to create the drink line-up and provided me with a shopping list to ensure we had everything necessary to bring my vision to life. During the dinner and mixology class, Finesse was friendly and interacted with the guests. Throughout the evening, Finesse made amazing drinks that satisfied us all. She was also a great instructor as she led us through the steps to mimic a few cocktails. To my surprise, she cleaned up as she went and even loaded the dishwasher before she left! All of our guests enjoyed the experience and are asking us to host another dinner party soon. And when we do, we’ll definitely request Finesse to serve as our bartender again!

It was a pleasure working with Pour Decisions. THEY GET 5 STARS. First off, her prices are excellent. When I inquired about her services, she came over to discuss in detail what my husband and I wanted. She even gave us suggestions. On the day of party, she was professionally dressed and prompted. She had everything set up before any guest arrived. Once setup, she welcomed everyone and was prepared to make whatever they wanted. For me, I don’t drink, but she made me a non-alcoholic drink that was to die for. In the future, if I ever need bartending services, I WILL CHOOSE POUR DECISIONS.
