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.

I used Woods Bartending for my wedding of about 85 guests. I worked with Lexus all the way up until the day before the wedding, and she was super responsive to my questions as well as when I requested phone calls to go over info. The 2 bartenders that served at our event were professional and easygoing which was perfect for our event! Whether it was serving non alcoholic champagne or serving rounds of shots, they did it all. Everyone had a blast! Would hire them again.

David Fire provided excellent bartending services for our party of more than 50 guests. His special recipes and friendliness were a hit with our crowd. Fire's communication and coordination prior to the event were excellent as well. We would not hesitate to retain his comprehensive services (professional bar, set up, promptness, etc.) again.

I can’t say enough great things about this company! The owner is absolutely responsive and listens to what the client needs for each event. I recently had Briana as a bartender and she was trustworthy, fun, attentive, knowledgeable about her craft, and goes above and beyond. There’s not enough positive descriptive words to explain how much my friends and I loved Briana.

Our event began at 7:30 so I was told our bartender would get to our house at 7 to set up. She didn’t get there until almost 8, after guests had started to arrive. On top of that I paid for the package that included mixers, etc… she brought juices but didn’t even bring regular soda water! Thankfully we had a stash of La Croix on hand but isn’t soda water a staple when it comes to mixers?? The icing on the cake was when she told me right at 10:30 she was leaving… She arrived almost an hour later than we were told and we paid for three hours and still left at the time she was scheduled to leave… I expected her to add on some time because of her tardiness but no. Overall not impressed. Will not be hiring this company again. *Let me add… the bartender was very nice so nothing bad to say about that… just not happy with our experience.

Jericah provided bartending services as well as liability insurance for a high school reunion with 175 people and she was great to work with. She came up with an awesome signature drink for our event, helped me figure out what alcohol to purchase to stock the bar, and was so personable during the event, making sure everyone enjoyed themselves. I heard nothing but compliments about the drinks from the guests! I would recommend hiring her for your next large or small event.
