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.

Everything about Bar Ro'd is amazing! Nothing to complain about, no hiccups. The service is great, the staff is great, the bar is so beautiful. We even had our bar personalized and it extra flair to the party. They kept the drinks flowing and the guests were loving it. Ro was amazing from DAY ONE with accommodating my needs, making sure everything I wanted would be supplied, and I am truly grateful for her. This was the first time I ever hired professional bartenders for an event and Ro made everything smooth, simple, and don't even get me started on the price...I had to make sure I wasn't cheating her out of money lol! YOU MUST CHOOSE BAR RO'D, best mobile bartending company around!! Thanks for everything! Love you Ro!

My quest and I were very impressed with the bar services provided by With A Twist Of Mixologist Bartenders for my wife 50th Birthday Celebration. They were not only great Mixologists but also very professional and personable to boot. They absolutely enhanced the quality of the event with the drinks and their services. I highly recommend them for any event hosted by anyone. I’m certainly grabbing them for my next party.

Where do I start? We were looking to host our first post-Covid backyard party for our 5 year old’s birthday. In addition to the kids, we wanted the adults to enjoy themselves. T Yeezy was amazing and definitely had a major impact on the overall outcome of the party! People loved him! He’s so professional and great at what he does. We picked signature drinks to serve, but T also served our guests beer and wine that we provided. He brought all his own cups and supplies. I didn’t have to worry about a thing! I never hired a bartender before, but going forward I won’t host a single party without T Yeezy! Trust me, hire him! You will not be disappointed! He’s worth it!
