Bartending

In high demand
  • 29 hires on Thumbtack
  • Serves Saint Louis, MO
I would have to say that my work stands out from the norm for a few different reasons. I can flair bartend, which is twirling and throwing bottles, glasses and more. This is not a very common bar skill to have for the "average" bartender. Few can do it, and usually the ones who do are men. Very rarely does a female bartender ever know how to flair. I would also say that my work stands out because I LOVE to bartend. I never come to work just to get paid. I really enjoy what I do, and I'm passionate about doing it. I truely believe that this shows in my work performance. I would say that these qualities definately set me apart. I love so many aspects of my job its tough to say. I love the fast paced atmospere. This job always keeps you on you toes, and never has a dull moment. I also love the adult interaction and conversations. I get to make some really great friends and contacts at this job. I love to be able to go to my work and completely be myself. Behind the bar I can dance, talk, sing, throw bottles, and laugh. These are not usually acceptable qualities that you can display at most 9-5 jobs. I love it!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.
