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.

Reviews for Henderson bartenders
Ryan G.
Jules is a very professional bartender. His communication with me on trying to hire a bartender for our party was professional and very much appreciated. We needed multiple bartenders so we ultimately went with another bar tending team, but his professionalism in communication and follow up on my request was very appreciated. If I need a solo bartender I would definitely hire him!

The bartender was supposed to contact me on a Friday and I never heard from him/her. I left it up to the bartender to call me to see about his/her dependability and glad I did. If the bartender can’t even call me when we schedule a date and time, how can I depend on them to show for my event? Very disappointed

Pat was an amazing bartender! He was quite communicative prior to my event. He helped me plan the bar, talk about specialty cocktails and signature drinks, and timing of service. The night of my event, Pat arrived early; set up the bar and was self sufficient. My guests loved chatting with him as he mixed their drinks. At the end of the night, Pat cleaned and packed up the bar for me. I will DEFINITELY hire him again for future events. I highly recommend Pat for your bartending needs!

I am so happy with the service provided by Roger with Professional & Reliable Bartending! I will hire him again in the future and recommend you do as well if you want your event to run smoothly. His company name is very accurate- he is professional and reliable, BUT he is also fun, organized, a hard worker, amazing with guests/customer service, very experienced in events and bartending, and enjoyable to be around. His calm, positive, upbeat attitude really set a positive tone for our event. I am immensely grateful to have found his company through Thumbtack.

Angel was an AMAZING bartender! We hired her for our family get together and she even felt like she was part of the family! She was super outgoing and such a great person. During the entire planning process she was responsive and supplied a helpful drink list. Angel was truly great and everyone needs to hire her for their future events! Thank you so much Angel!

Me and my wife hired Jules a couple days ago for our wedding of maybe 50/60 people. Best bartender you could ask for, and bartender is an understatement! We had a Italian/Mexican wedding and he went way above and beyond our expectations! First off he speaks 5 languages. He even got up and song a song in Spanish with my wife's grandfather than was sarinating the wedding! He was so good that nobody even drank boring beers we had set out all over, but instead hung out with Jules at the bar for mixed drinks, and by the way we just wanted someone to pour simple regular drinks, but Jules brought all the good stuff to make every drink better!😀 You will absolutely get every dollar worth out of Jules and more!! Thank you so much Jules!! We will have you back again soon because everyone loved you, and we have a lot of family gatherings and parties. You the man!!👍👍👍

Angel was great! All of the guests mentioned how they enjoyed her and liked her personality!! Angel was very personable and willing to answer any questions I had. She even was nice enough to send me a huge list of drinks for me to choose from that included the ingredients so I would know exactly what type of alcohol to purchase from the store. If I ever need a bartender for an event, I will definitely be reaching out to her again!

We booked The Blondetenders for my wife’s 30th birthday party, and it was the best decision. Right from the beginning Mallory had excellent communication, and made everything so easy. She offered recommendations for our party to give our guests the best experience. All of our guests at the party also had nothing but great things to say about the bartenders. They showed up on time, set everything up, and then cleaned up afterwards. Super professional and 10/10 would book again. Best decision we made!

Angela was wonderful. She helped create a bar menu for our event. She included our guest favorite drinks. She also provided me with a well-thought shopping list that helped so much when shopping for liquor. My husband’s 50 Th birth surprise was a blast and Angela took good care of our guest with the open bar. I would highly recommend Angela for a professional and cheerful bartender. We will hire her again in a heartbeat. Thank you, Angela, for helping me so much in our event. Cheers, The Myers.

FIVE STARS!!!!!! I hired Professional and Reliable Bartending for a private party at my house. We spoke on the phone a few times to confirm the arrangements. Roger was quick to return my calls, and gave me great insight as to what supplies to purchase. The day of the party, Roger arrived early and went straight to work. I was busy with other chores. Before I knew it, Roger had a FULL BAR set up in my backyard. The set up was neat and professional. Throughout the night, Roger kept the drinks coming. He made great suggestions, and remembered everyone's drink of choice. The bar was set up outside, but Roger came inside to check my guests drinks. No one ever had to wave to get his attention. Roger was at your side with a fresh drink before you even realized that you needed one! After the event, Roger was a workhorse. He helped with the entire cleanup, not just the part that involved the bar. He was all over the kitchen, ect making sure that everything was being taken care of. Only when he was assured that all was in order did he leave. Do your guests a favor and book Professional and Realiable Bartending for your event. Anyone can make drinks. Roger brings a work ethic and charming personality that will add a boost to your party.
