Kat was a perfect fit for my wedding and I would recommend her to bartend an event of any size and occasion! I was hesitant to commit to hiring Kat initially, as there were not many reviews on thumbtack, but that is not for lack of experience or excellent service, so I want to be the one to start the praises of an excellent bartender and hardworking individual. Kat made sure to assist me before the wedding in helping to determine how much alcohol I needed to purchase and ran the main bar for her entire shift the night of with a crowd of heavy drinkers. She went with the flow and acted as a cocktail waitress during cocktail hour and even took the floor during dinner service to ensure all glasses were full and the crowd was happy! As a busy bride, she made sure my glass was always full and even lent me her mixing glass (which I proceeded to misplace) so I could have a 'large' drink and wouldn't have to keep running up to the bar! I was so mortified when I lost the glass (which I found in the lodge the next morning) that I was afraid to go back to the bar. I felt so bad that she was kind enough to give me her personal glass and I had lost it. When my wedding planner went to the bar to get me my next drink, she told her what happened and how distraught I was and Kat told her to tell me that I could consider it a gift and eased my worries. (Kat, I found it and would love to send back to you!!) either way, she was very kind and an excellent hire for my big day. Dressed professional and service with a smile. Definitely lived up to my expectations and I would recommend in a heartbeat!See more

Q & A

Answers to commonly asked questions from the experts on Thumbtack.

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.

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.
