I used Jessica and her company couple of different times, for different parties I had. I can't imagine using any other company. Most recently, I had an engagement party in the late Fall. We had 60 guests in total. We had a full bar, and a mixed buffet of Italian and Spanish food. I've always set up the buffet and replenished myself. But it was a special day for me so I didn't want the stress. The rental tables, bar, linen glad wear, silverware, etc. was dropped off the day before. She and her team drove in early the day of, to complete the setup. She was very familiar with how to do everything. I was completely confident in her work and her bartenders were really great. We are a drinking crowd. She created a Bride and Groom cocktail. A Bourbon drink for me and a Pineapple and Passion Fruit mojitosfor the Bride. Once the food was delivered, everything was set up and handled perfectly. We had about 10 different hot and cold foods. Plus a ceviche station. Jessica did a little of everything during the service. She helped her bartenders when there was a crowd and helped at the buffet. Everyone on her team were really nice. One waiter made sure to help the few older people in the crowd by personally making their plates for them. At the end of the night she and her 2 bartenders, Elaine and Mick stayed an extra hour. Everything was organized for the rental company to pick up. The engagement party was a success and we are truly happy to have found FYP. We also hosted much smaller parties and it was just as wonderful. If you need party staff look no further.See more

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.

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.
