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.

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.

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.

Amber was absolutely great. She was eager to jump right in. Very friendly and helpful throughout the night. We could not ask for a more professional, charismatic or entertaining and accommodating bartender.

Amber was very helpful in scheduling the event. She answered all of my questions quickly and adequately. I knew exactly what to expect when it was time for the event. The bartender assigned arrived promptly and was very respectful and actually extremely helpful. He asked to help us with several party items outside the scope of his bar tending duties. He was very courteous with all of the guests. Having a bartender at the event really amplified the quality of the event and everyone really appreciated it!

Cierra was our bartender for our Halloween party. Not only did she dress in costume and arrive before her start time, she also brought tools that she might need. She was fun, upbeat and did everything we asked. She was a pleasure. Would hire her again.

Cierra bartended my 21st birthday party, and she was absolutely fabulous. She helped me plan out a menu and was able to make really creative, tasty drinks with what she was given. She was polite, fun, friendly, and had great service skills. I would definitely hire her again!

We had a few bartenders to choose from for our wedding reception. I'm so glad we chose Amber. She arrived early, her drinks were superb, and she remembered my guests drinks when they came back to the bar. I was very impressed and would recommend her to anyone.

We had a retirement party with ~70 guests at The Lake Overholser Boathouse. Great rates for two bartenders for 6 hours. They were highly capable, friendly, good looking and kept our party goers more than satisfied! Their service was fantastic! I would use them again and highly recommend them to others!

We used Amber's Bartending Service for my daughter's wedding. The service is amazing, the whole experience in working with Amber is just great. I was impressed with all the services offered that included beverages like iced tea, lemonade, mimosa's, sangria mix with fresh fruit that was a hit, water, cups, everything you need for a bar. You just furnish the alcohol beverages you want served. They came an hour ahead of time to set up & everything was ready when the ceremony was over. The bartenders were excellent, several guests commented on their service, friendliness, & just how fun they were. They also have the insurance coverage which was important to us. I thought their prices were very reasonable for the services offered. Highly recommend them, exceptional service in all aspects.

I cannot tell you how amazing Amber is! I would recommend her to anyone and everyone! She went above and beyond to make my event special! She was very prompt and professional. Her crew was on time, friendly, and hard working. Trust me when I tell you to hire her, and mark everything beverage/bar related off your list! Don't worry, she will take care of you. She worked with me to create a signature cocktail for my wedding and even had the bartenders wear galaxy ties to go with our theme! I was SO impressed :)
