Q & A

Answers to commonly asked questions from the experts on Thumbtack.

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.

They were awesome! They bartended our wedding and we couldn't have been happier. They were super easy to work with and answered all of my questions quickly. Everyone at our wedding had nothing but good things to say about them! Their price was great, the drinks were delicious, and their service was awesome! Highly recommend!!

Razz Bartending provided bartending services for my wife and I during our Christmas party in our home this year. I was initially a little hesitant because I had never heard of them and they did have many reviews on this website. However, they arrived on time and were well-prepared. Julian and Marcela had just constructed a new bar that was smaller than the one they usually have for events and was able to accommodate our smaller space. The drinks were quite good and consistent but what stood out to me the most was a simple quality that seems to be lacking in so many people within the service industry today -- customer service. I could clearly see that Julian and Marcela were willing and eager to do whatever was needed in order to provide a high quality service and ensure our guests' needs were met. We asked them to stay longer at the end of the night and they were willing to accommodate us - Marcela even picked the winner of our human Christmas tree contest. I recommend their services and will certainly keep them in mind for future events!

5 stars does not do the service provided to me and my wedding guest justice. Me and husband loved working with Casey. I started seeking a bartender for my wedding and didn't know what to do or where to start. She made me feel comfortable with the whole process and provided me with step by step instructionsand was always there for us if we had any questions. She was so professional and kind to everyone. I wish I was able to provide more stars to her service because she deserves much more. We loved her service and look forward to working with her again.
