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.

Janice was wonderful! She was easy to work with on the scheduling. She arrived early to set up and had a bit of a mess to cleanup on our part. She quickly organized the bar and was so flexible, professional and friendly. The guests really liked her and everyone had a great time with her serving. If you are looking for a bartender for your event, you won’t be disappointed. Great bartender!

Roy showed up and set up on time, great personality, made the party enjoyable, and best of all made great drink suggestions and amazing drinks. Everyone at the party enjoyed themselves. Would definitely use Lena’s bartending for our next event. Thanks for a great evening.

Tony and his staff were absolutely fabulous! He surpassed my expectations. My husband and I celebrated our 40th birthday with well over a 100 guests...they were so attentive to our needs! He continuously checked to see if my husband or I needed something to drink. My guests loved the drinks they made and I've talked to several since the party who expressed how impressed they were with the bartenders. He was professional, personable, punctual, worked efficiently, and remained after the party to help us get all of the remaining alcohol organized. I must mention he was very reasonably priced and has a nice portable bar for rent as well. CHOOSE TONY SANCHEZ!
