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.

Erin did a wonderful job bartending our wedding event! She was on time, kept a smile on her face and made sure everyone had a drink in their hands. She dealt with a sizable crowd very well on her own and we would certainly hire her for any future events where we need a wonderful bartender!

Everything about Melinda & her service was fantastic!! We had a reception with 300+ guests, a tighter than ideal space, & an a/c that couldn't keep up, so having nice cold drinks and a bartender with a great attitude & smile was awesome. We would hire Melinda again & will recommend her!

This was my first time using Maddys Kocktails and I will definitely use them again! I hosted a birthday pool party for my husband and had Helen as our bartender. She showed up early, made great drinks, had a smile on her face the whole time and was so nice and personable with all our guests. They also created a personalized sign with signature drinks to go with our theme. Highly recommend 💯

Debbie and the Domestic Affairs team did a great job!! They bartended for two parties for us in the same day. They were punctual, friendly and willing to lend a helping hand whenever & wherever it was needed. They also anticipated problems and solved them before they happened (for example, bringing drinks to seated guests so they wouldn't have to get up to refill drinks at the bar). The end result was two parties that went smoothly, lots of happy guests, and very happy hosts!
