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.

Thanks to Santisi Bartending my daughters Quinceañera was a success. Their bartenders were great. They took charge and provided expert, polite and professional first class service. I highly recommend them for your next special event.

Cassie did not communicate accurately about what would be provided. When the Bartender arrived she had only known about the job since the night before and did not have supplies I had expected her to bring based upon my conversations with Cassie. Also, the event was booked much farther in advance so perhaps our scheduled Bartender pulled out last minute but the woman who came was given short notice. She was very capable and kept up well while being cordial and polite. The servers we were sent could not have been better. The people Cassie sent were excellent. These servers circulated around constantly and were so nice to all of our guests. All 3 people who worked for us through Cassie were as good as you could ever want to hire. Thanks!

Marcia was the sweetest, most amazing bartender we could have ever hired for our wedding! She was so accommodating and made our whole day run so smoothly! Her personality is one of a kind, and I could tell she truly wanted to be there to help. Any questions I had she would answer promptly through text or phone calls and it relieved any stress I had. She triple checked to make sure we had everything we needed days before the wedding as well which was really wonderful. She values what she does and truly wants to make everyone's experience as great as possible. If anyone is looking for a bartender, Marcia is the one! No hesitations whatsoever - she is the best. We even received a wedding gift and card which melted my heart. I love her and would have her as a vendor at our wedding a million times over! Thank you so much!!! - Shaina & Alex

I can’t even begin to describe the wonderful evening we had thanks to Marcia. She was the bartender at our wedding and was the absolute sweetest, thoughtful, and kind person. Always made sure my husband and I had a fresh drink and brought some cute bar decor which really made the area stand out and feel so welcoming!! She was early to set up, and one of the lasts to hangout. She even stepped out on the dance floor and had a good time with us! Seriously the sweetest person and such a God sent blessing to be a part of our special day. I can’t explain enough how grateful we are for her!

Anna and Andrew of Triple A Events were true professionals as they provided bartender services during my wedding reception on 10/25/20. Anna was very responsive and engaged throughout the entire booking process in the months leading up to my wedding. She provided feedback, tips, and ideas that would make the event even better. At the reception, I heard nothing but good things about the service provided by Anna and Andrew. I wish I had more time to interact with them that night! I appreciate them pouring our champagne for the toast as well. I want to thank them for making our reception special and memorable! I definitely recommend Triple A Events and hope to work with them again in the future! A++ service!
