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.

Lauren was amazing. She went above and beyond for our wedding. She took the initiative and was doing things that I didn't even think of. If I am ever in need of a bartender I will definitely be hiring her again. She went above and beyond our expectations! Her personality was great and she was great with all of the guests!

Asha is OUTSTANDING!!! She is by far one of the best bartenders I have had the pleasure of working with. Asha traveled from Dallas to my venue in the country of Weatherford TX, she even showed up early to set up and have everything ready and in place to serve our guest perfectly. My guests enjoyed conversating with Asha as they were refilling thier drinks or just taking a break from the dance floor. We kept our drink selection simple but Asha went a step ahead and used her mad skills to spice up the mixed drinks. I can tell you without a doubt that Asha went above and beyond what was expected of her, she even dressed to the theme of my wedding!! Her work is amazing and I plan on using her for every event I host in the future. Asha, everybody from the wedding absolutely loved you and they complimented you to me. Thank you so much for being part of our special day..... and plan on seeing us next Halloween for our Anniversary Party!! - Richard & Tiffany G.
