How Many Bartenders Do I Need?

Based upon industry standards and for maximum efficiency of service, we recommend staffing 1 bartender for every 75-100 guests who will be consuming alcohol.


What the Bartender Provides

The bartender will bring all of the basic bar tools to serve your guests including shaker tins, bottle openers, knife, cutting board and even ice coolers to chill the beer, white wine and serve for mixed drinks. The bartender(s) will arrive 1 hour prior to the scheduled start time to set up the bar area and will clean up the bar area at the end of the event. The standard bartender uniform is black pants and black polo shirt. Bartender uniforms may be customized for your event with advance notice.

What The Client Provides

You are responsible for providing all items that will consumed by your guests. This includes the alcohol, mixers, ice and any fruit garnishes that you wish to serve with your beverages. You will also need to provide the cups/glassware and you may wish to top off the bar area with cocktail napkins and straws.

If you are purchasing kegs of beer, you must have the taps for the keg.

You must provide a table or flat surface for the bartender to serve from. If required, we do have a portable bar or table set up for rent to create the perfect bar area for your event!

Bar Set Up

During the 1 hour set up, the bartender is working extremely hard to prep the bar area for maximum service efficiency. They will chill all beer & white wine, slice fruit garnishes and set up the bar station prior to the arrival of your guests and/or opening of the bar.
