Frequently Asked Questions At Bartender Chicago

How much does it cost to hire one of your bartenders?

Our talented bartenders are available for hire at a competitive rate of $50 per hour, with a minimum engagement of five hours to ensure the highest quality of service for your event.

While this minimum is a standard part of our offering, we’re flexible and open to accommodating unique needs for events within Chicago city limits.

For events outside Chicago, please note that travel time may be added to the total cost. Our team is dedicated to making your event exceptional, and we’re always willing to discuss how we can best meet your specific requirements.

Do bartenders need time to set up?

Indeed, our bartenders do require some setup time to ensure that your event’s bar service runs smoothly and efficiently. This setup time is an essential part of our service and is included in the billing.

We typically recommend allocating at least 30 minutes for standard setups. However, for events requiring more extensive preparation, such as icing down products, crafting unique cocktail ingredients, or arranging a more elaborate bar setup, we suggest allowing up to an hour.

This preparatory time allows our bartenders to create the perfect environment for serving drinks and ensures that everything is ready to provide your guests with an exceptional bar experience as soon as your event begins.

Do bartenders clean up after the event?

Yes, our bartenders are equipped to handle not only the serving aspect but also the cleanup after your event, ensuring a seamless and hassle-free experience for you.

The extent of cleanup services provided by our bartenders can be tailored to your specific needs. While they are prepared to manage the bar area, including the disposal of used glassware and maintaining a tidy service space, we can also accommodate scenarios where a full cleanup is not required.

Our priority is to provide flexible, top-notch service that aligns with your event’s requirements, whether that involves comprehensive cleanup or simply focusing on delivering exceptional drink service.

Please feel free to discuss your specific needs with us, and we will adjust our services accordingly to ensure your event is a resounding success.

Does Bartender Chicago provide alcohol?

At Bartender Chicago, while we specialize in providing expert bartending services, we do not supply alcohol. However, we are committed to assisting you in every step of your event planning.

To this end, we offer comprehensive guidance on selecting the perfect alcoholic beverages for your event. Our experienced team will provide you with a carefully curated list of recommended alcohols, quantities tailored to your guest count, and even suggestions for cocktails based on your preferences.

Additionally, we can recommend trusted local businesses that deliver alcohol, ensuring you have a convenient and reliable source for all your beverage needs.

This approach allows you to have full control over the selection and cost of alcohol while benefiting from our professional expertise to make your event a memorable one.

Do we have to purchase your mixer package or rentals in order to book your bartenders?

Booking our bartenders does not obligate you to purchase our mixer package or rentals.

We understand that every event is unique, and our goal is to provide flexible services that cater to your specific needs. If you prefer to provide these items yourself, we are more than happy to support you in this.

To assist with your planning, we offer a detailed list of recommended mixers and rental items that would complement the services of our bartenders.

This list is designed to ensure you have everything needed for a seamless bar experience, including suggestions for mixers, garnishes, glassware, and other bar essentials.

We’re here to guide you through every step of the process, ensuring your event is a success whether you choose to use our mixer packages and rentals or supply your own.

Our team is committed to working with you to create a custom experience that aligns with your vision and requirements.
