We’ll turn your party from meh to memorable with the best professional bartenders in the business. Keep reading to discover why hiring a private bartender will be your best decision for your next event.

What is a Private Bartender?

A private bartender is a skilled professional who prepares drinks and gives guests a memorable experience. A private bartender has formal training in mixed drink ratios and will quickly provide various specialty drinks without hesitation. They are skilled in pouring drinks with precision and flair. Unlike regular bartenders who work in establishments, private bartenders provide personalized and on-demand service.

Why Should I Hire a Private Bartender for My Events?

Having a private bartender at your party can enhance the overall experience. They can create themed cocktails to match the event’s vibe, customize drinks for individual guests, and provide quick drink service throughout the night. Most importantly, a professional bartender will serve drinks responsibly. By delegating drink service to the pros, you’ll be able to enjoy your time with your guests rather than handle cocktail services yourself. 

Of course, the most important reason to leave bartending to the pros is that licensed bartenders are trained in responsible alcohol service. BarMasters also carries liquor liability insurance that is required by most venues.
