Bartender for Hire NYC

If you're planning a party, having a reliable bartending service is a must! Fortunately, finding a top bartender for hire is not an impossible task when you're working with professionals!
Among the Top Event Staffing Agencies NYC
Julia Valler Staffing has earned its place as one of the top event staffing agencies in NYC. Since being founded in 2013, Julia Valler Staffing has a 98% customer retention rate with many long-term, satisfied partners who have been with us almost since the beginning.
Types of Events
We are proud to provide bartending services for both corporate and private events including: banquet, cocktail party, grand opening, wedding, private party, fund raiser, corporate event, media event, anniversary, home party, baby shower, and others.
Building a Successful Bartending Team
For best results, we advise choosing a Captain to lead the team of bartenders. For a partial bar you will want one bartender per 75 guests; a full bar, requires one bartender for 50 guests. If you are having drinks served at your party, we are also able to provide servers and bussers.

Additionally, we can handle the rental of a beverage bar and supplies for mobile bartending; we are happy to help you book all rentals that you will need beforehand quickly and efficiently.

We recommend hiring event staff as soon as you know the date of your event. However, we are able to assist with last-minute requests.
Our Advantages
Here are just a few reasons why Julia Valler Staffing has earned its place among the best when it comes to event staffing.
We provide personable, professional, and trained staff
We are very careful about the type of staff we hire- only about 5-10% of our applicants are brought onboard. While hiring, we vet all potential employees based on past experience, behavior, and professionalism. This means that you are guaranteed high-quality bartending services whenever you work with us.

Our easy and convenient online casting system allows you to easily choose exactly which bartenders you want working your event. We have plenty of staff to accommodate gatherings of all sizes. Our online casing also features photo options, so you know not only what but whom to expect ahead of time.
We are proud to provide insurance for our staff, which means that you don't have to worry about covering our employees if there is an incident. Unlike other staffing agencies, we hire all of our bartender as W-2 employees; we take on the liability for our employees so that you have peace of mind in case anything goes wrong.
Account Executive
When you work with Julia Valler Staffing, you aren't just working with excellent staff, you're also partnering with one of our highly trained account executives. Our account execs are trained to help you make the hiring process go as smoothly as possible and are happy to answer any questions.
Working with an established company means peace of mind
With nearly a decade of experience in the event staffing business we know what works and what doesn't. While newer companies may still be figuring out their infrastructure, we have an established plan of action to help give you peace of mind.

The party bartenders can stay if they are available. Please confirm with your event captain or team leader. You will be billed post event at the same hourly rate.
Can I pay the bartenders directly for any extra time?
You may not pay the bartenders directly. All payments for bartending services must be made through the office. You will be sent an updated invoice post event for your final balance.
Will I be reimbursed if the bartenders are released earlier than originally agreed upon?
Should you release the bartenders before the 5 hour minimum you will not be reimbursed. If you confirmed the bartenders for 7 hours and released them after 6 hours, for example, you will have a credit of 1 hour on file to use for future requests.

The bartender will not come with any supplies aside from a wine key. Should you need any rentals for the bar, we can coordinate this for you through our third party rental vendor. Please let your account executive know and they can handle accordingly.
How many bartenders do I need to hire for 100 guests?
The amount of bartenders may vary depending on the amount of bar areas, drinks to be served and type of event. Generally, we suggest hiring one bartender for every 50 guests but we suggest discussing your event details with your account executive so that they can suggest the proper amount for your event.
How can I pay for hiring a bartender for an event?
You can pay for hiring bartenders by check, cash, credit card, or bank transfer.

Our bartending event company will be happy to accommodate any custom requests.
What are the uniform options for party bartenders?
You may view all the uniform options for party bartenders here.
What if my event runs longer than I hired a bartender?
We try to accommodate any changes or client requests. Should you require additional bartending services time please speak to the Captain or your Account Executive.
What if something runs out?
Generally, this is not the case as we provide everything in excess when you hire a bartender for event. However, if most of the guests tend to drink the same beverage it is possible that we run out of it. There are two things we can do about this.
1. If you are aware that your guests have a certain preference, please let us know so we can plan accordingly.
2. If you are not sure about their preferences and something runs out we can do an additional delivery. To request additional delivery, please inform the Captain and the Account Executive. Please note, the price will not change based on the fact whether or not you request a redelivery.
What if more guests than originally planned arrive to the event?
Please inform the Captain and the Account Executive, so they can determine if additional liquor delivery is required. Please note, your invoice will be adjusted to reflect extra guests regardless of whether or not additional delivery is required because the beverages are supplied in excess and more alcohol will be consumed if the guest count increases.
Will I be able to keep the liquor that was not consumed during the event?
Our bar packages are based on rate per person per hour, not based on consumption. The liquor is supplied in excess and will be picked up at the conclusion of the event.

Julia Valler provided our team with 3 bartenders for our annual holiday party of 250 guests. All women were incredibly professional, knowledgeable, and helpful. They were able to learn their way around our office quickly, keep a neat bar, and interact with our guests in a friendly manner.
