Julia's Blog about Event Staffing /April 9st, 2022 / ~ 8 minutes read
Do you have a big event coming up soon and you need to find the best event bartender in NYC? There are tons of talented bartenders in NYC, but finding them isn't as easy as hiring someone off of the street, off of a job board, or using a friend's recommendation. You need assurance that the bartenders for hire in NYC that you are considering employing, are skilled, professional, competent, and trustworthy.

Event Bartender Makes Your Party Unforgettable

Everyone has their favorite spot to get a drink with their friends after work with their favorite bartender. Bartenders make or break a bar and the same holds true for parties! You want to be sure that you are hiring someone who is not only talented and experienced but who also possesses a magnetic personality to really make people feel comfortable and welcome and have a great time.

Not only does their personality create the event magic, but their mere presence elevates your parties' rave reviews. Big or small, even the most intimate of events, say a birthday party, can greatly benefit when you hire a bartender. Your friends and family will be thrilled that it's not the same cooler in the corner of the room that they pluck soggy and peeling labeled Corona out of. They will be proud that you actually created a full-fledged event with professional bartending services for them.

5 Traits of the Perfect Event Bartender in NYC

Here are the TOP 5 traits that make the perfect event bartender in NYC. These are tried and true and absolutely necessary when looking to hire a bartender for a party.
Time Management Skills
You need someone that can manage time as efficiently as possible. They will need to create the drinks for your guests, while not ignoring your other guests' requests. It's a lot of multi-tasking, which means really knowing how to keep the speed of service flowing effectively.
People Skills
Your bartender must be someone who can talk to anyone, and handle any kind of situation that can develop. People often share their life stories with the bartender, and having someone who is charming, a good listener, and above all, patient, is a great asset to your bar space.
Great Drink Repertoire
A bartender needs to have a solid craft where they already know the standard 20-30 popular cocktails that most people request when they go to the bar. This means knowing how to make a Cosmopolitan, standard Martinis (Gin, Vodka, etc.), Margaritas of many flavors and styles, and many more.
Professional Behavior
You need to be able to depend on this person to show up on time, be ready to get to work, know what their general responsibilities are, and be receptive to direction if need be for your event. The last thing you want is a no-show to your event by your most important staff member
Flair Skills
This can come in handy for special events to really give your guests a show and some entertainment. It is more for events where timing is not that important, as creating drinks using flair and flipping bottles can obviously slow the speed of service. But it is a great attribute to have in a bartender if you really want to impress your guests.
