We highly recommend that for any waitstaff team, you first and foremost have a leader hired to manage them. Bar Captains and Event Captains will take over the reins of the most important facets of your event so that you can relax while they handle any situations that come up with professionalism and ease.
The next step is knowing just how many of each type of waitstaff team that you will need. Event Bartenders
- Be sure to have at least 1 bartender per 75 guests when you have a partial bar or a wine/beer bar. For a Full Bar, you will require 1 bartender per 50 guests. Event Servers
- For having the right number of coverage to serve food, we recommend 1 waitstaff member per 10 guests for a sit-down dinner event. For a cocktail party, we suggest having 2 waitstaff team members and 1 busser available.
