Please select your hiring need from the options below:
Hire a bartender for a one time event?
In order to hire one of our graduates for your event, you simply fill out the form below about a month before your event. This gives us plenty of time to find you a suitable bartender, but doesn’t require us to schedule an event too far in advance. Please fill out the form with as much detail as possible such as what you plan to serve, what supplies you will have, what you are expecting the bartender to do and/or bring and/or wear, etc. We will locate a bartender (or bartenders) for you. At that point, you and the bartender will communicate directly up through the day of your event. Your agreement is directly with the individual bartender(s). You are not hiring Capitol Bartending School. Capitol Bartending School connects people looking for bartending service with our graduates we do not charge a fee to either party for this service. Expect to hire more than one bartender for larger events or events incorporating detailed craft cocktails as these take longer to prepare. Make sure when you request a bartender that you schedule them at least half an hour before your event starts. This allows for any last minute communications and set-up changes. We card anyone that looks underage. Please tell any guests that fall into that category to bring a valid ID.
The suggested fee is $35/hour per bartender if you allow the bartender(s) to collect tips. If you would prefer not to allow a tip jar, the suggested fee is $30/hour per bartender. There is a four-hour minimum. The bartender(s) are paid directly in cash at the end of your event unless other arrangements are made in advance.
