What is the difference between bartender and bartending?
The terms “barman” and “bartender” are interchangeable. Both mean the same thing. They are both used to explain the role of bartending in the UK but are often used interchangeably in different regions and with different local dialects.
What are the duties of a barman?
Your bartending staff will have many duties over the night of your event, ranging from serving customers with high-quality drinks, collecting payment (if this applies to the event) and keeping the working area clean and tidy, both during the event and after. Bartenders can also serve snacks during the event if you require as well as none alcoholic drinks to cater for attendees that choose not to drink alcohol.
What is the difference between a bartender and a mixologist?
A mixologist is someone who studies the history of mixed drinks and cocktails. Often, they are knowledgeable about the significance of each ingredient and the mixing technique in a drink. A mixologist combines traditional knowledge with innovative ideas to create new cocktail recipes.
A bartender is responsible for mixing traditional drinks in an establishment that serves alcohol. These professionals often take orders directly from customers instead of unique or pre-made cocktail menus. The majority of bartenders are familiar with many types of cocktails, so when customers order a cocktail by name, they may not need to refer to a recipe.
Do I need to hire a bartender for my event?
Hiring a bartender or mixologist for your event will not only provide high-quality service and drinks to your guests but will also add a sparkle to the evening. Our private bartending staff have staffed bars for the likes of Versace, Cartier, Hugo Boss and Harrods to name a few and are both attractive and fully trained with a flair in bartending.
How much does it cost to hire a bartender?
All of the bar staff within our company come individually priced depending on the event duration as well as location. We also take into consideration how far the event is to travel to and how many people the team member will be catering for.
