Why should I hire a bartender?
Let’s face it, hosting a party is a lot of work. Between preparing food, greeting partygoers, and making sure the bar is fully stocked, it can be difficult to find the time to truly experience the party. There is nothing worse than waking up the next day and feeling like you didn’t get the chance to say hello to family and friends or sample any of the hors d’oeuvres. When you hire a bartender, you are able to be a guest at your own party. Allow Platters Catering & Events to make that possible. We promise to keep your guests’ palates satisfied while you mingle, relax, and have fun!
Does Platters Catering & Events offer after-party clean up?
You bet. Having hosted our own parties in the past, we know that the last thing you want to do at the end of the night is clean. Before leaving your Cambridge home, our bartenders will be sure to clean up the bar area.
Are your bartenders certified?
Yes, Platters Catering & Events carries both general and liquor liability insurance and all of our bartenders are either TAM or TIPS certified.
Do your bartenders wear uniforms?
Certainly. Clad in a professional uniform, our bartenders are sure to give your event a sophisticated flair.
How many bartenders should I hire?
To give your guests the utmost level of service, we recommend hiring 1 bartender for every 50 guests. However, this number is only a rule of thumb; our event planners trust that you are the best judge of your family, friends, and colleagues. If you do not expect a long lineup at the bar, numerous bartenders may not be necessary.
Which bar package should I purchase?
There are a number of things to consider before deciding on a bar package. Before we are able to recommend a bar package, we first must know how many guests will be in attendance and your desired budget. Once we gather all the necessary information, our staff will gladly provide you with recommendations.
