How to source a bartending company in Gauteng

You are hosting a chic event that is going to be attended by the A- list of Johannesburg and you need some fantastic barmen in Gauteng to add that something special. It is best to source a professional from a bartending company but what do you look for to ensure that you get the best?

Freelance barmen companies have been around for a number of years but the key is to ensure that you choose one that is experienced.


Consider the handy hints below when sourcing your fancy flairers:

  • Length of operation – How long has the company been in existence? A reputable company that has been providing barmen to the events industry for a number of years will have plenty of staff on their books and they will provide a professional and reliable service with matching uniforms and skilled staff.
  • What is provided – A bartending companymay only provide the staff while others will arrive with a fully stocked bar and staff compliment. What you choose will largely depend on the venue – if the event is being held at a venue that has a bar, you will only be able to bring in speciality barmen. If the event is being held in a marquee or at a home, then a full bar service is the way to go.
  • The training – Flairers and cocktail barmen require special training, especially those that fling bottles around and mix exotic drinks. If you have an extensive shooter and cocktail list, consider contacting a company that has specialised and trained mixers on their books.
  • The specifics – It is possible to hire barmen to fit in with a theme, if that is required. Some barmen companies can provide a ‘Coyote Ugly’ option, as well as shirtless, buff barmen if requested.

Contact a number of different companies and then choose the one that is best suited to your specific needs. It is always a good idea to outsource the bar to a professional bartending company in Gauteng because it removes the stress of providing enough liquor and accounting for breakages and other issues once the event is over.
