Think all bartenders for events are much of a muchness? Think again! There’s a whole range of different bartenders for events circa 2023. And their talents extend far beyond traditional perceptions of pulling a pint.

In fact, the idea of bartenders as skilled artisans originated back in the 19th century, when the mixing of different drinks became a thing. But the bartending sector as we now know it has deep roots in the ‘80s, when cocktails infiltrated the mainstream.

Now, there are multiple bartender options to consider for your corporate events and personal celebrations.

To this end, World Bartender Day on Friday 24th February is an opportune moment to take a closer look at the different types of bartenders for events – and how they might fit in to your plans.
