Hire a Cocktail Bartender Wellington


Once we book The Cocktail Society what happens next?

Once we have confirmed with you our booking, we get straight to work. We will collaborate with you to come up with a cocktail menu for the night. Once the cocktails have been confirmed we will give you a shopping list of all ingredients and alcohol required. We are experts in knowing how much you will require of each ingredient and we will ensure we make this as easy for you as possible. 

Are you available for hens parties and stag dos?

Absolutely! Our cocktail classes are a great option for such events! We not only specialize in bachelorette parties or bucks nights – we are also available for many other events. Including birthdays, weddings, private events such as: housewarmings, launch parties, corporate events. 

Do you supply the cocktail equipment?

Yes we do! We bring all of our own cocktail equipment- including cocktail shakers, ice scoops, straws, measurers, muddlers, strainers, chopping boards, knives and stirring spoons. 

What are we expected to provide for you?

We are incredibly adaptable bartenders and can work with any space. Generally we require a decent bench space or table at waist height and access to a sink. Also required are guests who are ready for a great time! If you’re unsure about your space then send us a message to find out more.

How long can we book you for?

We have a minimum hire of 2 hours of service. Otherwise it's really up to you how long!

We recommend 3 hours of service for 15 or more people, this means everyone will get a fair amount of cocktails each and no rushing needed.

How many people can we hire you for?

One bartender can serve up to 20 people. For events larger than this we require additional bartenders or waitstaff. We've done events of up to 200! Get in touch to find out how many staff you’ll need for your event.

How many cocktails will you make?

We recommend having up to 4 cocktails on offer for the night. That way your guests won’t get swamped with choice. We recommend choosing classic cocktails such as Mojitos, Cosmopolitans, Margaritas, Rosebuds etc. Recognisable cocktails that your guests will love!

Will you serve beers and wine too?

Of course! Any beverages supplied by you will be gladly poured by The Cocktail Society! Although “shaking and making” cocktails will be our priority.

Can you supply the alcohol and ingredients?

Unfortunately, we can’t. We cannot supply any alcohol to you as we do not have any of the relevant off licenses to provide alcohol for sale. We are offering a bartending service only.

Also by letting you do the shopping- it saves you money too!

Do you travel out of Wellington?

We certainly do travel out of Wellington! Our bartenders are happy to travel for cocktail events and classes. We have had events in Kapiti, Otaki, Palmerston North, and the Wairarapa including Martinborough, Carterton and Tauherenikau. 

We love what we do and we hope to work with you soon!
