From doodle bars and Cocktail Clinics to the intricate neoscience of liquid molecular mixology, The Bartender Hire Company offers a vibrant, revolutionary and innovative enterprise that has been servicing Hen weekends, wedding celebrations and sundry other social events in Bristol and across the UK for over seven years.

Providing by-the-hour bartenders plucked directly from their handpicked selection of flair-trained professionals, this company successfully presents a practical and cost-effective cocktail solution to any Hen night or wedding day. With their range of mobile bars and intelligently-designed packages to suit all, The Bartender Hire Company is rapidly becoming the Southwest region's premier go-to supplier for outstanding and entertaining cocktail and bar services.


Lewis J. Spindlove created The Bartender Hire Company back in 2005 with the vision to deliver top-quality, vibrant and dazzling cocktail service to the common man and woman. Traditionally a service reserved for the elite, Lewis' company was the first in the UK to offer the professional services of a 'mixologist' based on an hourly rate - giving his clients complete control over how much they spend.

In fact, being reasonable with budget is The Bartender Hire Company's key guiding philosophy, as they often work closely both with you and with your venue - wherever it may be – in order to reduce costs to a minimum. It was also one of the first catering companies to positively encourage their clients to purchase their own ingredients - thus trimming the budget even further!

The Service

First and foremost, The Bartender Hire Company provides bartenders (of course!) to Hen nights, wedding receptions and other events in the South West. The company's strict recruitment process requires that their bartenders will be fully trained, have at least four years of industry experience, and have completed a cocktail 'flair' course.

Flair bartending is an internationally-recognised profession that elevates a typical bartender's normal services to the level of entertainment by having them throw and juggle spirit bottles and glasses while creating a range of complex, excellent-tasting traditional and bespoke cocktails.

Hen Nights

The Bartender Hire Company has historically provided their talented bartenders to mix delicious cocktails for quite a number of the region's most exciting Hen nights. The company offers four packages:-

  • The Cocktail Clinic is a Hen weekend must. If you want to learn a little more about creating those yummy cocktails that you love, then just pop along to the company's private Bristol centre bar for a cocktail-making workshop. From £24.50 per person
  • Hire a private bartender to attend your rented Hens' accommodation or your own home. Liaise with your bartender and purchase your own ingredients for a super-cheap experience! From £52.20 per hour + VAT
  • The Twenty-Twenty. If you have 20+ guests, you pay just £20 per person for the services of a bartender for 2 and a half hours, a portable 'doodle' bar, and a selection of four cocktails. A perfect start to the night!

Other attractive options for your Hen-centred festivities include the Pamper Party and the self-explanatory Butlers In The Buff package - get in touch for more information.

Weddings and More

The Bartender Hire Company are also perfect for weddings. Liaising closely with all venues where they operate, they can offer a fantastic and cost-effective service. If you are hosting your marriage celebrations in a location which has no permanent bar, for example a reception-only venue, then the company's fully-licensed mobile bars and barmen would be perfect for you! These highly-trained and flexible bartenders can of course easily operate in venues with pre-existing bars.

Once again, their services can be hired on an hourly basis, and you can provide your own alcoholic and other ingredients if you wish. However, you may be subject to your venue's corkage fee, so enquire first to avoid an unpleasant surprise at the end.

Those who don't enjoy a cheeky cocktail (why ever not?!) will be relieved to learn that these impressive specialist bartenders are very happy to serve other beverages such as beers and wines too, as well as soft drinks for designated drivers and children.

    What a fantastic company with great service from start to beginning. The booking process was easy and Jaidine was extremely helpful throughout and made the booking process easy accommodating to our needs on such short notice. On the night Jamie and Tom were absolutely fabulous, they set up without any hassle and made amazing tasting cocktails all night. Will definitely be using this company again for any future events.

  • Shahidul Miah - 12 December 2017

    This was a fantastic service from start to finish. The pre-party planning service was very helpful and ensured we had all the right things to make the evening a success. The bartender on the night was fantastic. She was friendly, speedy, and most important of all, made amazing cocktails. All our guests commented on how good the cocktails were and how lovely our bartender was. Thank you Jaidine and Alicia for helping to make our party and huge success.

  • Elsie Kinlock

    I booked for my friend's hen weekend and was so impressed - fantastic customer service from Jaidine and Lewis ahead of the event (Lewis even helped me arrange how to smuggle our bartender into the house so he was a surprise for the bride-to-be!) and an easy booking and paying system. Our bartender, Bradley, arrived right on time and was very professional but also fun and relaxed - patiently taking lots of photos for us! Everyone loved the cocktails and I would definitely use this service again. Thank you!

  • Nasrin Kalbasi

    Thank you for creating an amazing and memorable evening for us and our guests!We've now used this company for two of our parties and they are truly amazing. From the moment we contacted the company the team helped us in choosing our menu, the amount of drinks we would require and in providing all the drinks and ingredients. The team always arrive two hours before the party, they set up their bar, drinks, glass wear and garnishes and are ready half an hour before the first guest arrives. Great personalities, super friendly and fantastic drinks. I highly recommend this company.

  • Diane Hammond
