What Do Bartenders Get Paid?

Bartenders make money both by a low hourly bartender wage, but mostly by receiving tips from happy patrons. Therefore, your earning potential is essentially unlimited. If you are a good bartender, with the skills and knowledge to really work the crowd, then you earnings will certainly fall on the higher end on the scale of bartender wages.

The Average Bartender Wages

According to the BLS (Bureau of Labor Statistics, part of the Dept. of Labor) national statistics, the average hourly bartender wages (including tips) is $8.54/hour.

The central 50% of earners made between $7.53-$10.98/hour, and the highest 10% of earners made an average of over $14.93/hour.

Like waiters and waitresses, bartenders employed in public bars may receive more than half of their earnings as tips.

Service bartenders often are paid higher hourly wages to offset their lower tip earnings.

It is also worth noting that job prospects for certified professional bartenders are excellent, and the field is growing. Especially in a recession, bars continue to make a good profit and it is one of the few job sectors that can be positively affected.
