If you have ever considered a career in bartending, the first question you probably contemplated was money. How much does a bartender make in a night? Well, unfortunately there is no one answer. It varies and depends on a number of different factors, including location, bartending skills, and experience.

  1. Location: As you can probably imagine, where a bartender works has a huge effect on a bartender’s earning potential. For instance, a bartender Ruth’s Chris Steakhouse can make as much as $500-$600 per night, while a bartender at TGI Fridays or another chain restaurant can expect to earn $200-$250 per night.
  2. Bartending Skills: The better you are at your job, the more likely it is that you will earn more in between wages and tips.
  3. Experience: Professionally trained bartenders are more attractive to employers and can more easily land jobs at higher-end restaurants.
