The Sims 2
The base game includes bartenders as service NPCs that can be hired to tend a bar on a residential lot by using the Services menu on a telephone. University introduced a second type of bartender that appears when a bar is placed on a community lot. If Open for Business is installed, these bartenders will only appear if the bar is on an unowned community lot.
Sims can form relationships with both types of bartender. However, FreeTime changed telephones so that the base game bartenders will not appear in a Sim's phone directory. Both types of bartender can be asked to move in, or can be married. If that happens, the game will generate a replacement.

Bartenders are known as mixologists in The Sims 3, and were introduced alongside the mixology skill in Late Night. In addition to serving drinks, mixologists are also able to serve food to Sims as well. When somewhere in the world a mixologist bar is presented, one of the random chosen homeless Sims get assigned the role of a mixologist to tend the bar.[confirmation needed]
The Sims 4
Bartenders (called mixologists like in The Sims 3) can be found at all pre-made bars, nightclubs, lounges and karaoke bars [TS4CL]; and they will also appear at restaurants[TS4DO] if a bar is placed in one. Each venue has a maximum of one mixologist working in it at a time, regardless of how many bars there are. If there are multiple bars in a venue, they will choose a random one to set up at the start of every shift. Sims can order a variety of drinks and snacks from a mixologist.
