   OED and Merriam-Webster have 1836 for "bartender."  It's here under "bar tender."  There are some earlier "bartender" hits, but they looked (from the article titles) like the usual APS misdirections.
   I have to do this, because it's now the OXFORD ENCYCLOPEDIA OF AMERICAN FOOD _AND DRINK_.

   15 May 1830, SATURDAY EVENING POST (American Periodical Series online), pg. 2:
    He stated in his defense that the liquor was sold contrary to his orders by his bar tender; who has since been discharged his service.
