I am in the process of creating a world, and recently built a community lot as a bar. I noticed there wasn't a bartender when I visited during the game, is there a way to hire one, or will one just appear?

Yeah, sometimes it takes some time. I've made a few bars/lounges and once I get out of build mode it usually takes several Sims hours for them to appear. At first I just sat there and waited but finally I decided to concentrate on other aspects of the game and come back in a few hours (Sims time) and the Mixologists were there.
Thanks for the responses. I also noticed that my Sim was unable to dance on the dance floor because it indicated there was no music. I bought a stereo and it was on during the time. Is there anything special I need to buy/build to use the dance floor?
I think Mixologists will only appear at the bars that came with Late Night (the three square wide ones), although I could be wrong.
As for the Dance Floor it should work with any stereo (as long as it's on and playing music in the same room) as well as with sims playing musical instruments. I think the main thing is that the music has to be playing in the same room as the Dance Floor (your sims should probably be getting a moodlet indicating they are enjoying the music when in the area), so make sure you don't have any obstructions. For example, if you have the Dance Floor fenced off then it'll probably count as being in a room of it's own and won't get the benefit of any stereos outside of the fenced area (even if they are right next to the fence). There may be a few other situations where a Dance Floor is counted as being in a different room even when it looks like it should be in range of the music.

Just for anyone else that has questions about this. I created a Dance Club for Isla Paradiso and the mixologist showed up at 10pm simtime. Just make sure the lot is labeled as a bar/club in Edit Town mode.
P.S. In my studio I have created Showtime Venues for Isla Paradiso, so feel free to check out my studio.
