I tend bar at a dive Bar, a high end restaurant and a hotel. I work 6 days a week and love it.
Showing and voicing my opinion about the daily trials and tribulations of Bar Life. Why read this? ‘cuz you’re bored or your interested. Really doesn’t matter now does it?
Trust me, we see things a WHOLE LOT DIFFERENTLY from this side of the counter. Everything about ‘us’ isn’t all free flowing tip jars and crazy clothing with phone numbers flying everywhere. The life of a bartender; the great tips, cleavage/muscle shirts/flirting, and how no night or day is ever like the last.
But what happens behind the scenes? Prep work, clean up, drama between days/nights customers, MAJOR drama between co-workers, shift schedules, mind clashing managers and of course, the customers. We LUV our customers – you’re the reason we come into work. Thank you for never making our job feel like one.
