Behind The Taps: How To Become A Bartender

 

Chuckz asks: How do you become a bartender?

It varies by what type of bar you are applying at, whether it is upscale, the local hub or a dive bar. Some places like to see a fancy certificate from a bartending training course. Others prefer a good attitude and a drive to learn and improve. Often the manager will have you start out as a bar-back or bouncer if you have no experience, and make you prove yourself. Even I was a bouncer (ha) and a bar-back at one point. At some places you may get to skip this step with your looks, but it sucks a lot to just be thrown to the sharks without wading into the water first.

You have to then demonstrate your ability to work well with the customers and show that you can multitask. A good bartender can make several orders at a time while taking another order. No one likes a slow or rude bartender.

You could take a bartending class if you want but making the drinks is the easy part.  Someone is always making up new drink concoction. Also having the ability to put up with a lot of shit and keep a smile on your face is very important. Bartending isn’t a cakewalk and takes a certain kind of person to be an effective bartender. A good bartender treats all clients with respect without letting them walk all over you.

My favorite type of bar to work in is a dive bar. The biggest scariest looking motherfucker is usually your best regular and treats you well.

I find that a little flirting and feistiness can take you pretty far tip wise. Remembering your customers’ favorite drink will win you points.

This week’s drink recipe: Grass Gorilla

First poor a citrus flavored vodka in the bottom of a glass (preferably a chilled glass). Fill with your favorite ice cold cheap light beer leaving a finger or two of room at the top for OJ. It may not sound delicious, but it’s a great drink to sip as your brunch beer and packs more of a punch.
