Bartending can be a fun job that earns good money. But it's also a serious endeavour that attracts professionals who know that bartending can be a serious and fulfilling career; not just a summer job or means of post-grad income.

Bartending For Dummies Epub Bud


Not all bars are created equal. And so, not all bartending jobs are alike. There are different skill sets that lend themselves better to certain bartending environments than others. A bartender that is fast and efficient may do better and enjoy working a high volume venue that a bartender that treats cocktails as a science.

At the other of the bartending spectrum from club bartenders, you'll find mixologists. While the term was en vogue for a few years, it's become more of an ironic qualifier for bartenders that focus on creating craft cocktails. A mixologist doesn't just mix classic cocktails, but looks to create whimsical concoctions that push the boundaries of what most bar guests have seen before. Mixology requires a lot of research and study to really understand ingredients and the creativity to inventory new drinks.

Bartending at a restaurant requires a skillset that resembles a server's skillset. If you're bartending at a restaurant, you'll usually be asked to do one of two jobs: Service Bartender or Well Bartender.

Is your goal to find a bartending job immediately after completing the course? That isn't always easy, bar owners and operators may prefer job applicants with actual bar experience. If your goal is to learn basic skills for bartending and then are happy to take a job as a barback or server, then you will probably have more success.

A course on bartending can provide you with a great knowledge of cocktails, an understanding of how a bar operates, and some other important information like pour sizes and beer and wine knowledge. But what bartending school cannot teach you is what it is like to actually work in a busy bar alongside co-workers.

One of the most difficult aspects of bartending is maintaining composure and consistency in a busy bar environment. Handling customers, communicating with co-workers, making drinks, and staying organized is a very difficult to teach in a course.

That's why many bar operators prefer to hire bartenders with actual experience behind the bar. But if you're still interested in bartending school, there is a path to becoming a bartender through a course. Find a school that offers job placement.

Doing independent research is a great way to learn about bartending and alcohol. There are two broad categories of books you can check out. One is more instructive and the other is historical. Instructive books would include cocktail recipe books, or focus on wine varietals and production.

Depending on your location, you should attend tastings and seminars or classes about bartending and alcohol. If you're in or nearby an urban area, seek out events that feature knowledgeable speakers.

We covered the different types of bartending above, and while it's great to have a broad skill set that makes you more marketable as a bartender, it's also great to really focus on one area of bartending that you love.

The reality of being a bartender means that you are dealing with customers who have been drinking, or really want a drink. This can create awkward and tense situations where a customer may need to be confronted about their behavior and state of sobriety. When answering situational questions, it's important to provide anecdotal experience of how you responded to a similar situation in the past. If you're interviewing for your first restaurant or bar job, then you might not have faced the exact situation you're being asked about, but sharing a story about a comparable situation is the best way to illustrate that you can handle the duty of bartending.
