EVENT BARTENDER
Posted August 20, 2019

About You
You radiate warmth behind the bar and bring a positive outlook to every guest interaction. Guests love having you behind the bar so much so that they regularly request you specifically! You’re well-versed in the history, specifics, and production of spirits, wine, and beer and are comfortable sharing this knowledge with guests. You take pride in the details: perfect fresh garnishes, well-balanced cocktails, and a clean work station and bar. That being said, you’re still laid back and ready to roll with the punches as they come in at events (often!) and don’t take things too seriously behind the bar (its cocktails, not brain surgery!). It makes you feel awesome when you do something that helps, enhances, or makes another human’s day.
