    Part-Time Bartending Jobs

    By Contributor

    But among the part-time jobs, the most promising one is bartending. Part-time bartending jobs are well-paid in terms of tips from customers especially from regular patrons.  A bartender is someone who works in bars, pubs, taverns, nightclubs, resorts or hotels and other places related to entertainment or tourism. Bartender is also known as barkeep or barmaid (female). He or she mixes and serves drinks which are mostly alcoholic beverages like beer, liquor, wine, liqueur, cocktails and coolers. For customers who do not wish to drink or non drinkers, the bartender serves water, soda, juice, cola and other non-alcoholic drinks. Aside from serving drinks, the bartender either working full-time or part-time is responsible for taking payment for all the drinks he or she served to customers and those served by waiters and waitresses. It is also part of the bartender’s job to keep the liquor supplies and glassware stocked properly and for easy monitoring and inventory. He or she takes a watchful eye to other garnishes on hand, ice supply and even serve finger foods to customers sitting at the bar area where he or she as bartender is occasionally stationed.

    However, as the bartender works, you cannot directly determine who is doing the full-time or part-time bartending jobs. The best clue is to approach and inquire. But doing part-time jobs as bartender does not make one an inferior in terms of reputation and bar jobs. As bartender, one is expected to deliver the best service in every work shift he or she is assigned. Doing so may attract more customers and probably increase customers’ tips.  But doing part-time bartending jobs does not give immunity to the bartender from suits or liabilities when he or she is not tactful in serving alcoholic beverages. As bartender, he or she must observe rules of the bar and the local law governing drinking. Minors should not be served with alcoholic drinks.  It is same also with those who are accompanying drivers of the customers and those whom the bartender found as drunk.

    Part-time bartending jobs, bar jobs or restaurant jobs are all compensating jobs when you know how to handle customers. Being at the frontline of the bar, you should carry yourself confidently as you do your bartending jobs and wear your appropriate dress with dignity and respect. They add good aura to the atmosphere of the bar. If you want to brighten up the bar with entertainment as you do flair bartending, it is a great plus factor for the customers to keep on coming back and be your regular patrons. Customers expect bartenders to be expert in mixing hundreds of types of drinks in a quick, accurate and in an un-wasteful fashion. Tips from customers come when the bartender is doing well in his or her bartending jobs either as full-time or part-time.
