Bartending is an ideal career for part time job and for someone that wants to enjoy their life. If you are a “social” person that is young at heart and mind bartending is the ideal way of making friends, meeting new people, nurturing existing friendships – a truly fun job.
You’re basically working in an environment that allows you to be social, enjoying and sharing a smile. Whether you work in a bar, a restaurant, a nightclub your interaction with clients will be totally different. Since, when working in a restaurant you are mainly going to be preparing drinks for the waiters that are giving you the orders, unless there is a stool bar in the restaurant and they’re also serving clients. When working in a bar of a nightclub you are going to be preparing drinks for the direct customer. In a nightclub there are usually several bartenders per bar so there requires talent to ascert that every customer at the bar is being served. There’s obviously not much talking in a nightclub, it’s mostly taking the order directly from the customer, then preparing the drink, followed by serving and finally closing them out or opening a tab. So very little time to be chatting, it’s a totally different environment, still fun but way less social on a busy evening. Obviously, on slow nights in nightclubs and restaurants, clubs like private clubs you will definitely striking conversations. All in all, indeed one of the most fun jobs.
