Important advice for working bartenders – Episode 20.5

A bottle of wine

I may have enjoyed the depth of field more than the wine, but that’s ok.

Another great month with some important advice for working bartenders. We discussed: The guest’s perspective, kicking people out and some mental tools for a more peaceful mind. I wanted to do another quick recap of what we learned so far. After all,  repetition is the best way to remember something. But if you haven’t listened to the past few episodes, make sure you do. We’ve had some amazing guests on the show.

In Episode 17, we learned from content creator and professional bar goer, Hannah Chamberlain, the importance of welcoming your guests and other things we might not have noticed from our side of the bar. In Episode 18, we learned about industry veteran Joanna Lioce’s experience kicking people out of one of the oldest bars in San Francisco. And in Episodes 19 and 20, I shared some mental tools that help me stay even when dealing with challenging guest interactions, including compassion for others and remembering that this particular situation will pass.

Check out this recap in the player or wherever podcasts are found. There’s a lot of great advice for working bartenders in there that you can use on a daily basis at your bar.  We have some great stuff coming up too, including an episode about personal finance, so be sure to hit subscribe and stay tuned for that.
