    How to Become a Bartender

    About six months ago I decided to become a bartender out of the blue. I was a server at time and made a decent amount of tips, even though I wasn’t really good at it yet. It was a seasonal job and I knew bartenders could make more tips than servers.

    Secrets Every Bartender Knows and So Should You

    Depending on what day, most bars are always crowded with drunk and loud individuals. Especially if it's a tight bar, things can get messy and unorganized. The weekdays are nothing compared to the weekends, because almost everyone has the next day off from work—which is an excuse to drink heavily the night before. But I'll admit, the bar scenes are usually the best time—especially if you're drunk, of course. When the majority of people are drunk, they become the happiest and nicest people ever. They'll start talking to you like they've known you for years. And you know who gets to watch everything from the front row seats? The bartenders.

    How Hard Is It to Become a Bartender?

    Believe it or not, there's a lot of work to do in order to actually become a certified bartender. Yes, this means attending bartending school to become an amazing bartender who studied in mixology and the art of liquor and spirits.

And once you've received that certification, it's time for you to go out there into the real world.

    Being a bartender is one of the few jobs where you get to cash in on your personality and also show your knowledge of booze. In the case of a dive bar, you don't really need to know much about liquor or beer to make a good bartender.

    The Best Mixologists in the World

    Bartenders are basically artists. Everything they do is a form of art. From mixing drinks to decorating each glass, bartending is a form of art and it's definitely not easy to master. That's why bartenders must graduate from bartending school or an online bartending school to gain the profession. No one can simply "mix drinks." Bartending is a serious thing.

    The Weird Sh*t That Bartenders Have To Deal With

    I’ve heard it said that, "at some point in life, everybody works behind a bar," and I for one think that everyone should.

With low wages and typically unsocial working hours, the only real reason for anyone to be a bartender is either because they really do enjoy it, or because they don’t know how to do anything else…
