Most bartenders learn the trade while waiting on tables or attending bartending
classes. You'll need the basic equipment and your handy recipe book to start
off. Other than that, a good listening ear and friendly disposition helps. Most
of the time, your clients will arrange to have the beverages ready for you and
your staff. You'll need to know a basic repertoire of drinks and cocktails,
although most bartending schools teach hundreds of recipes.
You've got to know the "professional ethics" of the trade and know
when to politely decline a customer who's had one too many. It's important to
remember though, that they're adults and you are just there to provide a service.
Being attractive can be a plus when it comes to getting jobs, but it can also
be a minus when customers get too friendly, especially if you're a lady bartender.
This is part and parcel of the bartending trade and you'll learn how to nicely
deflect customers advances when they happen without offending anyone. At the
end of the day, about the only thing you'll be high on is probably the smell
of money well earned!
