Mastering the art of bartending with confidence and knowledge


A bartender also known as mixologist or barkeeper is a person who serves soft drinks and alcoholic beverages in a bar. A bartender is a licensed worker who works in nightclubs, restaurants, casinos or private parties. Their responsibilities include knowing alcohol tastes & pairing, making classic & traditional drinks, verifying age requirements, cleaning bar supplies and managing records. 

There are two types of bartenders, one is called Publican and the other is called Speedtender. The former is a normal bartender who works in pubs. The latter works on the busiest nights of a bar like on Friday & Saturday nights.
