It's cool to get behind the scenes and get a feel of what it's like to bartend. It's far more difficult then most people give credit. Like being a teacher, you have to constantly be on your toes, prepared, know your stuff, serve well and maintain a positive attitude through ups and downs, and incredibly important for successful bartenders, be able to relate to everyone who comes through your door. But it can also be very rewarding. If your interested in getting in on the action and learning some bartending skills you can online. It's generally difficult to get your foot in the door, so do some self training and research before approaching owners. They'll will be much more impressed with your initiative and likely to look past your lack of experience. http://www.Bars-and-Bartending.com is a complete FREE online guide to becoming a fantastic bartender.
