Lively rooftop restaurant and cocktail lounge.
Barbacks are the support team for bartenders. They focus on stock and clerical tasks so the bartender can concentrate on making drinks. Barbacks play an unsung role in optimizing the customer experience. Barbacks work directly with the bartenders on their shift, taking direction from the senior bartender.
Barbacks have to be strong and have good physical endurance, as they have to lift kegs and be on their feet all day. They also need to be able to switch tasks smoothly and thrive in a fast-paced environment.
- Change Kegs as Needed: Barbacks need to have a certain amount of physical strength to lift full kegs and carry them from storage. Need to know how to properly tap a keg.
- Clean and Restock Glassware: Glassware from the bar is washed and restocked by the Barback.
- Open and Close Tabs: Barbacks open and close tabs for customers so bartenders can focus on the customers who are still ordering drinks. This requires a working knowledge of point of sale software.
- Retrieve Drinks for Bartender: Support the bartender as needed during busy hours. Clear out empty bottles and glasses from the lounge area.
- Keep Beer Cooler and Liquor Shelf Stocked: When the stock of liquor or a certain beer gets low, it is the Barback\u2019s responsibility to restock the beer cooler and liquor shelf.
- Prepare and Restock Garnishes: The limes, lemons, oranges, and other garnishes for beers and mixed drinks are prepared by barbacks. This duty requires manual dexterity to safely handle kitchen knives.
- Alert Bouncer of Problematic Customers: During down times, barbacks provide support to the security team by monitoring the crowd for any signs of unruly behavior. This is an especially important duty at nightclubs and college bars.
- Manual dexterity \u2013 to change kegs, fix drain clogs, and clean glassware
- Basic mixology \u2013 although bartenders make most of the drinks, barbacks need to know how to mix the most common drinks so they can help during busy times
- Social awareness \u2013 to feel the overall \"vibe\" of a crowd and identify trouble before it happens
- Teamwork \u2013 barbacks and bartenders work as a team and must have good communication to keep the bar running smoothly
- Prioritization skills \u2013 there is no one to tell barbacks what to do when things get busy; they use their prioritization skills to complete tasks based on urgency and importance
