Bartending isn’t just a part time job, it’s a career options with many benefits that are unique to the profession. Here are some great reasons to consider a career in bartending.

People Skills

You’ll meet a ton of people as a bartender, and you’ll have to learn how to communicate effectively with all of them. You’ll deal with all kinds of people at the bar, some more friendly than others. Knowing how to work with everyone you encounter will get you far not only as a bartender, but also in life, as good people skills can be applied just about anywhere.


If sitting at a desk from 9 to 5 every day isn’t for you, bartending is a great option. As a bartender, you’ll be on your feet and active for the duration of your shift. Not only does this make for good exercise, it’s great for those who get restless easily. There’s never a dull moment at the bar, so for those who don’t like downtime, it’s a great fit.

Drink Knowledge

Knowing how to make unique and interesting drinks is useful outside of work as well. You can dazzle your friends at parties, and it makes for a great conversation starter.

Potential for Advancement

Like anything in life, if you work hard, you give yourself the potential to advance your career. Exclusive bars and clubs recognize an experienced bartender when they see one. Put in the time now, and you could set yourself up for a gig at a high class establishment.
