Ready to be a London bar work Hero?

Think the smooth running of the bar is the bartenders’ jobs? Think again. Because as any London bartender knows, the bar back is one of the most vital bar staff roles there is. So how can you make the role your own?

What makes a bar back a Hero?

Anticipation: Experienced bartenders don’t become experienced bartenders without having a quality bar back in their corner. For you, anticipation and organisation are your greatest weapons. You don’t have to be told when the ice is running low, when the garnishes need replenishing or when there’s a backup bottle needed over by the optics – you spotted it and sorted it ages ago.

Experience as a bartender: You may not be the member of the bar staff team responsible for serving the drinks, but if you have the know-how and the ability to step in at the last minute, you can make yourself even more valuable.

Know your team: It’s one of a bar back’s greatest challenges: how do you anticipate the needs of your bartenders when you’re a temporary worker who doesn’t know how they work or what they expect? That’s where communication comes in – with the right interpersonal skills, you can build the relationships that ensure you’re up to speed and making a real difference, fast.
