National Bartender Day

National Bartender Day

The job of bartender is not the only occupation that has a designated day. National Bartender Day is a day that encourages customers to reflect on the outstanding service they receive while serving pints and mixing drinks. It also focuses on their amazing people skills, such as listening and talking to others, and being someone to confide in.

Bartenders have evolved over the centuries from simply pouring pints or shots to becoming therapists. Today, bartenders are most well-known for being the people you can talk about your troubles and enjoy a cold beer. There is no better therapy than this.

National Bartender Day was founded in America by the drinks company Sailor Jerry. They want to spread awareness of the day worldwide and have recently created a petition asking the British government to make National Bartender Day a recognised holiday in the UK.

They argue that bartenders are more than just mixing drinks. They offer quiet support to customers who are struggling and make them feel that someone cares about their situation.

The brand organizes voting competitions to determine the nation’s top bartenders and makes regular bar visits to distribute pizza, clothing and taxi rides home to bartenders.

You have many options for how to celebrate this day. But, all boil down to one thing: show appreciation and gratitude to bartenders who made your evening more enjoyable by listening to what your thoughts were when no one else would.

You can decide how to make this happen, but remember that it doesn’t have to be a grand gesture. It’s the thought that counts. Even a simple visit to your bartender can make a difference.

Enjoy a couple of drinks with your bartender and a few laughs. In fact, if you have a bit more time, you could reverse the typical bartender-listens-to-frustrated-patron scenario around and ask your bartender if there’s anything he or she would like to talk about.

This may seem a little surprising at first but it could make for a great evening. Bartenders, like bartenders, are human beings just as their customers. They experience problems in their daily lives.

They deal with financial problems, sicknesses, and divorcing. Sometimes they wonder where their lives are headed just like everyone else. This approach might lead to a fascinating discussion that may help you see your life and relationships differently.

In today’s world of social media, everyone wants the world to see them. However, the wisdom that we can gain by listening to others might seem overlooked.
