Our Barbacks arrive to the pre-scheduled job site before service begins. They help other bar staff stock the bar area with beverages and food items. They also refill ice coolers, stack glasses and/or plastic cups and make sure that Bartenders have access to boxes of napkins, straws and cocktail sticks. Depending on the event they may be asked to set up tables and chairs and assemble table decor to maximize customer experience.
Throughout service, they remain close by to assist Bartenders when they run out of things like ice, glassware/ plasticware or alcoholic/non-alcohol beverage supplies needed to for bartending services. After the end of service, Barbacks sweep and mop floors, (if the event is located in-door) (if located outdoors bar back assists with picking up any waste spillage in the working bar area), sanitize tables and clean up any remaining glasses/ plasticware from around the bar.
What qualities make a good barback?
A good Barback should have the ability to work as part of a team to maintain excellent bar service. They remain calm under pressure, which allows them to stay focused and organized on busy nights of the week. They prioritize cleanliness, which means they help their employer uphold health standards for their building.
Barbacks may need to be physically fit to lift heavy kegs, glass bottles and boxes. They also need a degree of physical stamina because they spend most of their shift on their feet. Barbacks should demonstrate organizational skills by maintaining a well-organized counter space. This helps Bartenders to easily retrieve supplies throughout service.
Who does a Barback report to?
Barbacks typically report to Bartenders but they can also report to the Bar Manager if they have questions or concerns.
