If you want great service in a bar, you should be a good customer. That doesn’t mean you need to go there often. It means you should do a few things that get the bartender’s (positive) attention. If you annoy a bartender, you won’t get great service, especially if the place is busy. Here are some hints…

#1 Tip when you order your first drink. That will get the bartender’s attention, and get you remembered when it’s busy. The term “Tips” was originally¬†an abbreviation for “To insure prompt service.”

#2 Know what you want to order. A busy bartender won’t have time for you to make up your mind. They’re under a lot of pressure to move quickly.

#3 Don’t ask the barkeep to go easy on the ice. It won’t get you a stronger drink. If you want more booze, order a double. It’s usually cheaper than two singles, anyway.

#4 Don’t wave money, yell or whistle. Bartenders are people. You’re not calling¬†your dog.
