Hire Bar Managers

A bar is so much more than simply a place to have a drink. When customers choose a bar, they are looking to relax, unwind, and have a great time in a pleasant environment. On a busy weekend, with customers flocking in and placing their orders quickly, the bar manager can be relied on to turn chaos into order. 

Finding the right bar manager fit for a restaurant begins with a job description that’s detailed but not intimidating, fun but not too casual. The role and responsibilities should be outlined clearly, delineating specific tasks and expectations for the ideal candidate. Desired work hours and schedules should be accurately described to avoid confusion. Posting job announcements on social media, hiring platforms, and online communities will help to widen the selection pool. If you want to incite referrals from your employees, a referral incentive can be a useful idea. The right bar manager is out there, they just need to know that you are hiring. 

Bar Manager Responsibilities

A bar manager ensures that the bar’s staff is working efficiently and that operations are in order.  Under the array of responsibilities of a bar manager are: hiring and training of staff, ensuring compliance to food and safety quality standards, maintaining the restaurant’s liquor license, and working with liquor vendors and suppliers. The bar manager also handles schedule organization and monitors employees’ work hours, making sure that the bar can operate at full capacity during peak times. Additionally, the bar manager handles inventory and procurement of necessary supplies in accordance with the restaurant’s budget. 

A bar manager also plays an essential role in creating a healthy work environment and positive bar culture for employees and guests. A bar manager should have a friendly demeanor and be adept at diffusing any tension that may arise. To this end, a bar manager should be able to train the staff appropriately and may need to help step into various roles as the need arises. The bar manager also manages customer complaints and resolves them in a professional and helpful manner. 

Bar Manager Skills and Qualifications

The ideal candidate for a bar manager is a person who has a passion for employee management and customer service. Excellent communication and interpersonal skills are a must as the role involves constant interaction with restaurant staff, vendors, and guests. The ability to think strategically, delegate effectively, and solve problems quickly are also advantageous. 

While most restaurants require a high school diploma or GED, certifications in food safety training and financial literacy may also be requested of the candidate. 

In terms of work background, proven customer service experience acquired in a restaurant setting is important. Familiarity with Point of Sale (POS) and other restaurant systems is a plus. Lastly, the ideal candidate also be open to a flexible work schedule, and available to work in shifts, on weekends, and holidays.

Hiring an amazing bar manager will work wonders for your restaurant. The bar manager sets the tone for a bar’s orderliness, culture, and energy. Not only will they ensure that customers are having a great time, but that these customers return often.
