Favourite Part of the Job | When you’ve entered the flow. Chits, tins, jigger, regulars walk through the door, round build. Wave, shine a smile, garnish, put up on service. Wine opener, glasses and a bottle of Tempranillo. Bar maintenance en route, joke about the friend Nick brought in the other day, pour wine. Quality check martinis for cute guests, slide opener for other sweethearts couple seats down (if they feel like vibing), fill water, grab liquor, take an order, smile. Scan wood, bar maintenance to dish, clear glassware, more chits. Grab tins, jigger. Big smile 🥰
