Bar Rules for the Brainless

JULY/AUGUST 2016

Hollan Smith

We’ve all been there...you walk into a crowded bar ready for a fun night with friends until you come across some jerk who doesn’t have common sense. Unfortunately, some people have not been taught how to properly act in a crowded bar or club scene. Make sure you’re not one of them by following these tips for bar etiquette. Try them next time you’re out and see how much better of a time you have. Happy drinking! 

It only takes one person to buy rounds
Why crowd the bar even more with your whole group when each of you can buy different rounds. The tab can be settled later, but if it doesn’t, then it’s time to get new drinking friends. 

Don’t ask what is on tap
Your eyes are meant to see, duh. Put them to use and you will see the beer on tap right in front of you. I know, sometimes you can’t see the taps; so just ask for the beer menu to save the bartenders and other guests’ time. 

Tip more than you should
Can we get a round of applause for the bartenders and servers out there? They have to put up with a lot of unnecessary fools at the bar, so remember the golden rule when you are closing out, treat others the way you would want to be treated.

Know what you are going to order and don’t make it complicated
Let’s face it, the majority of the time you order the same thing at the bar. But if youare feeling crazy and want something different, drink your Dzolddz drink first while deciding what new, enticing drink you want to try out. Out with the old, in with thenew right? 

Bars aren’t soundproof
I know once you’ve had a few drinks, you want to tell your friends what happened to you last night. But, unless you want the bartenders knowing what crazy nonsense you’ve been up to, then just keep your dirty little secrets to yourself. What happens at the bar doesn’t necessarily stay at the bar.
