You Will Need
- A neighborhood watering hole
- And an easygoing nature
Pick a small bar
Think pub, not club. You want a place that is small enough for you to be noticed.
Befriend the workers
Make friends with the people who work at the bar.
Meet the regulars
Meet the other regulars. You want the bar to become your home away from home—a place you can go to watch the game when you don’t want to be alone.
Tell your bartender your latest jokes rather than your newest problems. You’ll distinguish yourself from the customers who come to cry in their beer.
Don't talk too much
Know when to just kick back and take it all in, rather than chatter incessantly with the staff or other regulars. You want to be a barfly, not a bar pest.
Don't get drunk
Don’t get drunk. If you’re like most people, too much liquor makes you more obnoxious and less entertaining than you think.
When in doubt, tip better. This is the fastest way to a bartender’s heart.
