Hola everyone, I'm going to call for job to be bartender as student, but I'm little scarred that I won't know how to make a drink or coffee.
Can you just help me out how hard is it, I'll call in some pub, so there'll be probably also a lot of drunk people.

I bartender in college. In my city some restaurants will train a bartnder with no experience. Restaurants are a good place to gain experience because people usually only order drinks off the menu so it is easy to train a bartender on their specialty drinks.
If you want to work in a bar however you usually have to start as a bar back and they'll train you during the slow times if you get in good with a bartender or the bar manager.0

Don't go to bartending school lmao. Everyone in the industry laughs at that. I never was a 'bartender' but I worked at a restaurant called RA Sushi which is a upscale trendy young restaurant that plays house music etc.. I worked there as a barback and I was going to eventually work myself up to bartender but I ended up leaving the industry. Working as a barback is way better experience than bartending school.. I stocked up on drinks. I mixed drinks when it was busy. I served people. I did all the things a bartender does but I was more of the bottom bitch. It's really hard man. You have to be social and you have to be able to handle and remember a lot of things at one. Multi tasking needs to be on point. message me if you got any questions.0
