Why Should I Hire A Bar Consultant
Hiring bar consultants to write bartender training manuals is common within the hospitality industry. Owners realize bar consultants deliver non-biased professional opinions. Unfortunately, thousands of bar owners continue finding new ways to fail. They fail due to lack of knowledge, understanding, and commitment.
I've worked with the nations most successful nightclub management companies and bar owners. including; Pure Management Group in Las Vegas at Pure, LAX, Pussycat Doll Lounge, Noir Bar, Tangerine and Coyote Ugly. Rehab pool party at the Hard Rock Hotel and Casino and for Eva Longoria at Eve nightclub in City Center. High volume Vegas nightlife forged me into an operator then I became a bar consultant.
As both an operator and bar consultant, I'm certain of two things. Bartender training manuals are worthless when written by someone oblivious to the relationship between drink making and profitability. Buying a bar does not make you an operator. It makes you an owner. Are you an owner or are you an operator?
Operators are masters of balance. They balance drink making and profitability by writing bartender training manuals. Mastering balance requires more than bar knowledge. It demands understanding and commitment. Lack of knowledge, understanding, and commitment.lead to failure.in the bar business

Hire A Bar Consultant
Ownership is not enough. Bar knowledge is not enough. Knowing what to do is not enough. Operators impart systems and procedures by writing bartender training manuals, Bar manuals written by operators articulate vision, create accountability and outline expectations. Owners lacking bar knowledge, understanding and commitment find themselves trapped between chaos and anarchy. Fueled by exhaustion, frustration, and unfulfilled expectations, owners realize they didn’t buy a bar. They bought a job. if you’re an owner with no operating systems, hiring a bar consultant will make your job much easier. Contact us to become a client.
