Bar Staff Cover Letter Uk Example

Dear Mr. Jones,

I am writing in response to the advertisement for a Bar Back at Oasis Bar and Grill as I believe I would be great for the job. I have experience working in the bar at TGI Fridays and have learned a ton about making many types of specialty drinks. If you want a fun and outgoing bar back who can help the bartender with everything, I’m your girl.

I work great with other staff and also have outstanding customer service skills. My goal is to become a top bartender and I know that while I may still be learning, I’ll get there. Already, my knowledge of mixology has greatly expanded and I love learning new drinks.

I plan to attend bartending school next year and would appreciate gaining more experience while working as a bar back. I know Oasis is one of the most popular nightlife spots and I think I could learn a lot. I already understand all of the cleaning standards and correct pours.

I would love to join the team at Oasis Bar and Grill. I eagerly await your phone call to schedule my in-person interview. I can be contacted at any time at my cell number.

Ms. Vivian Kohn
Senior Recruiter
ABC Bar & Restaurant
600 Sunset Dr.
Sometown, HI 55555

Dear Ms. Kohn:

As a devoted customer and fan of ABC Bar & Restaurant, I would jump at the chance to join your team. I applied for the bartender position as soon as I saw your ad on Monster.

A veteran of the hospitality industry, I offer 10 years of experience as a bar-back and bartender within luxury 4-star hotels and 5-diamond resorts. For the past 3 years, I have served as an on-call bartender at DEF Restaurant, a Michelin 3-star-rated gourmet restaurant and lounge within GHI Hotel. Previously at XYZ Resort, I was promoted from bar-back to bartender, where I primarily worked at the poolside Kona Kai Bar.

During my tenure with both employers, my commitment to providing exceptional customer service has been repeatedly praised, and I have demonstrated the ability to thrive within busy environments requiring a high level of efficiency.

I also earned a reputation as a mixology master with an encyclopedic knowledge of both classic and trendy cocktail recipes (from Alabama Slammers to Zombie’s Brews and everything in between).

Well-versed in luxury service standards and liquor laws, I hold current state- and county-issued Food Handlers and Liquor Cards as well as TIPSÒ certification. Additional qualifications include experience performing opening and closing duties; completing sales reports and bar inventories; and maintaining a clean, safe and positive work environment.

Although successful in my present bartending role, the on-call nature of the position does not allow me to work as many hours as I would like. I am interested in securing a full-time bartender position within a luxury resort setting.

I have been a regular guest at ABC Bar & Restaurant for years, and believe my dedication to sales and customer service would be a good fit for your establishment. You can call me at (555) 555-5555 or email mt@somedomain.com to discuss the position.
