    This sounds super desperate, but whatever.

    I was at a NY club on friday. Open vodka bar was from 10 to 11. I got two shots of vodka from the hottest bartender ever (huge, young, super cute). No charge, and I didn't even tip (oops).

    I go back to wait to get a couple more drinks. He comes over and puts two mixed drinks right in front of me. But being the naive club-goer that I am, I let some other guy take them who says "oh i think those are for me... "

    So I wait a couple minutes more and order two more shots from him. He goes "those drinks were for YOU!" "you better stop giving away your drinks!" or something half-joking like that.

    So obviously I said "oh man... so sorry.. gimme whatever you gave me before!" & thanks, etc.

    then i tipped. haha.

    So. At first I was excited because I thought he was giving me drinks on the house, but then i remembered it was an open vodka bar. fail. I never go to clubs so I really don't know how this stuff works.

    Thanks guys!

    He probably wanted to make you feel bad for not tipping him at first.

    ALWAYS tip, especially the sexy ones.

    hmm interesting.

    My question is basically this... was he being extra nice to me by giving me drinks without me having to ask/order, or if this is standard practice at a busy open bar.

    From what you were saying, it seems like he was hitting on you. I don't think it is normal for a bartender to give you TWO free drinks. Plus, a guy took the two drinks that were originally intended for you and gave you two other ones to make up for it.

    Seems like flirting to me.

    No, he was working his bartender charm to get you to tip.
    It worked.

    Ask if he'll see you after he gets off work then you'll know for sure.
    I think he was just being a typical bartender, nice.

    If that's actually you in your profile pic, he was probably flirting with you. And he was probably flirting with every other hot guy who walked up to his bar.
