Hey guys, I work in the Nantucket Grill, at the Holliday Inn doing room service/busser/host/server. I am looking to get a job as a bartender, but am unsure if that is possible. I have a National Bartenders Certification and am reviewing my drinks. I have applied to many bartending positions, and am looking to get TIPS certified. I am partailly discouraged, because every place I apply to says I need 2-5 years experience behind the bar, but how can I get that if no one gives me a chance? Are there any bartenders out there and how did you get your foot in the door? Also do you work in a gay or straight bar and why?
