As our bartender at Bar Kantoor, you have no problem at all memorizing multiple orders at once, refilling the grab-and-go and preparing 4 cappuccinos for the terrace is easy peasy lemon squeezy for you. You feel like a fish in the water – or wine – behind and in front of the bar. This means that you are aware of drunk guests (you know the fine line between the fun and not-fun types of drunk), when and where glasses are empty, and of course which guest needs a little chat.
Inspiring guests and making a connection with them is one of the most important things in our book, and that is what we try to focus on. We are authentic, personal, and have a sense of humour! You enjoy informing the guests about all the fun events and happenings in Amsterdam and on the Westergasterrein. Additionally, you enjoy telling the guests all about Conscious Hotels and Bar Kantoor and what we stand for. All of the products within Bar Kantoor are organic, and the kitchen makes use of all sorts of techniques in light of sustainable cooking. We are proud of this beautiful concept! Therefore it is important and fun to share this with the guests.
Because we strive to have a full bar every day of the week, you need to know how to handle stress, but that is also the part of the job that makes it so fun, right? Of course the workplace needs to be ready for service, so that is also part of your job description, as well as keeping the bar tidy.
