The VinePair Podcast: Does it really take longer to get a drink now?

Should bartending be about providing fast service or making sure guests have a good time? We ask the question: why not both? After all, a good bar visit includes a drink in hand, and although the job of a bartender is varied, it is ultimately about serving drinks to guests.

Hospitality can mean something different to everyone, but there’s one thing we can all agree on: nobody likes to wait forever for a drink. However, in today’s world where cocktails are becoming increasingly complicated, the speed of service is often incompatible with the preparation of a well-made drink.

In this episode of the VinePair Podcast, Adam, Joanna and Zach discuss the balancing act between bars serving great drinks quickly in a busier environment and slower service in a more relaxed atmosphere, as well as some of the reasons for slower service. They also talk about their personal IPA Mount Rushmores and answer a listener’s question about the drinks they drink for celebrations and special occasions. Tune in to find out more.
