Bars and Clubs
Chances are, if you’re over 18, you’ve been to a bar, club or pub.

The start of the night always goes well, everybody is happy, everybody is keen to have a good time and dance, talk and forget about their lives for a while. Fast forward a few hours and the stages of intoxication kick in and a Hospitality Manager takes over, keeping those drinks coming fast and the troublemakers at bay. They’re not afraid to say no, and a great Hospitality Manager will know how to retain control of the situation with the help of a supportive staff.

A tight rein and an attention to detail are key components in ensuring customers get the most out of their experience.

Natural talkers and detail sticklers would be very comfortable in a restaurant setting.
