Bartender / Floor & Bar Supervisor

Sugarmil / Sweethearts Rooftop / Kit & Kaboodle / Barbarellos - The Keystone Group

Quickly after starting at the sugarmill I rose to the top, being trusted to run any of the bars on my own. Trainee manager has also been offered to me but was taken away due to the fact i am not an Australian citizen. My main role is the preparation of all 4 bars in the building, making sure they are ready to open on time and well stocked. After all bars are open I move from floor to floor helping out where is busiest, wether I'm on the bar making drinks, on the pass help run food or on the floor crowd controlling.

Cocktail Bartender

theloft - The Keystone Group

After coming back to theloft for a second time I took on a higher role in my eyes as most looked to for knowledge and experience from the new bartenders. Bar trainee manager would have been my next step in The keystone group but since I am not an Australian citizen they did not see the value in training someone who wouldn't be around for long

The Winery - The Keystone Group
