Gallagher’s Steakhouse is a 90-year-plus institution for steak lovers in New York City - highly recommended if you've not been!
A recent visit sitting at the bar provided the opportunity to spend time with career bartender Stuart. Whilst only at Gallagher’s 2 years, the topic of suggestions for long-term success in hospitality came up. Stuart offered 3 pieces of advice gleaned from a lifetime of dealing with guests, colleagues and daresay friends and family too: kindness, patience and respect.
The race to become technically proficient in as little time as possible for many is the key to becoming successful bartenders. Maybe they’re right, yet on a more human level, doesn't kindness, patience and respect lay at the centre of what it means to deliver memorable hospitality experiences that guests crave?
What do you think?
