Being a Brit tourist, I totally over estimated how long it’d take me to film a few time-lapses for the vlog and get to my deep dish pizza date with Craig (wheezywaiter).
So being a Brit I naturally wandered into a bar! Turned out they open for the first time this weekend, but tonight they were running a training cocktail hour with all the staff. They let me stay (because I’m a charming Brit)!
The bar staff were throwing together loads of cocktails and a few they even had on tap that had been mixed earlier. Everyone was learning under the attentive eye of Jan the beverage manager. I sat at the bar watching and learning too… Neat garnishes, handy tricks for managing a busy bar and general bar etiquette.
It’s great to see a bar that puts that much energy into training and teaching their team. Everyone was up for learning more, even those who had tended to bars elsewhere in the city for years. And the best thing…they will also be serving some delicious farm to table concept food when they open. I have a funny feeling Kings County Tap will be a hit with locals and Brits alike when it opens!
