A bartender in NYC
is like no other bartender in the world. First off, let's talk volume. They deal with busy locations where they on any given day are dealing with huge throngs of crowds, loud music and/or loud crowds, and orders being tossed at them left and right on TOP of that loud noise. Before the crowds show up, they prep for any expected crowd size depending on the nightly average, the glasses are polished like the sun, and the bar is set up with everything it will need for the shift. Barbacks are their go-to helpers especially on busy shifts when they can not leave the bar for a second to restock, so they depend heavily on the barback to be their support system and supply partner.
