Barbacks: The Secret Heroes of Your Bar

Garvey Wholesale Beverage Marketing

Barbacks are the backbones of successful bars. They support the team of bartenders and ensures everything behind the bar is in working order. Since most of their tasks take place behind-the-scenes, many don’t realize the importance of a good backbar.

Opening & Closing the Bar

A good barback knows how to properly set-up and break-down a bar. They're responsible for keeping everything systematic, stocked, clean, and in the proper place to make the bartenders’ job easier when the busy times hit. Barbacks need to be extremely organized, detail-oriented, and quick on their feet.

At the end of the night, barbacks clean, reorganize the chaos, and do a final inventory count before the start of the next shift.

Glassware maintenance

Barbacks are also responsible for cleaning and polishing glassware. This serves as additional bonus training because they learn about the many types of drinks and different kinds of drink ware. By having a better understanding of the glasses, it also prepares them when setting up the bar and stocking the glassware for the night.

Helping the kitchen

During busy times, barbacks can help the kitchen by moving dishes in and out. This task would help your employee become more familiar with your food menu, and be an "all-around" team player in your business.

Keeping the bar orderly

The job description of a barback is open-ended. Cleaning the counter tops, refilling non-alcoholic beverages, and clearing customer tables are just a few examples of how these heroes can help maintain your bar during a shift.

Inventory management

During a busy shift, it's nearly impossible to have an accurate inventory count. One of the most important tasks of a barback is to manage inventory and restock the bar. At the end of every shift, he/she will note the current status of your inventory and make orders for low-stock items. Naturally, barbacks will receive all deliveries and place new items in order.
