We, The Public Tip Bartenders, Back Barbacks

During this time of social distancing, the hospitality industry is the hardest hit. Hourly and tipped workers are finding themselves without a paycheck. 

Public Bar Live wishes our patrons and staff a safe quarantine during these uncertain times.

We're unsure as to when we'll be re-opening, so in the meantime if you'd like to tip your bartenders, please do so here.

In the meantime, do you miss our bartenders' sage advice? Here are some virtual tips from Public Bar Live's bar staff to you:

1. Drinking alone isn't drinking alone as long as your texting with someone you [kinda] like.

2. No task is beneath you. Boxed wine stays fresher longer and is a great companion during times of quarantine. 

3. Don't make decisions when you are angry or ecstatic. Make them when you've woken up from the 3rd work-from-home nap you've taken...today. 

4. Learn something new every day. Take this time at home to learn how to make the best mixed cocktail or perfect that oatmeal chocolate chip recipe. Then bring us a cookie when we reopen and tell us all the Netflix shows you binged!
