National Bartender Day

National Bartender Day is celebrated in America on December 2nd. The holiday honors the great profession we face in bars! Bartenders know how to make delicious drinks, it is interesting to tell stories, listen to the interlocutor and joke. Often upset people go to the pub and tell the specialist about their problems, because he has long become a symbol of trust.


The profession settled in the United States in the middle of the 19th century just during the gold rush. The bartender went about his usual business: mixing ingredients to present delicious cocktails to customers. The oldest specialist lived in Pennsylvania, having stood up for the first time as a young man. He firmly decided to make money, as a result, he remained in the profession for 79 years! It is surprising that he was so dedicated to the profession that he retired only at 90 years old.
