Jad Ballout: A successful cocktail menu needn't be extensive

Get +10 points

The main secret of a flourishing bar is the presence of a unique concept and memorable atmosphere, both of which fill a specific gap in the market.

Supporting an environment of hospitality: our main priority. It's what makes our customers come back again and again.

Create your own unique style of cocktail preparation. The latter is what makes a bartender a professional, not the ability to correctly mix the right ingredients.

Be open, kind, and learn to listen – the cardinal rule when talking with your bar's guests.

A bartender's clothes must be immaculately clean and neat, as well as put together to conform to the bar's style.

A good bartender must have a brilliant understanding of people's psychology.

If a guest is being rude or tactless, give him more attention than the others. Maybe they've just had a rough day.

There are no irreplaceable people – and no irreplaceable bartenders, either. Don't let your ego control you.

A successful cocktail menu needn't be extensive.

Treat your colleagues like your own family. Respect each other's boundaries and try to understand each other.

Travel more. It increases a bartender's qualifications and expands your worldview.

Try to stay one step ahead and don't stop developing.

Don't forget to look into the future: practice more, watch more, and learn new "tricks of the trade".
