  Bars are filled with people trying to look cool.

  Maybe you're 
  trying to impress your squad. Maybe you're trying, 
  and failing, to woo someone on a first date.
  Or maybe you just want to appear cool in front of me, your
  bartender.

  And why not? Bartenders are hip. We stand in front of people and
  do things most people probably can't do.

  at least not disappoint us - when it's their big moment in front
  of us: ordering a drink.

  No matter what kind of drink you order, we'll happily make it
  with a smile. But that said, there are some types of drinks we'll
  secretly judge you for requesting.
