After a long day or a long week, it's always nice to let loose and have a couple drinks at the bar with some friends.
Nowadays with the pandemic, we don't have that luxury in most areas which makes us appreciate even more the men and women who make us those much-needed drinks.
Today, we're celebrating them because it's National Bartending Day. Cheers to them, and our 3 favorite movies that demonstrate what bartenders do for us day in and day out.
We guarantee every movie list about bartending has this one at or near the top, and if it isn't then it's a mistake. At this bar, the bartenders aim to entertain and when they're not all dancing in unison on the bar, they're pouring shots in people's mouths and spraying them with the water gun. Fun fact: The setting for this film was based on the actual Coyote Ugly bar franchise, and there are multiple locations across the U.S. and even some overseas that you can visit to see for yourself.
This one's another worthy addition to our list, and might make bartending look the most fun. Everyone knows Tom Cruise does his own stunts and is considered a specialist in a lot of different areas, but did they know he also has some insane bar tricks up his sleeve? We wouldn't be surprised if he got his own bartending license before taking on the role, and even if he didn't, we'd still hire him.
Our final recommendation is less about actual bartending and more about the lengths a specific bartender will go to make sure his family and friends are safe. If people are looking for you and know where you work, there's a good chance they'll be able to find you. When they come knocking and Tom Hardy is the one manning the pub, they'd better be ready for a fight.
