APRONS FOR BARTENDERS
Being a bartender or a mixologist is more than just making drinks for people. there really is an art to bartending and it can get downright dirty, at least for your clothes. one complaint we always hear from bartenders is about them ruining their clothes and having to always buy new digs. bartenders are expected to look good, but if you are always ruining your clothes it’s hard to do.
we interviewed kevin who is currently a bartender in st. louis, mo at 4 Hands Brewing co. you will hear him talk about things like which apron he uses from the knife & flag collection, which is the industry apron. he says it’s lightweight, durable and comfortable. when asked if he would recommend the apron to other people in his industry, he had a one word answer. “absolutely”.
KNIFE & FLAG...YOUR INDUSTRY’S GOLD STANDARD.
Kevin - Bartender
TELL US A LITTLE ABOUT YOURSELF
"I’ve been working in St. Louis bars and restaurants for almost 10 years now. I’m currently working at 4 Hands Brewing Co. I was 26 when I realized bartending could be so much more than just serving drinks to people. The creative freedom and fulfillment of mixology are what drew me in. Anyone can make an Old Fashioned, but when a regular asks you to make 300 of them for the guests at their wedding, you realize how important a well-made cocktail is.”
