Barman – The reason to choose a place next time…

“The true measure of ones character is how they treat the barman”
I live by this rule and can’t help but judge you on this. *Yes kill me! I judge at times*  But an amazing barman is always a prerequisite for having a good time at any place and going there again or even suggesting it to your friends.

So let’s start this now I say! Notice them, appreciate them, treat them well and give them a warm hug from my side when you meet them next 🙂

Here are 6 of those superhero barmen I’ve met till now…

1. Pandey Ji @ Toto’s, Bandra, Bombay – The Listener Barman

I had to start with him because of reasons aplenty. It was while having a chat with him when I realized that you remember places by the people you meet there.

Always ready with old monk, coke and a seat at his bar!

2. Sujoy @ Fatty Bao, Indiranagar, Bangalore – The Experience Maker

If you really want to taste a cocktail and not just a concoction of random alcohol types then Sujoy is your man! Now that he has moved to Monkey Bar (Richmond Road, Bangalore) I miss his food and drink suggestions. Ohh and it’s quite difficult to catch hold of him, he keeps changing bars/ pubs every 3-6 months because he feels that he has done his job there 😀

One of those barmen who creates an experience for you along with an off-the-menu cocktail 😉

3. Shetty @ Satya’s , Koramangla, Bangalore – The Modest Barman

Mr. Shetty doesn’t drink himself but makes sure that you go home tipsy. It is so easy for him to become part of your drunk laughs.

All for a good cause Mr. Shetty 🙂

4. Naveen @ Puma Social Club, Indiranagar, Bangalore – The Humble Giant

Hehe Woopes! He is the bouncer there but I loved him for the smirk hiding behind his effort to keep a straight face x-D Must be 3 feet taller than us but almost made him dance. Make them have a bloody good time with you…

5. Anuj @ The Humming Tree, Indiranagar, Bangalore – The Fun One

He made me taste the yummiest chocolate + Beer + Old Monk cocktail. Also, the chilli vodka shots which had to be taken with a side life saver of Apple Juice. Dragon mode on!

Don’t have a good photo of him with me (yet) but just yell out his name the next time you are there…

6. Prasanjeet @ Loca Loca, Khar West, Bombay – The Friendly One

He is fun. He is funny. He is sweet. He is generous with free shots 😀 . And he can be protective of you if a situation arises. All in all, your friend in deed and need.
