Other Jobs in the Strip Club Part 3: Bartenders

Bartender at strip club

Mixing drinks can be fun!

I’m Jennifer McCumber, author of Freedom V, feature columnist for ED Publications Magazine and I’m leading the movement for exotic dancer development all over the world.

A bartender at a strip club can make as much money as the dancers do. A female bartender at a gentlemen’s club can make a good deal more than a guy, and definitely more than she would make at any other establishment. The same advice I give for dancers applies to bartenders. Building a regular clientele is as key to bartending success as it is to exotic dancing in this business.

Men come to the strip club for that human experience I keep referring to; they come to the club to feel special, and if you are the awesome lady bartender who makes their drinks exactly the way they like them, then you are in for keeps.

Both men and women spend more money at gentlemen’s clubs than at any other kind of bar or nightclub. Here are some statistics and reinforcement for why you will make more money bartending at a gentlemen’s clubs than anywhere else:

1.  There is more top-shelf liquor and champagne sold at nightclubs than any other bar or venue.
2.  More than 90 percent of clubs serve beer, wine, champagne and liquor.
3.  More than 1,000,000 customers visit adult clubs every day of the year.
4.  Adult clubs are open longer hours and more days than any other type of nightclub.
5.  All clubs serve bottled water, soft drinks and energy drinks.
6.  Adult clubs have combined annual gross revenues of more than $7.5 billion.
*Statistics for the gentlemen’s club industry from edpublications.com

This means more money in your pocket. When sales and popularity is this high, you will benefit drastically. Preferred qualities in bartenders that I have personally noted include:

1.  Friendly and outgoing
2.  Remembering what their clients drink
3.  Fast at preparing drinks and fast at greeting new customers
4.  Friendly to the dancers and other staff

A good bartender can make anywhere between 60k and 200k+ per year. It largely depends on how many days you work and what kind of name you make for yourself at your club.

        Have any burning questions about bartenders, or suggestions that you can offer as a dancer from your OWN experience with your bartenders at your club! Let ’em rip!

        Thanks Jenn for your valuable information. I have always enjoyed serving drinks and being the play bartender at small personal house events with friends but I would now like to be a legal Bartender. I am researching Licensing and would love to know what school would you recommend. I have heard that ABC is very good and popular. Do you have any suggestions? I currently live in metro Atlanta. I do plan to get licensed soon and would also like for it to be transferable, because I will be relocating to California. Thanks for all of your work and support!

        • Jenn says:

          I’ve heard the same things about ABC – but often times you can start out at a bar that will train you from their own management. You’ll have to see what options you have. I would reconsider locating to California at this time unless you know for sure you will have a high paying job – we just moved our business from California to Texas a few years ago because it is so expensive to live out there and you will go broke fast! Beware!

        Hi! I have 2 questions for you about Bartending.

        I just wanted to know is there any clubs that would help train me to be a Barback since I eventually want to become a bartender, plus I heard also they like ladies to look slim in appearance, I’m actually medium built with a little tummy and I’m 5’2 will I have a problem getting a bar back position because of a little weight?

      4. Zuleika says:

        I have another question is it true that you have to make a name for yourself and have followings to become a bartender in most gentlemen clubs? That what I read from one owner for a gentlemen club in NYC, he said it hard to get your foot in the door. I have seen many female bartenders have a lot if folllowers on twitter, Instagram etc plus they already have experience and a name for themselves.
