Everyone knows there are a few rules you have to follow when visiting a strip club like Rhode Island Dolls. But many people forget that you should also practice good etiquette when you’re at the bar, not just during a lap dance. A bartender’s job is all about providing good customer service by catering to the needs of the patrons in the strip club. But if a customer is rude, then he shouldn’t expect great service. Here are 5 tips for proper bar etiquette at RI Dolls:
1. Always tip the bartender
While bar-tending seems like the best job in the world, it doesn’t pay the most. These hard workers rely a lot on the tips they earn during their shift. The worst thing you can do is not give your bartender a tip.
When a person provides you with a service, like making you a drink, you should always tip that person. If you have enough money for a lap dance, then you should have enough money to give the bartender a couple bucks for your drinks. If you don’t tip the bartender, he will remember. He’ll let it slide the first time he serves you a drink of your choice. The second time you order without leaving a tip you might get a dirty look. The third time you approach the bar for a drink, expect to wait a long time. Bartenders do remember customers, especially the ones that don’t tip. But, if you put some money on the bar, you’ll redeem yourself. Just make sure you leave a tip.
2. Don’t snap your fingers or whistle at the bartender
First of all, snapping your fingers and whistling at a bartender, or anyone, is just plain rude. There are usually only 1 or 2 people behind the bar. They must make drinks for the 20 or more people sitting at the bar, plus make the drinks for all the people sitting at tables. Give the bartenders a break. They know you’re there and they will get to you when it’s your turn. There is no need to be degrading by snapping your fingers. If you do this, you’ll find yourself at the end of the line, and you’ll have to wait even longer for your drink.
3. Don’t complain about the amount of alcohol in your drink
You should never complain about not having enough alcohol in your drink. Most bartenders have to measure out the amount of alcohol they put into every drink. This way, everyone gets the same amount and the strip club can keep tabs on the booze expenses. If you’ve ordered a mixed drink and then complain that you can’t taste the alcohol, then expect to stand there while the bartender pours your drink down the sink. The bartender will then explain the rules about measuring liquor as you watch him make your drink. And next time, ask for a double if you want more alcohol, or skip the sugary mixes and order alcohol straight up.
4. Don’t be rude
While this is a given, when you mix alcohol and naked ladies together you might be surprised how many times we have to remind people not to be rude. In most customer service jobs, the worker must be nice to the customer, even if that customer is yelling and swearing in the worker’s face. That rule doesn’t always apply to a bartender at a strip club. With the constant bickering from people who’ve had too much to drink, the bartender doesn’t always have to respond to your rudeness with kindness. The bartender will be rude back to you. And management often backs up their bartenders. That’s probably because of all the customers who have tried to pull one over on the bartenders and management over the years. If you are really rude, you’ll be kicked out of the club and everyone else will go on enjoying there evening with the sexy Dolls.
5. Don’t go crazy when “last call” is announced
You know that when last call is announced, everyone rushes to the bar to order one last drink. This can create quite a bit of chaos at the end of the night. The last thing you want to do is add to that chaos. Instead, remain calm and patient. The bartenders are working their asses off to make sure everyone receives their last drink. Don’t start yelling or whistling at the bartender. You’ll get your drink. You just might have to wait a couple extra minutes to get it, while the bartender is serving the people standing in line in front of you and next to you.
If you follow this list of 5 tips for proper bar etiquette, you’ll always have great bar service at RI Dolls in Woonsocket, Rhode Island. Most bartenders will agree that the customers who are nice to them always receive the best customer service. But if you do get out of hand, expect to have consequences. The last thing you want is your evening at RI Dolls gentleman’s club to end early.
