    I wait tables and manage for a living so Im pretty good with tipping people but Im not sure what to tip bar tenders

    I almost always end up getting a Corona just tonight after work I stoped at a bar and picked up a Corona it was 3.75 so I give her a 5 and said keep it

    Im not a big drinker so I guess it's not that bad but if I were to have a DD I would spend money out the butt on beers/drinks/tips

    so what does everyone here tip?

    depends on 3 things:

    - where I'm at
    - what I'm drinking
    - how I'm paying

    If I'm at a hole in the wall, i don't tip as well as i would at a "name brand" club. If I'm drinking bud lights, its usually a dollar each, or .75 if they are 3.25. I'f I'm drinking martini's, its a different story.
    if i'm running a tab, it's a different story too, vs paying /tipping per drink

    1. depends on the the price of the beer
    2. depends on how much money i have at the time
    3. my mood
    4. how flirty the waitress is- hot girs and flirty and booze=next day.."dude, where'd all my money go?"
    5. and how the service is-i waited at a counter for like 6 or 7 mins once for a pitcher with nobody in front of me while the guy fucked around. i paid exact amount and he was like "what no tip? you dont like the service or somethin?" i replied "not when i gotta wait 10 mins for this watered down shit". that was 2 teeth ago tho.. <_<

    anyways about $.25 to $3 normally with the exception of #4

    That and you're underage :)


    I tip them %15, rounded up. I usually have 2 beers when I go out, so it's bottles up and $10 down. Then I realise how stupid it is that I'm paying about an 800% f*ckin mark up without being able to smoke while I drink them. That's why I haven't been to a bar in 4 months.

    -> Steve

    No wait, Airjockie, myself and our women went out a few weeks ago. And it's for other reasons that I won't go to a bar again. Total waste.

    for rounds it depends on how many drinks and how complex they are

    :withstupid:

    I think last time I went out I gave a buck and the change tip per drink...

    so the waitress made over 6 bucks just grabbing a bottle for me 4 times. not too shabby.

    On the other hand I'll give a pizza person 5 bucks...if she's hot....like I did today....

    bahaha

    I dunno what was up tonight but I was gettin 5 dollar tips all over the place...then an 8...then i got screwed, then more and more 5 tips...made 68 bucks

    I usually tip .75 to 2. It depends on the drink and the price of it and where the place is. Good service is a plus, I usually don't tip a hot bartender extra, because I am most likely never going to take her home, so whats the use.

    the only time I go to a bar is when I'm in T.J.
    I know the last time I was there drinking, my friends and I tipped the guy bringing us our drinks but I was too drunk to know how much it was. probably a total of $10 or $15 dollars I guess.

    $3 at lunch $5-10 at dinner, unless it's an occasion and we sat there a long time, then it is proprtional to what we had/did.

    As far as drinking in a bar, $1 every other round on a $3 dollar drink.
