Welcome to part 2 of Top 5 Ways to get the Bartenders Attention. If you haven't seen part 1 yet, read this first.
3. Patience, Eye Contact and a Smile - A Three Hit Combo
If it's a busy club and the hoi pilloi are swarming the bar yelling and spilling drinks and you need to get a chartreuse to ease the pain, try your best to maintain your composure and make good eye contact with the bar staff. Smile, nod and keep your eyes locked and you'll get served faster then Howard Stern at Scores.
2. Pay the Man
If the bar is especially busy and you've been kind enough to take care of the bar they'll take care of you in return. If its super busy, do what we here at MetroWize are famous for and set a precedence. We walk up to the bar, announce our names to the bar staff, order a drink or two and lay down a twenty spot on top of the costs for the drinks. Sure it's costly but we never have to wait.
Self Explanatory and yes please. At best you'll get the bar staff's attention as well as free shots - at worst you'll get the bar staff's attention and free shots. It's really a win-win.
