Depends. If I order one beer I’ll give them $3. But if I’m going to be coming back for 10-15 more I’ll just tip a dollar each time.

If you don't tip, drink at home.

Yup. 1 buck. Unless you plan on not going back or she's a fatty. The bartenders don't like the cheapo guys.

If a server brings it to me, yes, always. If I have to walk to the bar and the bartender reaches down without moving and just removes the cap, only if there is loose change I would receive back.

Typically I'd use a straw... Don't want to waste any right?


I'll also pay extra if the server/bartender is cute.

If you tip your beer, they might cut you off.


At the end of the night, I do leave something for the bartender if they did good service. If the barmaid or bartender just sat at the end of the bar and did not even come around and check if we needed anything, no tip. Sometimes they are so engulfed in their friends they see and hear nothing, their job is to take care of customers, not socialize with their friends and ignore their customers. They can do both, they can talk and pay attention.

I haven't been in a bar in maybe three years now, I have one next to my shop and go in there for coffee when I am down there sometimes. .

Buck a beer.
Rule of thumb.
It is bad luck to not tip.

I've worked in a bar for years and I never saw someone not tip on anything not even a water.

It is usually the young bartenders that do that kind of stuff. It isn't uncommon to have that happen around here. The owner of the bar will hire a girl or guy because they are attractive, many of those get all wrapped up with friends when they come in and sit at the end of the bar. Back in the seventies drinking age was eighteen, there were lots of teenage bartenders in the bars.

When I was younger I dated four different bar tenders through the years. They did not get much in tips a day, usually about ten bucks or so from an eight hour shift. The waitresses at restaurants got good tips though if they were good, it was common for a good waitress to pull in between fifty and to sixty bucks a shift. . That was back in the seventies. They received more pay than anyone else in the restaurant, back then when minimum wage was a buck sixty five an hour, a waitress got less than a buck an hour but could pull in a lot of tips in an evening, bringing her daily wage up to about fifty bucks on a busy day at the right restaurant. A cook would make sixteen bucks a shift.

I notice that people tip bartenders here now though, yet a bar tender could make way more in tips and wages than the person tipping them. I see that in some of the places my daughter and her BF go to. By watching the waitresses and bartenders, I know they are making more than my daughters boyfriend, my daughter makes more though, she owns her own business. I give tips for good service, I do not just give a big tip to try to follow societies lead. I can create a good meal for five people for cheaper than the tip my daughter and her BF leaves for five people if they buy dinner.

I am sorry but I do not believe a waitress is worth more than what a construction worker gets when working on the roads. I have always known waitresses, some pull in two hundred bucks a shift at places here, that is more than most people make here in this area.

I tip at restaurants if I order food, but for drinks, i do share Mr. Pinks philosophy. I cant justify giving someone a dollar to hand me a bottle thats 10 feet away, or filling a glass.


It's for the 'SERVICE' not the item or the distance or the cost.

Ya, i dont think there is a service rendered when someone just hands you a bottle. The business that actually owns everything is paying them enough to cover that value.

all service positions in the US should be tipped

- servers/wait staff
- bartenders
- valets
- door men
- bell men
- massage therapists
- hair/nail techs

The wage scales are set up this way. it isn't because of folks in the country...we all think tipping is stupid. Places like NYC (Manhattan, in particular) really led the way in this tradition, and as always the IRS wants their cut. So its part of the actual wage scale now.

Gosh no, tipping at the pub for just having a beer would be well weird in Britain.
You live a crazy world in the US, but UK barstaff earn decent wages hence the high price of beer and nobody tips.
I'll tip in a restaurant but a bar never.

Heres how it is.

No. I do not tip, because I expect employers to properly pay their staff a high enough wage, that tips are unnecessary. If I see that a tip system is in place, I refuse point blank to use the establishment, and recommend that my friends refuse to use it either, on the basis that the workers within are being exploited, and the best thing to do therefore would be to refuse to use the service.

I expect workers to be paid by their employers, not directly by the customer.
