Bar managers are responsible for ensuring that all aspects of a bar operate smoothly. Their work settings range from standalone bars to restaurants to larger venues such as hotels and stadiums. They perform a mixture of physical and analytical tasks as they accomplish their job responsibilities. Work tasks are typically divided into two distinct areas: personnel management and financial management. Because of the variety of skills required of a successful bar manager, a college degree focusing on food service or restaurant management is often required. Extensive familiarity with the food and beverage industry through appropriate prior work experience is also commonly needed.
