8 Bartenders Give Away The Smoothest, Fail-Proof Pick Up Lines They've Seen During Work

Tending a bar is playing the part of witness to a whole lotta liquid courage meets fly 'n die after a botched pick-up line. Hell, I've seen my fair share, just as I've playfully tested a few myself. If you approach the douche-tainted social situation for what it is, and have some self-aware fun with whatever could compel a person to bust out a pick-up line in the first place: you might just find it works better than you could've hoped for. Or at the very least, breaks the ice.

    Product - [- cantrepeat(score hidden) 20 hours ago Not a bartender but watched a buddy pull this off So there is this beautiful chick, and this dude is trying to talk to her and clearly she is not into it. So my buddy buys two beers and walks right up to her and sits down and says "Hey babe, I got you a beer." I saw the words come out of his mouth from across the noisy bar...and there was a split second moment of suspense. She immediately grabbed him by the arm and replied "thanks babe". I was u

Things were going well and he tries to kiss her, she shys away and says she isn't into pda. His response was, "good thing my bedroom door has a lock." they immediately left together. I was in awe.

    Hair - - SoreWristed 3571 points 1 day ago I tended bar for a local youth "club" of sorts for a couple of years on weekends. There was one guy who was trying to hook up with one particular girl, I knew them both, which he did over the course of several weeks. Everytime she'd come up to the bar, he'd be somewhere near, or in another spot at the bar and he'd just smile whenever he caught her eye like he knew her. Eventually, she went up and talked to him to try and figure out where he knew her fro

    Dog - [-] hexdanlan2539 points 1 day ago I was in a very strange bar, it was my going away present from my coworkers. One of my older coworkers, like 40- 50ish, sees this lady enter with a dog (the bar allowed dogs, it was freezing cold and dogs were everywhere) He changes the conversation to 'what kind of dog do you think that is'. I think the group settled on cocker spaniel mix. He gets up, asks the lady if her dog is a cocker spaniel, asks if it likes treats (what dog doesn't). He had saved d

    Hair - [] cookie_steez (Score hidden] 18 hours ago* (last edited 7 haours ago) I'm late to the party, but as I was bartending I heard one guy say "I'd never forgive myself if I didn't ask for your number", and the girl said "sure. Want it now or tomorrow morning?" He looked at me bewildered. I nodded him on. Smoove move girl. Edit let me clarify that they had been chatting and flirting for close to an hour, and the bar was about to close. permalink source save save-RES report give gold reply hid

    Text - [score hidden] 16 hours ago -] LordVald I was not a tender at the time but have been for over 15 years. A friend and I were having a beer or 7 while waiting for our pool league to start. The BT was really cute (personality cute) with a fantastic smile. We were all a bit smitten. The bar was slow and she was leaned over talking to us and I could tell he was on fire. He asked for another beer and as she reached for it, he blew a smoke ring that seemed to slowly grow in size. Her back was to

    Finger - trodgerable (score hidden) 7 hours ago So I was flirting with the bartender at my favorite bar on my 21st birthday. She was new-ish, and I was drunk as fuck. Before I left, she told me that I looked exactly like her ex-boyfriend. I asked her if she was sure that I didn't look like her next boyfriend. Then I did finger guns and walked out. Literally the smoothest I've ever been.

    Product - -] Patzzer 4136 points 1 day ago I work a pretty nice, tropical mixology bar. One night we had "casual night" so to speak. So instead of my usual button-up shirt i wore sleeveless tank that said "sleeping with the bartender won't get you free drinks, but it's worth a shot. saw it online and I printed 3 (one for me, two for my fellow bartenders). I did it cus i thought i'd be funny Well, shit, it worked. Not only did we get a stupidly high amount of tips (like 200 bucks each) but we all
