Liquor.com | How to Get Better Sleep as a Bartender
For bartenders, working long shifts, often at night, in high-stress environments can wreak havoc on your sleep. As Megan Barnes, the beverage director and partner at Espita Mezcaleria in Washington, D.C, says, “After churning out a million drinks and dealing with guests all night, your body is buzzing and your mind is going miles a minute. It’s really hard to go to sleep at the end of the night.”
While it’s tempting to try and wind down with a drink or two or simply zone out with Netflix post-shift, Barnes and other pros have some advice: don’t. Instead, try these strategies for getting better and more restful sleep.
