These guys got game!
You’re single, so you get all dressed up and head out to your local bar to see the talent. There are some good looking people, but you’ve got your eye on that little honey sitting at the bar with her girlfriends. You think about how to play this one, and you’re ready to pull something out of your repertoire. You make your approach and lay down your best lines, looking fly the whole time. How can she possibly resist you right now? But alas, she is repulsed, and you have to creep along back to your seat defeated.
Bartenders watch this scenario play out night after night. It’s a perk of the job, perhaps. But it’s a real treat when they finally watch that guy make a connection with the prey he’s after. These bartenders are ready to dish on the smoothest moves they’ve ever seen go down while they were slinging drinks.
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. (cookie_steez)
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 him when he released this majestic ring. As she turned around, the motion of her body caused it to slow down (I swear time almost stopped here) and as she set the beer in front of him the ring just hovered ever so gently over the bottle then slid slowly over the bottle, down stem growing just enough over the shaft and hit the bar. Gently dissipating. When she looked up he was staring into her eyes. She said softly, “That’s the sexiest thing I have ever seen”. This smooth mother says “you should see what else I can do.” A slight pause and he grinned, winked and slapped a 5 on the bar. We walked away to meet some friends who had just walked in. He leans into to me and says “No way in hell I could pull that off on purpose” I just lost it and we shared a laugh. Next thing we knew, they were together. Time passes by and friends grow apart. Last I knew they were still together. 20 years later and I still remember that as the smoothest thing I have ever seen and I am a grown ass man. Sorry for the long story. The question just reminded me of a great memory so I had to share. (LordVald)
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 utterly shocked that it worked.
First dude promptly bailed and like 20 minutes later my buddy was making out with that chick haha. There you have it folks! Confidence! (cantrepeat)
