Mix. Shake. Serve. If these three words are the essence of your life then bartending is the career you should choose. It is very different from the regular nine to five jobs, but it is a deadly combination of hard work and fun at the same time. It also provides you with the option to go places and meet new people every evening. If you are planning to make a career out of bartending, Dubai is the most happening place to be. It is here that you’ll find some of the best opportunities that will allow you to grow as a bartender and earn income and reputation at the same time. So, why is Dubai such a great spot for bartenders who are already successful or for those who are hunting for a successful career?
One of the reasons for it is the number of bars, lounges, restaurants and five star hotels that are mushrooming all over. Dubai is among the most frequently flocked cities in the world. In 2013, more than 11 million visitors visited Dubai either for leisure or work. There are more upscale hotel and restaurant properties that are coming up all over, catering to the ever-growing list of visitors that would expect some world class food and beverages and dining experience. With the number of restaurants, lounges, bars and five star properties growing there is a greater demand for bartenders in Dubai.
Secondly, Dubai has become a multi-cultural hot spot as more nationalities and cultures blend in together. People from all over the world come to Dubai for work or leisure which also creates the demand for a wide variety of food and beverages. A decade ago many believed that the Muslim culture here in Dubai and the rising cocktail culture would not blend well, but the demand for cocktails has exploded in Dubai over-stimulating the market. This ever-evolving Dubai’s cocktail culture also in some way has created a demand for bartenders from all over the world that can create something different behind the bar for people who are in for a really great time.
Apart from business tourism, Dubai also hosts one of the biggest shopping festivals that draw millions of shoppers from across the globe. The emirate is being called the ‘Shopping Capital of the Middle East’ and eventually at the end of the day all these shoppers head to the nearest hotels, restaurants, bars and lounges to enjoy the best drinks served in the emirate by some of the best bartenders in the world. Dubai also encourages cultural tourism that also attracts people from different corners of the globe.
If you want to try your hand at the art of bartending, Dubai can offer you an opportunity to showcase your bartending skills, to become the newest celebrity, to tour the world and to be adored by the public. There is a growing demand for bartenders who are friendly, who have the passion to create magic behind the bar and would want to showcase their talent and skill while making great income and career out of it.
