How does it work?

Bartenders use onthebar to notify their regulars when they're working, to create and share drink recipes*, and to let their regulars know what's happening at their bar in real time.

Bargoers use onthebar to keep track of their favorite bartenders and fellow bon vivants, discover off-menu drinks*, and decide where to go based on what really matters: the people making it all happen.

* Our cocktail database now has thousands of bartender-added drink recipes with more being added every day. Check it out and try one at home. We're posting our favorites to our instagram account: @onthebar. You can also browse them on the web view http://drinks.onthebar.com

They want your location


You cannot use the app if you do not allow them to access your location. I trashed the app.

Awesome for Bartenders and Patrons.


As a bartender, I'm often asked what I'm excited about or what my latest drink is. Thing is... I like bold flavors and if my latest cocktail has habanero in it you might not like it! The off menu menu is awesome. It allows me to offer a variety of different drinks to my regulars while still making them feel special. The on-the-bar notification is awesome. The open-source nature of the drink sharing is awesome.

My only complaint: I work in a craft beer / craft cocktail bar. I wish there was more to highlight craft beer. Fine whiskeys would also be a huge plus for me. I would bet there's some wine people out there with similar needs. Still a five-star review but I think the ap focuses more on craft cocktail bartenders as opposed to other high-end bartenders.



Hey guys, the app is coming along nicely. My regulars often call/text me early in the day to see if I will be "on the bar" later. So if there was an option to check in "I will be on the bar" today tonight tomorrow etc that could be cool. ALSO if I am going to push my regulars to get this app, maybe you guys could create an incentive for the bartenders? Just a thought. :) I think this is a great idea! Maybe you could add a section for bartender to bartender, or a space for people to see my weekly schedule at each bar, as it stands the only time people know im working is only after I've gotten to the bar. Just more ideas for an already great concept. ALSO as a bartender using the app, I can't search for my friends, not by their name or their bar. But my friends who are not bartenders can search by bar name. What's going on here? Can I get a search bar?
