Bottoms Up with Chris from the Biltmore Cabaret

Thursday 09th, March 2017 / 15:49

VANCOUVER – Ever wanted to know more about that person behind the bar pouring your liquid courage? Here’s your chance. This month, meet Chris Alarcon from the Biltmore Cabaret.

HOW DID YOU START BARTENDING? I started bartending because after two and a half years of bussing I strategically became best pals with my boss and convinced him that I was ready for it. I wasn’t.

HOW LONG HAVE YOU WORKED AT THE BILTMORE? Let’s just say I’ve been there long enough that the guy I served last night was discovering masturbation when I started.

BEST THING ABOUT YOUR JOB?  Best thing about my job is commanding the respect of a stranger who would otherwise not even look at me in real life. Because without me, there’s no liquid courage for them.

FAVOURITE DRINK TO MAKE?  My favourite drink to make is something exotic and blue with cherries floating on top because it blows the minds of naive young kids.

GO-TO DRINK ON A NIGHT OFF?  Go-to drink on a night off is usually whatever my pal Nina Mila decides to make me at The Boxcar. #NameDropper. Usually a vodka soda. Bitters because I’m a simple man with simple pleasures and I’m trying to watch my figure.

TELL US ABOUT THE GREATEST NIGHT YOU’VE EVER HAD AT WORK.  Greatest night at work was probably when I asked Jesse Pinkman from Breaking Bad if he needed a tequila shot to which I got a very subtle “No, thanks.” The acknowledgement was enough for this star-struck guy. That or when Tame Impala played. I knew they’d blow up.

THE WORST? The worst night I’ve ever worked is anytime there’s a metal show with five bands on the bill. One can only handle so much fury. Or the time I said, “Bye, sweetie,” to a girl and her boyfriend tried to hit me over the head with a bottle. Shoutout to our fabulous security staff for saving my life that night.

The Biltmore Cabaret is located at 2755 Prince Edward St.
