BOTTOMS UP: 
getting to know your local bartenders

Monday 17th, April 2017 / 18:44
By Yasmine Shemesh

Ever wanted to know more about that person behind the bar pouring your liquid courage? Here’s your chance. This month, meet Nina Mila from the Boxcar.

HOW DID YOU START BARTENDING?
My parents work in the restaurant industry so I feel like I’ve been serving and bartending since I was eight years old. My mom is going to love this answer.

HOW LONG HAVE YOU WORKED AT THE BOXCAR?
I’ve been working for the Cobalt and the Boxcar for just over a year. Don’t ask me where I was before; I’ve blocked it out.

BEST THING ABOUT YOUR JOB?
The best part of my job is definitely meeting new people and finally feeling like I’m part of a community.  We have an A-plus staff and our regulars are comprised of some of the best people in this city. I could go on forever about it.

FAVOURITE DRINK TO MAKE?
My favourite drink to make is whatever the heck you want. It’s not about me, it’s about what’s going to make the person I’m helping happy. But if it’s for me, I’d like a mezcal margarita, no salt please — I’m salty enough as it is.

GO-TO ON A NIGHT OFF?
I can’t lie because I’ll get called out. My favourite place to drink on my night off is the Boxcar. If it’s Saturday and I’m feeling adventurous, I’ll go to Cobalt and visit my queen Alex Hulley at the back bar for Glory Days. Otherwise, I’d go the Narrow, especially if Jody Glenham is working!

TELL US ABOUT THE GREATEST NIGHT YOU’VE EVER HAD AT WORK.
Any shift where everyone pays their bill, all my favourite pals come in and I don’t have to cut off a grown man and hear him call me something rude.

THE WORST?
I don’t have bad shifts at Boxy but if you want to hear about some real horror stories from other gigs, come sit at the bar and I’ll tell you a tale (or five).

The Boxcar is located at 923 Main Street.
