BOTTOMS UP:Courtney Richards from Jackalope’s Neighbourhood Dive.

Thursday 11th, May 2017 / 15:53

Ever wanted to know more about that person behind the bar pouring your liquid courage? Here’s your chance. This month, meet Courtney Richards from Jackalope’s Neighbourhood Dive.



HOW DID YOU START BARTENDING? 
I started bartending at a hotel pub in Kamloops. It ruled—we would open up the pool table for our friends, turn all 20 TVs on to Intervention and eat chocolate bars on Sunday nights.

HOW LONG HAVE YOU WORKED AT JACKALOPE’S? I’ve been at Jacks for around a year and a half, and been the bar manager for the last year.

BEST THING ABOUT YOUR JOB? Everything from the ownership down rules at Jackalope’s. We are treated respectfully and fairly, and we are given a place to hang out with great friends and customers, listen to rad music and be ourselves.

FAVOURITE DRINK TO MAKE? The beef back! We are pretty sure we invented it. It’s a shot of rye followed with a shot of beef au jus and it’s amazing! I love watching people try them for the first time—they are always totally stoked.

GO-TO DRINK ON A NIGHT OFF? $5 pints of PBR at the Princeton.

TELL US ABOUT THE GREATEST NIGHT YOU’VE EVER HAD AT WORK. It sounds cheesy but we always have a great time at work. The staff at Jacks is like a family so on any given night you are hanging out with pals, cracking jokes, and listening to killer tunes.

THE WORST? When I break off all my dang fingernails.

Jackalope’s Neighbourhood Dive is located at 2257 East Hastings Street.
