Job Description

Are you an F&B pro? Got 5 years of professional experience mixing cocktails?

Well, that still doesn’t mean you can cut it as a Baldface Bartender or as we call them, “Night Guides”.

Done with their shred day, our guests return to our timber frame lodge and are welcomed with music filling the lounge, or perhaps even a live guitar session from one of our talented staff. At the heart of our lounge is your control tower; an elbow-shaped 30 ft long wooden bar. If that bar could talk it would tell you about the boat races, pink ponies, dance parties and car bomb trophies!

As a Night Guide, you will shepherd the guests through après into dinner and into the night. Our bar staff work with our chefs to prepare a feature cocktail and wine selection for the evening meal, showcasing our fine selection of BC and other-worldly wines. As the bartender, you get the party started and create a vibe for an awesome night for all. Skills in reading a room, setting a mood, and remembering guests’ names and drink preferences are valued well above your ability to remember how to mix a “Fearless Redneck”. The Bartender is responsible for the “Serving it Right” aspect of our good times and smooth professional service.

The Bartender is responsible for creating an enjoyable and inviting atmosphere for the guests. This person must provide friendly, attentive and timely service while performing a variety of tasks and duties. This position must have extensive knowledge of the liquor, beer and wine offered at the lodge.
