Bartenders have a pretty tough job really. They’re hard working and have to deal with a host of drunk people night after night, but often you do get various places and bartenders that make the most of you being drunk and essentially take more of your money even though you might not realise it.
Sometimes little scams are used to either squeeze a bit of extra money out of customers or to shortchange them, this doesn’t happen everywhere but these tricks are known to have been used.
Here are five tricks that are used that you should definitely been watching out for.

Like all jobs you’re judged on your performance, and with bartenders, they’re evaluated by how much money passes through the tills. If you were to order a vodka Redbull then a bartender is highly likely to reach straight for that more expensive bottle of vodka. You’re probably assuming the price is what it usually is at this bar or club and you won’t question it. If you do notice, are you likely to mention it?
An alternative to this is that sometimes they replace brands so although you think you’re getting a certain brand you may possibly be getting another.
