The bartenders is everyone’s favourite person on the evening out. They'll help you stay well provided in drinks – most likely of the alcoholic variety – at any bar or pub one happens to go to, as lengthy as you've enough money and aren’t too drunk to become offered!World Bartenders Day may be the day to understand employees inside your local bar. They strive to have their clients happy and frequently don’t get compensated perfectly! Always be friendly towards the bartenders, especially when you are patient if you need to wait to become offered. Provide the bartenders a grin and say ‘please’ and ‘thank you’ – the bartenders will be thankful and also you may improve service the next time you purchase a glass or two. Most significantly, if you are inside a country where tipping is anticipated, make certain you tip properly!Anybody desire a drink?

What is a typical hourly wage paid to bartenders, excluding tips?
In California, it is minimum wage plus tips at public houses and a little more if you work at the hotels. Hotels will pay more, especially if you are working during the day since you have few customers and your day is mostly spent stocking and prepping for the night shifts. I have worked in San Diego, CA for the last 18 years, our population is 1.24 million city and 2.5 million county.
Also, larger clubs will be the same hourly but the tips that you get are substantially more. My friends that work in the larger clubs never get a weekend off and must tip out everyone at the end of the night. The last large club that I worked at I would gross $250 per club night, but then my barbacks got 30%, the doormen/security would split up 10% and the club host got a fixed $ amount (the last time it was 25.00 per shift to cover the advertising costs). This also varies from club to club. I have worked larger clubs that the waitress always was served before the guests. That would usually piss off the guests since they had been waiting since before she came up.
Also keep in mind the local costs with moving to certain cities to bartend. I have friends that work in smaller clubs in area's of the south like Mississippi, Austin and Georgia. With the exception of Austin, they all pay much less than I do for rent and gas (currently in California coastal areas, the average rent for a 1 bedroom is about $1000/month and gas is running $3.45/gallon/regular unleaded. My friend in Georgia is only paid $2.15/hour; his gas is 2.85/gallon/regular and his rent is only $400/month. He tips out nobody and he made more than I did on a monthly basis.
Lastly, when you bartend, most bars will be open 365/days per year. There are no paid holidays, no vacation, no benefits. I had the hardest time when I purchased my last car. Since I was paying for everything with cash (No need for credit cards) I had to pay 31% for my car loan. They couldn't imagine that anyone in their late 20's could exist without credit cards. The worst part is the beauty game. I was lucky that I had the look that the club was looking for, but as the years past, I noticed that I was less and less sought out to bartend for the hipper clubs. Age and looks play a huge part in bartending.
I was watching the International Bartenders Competition a few years ago, from New York city. They had bartenders from all over the world. The grading went like this:
Speed: ------------> 10%
Acuracy: ----------> 10%
Flair: ---------------> 80%
I was blown away! Flair is the ability to juggle bottles, throw glass and mixers into the air while doing accrobatic stunts and basically entertaining the crowd. The 3 winners, all from Europe, spent 6 hours a day practicing tossing bottles and glasware into the air and catching it. Not one had spent more than a couple of years Bartending. So basically if you have a background in juggling, you can become a world renowned bartender (unless you are female..... In the 7 years they have done this, only 1 female finalist!)!
I had no social life, few friends that were not bartenders and since I always had cash, everyone was always asking If they could borrow a little until payday (I never have been repaid). All in all, I enjoyed my life bartending, but I wouldn't do it again!

For attire, take your cue from the business. How swank is it? What is the clientele? Are you just there to make the 21 year old males drool? What are the other bartenders wearing (go there on a busy night and see)?
If it were my bar, I would expect you to be able to do the physical things your job requires in the outfit you wear, more than look like a whore for tips. I would expect slacks, but your boss says skirt, so consider the following... Can you squat down in your skirt for bottom shelf items? Can you carry a case from the storeroom or basement without destroying your clothes? Poly-cotton is indestructible, stays pressed, looks good, and cleans easily, but it is not sexy. I would suggest a skirt and top made from it. The blouse would be 3/4 length sleeve or longer, long sleeves rolled up is acceptable. I would also expect you to wear an apron, if it were my bar, perhaps they will supply one.
If you do this for long, stop looking for clothes in the fashion stores and start buying work outfits from restaurant/bar supply places. They are priced lower than street clothes and are built for wear.
My bar would be service oriented, and I would have you dress for work. Many places will tart you up and dangle you as a cheap substitute for strippers. If that is the case, you'll have to dress for that instead.
Shoes are a concern you haven't listed. Black sneaker type walking shoes are going to be about the only type shoe that will not kill you on a standing shift. If you have money to spare a good leather shoe with low heel and leather sole would work well, once broken in. You'd have to be an idiot to consider heels, let alone ridiculous (fashionable) heels. Be prepared to say no if the boss expects it (unless you're bring in $2000.00 in tips a night then what the hell, right?).
The outfit is rightfully a concern when starting out. You haven't said if you have any skill at bar tending or if you will be given training... That is the next immediate thing to worry about.
@KK: Psst, she no longer has a day job ("got made redundant" = euphemism for let go), hence the new job... stop rubbing salt...
To be fair, the world is full of bars and only the tiniest percentage of them are going to be swanky enough for your standards. In real life, a great majority of bars hire like this, and somehow they and their hires manage to survive the embarrassing humility of existence and the self-loathing they must feel when looking at the creme-de-la-swank uber-hoity establishments where you are employed.
By and large it is a "get a warm body to fill the vacuum" mentality. Whether that is ideal or not is moot. The fact is, like it or not, most new bar tender hires either rely on self training before applying, get trained for a couple of hours by the waitress that has been filling in, or get thrown to the wolves totally unprepared. In any case, the job is what you make it. If you are willing to survive a few weeks of hell, you could find it is a rewarding job. It is a matter of being willing to face the fray and own the results.
At the very least the asker should try it and stick it out for a while. She has got nothing to lose. Always bear in mind this is a job that you can quit at a moments notice, but in the meantime it is a paying job.
@K.K.; OK, I agree with almost everything you say, including feeling good about myself by indicating you are elitist (I know it's not true, but I am SUCH a b*tch). But you will have to agree with me that the bars you are describing as "good" are a tiny tiny percentile and not representative of the norm. None of us has to like the reality on the ground, but we shouldn't pretend it ain't so.
Not implying that you don't give the most accurate info the majority of the time, because you do- I thumbs you up often (that just sounded really rude). Just calling you out on this one, because your sphere of experience might be considered limited (in a good way). I wish I could frequent the bars you describe, but my wide travels indicate they rarely exist accept in the rarefied air of those social strati enjoyed by very few major cities, where the elite go to escape the stench of the rest of us.
The sour mix using, apple "martini" making, beer jockey, bottom of the barrel bars = 99% of all bars. They could start a movement called "occuy barstools" and not be far off.
