WORST BARTENDERS EVER.
I was at Bar 515 on Saturday night for my friend's birthday. We were hanging in the back corner of the bar (couch area). All night, we were buying drinks and shots at the circular bar in the back room. We dealt with mostly the male bartender (brown hair, chubby) and everyone tipped for every single drink.
When I went up to the bar, waiting for the shots, the bus boy came with the huge crate and began to take away the used glasses and beer bottles off the counter. I had a half-finished beer. I was HOLDING it in my HAND when the bus boy grabbed my bottle by the mouthpiece out of my hand. When he realized that it was half-finished, he puts it back on the counter, not even an apology. Granted it was crowded and dark, so I called the bartender over and told him what happened. I asked him for a new bottle to replace the one the bus boy touched.
His response-- "I don't care, it's not my problem, there's nothing I can do". By this time, he had poured us the shots. I told him that I wasn't going to pay for the shots unless he exchanges my beer. The bus boy touched my bottle mouthpiece with his HAND. I'm not drinking that. His hand is dirty. He's been collecting used glasses all night, right in front of me. It was clearly his fault. This bartender, whom we have been tipping generously ALL NIGHT, refused to give me a new bottle.
What was even more ridiculous was that after I told him that I wasn't paying fo the shots, he threw the shots out. So, he would rather throw away $16 worth of liquor than to replace a $6 beer? It was ridiculous. Of course, you can imagine that I was pissed off. I demanded to speak to the manager. He waved me off and told me to go find him myself.
I found a waitress. Told her what happened, and she told me to speak to the main bartender on duty for the night by the front bar. So, after telling him the story again, I did finally get a replacement bottle. However, no one apologized. No one was courtesy.
No tip-paying customer should be treated like this. That bartender in the back room should be fired.
DO NOT GO TO THIS BAR.
Pros: good music
Cons: rude bartenders
