Profession of a bartender is now becoming a trend. The interested people are just like running water that continues to increase. Vocational schools having tourism majors, for instance, always ask for the Association of Indonesian Bartenders (ABI) to become teachers. “We always send ABI members to become bar instructor at schools. It is on the request of the schools,” said Chairman of ABI Bali, Ketut Darmayasa.

Based on the data, Darmayasa explained that currently the interest of young people to be a bartender is quite high. It can be seen in every competition where the participants are always booming. “In addition to being creative in mixing drinks, they are also skilled in doing juggling. It is a part of skills and concentration practice,” said this Food & Beverage Director of Grand Istana Rama.

Bali local bartender has superior capability and quality. When participating in competition both in national and international level, they always appear as the winner. “Bali bartenders have always been a priority because they have passed the standard of competence. Therefore, professionally Bali is not left behind if compared to other regions,” said this alumnus of Certified Hospitality Trainer (CHT) of the American Hotel Lodging & Education International (AHLEI) in 2016.

Darmayasa said that the competence of a bartender has three indicators. Firstly, he must have the expertise of a bartender showed in playing bottles and mixing drinks. Secondly, they have English proficiency and mastery in bar material. Thirdly, he should have good behavior. “Whatever one’s ability is, he or she must have good behavior. Otherwise, they cannot become a competent bartender,” he said.

This man from Singaraja then invited all the bartenders to follow competent certification because Indonesia including Bali has been participating in the ASEAN Economic Community (AEC) policy since January 1, 2016, so that there is a provision that every profession should be certified. “Every profession, including bartenders, is obliged to be competent, so that they can compete in the international world,” he said.

Darmayasa added that all the ABI members have been working, so that all of them have followed the certification. Currently, ABI has 176 members. However, many bartenders are still scattered in each district and municipality in Bali. “In the near future, we will get all the bartenders in Bali,” he added. (BTN/015)
