Do you tip at the bar???

Hey all, so i turned 21 in June, and i have started going to the bar when i am home sometimes, and taking my friends who are turning 21 also. The drinks are already pretty pricey, not that that really matters. But when you go to the bar, and sit at the actual bar and have a few beers and maybe a shot, are you supposed to tip? I have been, and i usually tip between 15-25% because thats what i tip at a resturaunt (as long as the service is good), but is that appropriate or what is expected? What do you guys tip when you go to the bar?

So sometimes you don't tip at all? I mean if i dont need to be tipping then most of the time i wont. I know that when the bartender takes car of you you take car of them, but if you just order a few drinks, and its busy and they dont really "Take care of you" then is it necessary to tip? Cause even if your servise isnt great at a resturaunt then i still tip, because thats all they make, but i dont know if its the same with the bar....

Good rule of thumb: $1 per drink. $3 per pitcher. Sometimes more or less depending on the service and hotness of bartender/waiter, err waitress i mean. Good tips generally mean better service, and usually a free drink or 2.

Its just like going out to a sit down restraunt....depends on service, quality and most importantly......how slutty the server is.
I don't usually tip guytenders unless the bar is really slow.

Yes, even if the service is not great, tip. Now if the service is horrible or rude, then skimp on it. I generally tip well, but cut back for bad service. I can't recall ever not tipping though. But i keep in mind everyone has a bad day sometimes, and sometimes it's beyond the server's control.

I usually throw down a couple bucks for a tip per drink. Depends alot on the bartender.

Follow this. He nailed it. Hopefully you will to. That is if the bartender is HOT. If you go to the same place take care of them. They will return the favor.

I frequent my local bar 3-5 times a week. I don't drink much usually literally 1 or 2. I know all the bartenders pretty well. I have seen them get huge tips if the guy is trying to pick them up. I usually tip $1.50 because I have been unemployed since Nov. I don't know how other bars work but mine pays the bartenders $7 or $7.50/hr +tips. they make around $100-150/night and if it is busy that weekend they can get $500 fri and sat.

The policy is if there is less 5 people drinking then the bar tender closes shop at 12. If it is busy then they can stay open til 2 if they want. I have seen a guy pay $20/15minutes in tips to keep it open on top of a $50 tip to get the ball rolling.

I am far from a big tipper but I am a regular that doesn't start trouble and I get a lot of free beer, sometimes cigarettes and pizza.
