    I have an interview Wednesday to work in a pub/bar/nightclub setting.
    How do I approach this? Has anybody else been interviewed for bar work?

    When I had mine they asked me about my previous experience and skills, they also asked had I been to that venue and what nights/music I was into

    Okay okay...
    Does getting drunk as a student count? 😂
    I was a tad scared they would ask me make a drink.

    I'd told them I went there most Wednesday nights on the student night. Didn't have any bar experience but had worked in a shop so spoke about customer service, keeping calm with big queues etc

    They won't do that, but they probably should. I mean, if you can't make a drink properly you have no business being behind a bar.

    Normally it's a trial shift though if you pass the interview to assess your competence for the job.

    It's a bar job. Just be sentient and not frozen in internalized anxiety and you'll be fine.

    They'll want someone who smiles when they walk in to the interview (I've spoke to managers who have this as a rule), who at least pretends to be warm throughout.
    Unless you're applying for a top hotel or bar they won't expect you to mix a drink. You're not a mixologist.

    Stop over thinking this. All it takes is to walk in smiling, and be confident that you can put some liquid in a container.
