One of my income streams is a part time evening/weekend gig of bartending. I’ve been bartending since I was in college and find it to be a fun job (at times), that has a good hourly rate so I do it as a side hustle to pay most of my bills so that I can save the majority of my day job income.
This is where I track how much I make as a bartender, which should be insightful for anyone aspiring to become a bartender. I track how much I make per hour in tips, my base pay hourly, then average these out on a shift and monthly basis to show about how much on average I make bartending part time.
My goal is to make $1,000 a month income from bartending, which will allow me to pay the majority of my living expenses so I can save the vast majority of my full time job income.
