Head Bartender

Job description

You are so much more than a human bottle opener. You are the thread that keeps the social fabric of the hotel, and the neighbourhood community, intact.

The bar is your home, the place where you entertain. You enjoy making people happy, whether it's with an amazing cocktail or just general world-class service. Let's be honest, you're probably a big reason someone will want to come back (and bring all their friends). 

We are The Commons! 

The Commons is the space within The Student Hotel that connects people from all walks of life, bringing students, travellers, freelancers, entrepreneurs and neighbourhood locals together over the joy of food, drinks and discovering the other passions we have in common.

It is the every-bar/restaurant/café for everyone: laptop and coffee workspace for students, cocktail-bar for friends, lunch spot for business meetings, date night for lovers, and a casual group dining space for families of all kinds. It’s a place for drinks that lead to dinner that leads to who knows what…


How do we achieve this familiar and welcoming anything-can-happen social environment? With awesomely fun, smart and motivated team members who embrace the spirit and bring it to life.

We’re looking for people who love sharing and discovering new experiences, who easily connect with others, and who believe that laughter, just as much as fresh juices and salads, is an essential part of well-being and that variety, just as much as Sriracha and saffron, is the spice of life. 


How do you contribute to this? How does a day at TSH looks like?

  • Leading the bar team by example working bar shifts and provide high levels of personalised service to guests;
  • Ensuring the effective and smooth running of the bar operations;

  • Minimum of 1 year experience as head bartender
