- There are right and wrong ways to get a bartenders attention.
- To figure out just what they are, we asked bartenders from around the world to weigh in.
- Among the many faux pas, don’t ever yell, click your fingers — or even wave them. Bartenders hate that.
When the bar is packed and your bartender appears to be out of earshot, what do you do?
Do you wave your credit card in the air? Do you snap your fingers? Or maybe you reach over the bar and start pouring yourself a drink?
To find out the right and wrong ways to get a bartender’s attention at the bar, we went directly to the source, and more than 30 bartenders from around the world weighed in with their opinions on the matter.
Below are some of worst things people do when they’re trying to get a bartender’s attention, as well as some better alternatives.
Clicking or snapping your fingers at them
“Say excuse me, politely putting your hand up without waving it in the air. Just wait your turn. We see you, I promise. Never snap your fingers.”
Yelling at bartenders to get a drink made right away
“You’re not the only customer in the bar, so we’ll get to you when we get to you, especially if it’s busy.”

“The finger wave must have originated in the 7th circle of hell.”

James Law, a Hong Kong-based architect, believes that his micro-homes could help alleviate the city’s housing crisis. But his tiny home designs are anything but typical — they are concrete water pipes outfitted with all the amenities of a modern home.
Law explains more about his “tube home” design below.
Called the OPod, the “tube homes” measure 100 square feet. For perspective, a standard one-car garage spans about 200 square feet.
Law’s firm, James Law Cybertecture, manufactured the “tube home” pictured below from a 8.2-foot-diameter water pipe.
It includes a sofa that folds out into a bed, shelves, a mini fridge, a microwave, and a bathroom with a shower.
Right now, the home design is only a prototype. But Law said he plans to start selling the homes soon. His team is currently seeking permits from the city to start building.
Passengers who fly on American Airlines’ 737 Max planes will probably notice that the lavatories are extra small, with sinks so tiny that fliers can only wash one hand at a time.
The manufacturer of the plane, Boeing, designed the compact bathrooms that way to squeeze in about a dozen more seats…
