We are looking for a part time bartender to help us represent this unique culinary concept. As Chicago’s only all Japanese sake and shochu bar, the sheer amount of sku’s is unique and challenging, but we approach it with a certain amount of fun and levity, while also being very serious and respectful to the craft of the brands we represent. While we keep our cocktail game strong using all Japanese ingredients, it isn’t the main focus of the program. As the baseline of what we do is premium sake, so experience in tasting and selling wine is useful, and basic grasp of Japanese pronunciation and Japanese cultural insights are important. For a Japanophile who knows the fundamental timings of delivering great service, multitasking everything front of the house from hosting, prebussing, upselling, cocktailing, attentiveness, and can work in a friendly team based service atmosphere, this might be the ideal situation for you. With our veteran team, we are looking for the right candidate and are also willing to train up the right person to the position.
Izakaya Mita is a family restaurant and we are an equal opportunity employer. As a family, the Mita’s have always appreciated diversity and aim to create a healthy work environment for all involved regardless of gender sexuality or race.
