We are looking to augment our beverage team with an experienced, professional bartender who is eager to consistently perform at a high caliber and provide our guests with the best possible experience from start to finish. Vie (, Chef Paul Virant's flagship restaurant, focuses on year-round seasonal eating with menus showcasing locally grown, artisan ingredients from Midwestern family farms.

  • 2+ years of bartending experience, preferably in a fine dining or upscale environment
  • Working knowledge of classic cocktails along with the ability to create cocktails on the fly
  • Open or semi-open availability
  • Track record for being punctual, responsible and dependable
  • Experience with POS and reservations systems — familiarity with Toast and/or Resy a plus

Guide guests who are dining at the bar or in the lounge through their dining experience by describing the cuisine and enlightening them on ingredients and techniques

Adhere to legal standards for safely handling and serving alcohol; maintain a secure and healthy environment by establishing, following and enforcing sanitation standards and procedures; Beverage Alcohol Sellers/Servers Education & Training (BASSET) certification required

Be an expert on Vie's food, beverage and service standards, and guide support staff as needed 


Welcoming and hospitable. Uphold our high standards for exceptional service: Anticipate guest needs and find ways to go above and beyond expectations to create memorable experiences.

Hard-working and motivated. We expect you to maintain equally high standards for yourself without needing to be told.

Flexible. As a team player, be willing to do what is asked of you and step up when needed, even if it isn’t exactly part of your job description or your expected schedule.
