16 bartenders share the smoothest pick-up line they've ever overheard.


Bartending is a job that requires more than mixology skills as you're often expected to be a matchmaker, therapist, bouncer, and concierge service...

While standing on your feet for 12+ hours into the wee hours of the morning can be a brutal grind, the benefit of snooping on intimate conversations can be a spicy perk.

So, when a Reddit user asked bartenders everywhere, 'Bartenders, what is the smoothest pick up line you've ever heard?' eavesdroppers of the service industry were ready to share the most successful flirty moments from customers they've witnessed.


Heard this one while closing down a couple weeks back. 'Come on, let's go back to my place, I'll make you a quesadilla.' This girl had been swatting guys away like flies all night but that one worked out. - king_of_chardonnay


I worked at a beach bar. I watched a young guy walk up to a smoking hot, tanned, female lifeguard and say 'Help I can't breathe.'

She was legitimately concerned and asked him what was wrong.

He said, 'Looking at you takes my breath away.'

She was pissed for a second than began to laugh. They talked for a little then exchanged numbers. - [deleted]


I'm a bartender. Met my girlfriend when she asked me for two shots of a tequila and tobasco based shot and then said 'that one is for you.' I still think she's very cool. - [deleted]


A girl once bet that if she could fit an entire one of the cupcakes we sold in her mouth without using her hands, I would have to give it to her for free. She did and I did. I was so impressed, I got her a free drink too. 6 years later, we're still together eating cupcakes and sh*t. - CantankerousOctopus


I work at a bar in Long Beach NY (male). A female customer was giving me advice on how to hit on my bartender co worker (female) who is a very close friend of mine. She kept feeding me 'adorable' things to say to my friend because she thought we looked cute together.

I thanked her and took one step toward my friend then turned back to her and repeated it all back. She took the bait and it landed me back at her place. - patm516


I bartend in a pub next to a college campus. I watched a guy say 'that's interesting' or 'Oh, man, that's crazy!' for a full hour and a half before leaving with a girl way out of his league. Fake it till you make it, ladies and gentleman - customcombos


I had a group of guys who were all hitting on me but were very funny and not annoying about it (a true rarity) when they paid one left a few extra bucks after already having tipped me, on a napkin with his number saying 'from the cute one' then I noticed that one of the other guys left a $20 tip with his number and a note saying 'from the cuter and smarter one' it cracked me up.

The only time I considered reaching out to a customer because I wanted to say thanks for the laugh! - KaiserHawaii


I bartend at a big college bar and when you wordlessly hand your friend a beer when the bar is swamped and he just got there it makes him look that much cooler to whatever girl he's talking to. - Elin_Woods_9iron


Not a pick up line, but the smoothest thing I've seen from behind the mahogany. This guy was hitting on this girl at the end of the bar. She asked him, 'you gonna bring me some roses?' and this man took two straws, a napkin, and a lighter and I sh*t you not made a rose with it. You bet your ass she left with him. Kudos, sir. - HURR1CANE_WR1ST


A coworker tried to start a game of tic-tac-toe with a pretty girl by drawing an empty board on a napkin and handing her the pen. She just wrote down her phone number. - FREAK_DOLPHIN_


Bartender/server here. Buzzed gentleman extends hand to slightly more buzzed woman and asks,' will you hold this while I step outside?' They come back after sharing a cigarette. Pay the tab, take a cab together to wherever - AnxiousTester


I met my current girlfriend while working behind a bar. She got way too drunk so the next time she came up to ordered a drink i gave her a pint of water and told her she had enough. Her response? 'Well if you're not going to give me a drink at least give me your number.' We have a dog now. - PortPear


I work in a bar/restaurant in San Francisco and these two Australian girls came in. One had a boyfriend and she said 'I plan on getting so drunk that I get carried home tonight.' and the single girl turned to me and said, 'Maybe you could help me carry her?' - jordonblu


Saw a dude standing at the bar waiting to order drinks when it was his round and a Britney Spears song comes on. He just happily sings along and wiggles his hips, waiting to order drinks.

Wasn't showing off or trying to be funny, just happily doin' his thang. The chick next to him was staring the whole time laughing and when he noticed, he just smiled and nodded and went right back to it. She took the bait and that was that. - [deleted]


Bartended in college. Guy walked up to a girl at the bar, goes 'Hi my name is Ben*, and I'm going to buy you drinks until you find me attractive.' Girl smiled and laughed and he asked what she would like to drink. She looked him over (he was already very attractive), turned to me and said 'In that case, I'll have a water.' He definitely got it that night. - xray_anonymous


Bartender here. Best pick up I've ever seen was when a group of 3 dudes college aged were at the bar on my end. they started talking about this girl on the other side who is clearly the hottest girl in the bar. One of them jokingly said to another If you can get her number without saying a word to her I'll buy you drinks the rest of the night.

The kid who was dared waved me down asked for a pen and napkin he walked over and within 10min came back over girl in hand asking his buddy who bet him for 2 patron shots. I asked him what he did and he showed me the napkin with her number. He played hangman on the napkin and spelled out 'can I have your number?' And it actually worked. He and his girl were drinking heavily and for free the rest of the night. He also walked out with her so I hope he scored. - [deleted]
