Bar Babe of the Week: Alex at REBAR

New bar, new Bar Babe! It’s the gorgeously tatted sweetheart of REBAR, Alex!

Bar that I work at: I currently work at REBAR NYC , NYC’s newest gay bar in Chelsea.

How long I’ve worked there: I’ve been there since they’ve opened in April 2017

What are my shifts: My schedule currently varies with the time I go in, but I’m normally there Wednesdays-Sundays,

What makes this bar great: Such a beautiful space! The space is incredibly sexy and inviting. It’s a bar built for the community to come meet Mr. Right, or Mr. Right Now, with no distractions.

Best drink I make: I make a mean Old Fashioned, Mmmm… and it’s also my favorite drink! But if bourbon isn’t your cup of tea, then sip on one of my muddled pomegranate lime mojitos.

I love it when customers: 1. bring a great story to share about their day, week, or month, cause I love me some tea! 2. Know their drink order before they call me over. 3. 3. TIP TIP TIP

I hate it when customers: Don’t come to the bar! If they’re not here, then there’s no one to talk to me! Also, please don’t call me over if you don’t know what you want .. seriously, that is annoying! 🙂

Craziest thing I’ve seen here: Oh jeez… our smoky glass wall is always a hoot! Whether it’s kissing or dancing or just conversing… you can always see silhouettes of what’s happening inside the red room. That’s always entertaining!

Other places I’ve worked: Hardware Bar, Therapy, Stage 48 for Viva Saturdays, and my favorite: Fire Island Cherry Grove! (Cherry’s and Sand Castle)

My hometown: I was born and raised in Astoria, NYC!

Stuff I do when I’m not bartending: I’m studying Krav Maga, and I love love love doing mud runs (Spartan Sprint and Tough Mudder). Besides that, I just started learning how to play the guitar!

Single or Taken: Taken!

Who/what turns me on: I love comedy and thrill, so make me laugh and excite me! Physically I love big hands and tattoos (howls at the moon).

Favorite music: I love love love jazz. Play me some live instruments and I’ll be content!

Favorite movie or TV show: Favorite movie would have to be Moulin Rouge, and favorite show is The Walking Dead.

Favorite drag queen: Pixie Aventura, duh!!!!!

My drag name would be: Charmagne Basik

Favorite gogo boy: What?

Favorite DJ: I love me some Tiesto, but if we’re talking gay nightlife then Borowski is always where it’s at. Mike Borowski, that is.

Other stuff you need to know about me: Come have a drink and find out… I’m an open book!
