Bar Babe of the Week: David at Club Cumming

Bearing beauty and brains, it’s future bio technician and current Bar Babe David!


Bar that I work at: Club Cumming

How long I’ve worked there: Since October 2017 (9 months)

What are my shifts: I bartend Saturday nights and Sunday Happy Hour

What makes this bar great: The programming is out of this world.  We have comedy, we have drag, we have parties, what’s your flavor?  We have it.

Best drink I make: I make a good Cosmo, it’s been complemented many times.

I love it when customers: Come in and dance the night away on Saturdays to Sammy Jo  and Darren Dryden, our DJs at Haus of Cumming.

I hate it when customers: Forget how many drinks they’ve ordered, and then complain about the bill.

Craziest thing I’ve seen here: We had this performer, Mouse, in from London to do a show, and it was a lot of Labia…

Other places I’ve worked: I have only been in NYC for a year and a half. I first worked at Rise, which I loved. Teddy and Paul are great managers. Then I left to do a season on Fire Island at Cherrys. Jacque is a no bullsh*t boss, and we got along great.  I met Daniel during the FI season, and he asked me to work at Club Cumming. I have been there ever since. I love it, and am grateful to be a part of the team.

My hometown: Cornwall, NY

Stuff I do when I’m not bartending: I am in grad school getting my masters in biotech, so it’s a lot of time studying. I gym 5 days a week, too. Going forward, I am looking to make more use of the city, and go see more shows and visit museums. Otherwise, living in NYC is exhausting and not worth it. The culture is what makes it.

Single or Taken: Single

Who/what turns me on: How explicit do you want?  Let’s just say I always tend toward hairy men, because I love musk.

Favorite music: Podcasts orYouTube clips. If my headphones are in, it’s probably someone talkin,  like an interview and not music. I only listen to music at the gym. It’s either dance remixes to pop songs, or symphonic metal.

Favorite movie or TV show: The Parent Trap (LiLo version)

Favorite drag queen: Pixie Aventura

My drag name would be: It’s hard for me to choose. I’ve toyed with Amanda Le Here, Malbecky, North Dakota Fanning. But most people would agree it’s probably Fanny Pak. I always wear a fanny pack.

Favorite gogo boy: Mariano. He dances most Saturdays with us at Club Cumming. He not only dances well, but is a sweetheart. Mariano’s roommate Juan, is also mesmerizing as a gogo. He will just pull up on a Saturday, take off his shirt and dance. I believe he dances with Spunk.

Favorite DJ: Johnny Dynell. He has given me the best remixes to work out to at the gym. But 2Face does the best drag suicides.

Other stuff you need to know about me: I am a science nerd and supplement guru. I went to Penn State and got a degree in Plant Science. I know a fair bit about agriculture because I took a lot of Ag classes. I am an aspiring polyglot. Auditory learner: you tell me something I will remember it (winky face emoji).
