Bartender of the Month of March: Jarlath from Paddy Barry’s!

18 Mar

In honor of St Patrick’s Day, I introduce you to Jarlath (straight from Ireland!) who works the bar at Paddy Barry’s in Quincy Center. He also happens to be my dad’s neighbor, and my dad is a pretty good judge of character so Jarlath is okay in my book! Here he is:


Where/when we catch you behind the bar?

I’m a bartender at Paddy Barry’s Irish Pub, 1574 Hancock Street in Quincy Center Monday nights, Friday nights and every other Saturday night.

Do you have a signature drink?
My specialty is a fruit salad shot (stoli razz, stoli-orange, banana liquor, cranberry & oj). I came up with the recipe one winter night out of boredom, now it’s our best selling shot.

What is the craziest thing you’ve ever seen as a bartender?
Well, the funniest would be the night some random elderly lady walked in…she just started dancing. Didn’t even order a drink. The guys at the bar started cheering her on…until she decided it would be a good time to take her top off…at which point the same guys started yelling at her to put her clothes on. I put her in a cab-no one should see a woman their grandmothers age naked. The second funniest is more ironic-I was bar tending one Saturday and a man came up to the bar & ordered Blue Moon. He looked familiar and I realized he looked like the guy from the “hoppa” commercial for the Dish cable-so I asked him if anyone ever told him he looked like him…he said “Yeah, cause it’s me!” Great guy-very friendly.


Any other creepy or funny behind the bar stories?

Any creepy stories die with me! For the most part what happens here stays here & a good bartender never tells!
Jarlath Waters: Quincy resident native of Ireland & your dad’s favorite neighbor! Was behind the bar this weekend Friday night and Sunday night for the post parade crowd!

    He’s too modest, so I’ll tell you Jarlath is also one heck of a dart player. I’m proud to know him as a player and a dart team captain in the Minuteman Dart League.
