Bartender Chapter 17 – The Visage of a Bar (Part 2)

I want to thank Dhalia for providing me with the Japanese raws for this chapter.  I was missing page 10, and it just wouldn’t be the same if I released the scanlations with a missing page.

Update: Changed Gin Tonic -> Gin & Tonic






Drink of the Day:

Gin & Tonic

  • Lemons or Lime
  • 2 or 3 cubes of ice
  • 45 ml of Gin
  • Tonic Water

Thoughts (Spoiler Alert):

This chapter reveals the other sides of Minegishi-san and Kanako-san.  Minegishi-san appears to be a wealthy person, but is actually broke.  Kanako-san, who seems to be gorgeous and elegant, have to constantly deal with the stress she gets from her customers.  Sasakura understands the primary role of the bar and how to treat customers, as we have seen in previous chapters.  He is also very skilled at observing customers and understanding how they feel.  So I was a bit surprised that he did not see through Minegishi-san and Kanako-san.  I guess that’s why he is still going to different bars to learn, and even though he is a master at making cocktail, there are other things that can only come with experience.

The moral of this story thus far is that we can’t always judge a book by its cover.   There are many aspects of a person, or even a bar, that others do not normally see.  Sasakura provided the service of a bartender in terms of mixing and serving the drink in a manner that would have been considered excellent in most cases.  But he made the mistake of taking the customers at face value.

    Thank you so much for scanlating Bartender, I’ve been chasing it on One Manga a while ago and was disappointed when it was dropped by other scanators. Thanks for the effort, I really appreciate it! =)

    Nice work, but I must say that I cringed at “Gin Tonic.” In English, it’s a Gin and Tonic.

      Crap, you’re right! Well, this shows how much I know about cocktails. LOL. It’s too late for me to change what’s in the release, but let me at least remedy this by changing what’s in my post. Sorry about that.

    Thank you, thank you again. I’m so happy to see two chapters in a week. It’s AMAZING! And it’s also my favourite chapter, too.

    Could you tell me the Chinese name of this manga?
