Norb's Tavern
Upset Customer

Saint Louis, MO

#1 May 11, 2007
I recently went to Norb's Tavern to visit my favorite bartender and found out she was fired. She was one of the fastest bartenders in that place and always set up my new drink as I was on my last swig of my previous one. She was always talkative and very nice. I can't imagine what she could have done wrong. I personally will not be going to that bar anymore. If anyone hears where the young girl is bartending now if she is, please post a response. I had been going to that bar for years, but this upsets me enough to stop going.

I was also shocked to learn of my favortie bartender's firing from Norb's. I first set foot in that bar back in the 90's, and had been a regular there for quite a while. One thing that made Mondays bearable was knowing that I could go to Norbs and have a cold beer, and talk with her. I still look forward to having a cold beer after work, but from now on, it will either at another establishment, or wherever she winds up tending bar. One thing is for sure: Because of this, I've got no problem walking away from a place that I've been going for a decade after they treated their best bartender that way. I will never go back.

I cannot believe the owners fired her. She was fired for absolutely no reason at all. The owner could not even fire her to her face. The owner waited for her to finish her shifts for that week and then called her on her day off and fired her over the phone. YES, OVER THE PHONE. I will not step foot back into an establishment that will terminate an employee for no reason and then not even have the courtesy to tell them to their face. The owner really needs to learn how to run a business.

We are talking about a bartender arent we, NO UNION, No job protection, then again many bar owners are not what I refer to as good employers, bartenders especially the younger women are just bait to attract a lonely drinker out of his pay...

you are all nuts!!!!! I worked at norbs for 10 years and let me tell you that it is not a dump. the owners have put a lot of time and effort into making it one of the nicest looking bars in town. As for the bartender that was fired, i know exactly who you are talking about and until you get all the facts you have no right to judge the owners decision. she needed to be fired. if you choose to not go there again that is fine but you need to just keep your mouths shut because i am sure there is no love lost for you either.

If you wanna find underage drinkers and coke heads doing lines in the bathroom I'd say your safe bet is --- The Firehouse -- Norbs -- and Timeout -- Harris'
