Stephen “Stevie” Simpson started off as a busboy/dishwasher in the early 2000’s. Since then, he has become proficient in every job, filling every position in the restaurant! While many bartenders and mixolo- gists have invested in training courses to teach them how to bartend, Stevie believes that getting your foot in the door is the best way to get the job. He believes that as long as you learn everything you can about every respon- sibility of the job, you can climb your way to the best shifts behind the bar!

Stevie’s favorite thing about his job is meeting new people, rooting for his favorite Philadelphia teams on the big screens, and creating new drinks. Try his Peach Long Island Iced Tea or Irish Trash Can! When asked to give advice to a prospective bartender, Stevie says, “you need to treat every guest like a friend and to be patient both as a server and a customer.” He also believes that having hands-on experience in all aspects of the industry is really the key to being the best employee you can be. Be sure to stop by the Willow Street Pub any day of the week to visit Stevie and his fellow employees!
