Bartender - The French Room

Posted October 30, 2018

Since opening its doors in 1912, The Adolphus has served as an icon of Dallas and an integral part of the City’s history and culture. Situated on the original site of City Hall, the hotel was modeled after a beaus arts German castle. In its recent restoration and renovation, the hotel’s storied past is both celebrated and reimagined. There is a sense of discovery at every turn. The French Room’s menu draws on French culinary traditions and methodology with a fresh sensibility, including thoughtful table-side flourishes and a comprehensive wine program.

The French Room bartender is responsible for the preparation and service of beverages both alcoholic and non-alcoholic, including food to the guests in a friendly, courteous and timely and manner, resulting in guest satisfaction.
