Tender Baristas, or rather Barista Bartenders

The Center for Fiction is looking to hire a dynamic group of service people to barista and bartend a bustling cafe in The Center’s bookstore. Across the street from BAM, the cafe will feature a limited and well curated selection of baked goods made in Brooklyn, as well as a small selection of craft cocktails, wine and beer. This will be a fun work environment and our main requirements include an interest in food as well as literature, a passion for customer service, and a willingness to develop and learn new skills. Barista experience a plus, but not necessary. Having a food handler’s license coveted. Make coffee and cocktails, all the while surrounded by books. 

Job Requirements: customer service is fun; a desire to learn and grow with the project; interest in craft and product knowledge; must have a favorite book!


This is a part time position; salary dependent on experience. To apply email
