Tambu Lounge at Polynesian - Most of the bartenders are quite good but not all.

I think Walter was the best when I was there a week or two ago - the Lapu Lapu and zombies he made were killer compared to the ones I had the same week by some of the other staff
I have had many Lapu Lapus over the years and Walter was the first to mention that you could get a refill at a discounted price - it's not like you need a second or third pineapple

Also Clint was very good - he seems to know alot about Tiki drinks

See?! I knew it! I told you there was a Bruce! She told us that she had been moved to WL and had us say hi to a couple of bartenders over at Contemporary (since DH and I were on a resort bar crawl and were heading there next).

If we are just talking about the now, I have never had a bad drink at River Roost at POR. But all-time, I had NEVER left the rock/surf club at Pleasure Island in a bad mood (if you know what I mean).

I'm at the Territory Lounge in the WL right now and Brucie is tending bar. I told her that a bunch of people on DisBoards gave her a shout out and she was really touched!

Does anyone know Walter's hours? Tried calling Tambu last nite and nobody answered, guess they were busy.

Tim and Steve at the Barefoot Bar (Polynesian) are the best.

Atop the contemporary in the California Grill theres a Scottish woman whose name escapes me but for each trip we've made it a point and she's served us every year. (This past year she even made it a point to take care of us for our anniversary- special desert w no request awesome seating she requested, they tried putting us pretty far from MK view, and a few other perks.) beside all that she's a traveller and has some good stories about places she visits

Awww, now I'll never get a seat. Well, I do like it when my bartender friends get the business (in the good sense of that phrase), so I suppose I can share. Grumble grumble. Ms. Brucie is the queen of old-school drinks. I know they're not everyone's taste, but order a Manhattan from the standard drink menu, and you'll get to watch a true practitioner of the bartender's art. Brucie's at the Territory Lounge Sunday-Thursday.

Plus-one for Mike at the Top of the World.

Plus-one, also too, for Jenn and Alena at the Tune In Lounge, neither of whom have yet 86'd me in the manner I so richly deserve. Carl at the Rose and Crown is a deserved legend, though the bar tricks don't make sense, to me at least, until my third Guinness.

Walter and Clinta (yes, with an "a") at the Tambu Lounge do make the best tiki drinks. They also know Mike and Brucie from when they were all at Pleasure Island in the old days, so once you get to know one of them you can become a friend-of-multiple-houses pretty quickly.

My favorite bartender of all has to be Tammy at Mizner's Lounge. She's done so many over-the-top favors/things for my friends and me over the years, both "onstage" and off, that I'd probably quit drinking and become a Mormon if she retired. She works Friday-Monday. Tell her the Cheesecake Man (get your heads out of the gutter) sent you. If she's not there, either Sheila (there are two) will also take care of you quite well.

Sigh...I know many more but I'm already late for work.

As the Tambu Lounge is the service bar for 'Ohana, and that the latter is absurdly busy this time of year, I think it's probably a circus. Pro tip: go before 4:00 if you can, and it's decidedly more laid-back.

Don't hold me to this, but I'm pretty sure Walter and Clinta have the prime-time shifts of 12-12 Friday through Sunday. That's when I'm usually there (OK, not all 36 hours, but you get my meaning), and I always see at least one of them if both aren't on vacation.

ahem ahem. More for your drinking pleasure, in no particular order:

Cindy at the Crew's Cup Lounge
Mike at bluezoo
Craig, Lorna, and Kristin at the Flying Fish (though I'm less about the drinking than the eating there, so the bartender/server distinction gets fuzzy for me. Also, they're as good to me as Tammy from Mizner's)
Sam (the female kind) at the Dawa Bar in Animal Kingdom

Yeah, I know a lot of bartenders.
