The history of the bar
A profession the bartender appeared during the “gold rush” in the US. Then came the first bars – the outlets that sold everything from shovels to lingerie. Over time, in order to attract visitors, owners of shops began to pour alcohol to customers. And one day a clever businessman has partitioned room with high barrier that divided the shop and place for those who want to drink. From this barrier took place the word “bar”.
