Who is TheRealBarman?

Head Shot

Hello, my real name is Dave Allred, and if you are visiting for the first time, I will provide full disclosure here because I believe in transparency more than anything, so here is everything you need to know about me:

I am a father of two unbelievable kids (a daughter and a son), I have a smoking hot wife and a business that allows me to do what I love. I will warn you that I can be a bit of a smart-ass and a practical joker so don’t take me too seriously. My dirty little secret is that I love Jason Bourne and often wish I was him because of his ability to escape CIA agents by walk-running from place to place, and because of his ability to beat up other top assassins with a rolled-up magazine.

Business-wise, I’ve spent more than 20 years in the bar/restaurant industry because offices and cubicles make me grumpy. I am rarely serious except for running my business because when it comes to all things bartending and how to run a bar, I am the real deal. I have helped hundreds of men and women acquire bartending jobs with little or no experience, and I have helped dozens of bars succeed by cutting unnecessary losses while increasing their profits by 20-25%.

There are host of other things I cannot mention here for fear of being tracked down by the government and tortured. If you would like to learn more about me, or if you have any other questions, concerns, thoughts, ideas or complaints, send me a message and I will respond to them accordingly.

  1. I aspire to be write half as intelligently as you do when I grows up… Keep up with the good reads.

  2. Oh wow, you are so cute and adorable and worth seeing again.

      So much niceness here. I’m starting to like you Queen Gen. I think I’ll keep you around awhile. Cheers.

  3. So… the fact that you like chasing shiny things does kinda make you similar to a puppy; not necessarily a cute one, but you have a puppy mentality nonetheless.

  4. Real Barman, I find you exquisitely entertaining. I love reading your blog (especially the ones where you relentlessly fuck with people). You remind me a lot of myself, which is maybe why I like you so much. Haha! Keep it up, I love reading your entries, particularly after a never-ending night dealing with the moronic general public!!!

    • The Real Barman a.k.a. The Drunken Assassin

      Why hello, Jennifer. I thank you for the compliments. I hope to see more of you in the near future. Cheers.

      The RB

  5. RB, I’m loving your book (wish me luck!) and your blog is so much fun. Cheers.

  6. You’re witty and charming and have the ass of a 16 year old… oh wait, sorry I thought I was commenting on Jessica Simpson’s blog. Good stuff maynard

  7. Congratulations, you have been nominated for the Liebster Award!


    The Liebster is an award you accept with the intention of paying it forward. When accepting, you choose other blogs that you feel are deserving of more subscribers and pass the award on to them. You are not obligated to accept the award or to even pay it forward. This is just a way to get the word out about new blogs that your followers may not know. I always enjoy your blog and I hope you’ll accept!

  8. I found your site tonight by accident. The best accident ever. You are so funny and I lost a couple of hours laughing out loud. I even posted why wine sucks to my facebook (and I totally agree). You are a real man (and a babe as well) and hopefully I can persuade a couple of metro’s to read your site so they can see the error of their girlish ways!

  9. What the fudge cakes I really was interested in viewing your video and figuring out who the hell you were. Then bam, “this video is private”. Cool. No no its cool I get it, Im the chosen one who’s gotta figure you out on my own.

    Ahh totally kidding, real question though why is it private? I subscribed to you

    • The Real Barman a.k.a. The Drunken Assassin

      Hi Katie. That was a glitch. Not sure how or when it got changed to private, but it is now viewable again for everybody. Take a look, if you dare.

      The RB

  10. ‘How to get laid’… great read and you’re right about most. But every woman likes to be told she’s sexy… What about men? Because damn your sexy. Have your run for the hills yet?

  11. Classic Manhattans also require Vermouth~

  12. If I was half as funny as you are, I wouldn’t have to use my boobs to get tips. Or I could use both… Do you give classes on how to be funny? Where’s the book for that?

    • Dave Allred "The Real Barman"

      Ha. I’ll have to work on that one and get back to you Penny. In the meantime, use what ya got.
