Bar managers schedule the weekly shifts, supervise workers and oversee the ordering of liquor. And, in a pinch, they may pitch in behind the bar.

In addition to their weekly salaries, some managers receive a share of all the tips collected.

Like many hospitality jobs, income varies greatly with the success of the business and the prices they charge. A bar manager in a high-end restaurant can easily earn six figures, according to PayScale.
