RANKED! Our 9 Favorite TV and Movie Bartenders

We watch a lot of TV shows and movies and a lot of them include depictions of bartenders. There are even multiple shows that specifically take place in and around bars (we’re looking at you Cheers and It’s Always Sunny in Philadelphia). It seems like characters in every action movie or crime drama meet in a bar before or after whatever trials and tribulations befall them, relying on the bartender to sling them some liquid courage and provide wise counsel or a listening ear. That’s why we’ve ranked our favorite onscreen bartenders. If these barkeeps worked at our local watering hole, we’d never go home.
