Pulling up at a popular bar right after dinner has its benefits. For one, a bar like Makati Poblacion’s Run Rabit Run is usually packed in the evening. Arriving a little early at 8pm, we had the pleasure of chatting with the man at the bar: Enzo Luna.
Enzo is one of the city’s most personable bartenders, and that’s saying a lot. Since we had the opportunity to talk with him, we asked Enzo what his favorite thing to talk about with his guests is.
“Asking about their day is the most used opener,” says Luna. “And from there stems different interactions.” This is the key to both great conversation and great bar service: opening up discussions and listening.
“Mostly the ones I enjoy are knowing what they do as a career or hobbies they have… I get this feeling of wonder hearing stories from different paths and backgrounds. Especially if it’s from different industries.” He goes on to say that various people bring different points of view to the bar — and that’s OK. “People in business and banking to people in environmental protection. Basically, it’s knowing that everyone has their own experiences to share and learn from.”
Keep up the great work, Enzo!
