Bartender Wanted To Serve Pints At Floating Bar In Caribbean Paradise

A floating bar in the middle of the Caribbean Sea is looking to give one lucky person their dream summer job.

Floyd’s Pelican Bar, a mile off the coast of Jamaica, is hiring a bartender to work there over the summer – and their flights and accommodation will covered.

If you're chosen, you'll have to commute to the bar by boat or paddle board, “even when the weather is a little too beautiful to go to work”, chat to the locals, and throw the occasional fish to the resident pelicans who gave the bar its name.

No qualifications are needed and Floyd’s can be flexible and fit the dates around the applicant.

The job description on the Virgin Holidays website reads, ‘Say “Hi” to Floyd! He’s been pulling pints at Floyd’s Pelican Bar in Jamaica since he opened it in 2001. And we think he needs a break!

‘That’s where you come in — we're looking for a bartender to head out to Jamaica to take Floyd’s place for a while.

‘You’ll pull pints in one of the most Instagrammable drinking spots in the world.'

If this sounds like your dream gig, you can find more information and apply online at
