Working: The “How Does a Club Doorman Work?” Edition

Aleksey Kernes is the guy to know if you’re trying to skip the line outside a hot New York City club. The front of house manager at Hotel Chantelle, a nightclub on New York’s Lower East Side, talks nightlife, table service, and how being a doorman is a lot like being a lifeguard. (He also, of course, has his own app, Hooch, a subscription service for free cocktails at select venues.)

In a Slate Plus extra, Kernes gives advice on how to get a bartender’s attention should you find yourself in a crowded bar.
