Bartender of the Week honors a local bartender that performs outstanding acts of service for their customers and leaves an impact on the community. This week’s nominated bartender of the week is Corey “Demar” Simpson. Demar Simpson works at Tulips American Grub & Pub located on E Oakland Avenue in Johnson City, Tennessee. Demar has been a bartender for seven years, previously working in Miami. He describes his time bartending in Miami as “fast-paced and fun,” which is why he continued to work as a bartender upon moving back to Tennessee three years ago.
Demar was born in Oswego, New York and has resided in several places throughout the years. He moved to California for a period of time before moving onto Atlanta, Georgia and Tennessee throughout his high-school and college years. Demar is a father of three children and loves to work on restoring old cars and reselling them and also spending time with his family in his spare time.
