Rumi's Kitchen is currently seeking exceptional Bartender candidates to join our team at our soon-to-open Washington, D.C. location!

*** About Us ***

Rumi's Kitchen first opened more than a decade ago in Atlanta, the result of years of development by Chef / Owner Ali Meshgali. Showcasing the flavors of Iran -- fresh herbs, kabobs over an open-fire grill -- quickly won loyal guests at the original location and led to a second Rumi's Kitchen in the Atlanta suburbs in 2016.

In 2020, Rumi's Kitchen is opening across from the convention center in Mount Vernon Square, D.C. and in Midtown ATL, with our sights set on the future. 

*** About You ***

We are searching for ambitious, friendly individuals who will thrive in a fast-paced environment.

Bartenders are responsible for: preparing cocktails; helping guests navigate our menu, cocktail and wine lists; developing relationships with guests; setting a positive example for more junior members of the service staff.  

While we would prefer candidates with proven hospitality experience, bartending knowledge is not required!

*** What to Expect ***

Paid menu and beverage training prior to our opening will last approximately two weeks; our comprehensive training will require commitment to complete.

Paid training and team building sessions will begin in mid-February, with an early March grand opening.

*** Why Rumi's Kitchen? ***

*Growth potential

*Proven audience for our concept. (Take a look at some media coverage via the links, below!)

*Consistent scheduling guaranteed

*Health insurance after one year of full time employment

*Full & part time positions available 

*High standards, structured & positive working environment

*** How to Proceed ***

Please submit an application online; we will review all submissions. 

In-person interviews will begin the third week of January in and around the D.C. metropolitan area.

We look forward to meeting you!
