In the restaurant and nightclub hierarchy, the bouncer at the door of an establishment needs to be tough in order to get rid of ttroublemakers. Inside, the host/hostess and members of the wait staff need to be friendly to give clientele a reason to come back. But, those who work behind the bar have to be equally firm and forthcoming, a balancing act Michelle Jones upholds as she mixes and pours drinks, all while providing an attentive ear for customers.
