Amy enjoys working at the bar she had dubbed “The Mothership” since she sees it as place where people can come to feel at home. She has called Union Café her home for the past four years. “It is amazing to go to a job where there is always a familiar smile and a friend wanting to hang out,” she said. Amy loves that working at Union Cafe has given her the opportunity to build some fantastic relationships with a wide variety of co-workers and guests.
Amy holds a bachelor’s in art therapy and a master’s in social work. You can’t help but imagine that her education has come in handy over her 12 years as a bartender. Amy loves working and being in the heart of Columbus’ LGBTQ Community. “Once I saw how thriving the gay community was in Columbus, I knew I had to be here. I fell in love with the Short North … I can enjoy the things I love, with the person I love, and be who I am without criticism. I finally feel at home in a community that supports my identity and work for a place that is a hub for so many,” she said.
Amy likes the variety of nightly events at Union, but her favorite shift to work is Sunday Showtunes Shenanigans. Surely the $5 Sunday Funday Margarita Madness adds to the shenanigans.
