CARLY MILLION ENJOYS making customers happy and comfortable. She has been doing just that for over two years as a bartender behind Barrel’s bar. Carly loves working in Barrel’s fun and fast-paced environment with the tight-knit staff. Carly says, “We are all friends and enjoy working with one another, which I think translates well to customers…they see that we are all having fun and really enjoy making their experience at Barrel a great one.”
Her favorite thing about Barrel is that they offer whiskey flights. Customers select three whiskeys and enjoy a one ounce pour of each. Carly adds, “It’s a great way to try new whiskeys…It’s always really fun to introduce people to new whiskeys.”
Carly touts Barrel’s great Tuesday - Friday happy hour from 4:00 – 7:00 p.m. All draft beers and a select list of whiskeys are $3.00. Plus, most of their small plates are offered at $5.99. Carly says, “All of the small plates are delicious!” Can’t make happy hour? No worries. Barrel has several signature and seasonal cocktails in the $7-10 range to enjoy anytime.
Carly finds all the change happening around Columbus exciting and loves that she gets to work in such an open and accepting community. She adds, “Working in the Short North is a great way to meet new people every day.”

Carly is studying to be a veterinary technician. With three dogs (Steve, Zeke and Penny) at home, that must come in handy.
