LITTLE ROCK, ARKANSAS — “Come see these badass babes tonight!” Ethan Dire posted on Facebook this afternoon, with a photo of his all female staff on the bar. Ethan opened his neighborhood cocktail bar, Captain’s Chair, in the Spring of 2014, and until recently every bartender looked like a bearded clone of himself.
“We’ve really come a long way. I scheduled a photographer to come in and take a new bar staff shot on Monday,” Ethan recounted his road to par with us in a recent conversation. “The community needs to see our work, and I can only hope it will get picked up by the local industry news outlets soon.”
“In the meantime, I’ll keep pushing our new diverse team on social media. Being a market leader in this would create great press for the bar.”
