Awake is an inclusive alcohol-free bar, spirit store, and coffee shop here to create space for peace, joy, and justice-making in our Denver community. Our shop is defined by high quality, locally sourced products and a kind, welcoming atmosphere. We’re located right on Jefferson Park, a few blocks north of Broncos Stadium.
We opened on November 20, 2020, serving our coffee menu and selling alcohol-free beer, wine, and spirits out of our window. This spring, we plan to open the inside of our space and add our evening bar program Thursday to Sunday.
We believe strongly in racial and gender equality and other forms of social justice. We meet that ambition in part by sharing two percent of sales and twenty percent of profits with local charities and offering discounts to lower income neighbors, veterans, and active service members. We actively seek partnerships with BIPOC- and women-led organizations.
We are seeking applicants who share these values and our commitment to an alcohol-free lifestyle. If you have a kind heart, believe in the beauty of conscious community, and possess a passion for serving others, please apply.
Summary of Barista-Bar Back Position
Because Awake is in a moment of transition as we move toward opening our evening bar program, we are seeking a Bar Back-Barista who is excited to grow with us into this new phase. The position will begin as soon as possible with a 10 hour/week schedule to learn our coffee and alcohol-free product sales programs and support our expanding customer base. As we move toward opening our bar program (likely in April), the position will shift into a full-time, 35-40 hours/week schedule, primarily focused on afternoons and evenings from Thursday to Sunday.
The ideal candidate will be alcohol-free, prioritize kindness and patience in interpersonal relationships, possess an industrious work ethic, apply creativity to challenges and opportunities, and demonstrate dedication to our socially conscious mission.
How to Apply
Please send a cover email, resume and three professional references to email@example.com. In your letter, please attest that you are alcohol free and describe three unique strengths you possess that will help you meet and exceed the expectations identified for this position. Applications will be accepted and reviewed on a rolling basis until a hire is made.
To Be Awake is to Be Diverse
Awake exists to be kind and welcoming to everyone we serve. We are an enthusiastic equal opportunity employer. All qualified candidates are warmly invited to apply and will receive consideration for employment without regard to race, color, religion, gender, gender identity or expression, sexual orientation, national origin, genetics, disability, age, or veteran status.
