Bartender of the Issue – Jessica McNeal

Published on

Helen Back, Destin‑Fort Walton Beach Airport


Jessica is originally from Frankfurt, Germany, and has been living in Florida for the last 10 years or so. She’s been bartending and waitressing since age 16. “I love what I do,” she says. “You get to meet interesting people every single day. The person sitting across from you at the bar is never the same. Everybody has a story, and I love hearing them.”


Her favorite drink to make for her customers? Bloody Marys and/or Long Island Iced Teas.


Sadly, her time at Helen Back’s airport location is coming to an end after five years. Their lease is ending, and a new company is moving in—probably by the time this issue drops.


“It’s bittersweet that it’s ending here, because we all became family here,” says Jessica. “I know the Helen Back family will figure out how to relocate us, or write recommendations for our next adventure.”
