Johnnie’s Jazz Bar & Grille is dedicated to Johnnie Genevieve (Miller) Bills, a piano player for the silent movies at the very first B&B Theatres in 1924. Johnnie’s original piano has been restored and is sitting on our stage. Johnnie (so named, by the way, since her father had selected Johnny as a boy’s name, expecting his third child might break the tradition of daughters) was playing at The Lyric theater in Salisbury, Missouri when Elmer Bills bought the location in 1924. Smitten by her natural charm, love of life, and youthful exuberance, Elmer fell in love and the two married a few years later. Their son Elmer Bills, Jr. would join forces with Sterling Bagby to formally create B&B Theatres. Johnnie would work at the theater her whole life, selling tickets and making friends with all who came to enjoy the magic of the movies. She was the life of every party and was beloved by everyone she encountered. A prodigious bridge player who loved a good bourbon, Johnnie lived the life she wanted and enjoyed every second. Our diverse selection of signature bourbons is a tribute to Johnnie, and we invite you to try one (or three) as you enjoy some live music, great food, and time with good friends. So tune up that old piano, deal the cards, and raise a glass to Johnnie.

Qualifications

Job Duties include, but are not limited to:

  • Welcoming customers, reading and listening to people to determine beverage preferences, making recommendations, and taking drink orders.
  • Knowing the drink menus and informing customers about new beverages and specials.
  • Selecting and mixing ingredients, garnishing glasses, and serving beverages to customers.
  • Checking identification to ensure customers are the legal age to purchase alcohol.
  • Adhering to all food safety and quality regulations.
  • Handling cash, credit, and debit card transactions, ensuring charges are accurate and returning correct change to patrons, balancing the cash register.
  • Maintaining a clean work and dining area by removing trash, cleaning tables, and washing glasses, utensils, and equipment.

We are open 365 days a year. In fact, many traditional holidays are very busy times for us. So are weekends. We want everyone to enjoy holidays and weekends, but when working for a movie theatre you must be prepared to work some of those days. You will usually find we can be very flexible with scheduling.

We offer great service and a great time to our customers! You must be able to leave personal problems and conflicts at home during your shift.

For our part time jobs, we are happy to employ students, retirees, and those with full time jobs. We will do everything we can, within reason, to accommodate a wide variety of schedules. It is important during your interview that you let the manager know about any conflicts that may affect your availability.

Employees receive great benefits, including discounted movies, popcorn, soda, and candy!
