Leadership Is An Action Not A Position

Updated: May 12

At the SAFE Bar Network, we believe that leadership is not about the role you hold in an organization, it is about the actions you choose to take to build and show respect.


We have the absolute pleasure of working with some of the best people in the food and beverage industry. We’ve learned that creating a workplace culture where people thrive and customers keep coming back really hinges on the work of great leaders.


As a leader at the SAFE Bar Network, I believe in our work because our approach is simple, manageable, and most important effective. We partner with venues t0 create a culture where the teams at bars and other alcohol-serving venues notice concerning behavior, interrupt effectively and provide support.


You don’t have to take my word for it though. Over the past three years, we’ve heard from bar owners and thousands of participants about the value of being part of the SAFE Bar Network and making a commitment to increasing safety. Here’s what bar owner and SAFE Bar Network founding board member, Kevin Fitzpatrick, has to say about our work.



We are proud to partner with each and everyone one of our 41 current members and we celebrate their dedication to increasing safety and working to give everyone a safe night out.
