Hand down, buddy.

Save your voice and keep your hands in your pockets—you don’t need them to attract a bartender’s attention, shows new German research.

Despite what most people think (namely that waving or yelling will grab his attention), the guy behind the tap builds a lineup in his head based on when you approached the bar and how ready you look to order, explains study coauthor Sebastian Loth, Ph.D., of Bielefeld University.

So step up to the counter, stand facing the bartender, and keep your eyes on his. Do that, and you’ll get his attention without the risk of insulting him—or looking like a jackass who can’t get service, the research shows. Watch this video for more ways to get a drink in your hand faster:
