About The Show
Welcome to the liveliest bar in town for a wickedly funny peek behind the pina coladas and plastic palms at SHAKERS Cocktail Bar.
Meet Carol, Adele, Nicky and Mel on a night out to remember as our four
long-suffering waitresses take you on a hilarious, heart-warming journey through their lives, loves, hopes and dreams.
They’re underpaid and overworked, but with a twist of wit and a splash of humour, the Shakers girls can handle the most colourful of characters - from lads on the pull to checkout girls on the town!
