Every Town has its "Shakers" the oh-so trendy cocktail bar where everybody wants to be seen, from the check out girls to the chinless wonders, from the yuppies to the local lads tittering at the thought of a "Long Slow Comfortable Screw".  With Shakers, we are given a wickedly funny glimpse of this world, given by four long suffering waitresses, giving a fascinating view of the reality that lurks behind the plastic palms and pina coladas.



"They've come to get themselves a bev,
  and some skirt."



"It's cold outside, but they don't care. a Bermuda
 T-Shirt is all they wear!."



"Take them off, Nikki, before I rip them off you!."



The four waitresses.
