I guess that I am a little different on this policy. I always let the 15% stand if the guy is just bringing my drink. However, if I am actually sitting at the bar, I will tip the bartender over and beyond the 15%. This insures strong drinks and a smiling face whenever you return to the bar. Also, tipping the bartender goes a long way towards your glass mysteriously being refilled with no extra charge.
