Home / Culture / Trevor Palmer (Pop’s Salon)


This year’s winner for Best Bartender, Trevor Palmer, has been part of the Jackson nightlife scene for 25 years, serving as a bartender at Electric Cowboy, Club Fire, Club Magoo’s and plenty more. He currently works at Pop’s Saloon, where he has been for three years.

“I’ve been at every major nightclub in the city that you can think of,” he says. “They’ve all closed over the years, and now Pop’s is one of Jackson’s last nightclubs. Pop’s has kept going because it has great clientele and live music, not to mention a dance floor that can’t be stopped.”

Palmer said his secret is knowing how to bring a smile to anyone who walks up to his bar.

“I’m a good listener, always fun to be around and always bring the party to the party,” he says. “The thing I love most is helping people connect and meet new people, along with the thousands of concoctions I’ve made along the way.” —Dustin Cardon
