* ''FanFic/TheApprenticeTheStudentAndTheCharlatan'' averts this, as almost every bartender seen does something other than simply clean a glass with all of their time.

* Izumo Kusanagi in ''Anime/{{K}}'', despite being a major character and second-in-command of one of the series' factions, still does this a lot when he's behind the bar at his restaurant (and Red Clan headquarters), Bar HOMRA. Used to great effect in episode 3 - when Misaki and Rikio crash [[BerserkButton into his bar]], he drops the glass, and as it falls, it reflects his face in TheScream pose.

* Another main character example in ''Anime/HighSchoolStarMusical'': In season 2 episode 3, when Kitahara and Nanjo visit the restaurant where Kuga works as a bartender ([[ImprobableAge even though he's in high school]]), they have a loud conversation about their cocky attitudes towards the audition. Kuga overhears, doesn't like their attitude, and brings them some extremely bitter drinks, on the house. What was he doing when he overheard them? Yeah, drying a glass.

[[folder:Real Life]]
* Averted in real life. Health codes do not allow bar towels to touch clean glassware, it must air dry. Thus, being caught doing this at a real bar would get you disciplined and anyone who has been through bartending classes would know better than to do so. For repetitive tasks that are health code compliant, one could wipe down the bar or clean bottles. Real bartenders often use those tasks to look busy when there isn't much else to do but appearing idle would be a bad thing.

* In ''VideoGame/StarshipTitanic'', Fortillian O'Perfluous, the [=BarBot=], is seen cleaning a glass as his idle animation behind the bar of the titular space cruise liner. The first time you talk to him, he actually gives you the glass he was cleaning.

* Bernie at the Squishy Juice Bar in ''VideoGame/JumpStartAdventures5thGradeJoHammetKidDetective''. Ironically, he's not very good at making drinks there, but people still come anyway.
