What kind of CV should I send for a bar job?

I have completed an application form for a part time job in a bar but they have requested a CV as well. My CV is quite long and detailed as I am doing a "career" job part time as well, this is just to supplement my earnings, as I have a small daughter (this is an evening job). Should I rewrite my CV and make it really short, much less detailed and bullet-pointy? Does anyone have any tips?

I run a bar and when i look at cv's i look for experience, if you have any, or if not required for the job or applicant doesnt have then i think it should be short and simple not 4 pages long. it should grab the attention and list relevant skills you have even if not in a bar, perhaps customer service

No more than 2 pages; write it slanted at the employer rather than yourself (not too many I am's). State quickly how employing you will benefit them and mention any relevant experience. The first paragraph has to grab their attention so they read on. There are a lot of free web sites that help people to write CVs. Good... More

A CV is your advert for yourself, to get what you want, which is the job. Make it relevant only to the work in question... More
