"Chief" of Staff

As a Texas native growing up in the Dallas area, I would visit Austin as often as possible. So when the opportunity to move here presented itself I jumped at the chance. 15 years later I couldn't be happier with that decision. I currently live in East Austin and when the moment arose to come run a bar in my neighborhood I gladly accepted. With over 20 years of experience in the service industry under my belt I absolutely love what I do. For me it is all about the interaction and built relationships I develop with those I encounter on a daily basis.Let's face it, at the end of the day...



From a small town in New York I learned at an early age I had a passion for taking care of people. Moved to Austin in 2000 and fell in love with the city. Truly enjoy making people feel like they are at home while making the best craft cocktails on the east side. Not very many people can say they love what they do.. But I couldn't be happier with the career choice Ive made and the company I work for! Feel free to stop by and not only be blown away by the craft beverages and selection of vinyl but the service is not to shabby as well!
