“The best bartender in the world is also the best server in the world”. People like to drink, but they also love to eat. Five star servers have a deep knowledge of their own menu as well as a knowledge of ingredients and seasonal trends. Being a bartender, you have to have that, and then some. With such a deep understanding of ingredients, food flavors and how they blend together, you must also bring the best corresponding cocktail and drink options. Think experience and essence over fragmented pieces. High paying customers enjoy being guided through a culinary experience even if they’re sitting at the bar. The best bartenders know how to offer the most luxurious suggestions and take their guests on a journey through courses, all the way to a Chocolate Mousse Cheesecake and carefully selected Cherry wine!
