David Strauss — the man behind the bar.



Moving next to Chicago, David took a job tending bar with McCormick and Schmick's, and in less than a year was promoted to corporate trainer for the company. By the end of his tenure he had tended bar full time for the company in Chicago, New York City, and Washington DC, as well as training multiple staffs for new restaurant openings. It was during this time and experience that David fell in love with the classic craft cocktail and started studying non stop outside the work place, determined to find every way to construct and serve the best.
