Stirred, Shaken &
On the Rocks
Geoffrey Zakarian’s simple but influential philosophy on food has been applied to the cocktail program, designed by Mixologist Brian Van Flandern. By choosing the freshest ingredients, hand-selecting glassware and providing extensive training to the bar staff, each cocktail is both a beverage and an experience.
Brian Van Flandern, Mixologist and Cocktail Historian, is heading up the bar program with craft cocktails, fresh-pressed juices and extensive training in the art of making a balanced drink.
One of the world’s most sought-after mixologists, Van Flandern has consulted at Michelin Starred restaurants, was crowned “America’s Top Mixologist” by The Food Network, and has countless other accolades and credits to his name.
