MEET YOUR BARTENDERS

FRANK

I'VE BEEN BARTENDING FOR AROUND FIVE YEARS FROM NIGHTCLUBS TO COCKTAIL BARS- 189 HAS BEEN MY HOME SINCE 2015! I LOVE PRETTY MUCH ALL WHISKEY, BUT ESPECIALLY THE HIGH PROOF FULL FLAVORED BOURBONS AS WELL AS THE SMOKY, PEATY ISLAY SCOTCHES. THERE'S NO WRONG WAY TO DRINK WHISKEY; DON'T LET PEOPLE TELL YOU THAT YOU CAN'T PUT ICE IN SOMETHING IF YOU LIKE IT BETTER WITH ICE IN IT.
FAVORITE BEV: PIKESVILLE RYE OLD FASHIONED

TREY

I'VE BEEN AT 189 SINCE DAY ONE. MY BACKGROUND WAS ORIGINALLY IN THE KITCHEN, BUT I MADE THE MOVE OUT FRONT TO CHANGE IT UP. MY FAVORITE PART OF BEING A BARTENDER IS GETTING TO KNOW THE CUSTOMERS- EVERYONE HAS HIS/HER OWN STORY AND IT'S COOL LEARNING ABOUT NEW PEOPLE!
FAVORITE BEV: GIN & TONIC
FAVORITE SPIRIT: HENDRIX GIN

KAYA

I'M A TRAVEL JUNKIE WHO LOVES MEETING PEOPLE FROM ALL WALKS OF LIFE. NO MATTER WHICH PART OF THE COUNTRY YOU'RE IN, 'GOING TO THE BAR' MEANS INDULGING IN SOCIAL CAMARADERIE AND UNIQUE ENTERTAINMENT. CASE IN POINT- BARTENDING IS A LOT OF FUN!
FAVORITE BEV: FLAMED OLD FASHIONED
FAVORITE SPIRIT: I DON'T DISCRIMINATE

NATE

I STARTED AT 189 AS A BAR BACK AND WAS QUICKLY DRAWN TO BARTENDING- IT'S FAST PACED, EVER CHANGING AND YOU GET TO TALK TO & NETWORK WITH SO MANY GREAT PEOPLE. I REALLY ENJOY THE ATMOSPHERE THAT GOOD DRINKS & GREAT FOOD PROVIDE!
