You’ll want to get yourself locked in The Vault with manager / bartender Josh!
Bar that I work at: I manage and bartend at The Vault in Bushwick.
How long I’ve worked there: since we rebranded in February.
What are my shifts: I’m around most days but usually behind the bar Monday/ Tuesday/ Saturday.
What makes this bar great: The venue really gives me old Sugarland vibes, with its two-floor layout and warehouse spaciousness.
Best drink I make: Whiskey is my forte. I can make a mean Manhattan.
I love it when customers: introduce themselves first.
I hate it when customers: I hate it when customers snap or wave in your face for attention
Craziest thing I’ve seen here: You’ll have to come to our monthly Underwear Party to find out.
Other places I’ve worked: several Brooklyn-based bars like This N That (TNT) and Sugarland, as well as out East on Fire Island.
My hometown: I’m actually a native New Yorker. Born and raised in the Bushwick area.
Stuff I do when I’m not bartending: I love to just sit in a park somewhere with my dog and read. Neil Gaiman is without a doubt my favorite author.
Single or Taken: I’m “taken” by my sexy and talented partner, Haven Houston [who took the above picture].
Who/what turns me on: Confidence and a sense of humor. (Also a sucker for a nice chest.)
Favorite movie or TV show: Clue is without a doubt my favorite film, and Killing Eve is my newest TV obsession.
Favorite drag queen: My girl, Untitled Queen, is absolutely one of my favorite artists. The amount of love and work she puts into her craft shows in everything she does. She’ll always leave me gagged.
My drag name would be: “Florescent Beige”
Favorite gogo boy: CockyBoys’ Ricky Roman is my new favorite Go-Go. He’s such a sweetheart!
Favorite DJ: Of course, the Glitterbug of NYC, Matty Glitterati
