The bar is set high.
Dave Hridel, our long-time startender, is leaving the company. Yes, it’s a sad day for all of us. We’ve genuinely enjoyed his quick wit, fancy ties, and extraordinary cocktails. He’s one-of-a-kind, a Cleveland institution, and he will be missed.
Times change, as do people, and now we’re seeking a fresh face or two behind the bar. While Dave is irreplaceable, our next generation bar man or woman will still carry on the Spice service tradition. “Stylish, friendly, and refined,” according to Scene Magazine. Or, as one online reviewer says, “It’s like spending time with family every time we come in. Love you all.”
The folks who work at Spice are those who share our sustainable values…all while placing great value in the fine art of showing our guests a good time.
That said, here’s the formalities:
Our ideal candidate is a consummate hospitality professional with a sense of adventure and a passion for the craft. We’re seeking someone who’s proactive and personable, who can craft the tastes of the season and serve them with a smile. Simply put, we need a bartender who can keep pace with the demands of our clientele, all while mixing a signature drink and telling a pitch-perfect joke.
You’ll be well compensated for your experience:
- 3+ years tending bar in a high-profile and/or upscale establishment
- Familiarity with local foods, artisan cocktails, microbrews and boutique wines
- High levels of energy, enthusiasm and perfectionism
Interested? Know someone who is? Please drop us a line at Hello@SpiceKitchenAndBar.com. All candidates will be held in close confidence.
If you’d like to know where Dave is going next, be sure to stop in and toast to new opportunities! His last day is December 6th.
