About Brian Nixon

Brian Nixon started out mixing highballs for his parents and grandparents at a very young age. The folly of those humble beginnings instilled a passion for hospitality in him, and it gave him the tools and personality for a career behind the bar. Working at places ranging from rowdy Irish bars to upscale Belgian restaurants, he discovered he had a knack for putting together fun, innovative cocktails. Most recently, Brian tended bar at Le Diplomate and Rose's Luxury, where he exhibited a talent for both marrying flavors and keeping guests entertained. Currently, he's the Bar Manager at McClellan's Retreat, where he gets to tinker with one of his favorite spirits...whiskey.
