The Drawing Room
Cristiana DeLucca, Chief Mixologist of The Drawing Room, is a veteran of the service industry with twelve years of experience. She began working behind the bar to help pay her way through college, but in 2008, when she realized that bartending could be an art and a profession she began dedicating her life toward the practice. Seeking out a venue that values taste and quality in their cocktails above all else, Cristi was attracted to the Drawing Room. Night after night of sitting at the bar as a customer, studying the Master Bartenders and learning their trade, she was soon presented the opportunity to join the team. It wasn’t long before she became the Drawing Room’s first bartender apprentice. As an apprentice, she honed her skills under the watchful eyes of her predecessor, Charles Joly, as well as Tim Lacey. After one year, she was invited to join the Master Bartender team. Those years were dedicated to completing her formal training in BARsmarts and the Drawing Room, as well establish her name and reputation in the mixology community. As one of the few female mixologists that are renowned nationally, Cristi is a trailblazer who continues to expand her boundaries and bring new and exciting flavors to her customers.
