For Brett Leek, his finest and proudest works aren’t just the classic hits, but the drinks that surprise and perplex. Leek has been working with spirits for fifteen years and brings his passion for creativity into the craft whenever he can. His creations are simple, using only a few fresh ingredients, where every note of flavor sings. It’s an experience to bring you into the present moment. If you feel like expanding your horizons, give Brett a few parameters and watch him get creative.
Originally from Ohio, Brett moved to North Carolina for college where his interest in bartending began. He opened a bar with his brothers, and worked at the Ritz-Carlton with well-known Charlotte bartender, Bob Peters, until 2017.
“I like people, I like fun, and I like spirits, in that order,” he says with a chuckle. He’s naturally drawn to the unique way bartending brings people together, the platform for innovation it brings, and making something each guest will enjoy and remember.
