Biography & Interview »


Vincenzo Marianella
Providence | Los Angeles

Born in Italy, Vincenzo Marianella gained experience mixing cocktails all over the world before arriving in the US in 1999. After attending the Australian Bartending Academy in Sydney, he moved back to Italy to attend the Dimensione Bar Freestyle Team Association School in Cerviniano Del Friuli. He then went on to London, where he trained at Smollensky’s, one of London’s most reputable cocktail bars. During this time, Marianella met his mentor, Salvatore Calabrese, at the Library Bar, who fueled his passion for tending bar. In LA, Marianella has found his niche at Providence, where he is given free reign to create innovative cocktails with seasonal appeal. Every ingredient is fresh – you’ll find no prepared mixes here. He even squeezes citrus for his sour mixes à la minute! His dedication to detail and creating the perfect balance of flavors is what elevates Marianella from the rest, and he was voted one of the best mixologists in LA by Los Angeles magazine earlier this year.
