New York, NY

September 2017

Theo Lieberman has probably poured you a drink before. And if he hasn’t, you should be sorry. While in film school, the native New Yorker became such a regular at the Raines Law Room that he began managing private parties. A call from cocktail legend Sasha Petraske sent him to help launch The John Dory, which prepared him to open the infamous Milk & Honey as head bartender. After five years, he left to consult and later became the head bartender at the esteemed Eleven Madison Park, landing him on Zagat’s 30 Under 30 list 2015. Lieberman’s since traded in his swizzle stick for a corkscrew: he’s currently a wine sales rep for Flatiron Wines and Spirits and head sommelier at SoHo’s La Compagnie des Vins Surnaturels.
