A native of the great city of New Orleans, LA, but found his love for hospitality while being raised in Texas. Upon moving back to NOLA for his undergrad, Denzel acquired a love for tasty alcoholic beverages and became fond of the history behind them. Over the last four years, he has worked behind some magical sticks such as Atchafalaya, Longway Tavern and Compere Lapin. He enjoys all spirits but is especially infatuated with rum and its deep connection to the Crescent City. Denzel loves to make his drinks, much like his life, to be simple and to bring happiness overall.
