Delegate Profile

Giuseppe González


Giuseppe González has bartending in his blood. He’s a third-generation barman with a drink-slinging family history dating back to the 1950’s. Prior to his life behind the bar, Giuseppe González studied neurobiology at Cornell University. So, if he decides to cut you off, don’t even try to argue with his diagnosis -- the drinks have clearly gone to your head.

He has ably tended bar in some of NYC’s most esteemed drinking dens, including Clover Club, Dutch Kills, and Flatiron Lounge. He opened Suffolk Arms on the Lower East Side, one of the breakout boîtes of 2016, and was a partner at the infamous Painkiller Tiki Bar. However, he is perhaps best known as the inventor of the Trinidad Sour, a whiskey-based cocktail that comes loaded with an astonishing amount of bitters, yet somehow retains a sense of balance and drinkability. Despite all the other tantalizing drinks on his menus, González still serves a lot of them.

Giuseppe is a working bartender in Las Vegas now.  Currently he is working at “Herbs & Rye” and the soon to be open “Cleaver.”  He has been sober for almost four years. He only travels the world for charity work or to preach a healthy bartender lifestyle to the masses.  He only wants his fellow bartenders, “To live their best lives.”
