Robert Freeman has a passion for creating beverages from fresh and local ingredients, beautifully handcrafted ice, and showcasing craft spirits. Robert takes the term hospitality to new levels by giving service from the heart and creating an environment welcoming all guests with the hopes of creating a memory. He is known for taking his profession on the road from time to time, visiting other like-minded professionals in the service industry. This once landed him a guest bar tending shift in Puerto Rico at La Factoria, one of the world's top 50 bars.
