About the Presenter

Over the past seven years, Dan Sabo has helped develop and run the beverage programs at some of New York’s top restaurants. He fostered the opening program at Five Leaves in Brooklyn, and rose to notoriety there as Beverage Director and General Manager to the acclaim of both press and public. In addition to creating and curating the cocktail and wine menu there (as well as its sister cocktail bar, Nights and Weekends), he has been involved in the beverage programs at prominent New York restaurants Whitehall Bar +Kitchen, Highlands, Rye, Artisanal, and Kampuchea. In 2012, he added his talents to the powerhouse lineup at ISA, which was nominated for a James Beard Award for Best New Restaurant. In late 2013, Sabo relocated to Los Angeles, CA, to serve as opening Beverage Manager for the Ace Hotel Downtown Los Angeles, where he currently runs beverage for the hotel’s restaurant, LA Chapter and it’s attached cocktail bar, the Mezzanine at LA Chapter, as well as its rooftop cocktail lounge, Upstairs. The entire program at Ace Hotel DTLA earned a Top 10 nomination at Tales of the Cocktail 2015.
