Based in Seattle, Nick Davis is a bartender focused and passionate about hospitality and fine cocktails. He works for Canlis Restaurant.
His interest in bartending began as he was finishing a Bachelor of Music degree at the University of Washington. A friend introduced him to the Zig Zag Café, a classic Seattle cocktail haunt, and esteemed barman Murray Stenson. Nick was immediately captivated with the history and art of the drink, and began exploring cocktail hot-spots around Seattle, New York and San Francisco. Soon, food and wine entered the fray.
By graduation from UW, Nick's professional vision had shifted from music to hospitality. Before joining the incredible team at Canlis, Nick got his feet wet at Lowell's, The Ruins and Vito's.
Nick has pursued continued hospitality education with the cocktail-focused Barsmarts program by Pernod Ricard, and in wine through the Court of Master Sommeliers. In November 2012, Nick earned the Certified Sommelier award.
In his free time, Nick enjoys skydiving, dance, bikram yoga, and epicurean destinations near and far.
