Until recently, bartender Bryan Tamayo worked at Ox Restaurant — the Oregonian’s 2013 “Restaurant of the Year” — and Whey Bar — Playboy Magazine’s 2013 “Best Waiting Room” — in Portland, Oregon. But Tamayo decided that it was time for a change, and starting in May of 2014, visitors to Comme Ça Restaurant in the Cosmopolitan Hotel in Las Vegas will be able to experience Tamayo’s remarkably creative cocktails for themselves.
Tamayo has a passion for spirits and consistently strives to learn more and push himself to the next level. Check out Bryan’s Facebook page for more information.
What inspired your move to Las Vegas?
I was looking to learn more about the industry. I know that Las Vegas has a budding cocktail culture and I would really like to be apart of that. It’s interesting how Las Vegas is surrounded by liquor but only recently has it had a focus on the craft of bartending.
