For someone we see mostly after dark, Brooke sure does bring the sunshine. We're always pleased to find her behind the bar or attending some cocktail-related event with us. More often than not, though, she's helping to quench the thirst of a discerning crowd.
She was a 2009 Bar Stars pick by the San Francisco Chronicle, but that came as no surprise to the local bartending community by whom she's much loved and appreciated. There were also nods of "well, of course" when she was selected as brand ambassador for St. Germain elderflower liqueur, with which she's crafted many fine drinks.
You can find her at the Michelin-starred Valencia Street restaurant Range, where she's bar manager. You'll generally be able to enjoy her bartending there on Tuesday, Thursday and Friday evenings.
