Oliver Stern, Bar Director and Mixologist
Oliver began his career in mixology in earnest at the Toronto Temperance Society (TTS), where he started as a bartender, and within five years had worked his way to Managing Partner. He left TTS to pursue the role of General Manager at Bar Begonia. While there he had the opportunity to oversee the entire restaurant, further expanding his knowledge of restaurant operations beyond the bar. Throughout his career, Oliver has participated in and won several cocktail competitions and has also had the opportunity to represent Canada on multiple occasions on the international stage. Recently, he collaborated with Auchentoshan Whisky and had the opportunity to work not only with the master distiller but also 11 bartenders from around the world to create a special single malt, which is being distributed worldwide. In this role as Bar Director and Mixologist for the Liberty Entertainment Group, Oliver is able to share his passion for hospitality and his knowledge and love of classic, balanced cocktails.
