PRG Allstars: Marisa Heyne - Bartender at Berkley Bar


This month, we'd like to introduce you to Berkley Bar's rockstar bartender, Marisa Heyne.

Marisa started her bartending career at Berkley Bar in 2016, and has since become a guest and staff favorite for her great attitude, stellar service, and awesome cocktails. We had a chance to chat with Marisa and and ask her a few questions.

Q&A With Marisa:

1. What’s your favorite thing about bartending?

My favorite thing about bartending is getting to know your guests and being able to build relationships with them. I’ve met some really great people where I’m at.

2. What was the inspiration for your cocktail on the Berkley Bar menu?

My two favorite things, whiskey and wine. Nothing beats a good New York sour!

3. What are your favorite activities outside of work?

If I’m not at work you’ll find me on my paddle board going down the river during the summer. And during the winter you’ll find me traveling somewhere to find new places to hike, or finding a new winery I enjoy.

4. What is something you cannot live without?

Right now my dog is my right hand man, we do everything together.

5. What is the best advice you have received?

Some good advice I have received is to go back to school. It has always been hard for me, but slowly I will finish.
