“The moment we open the doors is my favourite,” says Flavio Tripepi. “That moment when you are expecting a busy night and you want to be ready for it. I find it very thrilling.” Tripepi has worked as a bartender at Zeta Bar just on a year and enjoys the variety of guests a hotel bar gets throughout the week. “On Saturday night we operate as a nightclub, so our crowd changes into a younger one. It’s nice to find a hotel bar that has a buzzy vibe and DJ sets.” For this project, he chose to cross a Bloody Mary with a New York-style Reuben sandwich. “I find a Reuben is amazing to accompany a Bloody Mary. Except for the tomato juice, I changed the classic ingredients.”
