Chris McMillian
The Museum of the American Cocktail wishes to congratulate our own Chris McMillian for winning this year's New Orleans Bartender of the Year! Since our first initial exhibit at the Pharmacy Museum in 2005, Chris was instrumental in leading the effort to establish the museum in New Orleans. From the beginning he conceived the museum as a resource where expert instruction in mixology could be offered to local bartenders. His MOTAC Monday mixology series is now going on its fifth consecutive year. True to Chris's vision, the program attracts the best presenters in the country and has greatly impacted the mixology community and the local bar scene in Nola. We'd like to thank Chris for his extraordinary accomplishments- behind the bar and out in the world...and for always finding the time to welcome everyone who steps into his bar, with a smile and a great classic drink.
We love you Chris!
