Los Angeles, CA
Brynn Smith was Sotto’s former bar director. Intrigued by a Craigslist ad offering applicants a way to learn new bar techniques, Brynn entered the world of bartending on a whim. Little did she know of the aptitude she would show for cocktail-making. Brynn learned her craft from Los Angeles cocktail legend Julian Cox, working under him in her first bartending job at Rivera. Brynn moved on to be a member of the opening team at Sotto, behind the bar from day one.
