Bartending, Cocktails, Booze and Other BS from one of the world's most decorated bartenders.

Steve Schneider has earned a reputation as one of the most respected and successful bartenders in the industry. With twelve years of experience behind the bar, he has spent the last six building his career at one of the most highly esteemed NYC cocktail bars which in 2011 won the coveted “World’s Best Cocktail Bar” award at Tales of the Cocktail.

In 2012 Steve won the Cocktail World Cup, an international bartending competition held in New Zealand. He’s also taken home six awards for fastest bartender in different speed competitions around the world. Steve’s long and passionate journey into the industry was most recently chronicled in the hit documentary Hey Bartender (2013), which explored the cocktail renaissance and the inspiring people involved in its movement.

A former US marine, Steve’s first career in the military was cut short after a nearly fatal accident left him in a coma. When he miraculously recovered, he took the first job he could find – a position at a local dive bar. However, Steve found himself enjoying the fast paced environment and the science behind creating a truly stunning craft cocktail. He soon turned the initially temporary stint into a serious life change and worked tirelessly with the goal of donning the white Principal Bartender’s jacket at Employees Only. “I died in a bar,” Steve says of that night, “And I was reborn in a bar.”

Steve has appeared in numerous publications including the New York Times, MTV, Eater, Gotham, Time Out, Village Voice, Imbibe Magazine and more. He continues to strive to be the best and often represents the bar community as well as the USA in cocktail competitions around the world. Perhaps dearest to his heart however is his passion for inspiring young bartenders and sharing his knowledge and experience of cocktail culture.
