Kurt started his bartending career at the prestigious Samoset Resort in beautiful Rockport, Maine in 2000. While there he bartended for events for the executives of Volvo Group as well as numerous weddings. In 2002 Kurt moved to Saint Augustine where he was quickly hired by the Conch House. During his ten years there he excelled in making tropical drinks as well as high volume and fast paced bartending. It was during this time that he joined the inaugural staff of the new Panama Hattie’s where he became a crowd favorite.
After spending nine years at Panama Hattie’s fast paced and high volume bar, the time came for him to take the next step in his bartending career. He decided to bring his talents to Meehan’s Irish Pub where he soon became the bar manager. During his time as bar manager, Kurt implemented many new standards of operation for all three uniquely different bars, created numerous seasonal drink menus, trained new staff, and placed all liquor, wine and beer orders. Kurt is also a three-time winner of the Judges Choice and People’s Choice awards at the Annual Maritime Heritage Festival Bartending Competition.
Joshua, a resident of Saint Augustine since birth, has been working in hospitality since he was sixteen years old. He really started learning the ins and outs of the business when he was a front-of-house manager at Serenata Beach Club, a private club that hosts many functions such as weddings, charity events, and private parties. Josh learned many valuable and important lessons about the hospitality industry by helping to organize and execute these events. Joshua has also spent an important part of his career at Panama Hattie’s. He started with serving for a short time and was quickly moved up to bartending and management for almost nine years. During his time at Panama Hattie’s, Joshua was hired to work private weddings and various events in places such as Palm Coast, Jacksonville, Ponte Vedra and, of course, his home of Saint Augustine. Helping form Ancient City Bartending Co., Joshua hopes to continue to expand his knowledge and skills for many years to come.
