is welcoming a new face to his bar program and stepping back to focus more on the management of Thunderbird
After 10 years in the Vegas mixology scene (roughly the equivalent of bartending for 40 years in other cities), Roger Gross
is moving to Indianapolis to step behind the bar at Thunderbird. He's leaving Vesper Bar
in the Cosmopolitan, where he's been mixing craft cocktails at a higher volume than most mixologists will see in a lifetime.
"Vesper is the
best bar in Vegas, executing at a high level and insane volume," Gonzales said on the phone.
Taking over the bar program with Gross is Devon Boyll
, who comes to Thunderbird from Platt 99
. As Boyll and Gross take over the bar, Gonzales plans to step into a fully management-oriented role, focusing his attention on the business side.
Welcome to Naptown, Roger!
