Garrett Alvarez (Gare-Bear!)

General Manager

A native of New York City, Garrett got his start in restaurants at Aji restaurant group while attending school in Boulder.  Upon leaving school, he gained experience working in clubs in LA, and then continued on to New York City where he worked at Serafina, and then Rive Bistro in Connecticut.  Garrett began to hone his bartending skills working at Brass Monkey in the meat packing district, but found his true passion when he got hired back in Colorado at Corridor 44, followed by The Crimson Room.  “Working with Justin Russell and Nick Maverick showed me not only just how to sling drinks but to build something special.”  It was at Pinche Tacos that Garrett progressed into management.  He continued to develop his hospitality skills at Bar Dough in Denver, where it became obvious to owners he would be a great fit as General Manager of their latest restaurant, Senor Bear.
