A Masterclass with Bar-Manhattan
School of Business Management

Ever wonder what it takes to create a tantalising cocktail? Inspired by the Golden Age of cocktails and fine drinking, Manhattan bar is synonymous with glamour and sophistication. Manhattan was recently placed 14th in World’s 50 Best Bars and 6th in Asia’s 50 Best Bars. DFBB had the privilege of collaborating with Regent Hotel, and Rusty Cerven, bar manager from the award-winning Manhattan. Rusty conducted a masterclass for our Year 3 TEP students (management specialisation) on 19 July 2021. Various aspects of cocktail making such as techniques, understanding flavour profiles, elements of good cocktails, fermentation and bottled cocktails were shared with the students. This opportunity to observe, collaborate and interact with a hospitality professional like Rusty Cerven, was a truly one-off experience for our DFBB students.
