Carrie Clayton of Poros Aegean Estiatorio first began bartending in various dive bars in Brooklyn while attending college. She goes on to say “It wasn’t long before I realized that I absolutely loved the industry and was never going to be able to pull myself away.” After completing culinary school, Carrie dove head first into crafting her mixology skills. Now a few years later, Carrie has found herself as the lead bartender at Poros, one of the hippest spots on Market Square in Pittsburgh and she loves every minute of it. 

Hands down, her favorite thing about bartending is “the array of humans and personalities” that she gets to know and appreciate everyday. She thinks that having awareness is what makes her a good bartender and says, “you’ve got to be in tune and moving with every person and everything around you, otherwise there’s no chance of providing great service to every guest.” When Carrie isn’t wowing customers at Poros, you can find her with her daughter Adeline, “a delightfully loony little girl who can shake the best lemonade you’ve ever had!”
