The Pennsylvania Licensed Beverage & Tavern Association’s Mixologist of the Month
March 2017: Daniela Bonadies
A Beer and a Shot!
Daniela Bonadies started in the industry when she was told it was a great way to make amazing money. She started as a cocktail server and worked her way to bar tending, and the rest is history! Daniela’s favorite thing about her job is the people she meets. She has met several awesome people over her years of working in the industry. Daniela feels sometimes it’s like “Cheers” where everybody knows your name. Daniela’s has met so many people over the years, if you ever need a mechanic, a lawyer or carpenter she knows whom you should call.
Daniela’s advice to being a good bartender is patience and an outgoing personality. She feels the first one you need and the second one is what works! When asked what she likes to do when she’s not bartending at Cheerleader’s, she says “Believe it or not, I’m a big nerd and read a lot of books in my free time.” Next time you’re in Philadelphia make sure you stop by and say “hello” to Daniela.
