A little bit more about Chris Tucker
Chris Tucker is currently the Beverage Director for Hook & Ladder Manufacturing Co. in Midtown Sacramento. “Tucker," as many know him, is one of Sacramento’s most experienced bartenders. Equal parts kind and confident, Chris is known for his ability to engage his peers and customers.
Chris's career began in 1993 at America Live! under the tutelage of longtime friend and mentor Jim Cornett (currently the owner and General Manager of Harlow’s). After moving into sales for Young’s Market Company in the Bay Area, Chris returned to Sacramento in 2000 to head up the bar program at Centro Cocina Mexicana for Paragary Restaurant Group. After seven successful years at Centro, Chris accepted an offer to open L Wine Lounge & Urban Kitchen where he oversaw the stylish bar program until 2011. Soon after, Tucker agreed to create the bar program for Hook & Ladder Manufacturing Co. While developing their program prior to opening, Chris tended bar at some of Sacramento’s finest bars including The Golden Bear, Shady Lady Saloon and Red Rabbit Kitchen & Bar.
Since Hook & Ladder Manufacturing Co. opened in October 2012, Chris has worked there full-time overseeing their diverse and forward thinking bar. One of the most innovative bar programs in Sacramento, Hook & Ladder Manufacturing Co. features draft wine by the glass, draft cocktails (a first in the region), a one-of-a-kind draft beer system, barrel-aged cocktails, Nitro Coffee on draft and handcrafted cocktails. All drinks are crafted with house-made mixers, fresh squeezed juices and local seasonal produce. Recently, Chris has launched a series of educational classes, called the Cocktail Academy, at Hook & Ladder Manufacturing Co.
In 2016, Chris helped develop the bar program at the new location of Kru Contemporary Japanese Cuisine. Chris is an active member of the USBG (United States Bartenders Guild) and counts members of its Sacramento and San Francisco chapters among his closest friends and biggest inspirations. Chris has also been a member of the Sacramento Cocktail Week Executive Committee for 10 years. An accomplished home cook, he is also greatly influenced by his work with some of the city’s finest chefs.
