Cameron Winkelman – Cameron Winkelman joined the 2022 reopening team of Manhatta as Head Bartender, overseeing an innovative cocktail program that celebrates New York City. Cameron’s introduction to hospitality started in Seattle, where he worked as both bartender and general manager while attending the University of Washington. In 2016, Cameron moved to NYC and stepped behind the bar at Seamstress on the Upper East Side. The following year, he took his skills to The Polynesion, Major Food Group’s tiki bar and lounge. Furthering his mission to train with the best bartenders in the world, Cameron joined Nico de Soto and Greg Boehm’s award-winning program at Mace, where he developed a greater appreciation for unexpected flavor pairings and eventually assumed the role of head bartender. He subsequently studied a more classic and approachable style at Dante, mastering the art of the Italian cocktail. At Manhatta, Cameron takes a culinary approach to cocktails. Inspired by New York’s melting pot, he utilizes flavors from around the world to create a fun, unusual and impressively creative cocktail list.
