Listen to this episode of Working with guest Aleksey Kernes:
Aleksey Kernes is the guy to know if you’re trying to skip the line outside a New York City hotspot. The front of house manager at Hotel Chantelle, a nightclub on the Lower East Side, talks nightlife, table service, and how being a doorman is a lot like being a lifeguard. (It may not surprise you that he is also the founder of Hooch App, a cocktail membership program.)
In a Slate Plus extra, Kernes gives advice on how to get a bartender’s attention should you find yourself in a crowded bar.
