About Your Instructor

Born in July of 1971, yet appearing much younger than his birthdate shows, Rob Turek began his bartending career in the summer of 1996. Sitting on a stool at Cleveland’s Professional Bartending School (Yes, bartending school….he actually attended one), a dream began to form within him to become the best bartender possible. It was a page from the school textbook entitled “about the author”, where Rob discovered the existence of world bartender competitions, most notably Walt Disney Resorts’ Quest for the Best Bartender in the World! Tediously studying the craft and working various places from restaurants to catering halls, Rob eventually landed a gig at one of the busiest nightclubs on the East Bank of the Cleveland Flats, BAR Cleveland. Simultaneously, Rob was invited to take on a part time position as an instructor for the bartending school, and was sent to the PBSA headquarters in Cincinnati, Ohio. Before long, Rob became the Head Instructor/Job Placement Coordinator for the school, and within a year was the recipient of the National Instructor of the Year Award! During that same year, Rob competed in a local bartender competition ( a quallifier for Disney’s Quest) and won the right to compete in the World finals at Mannequins Dance Palace of Pleasure Island, Walt Disney World. To his surprise, Rob did so well in technical scoring, he ended up placing 13th in the world among over 100 bartender finalists! This was the beginning of an illustrious career. With continued success in competitions, Rob began to start making a name for himself within the industry. He has worked in some of the top establishments in Cleveland from BAR Cleveland and Banana Joe’s in the Flats, to the trendy lounges such as Wish and Spy Bar, to name a few. 15 years later, and a plethora of awards, Rob was named the Best Cleveland Bartender by The Cleveland Plain Dealer and Cleveland.com! Driven to succeed, Rob will never compromise his quest for excellence in becoming the best bartender Cleveland has ever seen. Here are a few things about Rob Turek you may not know…….

FAVORITE DRINK: The Buffalo Plains Manhattan. A crafted cocktail utilizing Bison Bacon Fat Washed Woodford Reserve Bourbon, Peppercorn Vermouth, Creme de Cacao, and St. Germain. This drink won the award for best manhattan in Ohio and took 4th in the country at the finals in NYC 2012!

FAVORITE ACTIVITY: Spending time with his neurologically disabled son, Cody. Half the week, Rob devotes his time solely to his son, helping him in his journey to improve his illness, and maximize the wonderful father/son relationship! Bartending 3 nights a week allows Rob the time and money to do this!

FAVORITE MOVIE: The Pursuit of Happyness. What the mind can conceive, it can acheive!….oh, and also the 1977 juggernaut film, Star Wars: A New Hope.

BEST ADVICE FOR NEW BARTENDERS: Stay modest! You can never learn all there is to learn in the world of bartending. Study hard, practice often, keep your head up, and succeed along the way. There is no end point to mastery!
