Born and raised in Hialeah, FL, Bryan Canales began tending bar after his stint with the US Air Force. Currently enrolled in the college of life, Canales moved to Miami Beach to pursue an elevated career in food and beverage, where his passion is in full force.

Bryan’s 10-year career has led him everywhere from family to fine dining, dive bars to nightclubs. Working in all facets of restaurant and bar operations, Bryan focuses on training, consulting and educating others about mixology and the world of hospitality. He has trained bartenders, managers and restaurant owners all over South Florida and has helped to create training materials and programs for some of the top restaurants and bars in the country.

Spending his spare time writing music & playing guitar, enjoying the beach, playing with his dog and reading about cocktail history, Bryan continues to be an influential part of the mixology world.

Bryan is a sought-after bar consultant and is constantly being asked to “look over menus”. In 2015 he was nominated for Miami’s ‘Best Bartender’ award and is still an active competitor in the cocktail competition scene, as well as a judge.

Part historian and part entertainer, Bryan is a bartender of the classic style and still loves being behind the bar serving his guests and creating new libations.

Currently, Bryan Canales is a consultant with Bar Lab and bartends at Living Room Lounge at the Faena Hotel on Miami Beach
