Danilo “Dacha” Bozovic began his bartending career at the prime age of 20, in his hometown of Belgrade, Serbia. He found it was hard for a young bartender to easily learn what they were doing behind the bar, so he founded his own bar school called Belgrade Bartending Academy. During this time he was discovered by Dushan Zaric, one of the partners at New York’s famed Employees Only and was offered a job with the company. In 2011, he moved to New York to work at Employees Only until being offered the position of bar manager at EO’s sister concept, Macao Trading Co. While in this position, he penned his first book Barkeep: A Guide To Becoming A Professional Bartender in 2016. After a few years, Danilo was given a partner position that lead him to Miami where he opened Employees Only Miami and its neighboring bar, Swizzle, a tropical hideaway focused on rums from around the world. Danilo has also consulted on various projects including revamping Faena Miami’s numerous outlets. He’s competed in competitions around the world, most recently receiving a gold medal for the USA in France’s Remy Martin Global Academy competition.

In September 2019 Danilo opened Swizzle Rum Bar & Drinkery in South Beach, an intimate and sophisticated craft cocktail bar with a speakeasy vibe offering a selection of more than 150 rums. The concept is much like the previous Swizzle, but with less of a focus on tropical and tiki and more of an overall spirits haven featuring cocktails inspired by his travels around the world. Danilo is also in the process of finalizing his second book, Barkeep: The 2nd Edition, to be released by later this year.
