How did you get started in the bartending business?
When I worked at Ecco Cafe as a manager, I learned the tricks of the trade from the bartenders and I fell in love with the work.
What is your biggest bartender pet peeve?
When customers have a bad attitude – but I do my best to improve their moods.
What is the cleverest line anyone has ever used to get you to give them a free drink?
After someone asked me for a drink and I asked why, they responded “Because I’m a hot single in your area”!
What is the best/worst pickup line you have overheard at the bar?
“Hey Beautiful, do you come here often? And what’s your name?”
Tell us about an interesting encounter you have had with a customer(s).
With one of my regulars, I enjoy singing while making cocktails and they say “I have the voice of a demon and to not quit my day job.”
If you could sit down and have a drink with anyone in the world, past or present, who would that be?
*Kim Kardashian or Jennifer Lopez because I’d love to share a drink with such a beautiful woman.
*He was totally laughing when he answered this question!
Mr. Le is behind the bar Monday through Friday days from 11:30 am – 5 pm.
