Lee Zaremba is a mixologist that’s at the top of everyone’s list. Known for his Victorian cocktail which speaks to the passions in his cocktail program, he is currently the Head Bartender and General Manager at Billy Sunday where the craft cocktail program is second to none. Billy Sunday is just one of nine locations Zaremba is running and works for a larger group called fc STUDIO. Everyone knows that Chicago has a stellar cocktail scene, and Billy Sunday stands out above the rest.
Billy Sunday, located in Logan Square, stocks a few spirits that you won’t be able to find anywhere else in Chicago. Their vintage collection of Amaro and Fernet are still pretty exclusive and they also represent scotch whiskey from many of the defunct distilleries in Scotland’s great history of production. But, what we love most about Zaremba and Billy Sunday, is that they use Industry Juice for all of their off-site events because of our juice’s freshness and highest quality!
Zaremba looks at bartending as a combination of elements, but the artistic side allows him to be creative and fun, especially when offering his guests a full experience upon entering his bar. One fun Zaremba pointer is that you don’t need a lot of equipment to create a one-of-a-kind cocktail. You can do so much with so little.
Zaremba’s favorite cocktail? The Old Fashioned.
