Jess Voelker interviewed Weber for today's "Five Questions for the Bartender" feature while photographer Anne Dixon snuck in to snap this portrait.
The mag writes, "Weber brought his impressive resume—which includes stints at San Fran’s Washington Square Bar and Grill and Solstice Restaurant and Lounge—to the cocktail bar on Capitol Hill, and the rest was history.
“I worked with old masters of bartending, who instilled a very old-school approach in me. Working at industry hangout Solstice, Weber met heavy weights like Neyah White and Dominic Venegas. “Spending time with great bartenders really advanced my understanding of building craft cocktails,” he says.
But it was the late, great Neil Riofski who inspired him to be a bartender in the first place. “I watched him and I thought, ‘I want to learn how to do that.’""
