DC's Finest Bartenders: Hector

See also

Name: Hector E Vega

Years Bartending: 12

Where You Work: Rosebar DC (

Your signature drink: Not one specific drink in particular but I believe I'm pretty good at creating a drink on the spot when someone can't make up their mind about what they want to drink. They keep coming back for more!

One thing you wished every patron knew when coming to order: Be patient when approaching a busy bar, while it seems you are waiting a bit the likelihood is someone is already waiting before you!

Worst pickup line you've heard: Actually, nothing worst than watching a guy buying a drink for a pretty lady to make an impression but suddenly has to reach through every pocket to find nothing but the exact change for the drink...all in crumpled bills.

Best night you've ever had: This past summer had a lot of my favorite costumers all at my bar, met for the first time the son of a very close highschool friend and a great friend from college surprised me at the bar... all in one night!!

One thing about you that no one would expect: I have reinvented myself a few times... in the past I had a career in the arts, later became an amateur bodybuilder and nowadays work for the Federal government.
