Dawn started in the service industry out of necessity but has stayed (some 15 years) out of love. She’s worked as a host, a busser, a server, a dishwasher, a floor manager, a line cook, a bartender, and, now, a bar manager. Her interest in cocktails was originally inspired by her mentor and husband, owner of nearby Quarter Bar, David Moo. It was at Quarter Bar where Dawn, then working in the West Village, originally met the Lot 2 crew and began a lasting friendship over post-work drinks. It is that basis of friendship that makes working at Lot 2 special.
