Master Mixologist Dale DeGroff, aka King Cocktail, developed his extraordinary techniques and talent tending bar at great establishments, most notably New York's famous Rainbow Room, where in the '80's, he pioneered a gourmet approach to recreating the great classic cocktails. DeGroff has since been credited with reinventing the bartending profession, setting off a cocktail revival that continues to flourish. For a summary of DeGroff's contributions, see recent PRESS

Winner of the James Beard Award for Wine & Spirits and author of The Essential Cocktail and The Craft of the Cocktail (Random House), DeGroff's enormous influence in the bar world has spanned three decades. He is also a partner in the award-winning bar training program, Beverage Alcohol Resource (BAR) and founding president of the Museum of the American Cocktail.

Saloon singing and storytelling is another passion of Dale's. His popular presentation: ON THE TOWN; Bars, Speaks, & Legendary Saloons has been performed in over two dozen cities around the world. Dale also offers a bourbon & bitters tasting seminar I'll Take Manhattans

In 2015, Dale and son Leo DeGroff look forward to working together as partners. Kingcocktail LLP will offer design and consulting services, menu development, and staff training for independent and group restaurants.
