Miami Bartender: Meet the Mixologist

Downtown Miami Bartender, Dean Feddaoui

When you grow up in a large family on a farm in Algeria, you learn something about the power of relationships. As a Miami bartender, Dean Feddaoui brings that welcoming spirit to LILT Lounge. Since embarking on his own version of the American dream in 2004, Dean has studied the craft of the cocktail, shaping bar programs at venues ranging from Anthos and Buddha Bar, both in New York, to Washington DC’s Bourbon Steak and Dirty Martini and now a stint as a downtown Miami bartender. Dean loves customizing drinks to fit his patrons’ personalities—reading people is a specialty—and using fresh local ingredients. And when he’s not mixing eclectic drinks, you may find Dean on a bike, refinishing vintage furniture or blending old French music with ’70s blues guitar. Be sure to let this Miami bartender mix you a cocktail created just for you.
