Mariano Pimentel

Bar Manager

Born and raised in the Bay Area, I was surrounded by artists, chefs, and writers. My early years were all about embracing creativity, and I fully expected to follow in those artistic footsteps. But life had other plans, and I ended up pursuing a computer science degree at CSU Monterey Bay.

As the years went by, I worried that a life behind a desk would slowly stifle my creative spirit. It was during a casual movie night that the quote from Ratatouille struck a cord within me, "Not everyone can become a great artist, but a great artist can come from anywhere." It was a powerful moment of inspiration and I felt ready to reclaim my creativity.

So, I left the world of computer science behind and set out to pursue my own ambitions. Signing up for bartending school in SOMA, San Francisco was the first step I took to learn the basics. Now, at Foray, I aim to carefully craft experiences through the medium of a glass.
