Frequent flier Jonah Disend, 37, CEO of New York-based company Redscout, travels so often that the only bars he has time to check out are the ones in hotels. That’s not a bad thing, since barkeeps in lobby annexes aren’t fusty lifers anymore. In fact, they’re often a hotel’s secret weapon in attracting discerning guests like Disend.

Hotel: The Dorchester

Bar: The Dorchester Bar

Gloriously old school, the dapper and charming Morandin has been a Dorchester fixture for more than 30 years—but still nabs accolades; he was recently named Bar Manager of the Year at the Class Awards (the Oscars for cocktail masters). He was also chosen for a Tanqueray ad campaign featuring the world’s 10 Best Bartenders, hotel-based or otherwise. Morandin was a crucial partner overseeing the bar’s recent revamp (in concert with designer Thierry Despont), including the sinewy, showstopping long bar.

Signature Cocktail: The Martinez

  • 1 oz. Dorchester Old Tom Gin
  • 1 1/2 oz. Punt e Mes
  • 1/2 oz. Maraschino Luxardo
  • Dash of Dorchester Boker’s bitters

Shake together and strain into a martini glass. Squeeze an orange twist and drop into drink.
