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.

8 of 11

Hotel: The Westin St. Francis

Bar: The Clock Bar

Trained in Portland, Oregon, Dionysos was such a local legend that his defection to San Francisco 13 years ago sparked a tongue-in-cheek obit in the local alternative weekly. Now he’s a liquor fixture in this foodie city, one of the founding members of the local chapter of the United States Bartenders’ Guild, and a self-admitted cocktail geek who’s accrued a collection of more than 300 vintage cocktail books.

Signature Cocktail: Chartreuse Swizzle

  • 1 1/4 oz. green chartreuse
  • 1/2 oz. Velvet Falernum
  • 1 oz. pineapple juice
  • 3/4 oz. lime

Build in a tall glass, add crushed ice, and stir. Garnish with a mint sprig and nutmeg.
