Bar Star Justin Noel
Before Justin Noel was thirty years old he became Proprietor and Beverage Director of 1534 Bar, NYC. Since then he has also earned the title of Prestige Portfolio Ambassador and Beverage Consultant of his own company, Closing Time Cocktails. Not bad for someone who started bartending as a secondary career option. He used to play soccer professionally and upon visiting bars overseas with teammates realized there was almost a celebrity persona around the star working behind the bar and found the transition from a professional athlete to life behind the stick to be an easy one.
